Special treasures……

Special treasures…..

Do you have  special treasures that you have bought or been given, that you or your child will treasure forever ?   This is what I have been thinking about while making these I Spy Quilts.

This I spy Quilt has a little of everything…………  Teddy Bears

  Cars

Animals

Pirates

Mickey Mouse

Robots

Ferris Wheel

Planes

all of these items are a special treasure or memory to a little child.

sewnbyleanne_ispyquilt2_treasureThese I Spy Quilts will be available in my Etsy Store next week for purchase.  They are both “one of a kind” bespoke quilts that will become a special treasure for your child.

Can you think of special treasures from your childhood?

I had a special Orange checked woollen blanket that I took everywhere with me.  There is even a photo somewhere, when I was 2 sucking my thumb holding onto it while it was on the washing line.  I will dig it out sometime and show you 😉  Heather, was a rag doll that also went everywhere with me.  it was bigger than me, when I was given it.  It has crying stains on the front, as when I was sad, she was the first item I hugged.  Heather was Holly Hobbie’s best friend !

My husband had a special – Teddy bear – “Noonie”.  He was very sad when his mother threw him out.  Shhhh! I can’t tell you how old he was at this stage 😉  He gave our eldest son recently his treasured Lego Fire Engine he was given on his 8th Birthday.

I have so enjoyed making these Quilts and will enjoy passing them onto the next generation to treasure and love <3.

Blessings,

A New Home for Sewn by Leanne

Welcome to our new home here at Sewn by Leanne.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, my prior website went down and was not returning with ease……  so here we are rebuilding….  But as always it is much better to look at things with a positive attitude and build a better site and make those changes I’ve been thinking about and not acting upon.

moving-on  So what does 2015 hold for Sewn by Leanne ??   Here are just a few ideas I have jotted down in my notebook during the week

  • Regular Tutorials
  • Participating in the The Bee Hive
  • Inspirational characters
  • Interviews with my favourite bloggers !!
  • Things I have learnt along the way, building Sewn by Leanne.
  • New Products
  • Sewn by Leanne’s favourite creations ???  Can you guess ???

What would you like to see from Sewn by Leanne ???

In-life-its-not-where-you-go--1...

This is one of my favourite cartoons……..  My blog is all about my endeavours to place smiles on the faces of my readers and the clients who receive my creations.  My travelling is with you… as without those who read my blog……. It is  simply filling in a diary online – so please fell free at anytime to comment and write any feedback you have.

That is terribly reflective, but it has been to journey to get my blog up and running again this last week, through a “couple” of tears, hugs from my children and hubby and chaos during the holidays….  it is BACK.  Yay !!  Now there are lots of smiles and laughter here again and I can go back to sewing and quilting, two of my absolute loves !

Creations that are new to Sewn by Leanne this year, are these gorgeous Girls Handbags:

These gorgeous Little Girls handbags are stunning and each one is One Of A Kind.  Each bag has an unique appliqué on one side and beautiful ruffles on the inside.  It is closed with a recessed zipper.  These bags have been made from the stunning Wee Wanderer range of cotton fabric from Sarah Jane.  Combined with a soft Linen, and fully lined, these are great bags that are large enough to hold a purse, notebook and pencils.

Look out for more here, as I create them…….

Please be patient as I re-create the rest of my website…….. until then all my products can be purchased at www.sewnbyleanne.etsy.com.  You can also follow me on Facebook and Instagram.

Many Blessings,

Leanne
