It's been a while...

I can't believe it's been a year an more since I last wrote. I knew I had been slack but didn't realize it had been that long. whoops.
I'll give you a quick recap of the last year... my son turned 8, my daughter 4, we moved house. I did alot of sewing and finding what boorah designs was. (in this time I did alot of random items which I either loved or didn't)

I've now come to the conclusion that I love making pretty ruffles and vintage looking items. but how to bring these two together to create a place that boorah designs fits?? that's my next challenge to tackle.

Now as I welcome 2012 I am working on some items that incorporate everything I love into my sewing, so I'm thinking girly, pretty, ruffles, with a touch of vintage and lace.

Something for the boys...

With a little girl and an older boy, I find I tend to always be creating girly items. It's not that my son doesn't like what I create it's just that he doesn't seem to have the same passion that my daughter and I have with fabric. (I can't blame him it's not really a boy thing and it certainly doesn't compare to his playstation or soccer in his world.)

So this week I am going to be working on boys items. To start it off I have a gorgeous pair of boys shorts to share with you...
I fell in love with this fabric when I saw it and just wish I sewed when zac was little I could just picture him at 2 wearing a pair of these. I
may never have got them off him but at least they would have been funky...
I am thinking of adding an applique' top to match but am still a little unsure. What do you think?

springing into spring

We have farewelled winter for another year and welcomed spring. I can't wait to get started on all the pretty skirts and dress for the spring. I have decided to continue to produce mostly one of a kind items. I enjoy this more rather than continuously producing the same items.

I would love to know what my readers think of my new items. You can pop over to
to view them.

Winter, how I love blankets, soup, rain....

I didnt really notice that winter was here until yesterday. It was freezing in brisbanes north especially with the rain around. We just plotted around all day it was great I even managed to get some sewing finished.

I am still making winter clothing items and will be until the demand for them stops, but I am really excited to be starting the spring collection. Skirts, Skirt, Skirt and of course shorts. I am a huge fan of pinks so it is unusual for me to work with other colours, however yesterday I tried something new and I came up with the cutest little girls outfit in size 2.

I love how it turned out and cant wait to continue the spring collection. If it available for purchase in my madeit and etsy stores.

It's Raining, It's Pouring.....

The sun is hiding today and the rain in bucketing down so it is the perfect day for creating. Lilli is watching high 5 and dancing around the loungeroom so she will be busy for at least an hour. (i'm hoping) So to finish the folding and my coffee and then I will be heading into my craft room to create up a storm.

On the agenda today is cord pinny's and pants ready for the BrisStyle Indie Twilight Markets Friday 30th April, King George Square, Brisbane City.
