#sewphotohop Day 30 – what’s next. This is my next project – a @grainlinestudio #hemlocktee in stripey jersey. Any tips for making this? I also want to catch up on some blog posts and tidy the tip that is my sewing room!
#sewphotohop Day 29: storage. I have a lot of fabric which is stored in tubs in my sewing room but because there’s so much I don’t really know what I’ve got. I bought these trading card files so I can store swatches of my fabrics in a folder. That way I don’t have to empty 8 massive tubs on the floor trying to find things!
#sewphotohop Day 27: other interests. I have lots of other interests – I enjoy cooking, running, reading, music, theatre, history and taking photos but I especially love travelling!! I currently have a few trips booked/planned over the next 12 months and I can’t wait! I’ve started buying something sewing related on my travels so whenever I use it I can be reminded of my adventure!
#sewphotohop Day 26: Close up. This morning I found out that I had accidentally sewn a pin in to my trench coat when I took it off this morning and dug a hole out of my finger on something sharp! I’d got this mangled 2 pence piece in some change this morning so I used the hook bit to unpick the seam and rescue the pin!
#sewphotohop Day 24 & Day 26: one piece or separates/favourite era. I got this pattern in the swap at #sewbrum last weekend and it sums up both prompts for me – I am definitely a separates girl and I love the styling of the Fifties, even if it’s not what I wear all the time! (PS thanks to whoever left this beaut of a pattern on the swap table!!)
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!
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!)
