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.

Fabric, Clothes, and Hair

Good haul today as I went shopping prior to a hair appointment. 
First a stop at Dorothy Perkins and I got these:

There's a cute blue jumper with seahorses on it, a plain black jumper, sensible black work trousers, and a little black dress.  The best part was that they were all in sale- yay!  At full price it would have come to £93!  But they were priced at £40 for all four, and at the till I discovered there further discounts and it came to £27!  (Too many exclamations marks???)  But I'm pleased with my purchases as they are cute but also practical, and on sale. 

Then to Fab Works the fabric store, where all remnants are £1 now.  There wasn't much there today that I wanted and I wish, wish, wish there were more/better fabric stores around here.  This one is the best I've been to though, and I got four pieces for £4.  The light blue piece is huuuuuge but I'm not sure what would be appropriate to make with it, I'd like to make trousers with the dark blue (has pinstripes) but  I've not have a great success rate with trousers, the red flowers piece is very thin so it may become the bodice for a dress, and I'm hoping to make a jacket from the cream piece.

From there I went on to get my hair cut and it looks nice and neat now.

 Check me out- super sexy hair.
