Day 22: Trims and Haberdashery. I love trimmings but I actually don't have much (at least in comparison to my fabric stash...). I did stumble across *actual* button heaven in Shanghai earlier this year though - who wouldn't want an entire room for trim and haberdashery?! Day 23: Repurpose. I took this at @thegbsblive on Saturday but … Continue reading #sewphotohop Day 22 – 29
Day 15: Close Up. This is a close up of the sequins on my dress for #thedressmakersball back in May 😍 Day 16: Procrastination. As you've probably spotted, I procrastinate a lot by sitting on the sofa under a pile of blankets. I am normally reading about sewing related things but not actually *doing* anything... (took this … Continue reading #sewphotohop Day 15 – 21
Day 8: Inside Out. I like a good neat seam finish. I used french seams for a recent make and remembered how nice they look inside! Day 9: Past Era. As someone who has lived in jeans for more than a decade, i don't have a particular favourite past era that I love to see. … Continue reading #sewphotohop Days 8 – 14
Hello! I'm taking part in #sewphotohop again this year. If you don't yet know what #sewphotohop is a photo challenge organised by Rachel from House of Pinheiro. You can check out the list of daily prompts here. Last year I did a post every day but this felt a bit like I was bombarding you … Continue reading #sewphotohop Days 1 to 7
#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 … Continue reading #sewphotohop Day 29: storage
#sewphotohop Day 28: wow. This was a recent 'wow' moment - I went to see my parents and my mum presented me with a giant bag of pattern weights that she'd made me! She also made and machine embroidered the bag for me! 😀
#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 … Continue reading #sewphotohop Day 27: other interests
#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! … Continue reading #sewphotohop Day 24 & Day 25: one piece or separates/favourite era
#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!
