Brand new spools for my new overlocker, left in reach of this little monkey! My fault entirely. On the upside his teeth were clean afterwards.
Butter wouldn’t melt.
Another Amy Butler make, this time a clutch bag. Loved making this complicated piece. I still have not used it, but I do love to look at it, sad I know!
..totally gets in the way of sewing and creativity. When I was 49 life was sweet. Doing fad diets, embarking on ridiculous fitness regimes was all the norm. FFWD to 50 and the bottom has dropped out of my world. Everything aches, everything it is not even funny anymore. Everything is effort. Going to my sewing room is a mission but once I am there it is bliss. Tonight I went to look at some fabric and my Go Baby fabric cutter. I ended up cutting two boy baby quilts , which is handy as i need two. I cut uneven 9 patch pieces in brushed cotton , pics to follow!
I love, love ,love Tilda fabric. I couldn’t throw away any scraps and decided to try to and make something useful. I smile every time I see this bag.
Using up scraps from a Tilda fat quarter pack I randomly joined the pieces together and cut out a make up bag. Pattern is from the book ‘Amy Butler Style Stitches’. Its a nice long bag that means you can fit in a brush or long comb. One of my favourite pieces.
This make was a bag swap. The idea being on this Facebook forum people agree to make a bag and post to a another member. This was a great idea, sadly I didn’t receive one back but I had lovely feedback from the lady that received this 🙂
