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.

Green Velour Top

Its a velvet christmas- except not quite because this is velour which is cheaper!
I copied around an existing long sleeve top to make a new long sleeve top from green velour to wear out for a christmas meal with friends.    Here are some terrible photos I took!  I was working quite quickly and didn't finish off the edges very well and I discovered that velour curls up a crazy amount and the top kept rolling up out of my skirt, which was quite annoying.
