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.

Under the Sea Look Book

It's my BIRTHDAY!!!! I am currently in Barcelona having an awesome time (hopefully), I have written this in advance and scheduled the post.  Everyone that knows me knows I dream of becoming a mermaid so it was something of a joy and frustration to put together this on-land sea themed look book.  I think this is the most coherent of my look books, you can put together an outfit as well as adding oceanic d├ęcor to your home; an arty Wave cushion or toy octopus anyone?   I personally favour the shell bag, but the Issey Miyake dress is something else, not sure how wearable it would be around town?

Do 25 awesome things today to celebrate the first 25 years of my life :)
