keep your treasures safe cotton pouch

wow I am a bad sewing blogger but nonetheless my creative juices are starting to sew, I'm actually almost finishing a skirt that I started a few weeks ago in sewing. I just have to finish the hem and put the elastic in the waist. But this is a little pouch I made using vintage cotton and lace for detail, quite a neat pattern really as it can be unisex.

Its a good feeling being able to make things, I suffer post traumatic stress disorder and along with it at different times depression, anxiety and so on so its nice to know I can still feel useful and make these pretty items. Blogging is fun, I really need to get into it more for my sewing blog!

shabby chic hand made book mark

Gosh I'm a bad sewing blogger lol I've been caught up with working on my needle felting entries for the craft fair I'm entering next week. But this is a little shabby chic book mark I worked on. I hand drew the little whistling hunch back character and sewn around it on my sewing machine. I've used scraps of maroon material, black ribbon and black felt.

I hope you like it.

A new year for sewing

Ok being the new year I do hope to get some sewing done! I sadly didn't get photos of it before sending it off to my new friend Cindy of ThimblePrims she's my new penpal however hopefully she might be kind enough to send me some photos so I can show it off. A simple tissue holder which I was quite pleased with. I also sent her some needle felted animals and a little cookie I felted seeing as I can't send actual food across the waters sadly.

I am vowing to actually stop using this blog as a storing folder! lol I must explain I am a member on a couple of avatar sites, Ruffles is actually one that I own and created. I'm a bit of an internet geek at heart.

But avatars are little characters you can dress up and personalize in the sites online forum, shops and what not. Its like a forum but with added features so its cool.

But projects I hope to show son
cute crafts
book reviews (I'm addicted to buying books)
and things I've collected related to my sewing crafts lol I've actually just tidied up my sewing space so hopefully I will get back into it again.

enough rambling next post will bring photos!
