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.

Fabric Christmas Tree

Using the same method I used to make my cactus pin cushion I made a christmas tree out of left over fabric.   I had two types of green fabric which I cut into 6 triangles.  I sewed them together in pairs to make 3 triangles, I then placed them on top of each other and sewed down the middle to create 6 pockets.  I then stuffed them with toy stuffing.  I sewed the bottom and attached a roll of brown fabric for the trunk.  Alas poor tree does not stand up and has to be propped but I have not had chance to buy a pot to put it in :(
