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.

Talk Nerdy To Me T-Shirt

Another geeky one, yay!  I'm not the first person to use 'Talk Nerdy To Me', and I darn well hope I'm not the last.  But I did my own little design on the bottom, also I sewed the wording onto mine, instead of buying a lazyboy pre-made one. 

I typed the wording out in my favourite font (courier new- which looks very typewriter-ish so I thought it was apt) and printed it out.  I pinned it to the t-shirt and sewed over the typing in white.  It looked really good, then I pulled the paper away, and it looked less good!  But I sewed over it and was pleased with the result.

My little design along the bottom looks like asterixes (or is it asterixi?) but then you turn the t-shirt over and it's Pacman!  And the little asterxis are the little things Pacman eats.  I was thinking of doing Ms Pacman (as Marge Simpson said 'Ms Pacman struck a blow for feminism') but I couldn't be bothered to get the red thread and her lipstick and eyelashes freak me out anyway.
