Holidays!

I'm on HOLIDAYS now and I've started sewing again!

Yesterday I made a SECRET CHRISTMAS PRESENT FOR CHARLES and hemmed some fabric to make a silky scarf for my mum...

It was soooo hard. I swore and threw chiffon at the sewing machine because I couldn't do the tiny hems. But I did it in the end! ^.^ it's good!

Today I'm making an A-line skirt (again for my mum) for Christmas. It's a vintage pattern I found somewhere. Quick and easy!

I have a big pile of fabric in my room with post-it notes on each piece... "dress"... "skirt for mum"... "re-fashion skirt"... "bows"... "blouse"... "pyjamas?!"... etc. I mainly kept that pyjama fabric so mum wouldn't throw it out! I bet I won't even make pyjamas.

I'll attempt to take photos of all the stuff I make, and all the stuff I made and didn't take photos of yet. Mainly skirts, as I am terrified of actually making a blouse. What is wrong with me.

  1. On holidays! *jealous*
    I seem to avoid things with button holes for some reason. They're not even that hard to do...

    Finally tried the bicarb shampoo thing - I was quite surprised how well it worked!

  2. Haha that's great! I find it's problematic without conditioner though. I'm trying to stick it out - Let me know if you still like it after a while!

  3. I'm glad you found some projects to do and I'm sure that Charles and your mum will love their presents.
