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.

T-Shirt Customising Again

Bought another T-shirt to customise, this time in a delightful dark red colour (the same colour as one of my long sleeve tops that I basically live in).  I was planning to iron on some transfers my sister bought me ages ago and embroider over the top to create a totally awesome design.  Anyway, to cut a long story short the transfers didn't transfer and I have a bright pink burn mark on my carpet (doh), and I had bits of carpet stuck to the top corner of my t-shirt...

My solution was to use the bits of t-shirt I had cut off, the neck was too tight so I cut around it and the sleeves a little to long so I cut them shorter, to make a flower for the top of the t-shirt. Not sure I'm happy with it totally, but tbh it's so frigging rainy I ain't gonna be wearing a t-shirt anytime soon.
