Christmas songs are booming through the house, and I am finally home! (Well, I got back on Thursday but shhh). We are having an early Christmas today, before we go off and visit family on the big day. This morning we opened a couple of presents each, and mine were sewing related, yay!
I got a teeny weeny travel sewing set;
And, – I am so so so happy Yay!- I also got ‘Love at first stitch’ by Tilly Walnes. I have heard so many good things about this book, and I am so so excited to start sewing her creations! The Francoise dress looks beautiful and I think I have the perfect material to make it in, but I am just waiting on finding it cheaper – whether it be on eBay or in a sale-. Anyway, very exciting stuff!
As you can see from the title, and also if you follow me on instagram, I spent last night painstakingly piecing together PDF patterns. They will be the death of me, they take so long!
I also printed cut and stuck the leggings pattern I bought while on discount, and now just need to find/order some appropriate material and I will have a go in the new year. (All very exciting as I bought myself a gym class membership, which starts in January…)
The last pattern I put together was the Fancy Tiger Crafts Sailor Top I won, which I am also excited about finding fabric to use. I may even stash bust (ha ha ha) when I get back to uni; one of my wardrobes is getting very hard to close with the piles of material in there!
If you are interested in seeing all the things I have won so far, have a look at my winnings page.
Here are some photos of the chaos from last night;
What a mess…
Happy holidays everyone!
