'Memories in pattern and colour'

Tag Archives: crafting

ImageImageThis must have been my first sewing project in almost years…shame full I know, but due to lack of energy and what not, I just have not been up to much! But me and my mum were in C&H fabrics a few weeks ago when we found sewing patterns were at half price (OMG I know!!! *AMAZING*) and that’s when we found this gem of a pattern! Ive been wanting to make a cute little collar for a while now, and this was a really good pattern to try and ease me back into sewing as I have never been really very good at it.  this project was just perfect to build a little confidence 🙂

So much so, I am attempting my next, in a very very slow manner. I find I am the slowest at sewing, mainly due to the fact i have M.E and have to rest after short amounts of sewing, and then there is the setbacks…oh crumbs I have had so many of these in this current project. If it was not for my amazingly talented mum I would not have got this far! It will be  a miracle if I it get completed. However I am determined!!! I have the completed item in my imagination, and that makes me very happy, so I just have to keep that in mind every time i make a silly mistake! It is a real test of patience, not something I’m used to!

So here is a sneak peek! Any guesses as to what it is?!

Ok so lately i have started a sewing project, my first in possibly a couple of years actually. I have been trying to make a skirt, from a vintage grey check fabric, and although the process has been fun, it has been really frustrating. Firstly the pattern size came up massive (why does this always happen?! or too small!) so it needs taking in loads, and secondly, more importantly I don’t really like the skirt…Its a bit of a shame and is making getting it finished difficult. There is nothing like a unfinished project to make you feel bad about yourself, but I just know if I saw this skirt in the shops I would walk straight past it. Maybe I will change my mind with a few trimmings and I promise I will show you the finished skirt soon 🙂 But for now just a couple of snaps! again Mr Bingley plonked his bum down on my stuff, he loves being with me in my room, I think generally as there is usually always stuff to sit on the floor! im pretty messy! but obviously I tell myself it is because he adores me!

One of my favourite online shops at the moment!

This shop is great for quirky gifts and treats for yourself, or just a good place to take in some design and colour! Both of which i love!
