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.

Sun Cola- Mini Craft Project

For a little present in boyfriends awesome stocking I thought I would take inspiration from Dead Space (a game he likes) which according to the Dead Space wiki features a drink called Sun Cola (apparently there are a number of vending machines and posters). 

It was very low-fi craft but I printed out the Sun Cola logo and taped it to a can of Coke.   I thought it was a cute idea that looked nice.  Boyfriend, however, didn't understand what it was and tried to pull off the sticker (with me screaming "no don't pull it off- it's Dead Space!!").  Well once he understood and had googled it he went 'mmm' and left it on the coffee table.
