You may have noticed that I haven’t blogged properly for a while, and my last sewing blog was months ago! This is mostly because my machine started acting up, and after trying (and failing) to fix it myself I just sort of gave up! Now my degree is done and I have oodles of free time I just want to jump back on it.
Do you ever have days or months when you just give up with your favourite thing to do? Uni along with a part time job didn’t leave me with much free time, but I don’t want to have a lull like that again, I missed it so much! I have a longgggg list of things to make now, a travel make up bag, a crop top, a jumper, an a line skirt ect, and I have material for most of these things, so now I just need to get on it! Closely following other bloggers will give me inspiration in no time, I’m sure 🙂
It’s been a busy couple of weeks for me, and I haven’t had time to complete any projects, which I need to rectify! This post includes my favourite tutorials for things that I plan to make (very soon, hopefully!), what’s on your ‘to make’ list?
All I need is a good hole punch and this tutorial for a leather journal looks incredibly simple, and incredibly effective.
Hand printed fabric is just gorgeous, this idea could be great for wrapping paper too.
This cushion cover with piping is actually half done, but as it’s a Christmas present there won’t be any photos of it for a few weeks, shh
Fabric scrap twine is another thing I want to make before I wrap presents, it’s a great way to use up leftover bits so all I need is a bit of time.
This beautiful smock dress looks so comfy for everyday wear, and could easily be worn in winter with tights and a chunky cardy, or as a cooler summer outfit.
Using bleach to create one off fabric designs is a wonderful idea, this tutorial is excellent.
So term at Uni has started again and I haven’t had enough spare time to finish any of my projects, but there’s a few I’m really excited about getting going with…
I’ve bought some tartan material to make this picnic blanket skirt which will be perfect for Autumn, won’t it?!
I’ve got a gorgeous ball of wool to make a long chunky crochet scarf. And my laptop should be nice and cosy too, if this sleeve continues the way it’s going. Can you tell I love cooler weather?
I’m always clicking on stuff, but there are my favourite finds
