'Memories in pattern and colour'

Tag Archives: design

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?!

Please excuse the poor quality of this photo, this is the first post I have made using my smart phone, but as you can see the camera is shoddy! But ah well, I hope to do more picture posts whilst on the move in the future. Although I certainly think you can’t beat a proper camera and a good sit down at the computer! This print cheered me up today, I found it in Dorothy Perkins on the sale rail, whilst desperately looking for some jeans. As I am sure you know looking for jeans can be tiring and not always fruitful, so to find this joyful little ditty print made me smile, and took my denim blues away!


December is creeping up on us pretty quick, and pretty soon it will be Crimbo, which means one thing. Money is tight!

Sooooo, us ladies always like a hand  bag or two and so this Wednesday I am finding vintage bags for under £15! They could be a sneaky cheap pre Christmas treat for you, or a bargain gift for a loved one.

So here are my top picks, I love them all, but the first and the last are my favourites! I love them!

The dress has no great age, and pretty much modern, but I just wanted to share this lovely fabric design. The dress does not fit me and im half tempted to chop it about to make it fit/something from it…Just not sure what I could make from it! any ideas?
