..... sew little time!
I've had a very creative weekend (yeah, I know - same old, same old) ..... but today I am exceptionaly proud of myself. I'm not a natural "sewer" but when the mood strikes I can rattle of a mean bit of bunting, which I did yesterday for a friend at work:
However, today I excelled myself which, given my limited sewing skills, isn't hard! I wanted to make an apron and, after spending hours on the internet without finding an easy, free, downloadable pattern, I decided to draw my own. So I did :-) then I cut it out from my chosen material, sewed it up, undid a few bits a few times and eventually I made a rather sweet apron! It's taken me a while and it's too dark to take photos today but I will share it with you soon if you promise not to laugh!
I also made these little beauties over the course of this weekend:
A book for a friend to give as a Christmas present. I've totally fallen in love with Cuttlebugs embossing folders, especially the paisley one:
And, behind the drag curve, I've discovered Nestibilities ..... I think all my photo mats will be made this way in future!
I also made a word book which is a rather lovely mix of lilac and turquoise (not grey despite how it looks in the photo):
And, I was lucky enough to feature in my friend Joy's blog - she's taken loads of lovely photos of the baby book I made for her granddaughter. I had so much fun making this and I'm thrilled that she likes it (and looking forward to making two more as soon as I get a moment!).
