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.

I was never a shoe girl but slowly I have amassed a few pairs, none particularly fancy and most uncomfortable because I opt for cheapo ones which fall to pieces rather quickly, and I have delicate little feet :)  I have found some cute and fun shoes online I thought I'd share.
Starting with lace ups of course...

Heeled brogues style shoes...

And some a little crazier...


  1. Where did you find the pretty mint coloured brogues with the pink laces? They're lovely.


    From a blog called Grosgrain- although I think she may have just googled for them?
