Occasionally it seems that world is in pure chaos with nothing making sense, but that doesn't matter as long as I can sew. Sewing is a form of art, or at the very least creativity, and a form of expression. A great outlet for the tension of everyday life. Also you can make cute things. The craft revolution is truly taking place, old skills are being revived by a new generation, but with a seriously modern twist.

I've made Mario pillow cases, a giraffe print background, and turned duvet covers into summer dresses. I enjoy making something unique, special, and me- then I like wearing it and watching it fall to pieces or not fit properly. Then I enjoy (slightly less) fixing it.

One day I shall have a room filled with glorious fabrics and boxes of notions, and on that day I will have found my nirvana. But until then this blog will exist as my virtual haberdashery and sewing room. Hopefully you'll enjoy looking at my creations as much as I enjoy looking at other blogs, and you'll be inspire to make something of your own.

Giraffe Pencil Skirt

Another pencil skirt, but decided to spice it up with some animal print.  I made a cute bag from cow print fabric my sister had bought and dsicarded several years ago, and then I stole.  And got all animal print frenzied and bought some giraffe.  I used the same pattern from before (check my other posts) and used polyester giraffe print fabric and cream cheapo lining fabric.  I spent a little bit more than I normally do on the fabric (£7.45 per meter plus postage) but its still a skirt for less than a tenner.  It was easy and quick to make, and is slightly too tight like all good pencil skirts (but who needs to sit down?).

 I was planning to wear it with a black top or vest but I tried it on with my new pink shirt (which also rocks, I watched too many stylediet videos on youtube and was informed that pink is good for my complexion, and she was wearing a pink shirt so I bought one) and enjoyed it quite a lot. :)
