I pulled out the fabric box two weeks ago and I’ve just been staring at it daily with no inspiration, but today I thought I’d give it a good bash.
The inspiration was still a little lacklustre until I found an old sewing pattern for a pair of knickers, AND then I came across a scrap of polka dot material that I would have otherwise tossed away.
Would you believe it was the perfect size for a cheeky wee pair of panties?
So now I’m dancing around my house in a pair of freshly sewn red polka dot knick-knacks hehe
I completed a refresher sewing course through Skill Sucess online (with the help of a free trial from Groupon), and I feel more confident about getting behind that machine.
So much so I ordered some new shirting material from Fabricland.
And that’s another story…
I sat reminiscing the other day about a past project of mine that did NOT take off the ground. Mostly because I was sick and very shortly after hospitalized, but you know, shit happens. Then I started thinking to myself, why did I let that dream go? Sure my life for the past few years has been all things mental health & recovery BUT I have plenty of free time now and would you believe it, an entire closet full of Vintage & Consignment pieces I’ve just so happened to collect over the years.
So in the past few days, I’ve put together a wee Instagram store for myself.
I even found what was left of a collection of skirts I made and sold. There are two left and it put me in the mood to hunt down shirting material and make more of those skirts. People loved them last time and they are just so gosh darn cute!!
So that’s lockdown adventures of this week…
That and lots of doggo snuggles… and in about 45 minutes some sushi.
Staying at home all day is not half bad.
I hope you’re having a beautiful day <3
