It’s Crafting Time

As I have a few more hours “free time” during the day, I’ve been planning sewing and craft projects. I’ve had a couple of busy weeks sewing  items for my Etsy shop, and I still feel like there isn’t enough hours in the day. So many plans…. never enough time to get them finished!

So my plans for the next 2 weeks are:

– create a couple of interesting purses using this fabulous South African Shwe Shwe fabric to sell on Etsy –

– Design and plan the construction of my first ever patchwork quilt using this beautiful Liberty fabric, which I bought in London before I moved to Prague. It looks as though I will have enough fabric for a single bed cover … so hopefully it wont take me months to complete!

– Buy some modge podge (or is it mod podge? somewhere in Prague …Any ideas??!) and cover these boards with some interesting tribal or geometric fabric. Yellow doesn’t really work in my apartment 🙂

– Create a wrap around skirt pattern (or something similar) for a reversible skirt. I have doubled sided Shwe-Shwe fabric that I think would look great if both sides could be seen and worn.

– Sew a cushion cover using this Shwe-shwe Madiba fabric. I’d like to find a complementary fabric to use on the back, and have Madiba’s face just on the front.

And here is something I finished today –

I’ve also started taking pictures of fabric and products I like and putting them on Instrgram.

I like to sew, cook. I use a vintage Singer Sewing machine to make the clothes and crafts shown on this website. Be sure to check out my Etsy online shop where you can purchase some of my items and my Facebook page
