You might remember I posted about some fabric I bought at Walthamstow market some weeks ago. Here’s what I did with it.
I recently spent a few days back at home, in the comfort of the countryside and near to my sewing machine and, as ever, was looking for a quick make for a Sunday afternoon. And I had just the thing, an untested skirt pattern that I knew I had to give a go.
Happy new year everyone! I hope your Christmasses were awesome and included lots of sewing patterns and haberdashery. Mine certainly did, but I’ll leave that for another day. 2013 has been a good year for me, craft and career wise, and so I wanted to pay tribute to it in a little round up. I’ve included links to all the relevant blog posts, so if you want to read more, click away.
January – I was mostly busy knitting and reading up about knitting.
May – I finished a dress, something I hadn’t done in a little while.
August – I learnt to press flowers for the first time. I also started an internship at Prima magazine in August, which then led to paid work up until November. Blogging was slightly sparser during this time, but I still enjoyed many perks, like writing about all things crafty and attending press events, such as the Cath Kidston Spring/Summer 2014 show.
November – I saw the product of my first stint at Prima on the shelves. Prima Christmas Makes was a magazine dedicated to crafty Christmas tutorials. During November I also attended Renegade and Lou Lou’s Vintage Fair.
All in all, I’ve had a good year. Let’s hope 2014 will be another craft filled year for us all.
