she’s moving home


Yes, I have shimmied over to wordpress, having been constantly frustrated by Blogger and it’s complete refusal to upload my pictures. Mind you, taking a look at the work below, it’s debatable whether it was worth the wait. Ladies and Gentlemen, I proudly present the most squint effort at sewing you will ever see!


It’s a lavender/rice warm bag in case you were wondering. I have a stack of lavender in the house after buying more than I needed for a Brownie project so I decided to have a go a making one of these! I borrowed a sewing machine from my good friend Kath and set to work. One broken needle later, quite a lot of swearing and finally giving in and finding the instructions online and here we have it. i know it doesn’t look like much, but I don’t think I’ll ever be prouder of something I’ve made! The fabric is a Cath Kidston teatowel – I was given 2 for Christmas and they are far too pretty to dry dishes with! The back is an old t-shirt I had (I am very skint just now, hence casting about the flat for things I can use). It wasn’t the best choice in the world as it wrinkled and stretched like crazy. Still, I’m very proud of myself!

  1. Hello! Good try (not in a patronising way!) re the sewing – anything worth doing takes practise. I love the fabric too.
