Another week has passed and we are back to handmade Monday again. I have made a few things this week, but as they are for the Owl swap and love swap I can’t reveal them yet! However I thought I would share with you some photos of my sewing room
This is the sewing table Maeri donated along with a fab cotton reel storage rack which I bought from The Makery
I love my sewing room (really the dining room which I have taken over!) and I love having jazz fm on while I sew! I have a lot fabric which I have tried to contain in boxes!
I visited Maeri during the week and she showed me a cape/poncho that she had made. She had designed it herself however told me about a tutorial she had found that gave really simple instructions on making one. I knew I had the perfect piece of fabric so decided to whip one up yesterday afternoon. The tutorial is so easy and very straightforward, perfect for beginners.
The tutorial uses a jersey fabric and so allows for some stretch in the fabric. The material I used didn’t have any stretch in it and as I have quite broad shoulders the fabric doesn’t sit quite right around the neck, but I think it looks quite nice on.
I also wanted to share my decorated cupcakes from my class this week
I think the mouse is my favourite, they almost look too good to eat! (however needless to say the cake tin is now empty!)
I hope you all have had a productive week, looking forward to reading about your creations for this weeks handmade Monday, hosted by the lovely Wendy at 1st unique gifts.
