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.

Vintage Fair

Took my little self to a vintage fair (unfortunately I went on Sunday not Saturday and there are much fewer stalls and the atmosphere is lacking) and bought a pretty skirt to wear on my jollidays and a book to read. But here are some awesome things I should have bought:

 Boyfriend (who came with me and complained, and moaned, and rather reminded me of how annoying I was as a child when I was taken anywhere- but he is not a child, he is 31) did not care for any of them, which rather made me want to buy them just to wear when out with public with him but alas I do not earn enough for that kind of spite.  One day...

The bottom jumper btw is a cartoon of the Own and Pussycat :)
