A Quick Sewing Project

I got blindsided by a friend’s birthday earlier in the week; entirely my bad as I haven’t been well and wasn’t keeping track, but it was frustrating as I wanted to do something special. So, a very quick sampler!

I’m annoyed at it as it hasn’t turned out exactly how I wanted, and if I had given myself more time I would have done a full stitched one, but obviously the creator can see all the flaws, blah blah… I’ll see what the recipient thinks of it today anyhow!

And as an extra – aren’t these two cute?! The new kitten (not mine!) has definitely sorted everything out!

A Crafty Update: March 2019

I’m sewing again! I got some beautiful fabrics back in 2018 from The Spinning Weal in Clevedon, and I hadn’t yet got round to doing anything with them. Well, I finally pulled out my patterns, and I’m making two things – a skirt out of the solar system, and a space dress. I managed to lay out everything and then cut it all, so the next stage is to start sewing…

(And yes, the skirt has pockets. The dress might do if I can work out how to put them in, because POCKETS!)

Unfortunately I didn’t take a picture of the solar system fabric, but it’s awesome.

I’ve got enough space fabric left that I could make another skirt, or I could potentially use it for my Dr Who cushion…which, thanks to a day spent sewing while listening to family talk, is progressing quite fast!
