Today’s activities and also #sewphotohop Day 23: inspiration. The people I have met through social media are all massive inspirations to me, whether it be because of your style, your prolific sewing or your positive outlook on life! Today I was at #sewbrum and got to speak to old and new friends and I’m already washing and plotting my makes with today’s purchases! Big hugs to everyone I spoke to today, apologies to everyone I didn’t get a chance to speak to (I might not have spoken to you because I was bit nervous because I like your blogs/instagrams haha!!)
I’ll write a short post about Sew Brum so keep your eyes peeled!
#sewphotohop Day 22: Texture. I have to admit – texture is not something I conciously think about when fabric shopping. If it feels like it would be comfortable to wear, I buy it!
photohop Day 21: Go-to pattern. I don’t often make the same pattern twice as there are so many others I want to get round to sewing, but Sewaholic’s Granville shirt has become a firm favourite with at least 2 more planned!
#sewphotohop Day 20: Seasonal. I basically wear the same thing all year round – big fan of layering! Always a top, cardigan and jacket! My new trenchcoat is autumnal on the outside, but summer all the way inside!
(Keep your eyes peeled for more information on the blog soon!)

#sewphotohop Day 19: Library. I love sewing books and have a few that I go back to again and again. Some on this shelf are recent additions that need a proper thumb through under a blanket! I’m after any recommendations for books about trouser fitting though!
#sewphotohop Day 17 & Day 18: Knits or wovens/buttons or zips. I don’t wear a lot of clothes made from knits, and I don’t really wear anything fitted enough to need a zip, so I’m going to go with buttons and wovens! That being said, I have a few knit fabric projects planned for the next few months. It’s something I avoid sewing but I’m determined to master it! I also want to do a few samples for different kinds of zips – haven’t done anything other than invisible zips for years and I want to practice!
#sewphotohop Day 16: wishlist. I have lots of projects projects and fabrics on my wishlist – jeans that ACTUALLY fit are hopefully my next big project! The other big thing on my list is time! More time to sit and sew or write would be amazing. Somewhat ironically, I didn’t post this yesterday because I ran out of time…
#sewphotohop Day 15: Sewing space. My sewing space is ALWAYS a complete tip with stuff on every surface – it needs a proper sort out! But I do have a giant window to sew next to and an even more enormous cutting table to work on, plus lots of room for books, patterns and my fabric stash. I do want to make better use of the room and be more organised – it’s a bit like a jumble sale in here at the moment and having seen SO many beautiful, elegant, tidy (!) spaces posted for today’s #sewphotohop prompt, I’m determined to make my space more coherent and less chaotic!!
#sewphotohop Day 14: Wardrobe. I don’t have a wardrobe – I have a clothes rail that I really don’t like 😧 this, plus a chest of drawers is the majority of my clothes, but although I don’t have a lot I still want to reduce it down to pieces I’m more likely to wear. I also need to make/buy a few less red/orange things… 😂
#sewphotohop Day 13: Gamechanger. For me it has to be starting a blog in 2015. Through that and instagram I’ve discovered this amazing network of sewing people and considering I started it on a whim it’s been so much better than I ever could have hoped!
