Does anyone else get major sewing anxiety whenever they’re away from their machine? I certainly have tonight. In fact, I am so desperate to sew something I’ve been contemplating buying a travel sewing machine to carry around with me. Other ways I’ve been distracting myself include knitting a blanket and pinning to my ‘DIYs and crafts’ board constantly.
If you’ve read my last post you’ll know how much I love the Sudley pattern. It’s so easy to wear and quick to make up. That’s an all-round win!
I’m really not sure how it’s been so long between posts except, you know, life got in the way. I’ve still been sewing, I’ve still been working hard and writing about crafts, just not blogging about it I guess.
I’m currently enjoying a well deserved week off and have come home to relax and reacquaint myself with my sewing machine. In preparation, I bought a load of sewing patterns, even more fabric and had way too much planned to actually accomplish it all. But I did manage three dresses and they’ll soon follow in (hopefully) quick succession.
I bought the Flora dress pattern from By Hand London a while ago (around the same time I made the Vogue 8723) and it wasn’t high on my priority to make straightaway, I have to admit, as the two patterns were quite similar.
I’ve had a few lovely adventures recently, a lot of them involving food and place I love to visit. Here is just a small selection of the things I’ve been doing, as told through my Instagram account. I’m @aneiradavies if you’d like to follow and, if you want to be extra nice, go and follow @primamakes too as I run that!
