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.

Birthday Fabric

My sister bought me some lovely fabric from the Victoria and Albert Museum (well she ordered it online but same diff), and some nice buttons. 

There's a metre of each fabric, so not enough for a full dress, and honestly I'd struggle to make much but I saw this pattern on the interwebs:

I could use a pattern like this, and buy a plain blue cotton fabric.  I'll use the flower fabric my sister bought me as the skirt and the plain blue for the bodice.  And made a nice summery this space.
