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.

Halloween Costume Ideas

Well I don't if boyfriend and I shall be attending any Halloween soirees this season but that shan't stop me from thinking up some cool costume ideas.  Alas that an internet search of halloween costumes leads one to some unsavoury suggestions*, so here are some options I ave found that are awesome without being prostitutey.

There's wonder woman, Lego people, star trek, poison ivy, nautical, robots, Leela, Roy Lichtenstein, Daleks, 3d glasses, gun, Florence from the Magic roundabout, and Downton abbey.  I'm leaning heavily towards Wonder Woman as I already have high waisted denim shorts, but I can't think how to do the red boots on the cheap.  I thought about doing Florence last year but it became surprisingly expensive as I would have had to buy every component. I quite like the artiness of the Lichtenstein but I'm not really a make-up gal.  Watch this space...

*Incidentally if you are planning to put together an outfit that involves wearing pumps I suggest preparing yourself before typing 'pump' into your chosen internet search engine**
**If you choice is not google you are insane.
