Now I have sewn ever since I can remember - my Mum made many of my clothes and taught me. I did my needlecraft O level in my spare time as I couldn't fit it into my timetable. At college I made three of my ball gowns plus a few others for friends. I was costume manger for two college productions. Over the years I have made many furnishings for our house and since the children have arrived I made clothes and fancy dress costumes for them. And just recently I have found a love for quilting.
However I do not sew as much as I would like, mainly because of the time factor. Where as I can make a card, or scrap a page in a relatively short time period, sewing takes more effort. Hence many unfinished projects! Therefore a whole afternoon of uninterrupted crafty time, seemed to be the perfect opportunity to get them finished.
A mobile phone case which I have given to the eldest - she loved it.
A pin cushion - because I needed one. I have cut out some more of these to make for our Church Summer Fayre.
A cute little purse from a pattern in an old sew hip magazine - also more in the pipe line for the summer fayre.
A pretty button up bag which could be used for make up?
A bag made from an old pair of jeans - this was an experiment. I may make more if it meets the approval of my eldest daughter.
Another cosmetics bag - this is a cloth kits kit I got when I subscribed to sew hip. I intend to use this to store our phone chargers etc when we travel.
It felt great to get all these done! I now feel I can give myself permission to start some new projects!
How about you - do you have many UFOs hanging around?
