Sewing Solo

Hello! After the sewing day with my Mum and Katrina I went on a sewing binge and kept working with my little sewing machine! I think I have fallen in love! Hehe! After a trip to ikea, dunelm and hobbycraft to stock up on sewing supplies I first decided to try making a bag - just fairly simple, well that's what I thought until about 5 hours later when I was finally finished! If you were a fly on the wall whilst I was making it you would laugh so much, I went about some things in a very odd way, my brain new what I needed to do but I had trouble getting that into the fabric!

The photo is a little dodgy, sorry, I took this late at night!

The next day I decided to carry on sewing and after chatting with my mum I went onto bag number 2 - only this time with a bottom! I was making this with my boyfriend's mum in mind as a little get well gift. I felt a lot more confident with this bag after my lovely mum pointed me in the right direction. I also made a cushion with the same fabric and some ribbon embellishments and buttons. I would like to enter the bag into the 'Passion for Papertrey' Challenge - Material Girl

This shows the bag with the little gifts for my boyfriends mum

This shows the bag and the cushion together, for some reason I didn't take a photo of the cushion on its own!

I've had so much fun working with fabric and its most definitely something I will carry on! I have lots of ideas in my head of things that I want to make. A recent trip with Katrina to Liberty Bell in Chester has confirmed my love for fabric - I think I bought about 18 fat quarters! Hehe!

I'll be back soon to share some more creations. If you have time pop by Katrina's blog (link above) as she has some lovely candy up for grabs. Thanks for visiting and for any comments you may leave, until next time....
