cam's shirt and alice's dress

Just a quick update in-between art and french work...
Wanted tot share some photos of my brother's birthday present - which took me a while but no where near as long as i thought it would! Didn't use a pattern, used his school shirts for reference though!

lovely checked silk.

 And because I love her, I have bought some fabric for Alice's birthday dress.... We went to our local haberdashery because shopping local is good!!! This was alice's third choice because there wasn't enough fabric in the other rolls :(
So we ended up with a floral green, with a green lining and a green zip. The fabric is by harry glass I think - the same designer as of the fabric i used on my skirt in a previous post.
I'm hoping her dress looks awesome - you deserve it alice baby! xxx

Lots of Love, and -as always - thanks for looking

cakey cake

Haven't posted for a while, but hey ho - haven't had the time. Art is very slowly sucking the breath out of my lungs and the sanity from my mind...
HOWEVER, Without further ado
It was my baby brother's birthday on thursday so I made him a cake - and a shirt (post to follow). Well, I say baby brother. He is taller than me by FAR, but technically younger therefore I can bully him still ... with the aid of a stool...

I did a smooth icing, which involves a really runny consistancy
 and a lot of fridge action

mummy did the letters in a fondant...

Used my new bunt tin, so it was like a huge doughnut.
I filled the hole in the middle with haribo... YUM

took off the letters and drizzled over an awesome cream and mars bar sauce...
Heart attack alert

with the letters, haribo bears and candles on top

yum yum yum

Thanks for looking
