Design, create & enjoy...

My tags have arrived hooray!!!!!!! now I bet get that Janome cruising...

I have finished my very first fully designed item and my 2nd is only needing a hem and some buttons. I tried my hand at making a pattern form a block. I drafted the basic block in a size 6 and then got creative. I had a pile of sketches and decided to give it a go.

My sheets of sketches..

After watching Project Runway Australia, I came to the conclusion that I was making it out to be far more technical than it would be. I was right. I loved the whole experience. I forgot to take any photos of the during process *(I was obviously far too enthralled) but shall post some soon of the products.

I have had my labels delivered and now need to get my designer brain around some serious sewing...I am excited and anxious at the same time. Hey its a hobby at this point, although after reading Craft Inc. this week I think someone wrote that book just for me.

Also I found this totally awesome website, check it out....I had never heard of digital scrapbooking till today!

A few things I have made recently.

Pardon the toes, these are a few things I have finished but hadn't taken shots of. Every time I try to catch a model in something new, I am usually confronted with a dirty scruffy hairdo that just cannot be touched or a grumpy poky out tongue face that does not want to stand still let alone smile.. i refuse to bribe at this point, the reward is for good behaviour not the opposite.
Oh and I had a girls day activity on a day of no school the other day, what fun (and mess) a little fiddly but good fun and some very pleased little girls...

Happy sewing, crafting and remember that super glue is not good for skin!
