Carnival Info

The Light Up Leederville Carnival
Sunday 1 December 2013
12pm – 8pm

A fantastic opportunity for the Leederville community and wider metropolitan Perth to visit, soak up and celebrate one of Perth’s great cultural assets - Leederville!

What to Bring?

The carnival will provide retro furniture, umbrellas and shade all around the precinct to soak up the action in comfort, but bring your hat and sunscreen!
A water bottle! We will have a 2000 liter water refill tank available near Oxford Park so bring a bottle and fill it for free.
Cash! There are limited ATMs and EFTPOS facilities in Leederville so we encourage people to bring cash on the day.
A light. Between 7.30 - 8.00pm the Leederville Lights will be ignited and we ask everyone to bring down a light of some sort to help us light up Leederville on the night. Get creative! Ideas have been glow in the dark balloons, stick torches… 
How to get there?
Train and bus – Leederville Station is in the heart of Leederville, as there will be limited parking available on the day, we recommend people to travel via train.

New stock for upcoming Christmas Markets

After being told many times to start making tablet beanbags (yes I mean you Robin) I finally did it!
My dear friend Kathrin sent me a Birthday present from Switzerland, a very cool sewing magazine and some fabrics. One project in the magazine was about making tablet beanbags. I adjusted the pattern a little bit and here is the result:

I made them in 2 sizes, for normal tablets and also a baby version. I think I might need a tablet now that I have the accessories for it ;-)


My sister Natalie also sent me some fabrics for my Birthday and some crafty magazines (don't you just love when they know what you like?). 
I used some of it to make more sleep-over drawstring bags as they all sold at the last market. They are just big enough for little girls essentials.

Love Olivia! These are pencil cases, inside they are lined with plastic coated polka dot fabric. They can also be used as make up bags for "big" girls.

I am very busy making some more Christmas decoration, you can see the picture of my popular button-nose-moose and birds in my previous post.

Need to go back to my BERNINA now, still heaps to do. Bye-bye for now.
