My Sewing Machine Broke

I have to take it in for a service as well but the tension wire snapped off. Its only a small piece but it helps control the stitches.
So of the time being I’m finishing up my owl jumper and planning my weekend in Melbourne.

Pinterest Inspired Wrap Top

I can across this pin today and I thought “damn it, I’m making that” http://pinterest.com/pin/150518812522228534/?s=3&m=wordpress

And I did

I bought the fabric from the op shop for a dollar and in the afternoon sewed it up. I add a high collar for a more unique twist and I feel pretty damn chuffed!
Have you wizzed something up in an afternoon?
Happy Crafting!

Busy Long Weekend

This long weekend I spent it sewing and playing Pokemon Omega Ruby.
I sewed a top

Made a new pin jar with a cross stitch top

So much fun!
Hubby bought me a copy of Pokemon Omega Ruby and I’ve been enjoying heaps. The graphics are amazing compared to the older red and blue which I played to the end. I also love the choice of being a boy or a girl.

I hope you’ve all had a great crafty weekend!

The Great British Sewing Bee

On Saturday I went to my local cafe to join in the first Creative Cartle and we made a bunting. But during the great time there a few of the girls were talking about the Great British Sewing Bee. So today I decide to check it out on YouTube.
I was so surprised to see one of my favorite blogger Tilly! I was stoked to see how she works. I’ve been reading her blog since I saw her in Mollie Makes.

Still learning to sew

I love creating my own clothes for many reasons. I’m short and pair shaped so a lot of things don’t fit quiet right plus I love to stand out. Which is why I made Gertie’s sultury sheath dress (you can check it out here.)

image

I used a light weight drape fabric with a full lining. I’m still learning to sew which means I made heaps of mistakes. Like sewing pieces upside down. But after a whole day working on the dress and only stopping briefly for lunch I finished it in one day!

image

Its lovely and I am so proud of myself, another reason why I love making my own clothes. The sense of achievement I get when I have a beautiful unique item to wear.
Are you working on a new item?
Happy crafting!
