While I haven't been sewing, I've been organising. And cleaning my house. Who knew scrubbing a stove was so satisfying? I did tell Mr S that the stove has been scrubbed within an inch of it's life by me (Mum does it every time she visits, never fear) twice while we've been living here. Yup, you guessed it. Pregnancy makes me clean. MUST. SCRUB.
But here's what I've been crafting and sewing recently...
|I was gifted these epic bags of fabric...|
yes. I know I have a problem.
|I decided it was high time I made my own bias binding.|
|Success! My technique needs tweaking, but we got there in the end.|
|Pattern pieces for my new handbag. It's Simplicity 2381 if you were interested.|
|I made play doh for my little lady. This set of photos was taken in 5 minutes.|
|I made my own fabric labels, using Ros from Sew Delicious' tutorial.|
PS. Ros is an absolute sweetheart. I want to make her cups of tea all day.
Also, she's selling some ace vintage fabric in her Etsy shop. Go and take a peep!
(not that I'd know. I don't need any more fabric. *cough*)
|Label hastily |
a bias binding boo boo. (BBBB)
|Bag front starting to come together. My goodness I love this fabric.|
|Finally, my sewing helper. She sits on my lap and now pretends to|
sew as well. I almost died of the cute.
