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.

Mini Bunting

After the astounding success of my regular sized bunting for my room, I moved on to mini bunting to go in my* locker at work.  It should have been a ten minute job but my sewing machine was not playing friends and it took a frustrating amount of time. I also didn't have very good ribbon options, and none of my threads seemed to match colour wise. I found an old piece of ribbon I used to wear in my hair.  I ended up gluing it :(

It looks ok, not super cute, and you can see the glue, but we'll see how it looks in the locker.  

*I share this with my colleague and we decided to stick up some pictures of stuff we like.
