This week my creative space is in a state. The husband decided he was going to paint it and instructed me to 'pack up your crap, I need a clear workspace!". Ummm, NO!
But we did make a compromise. I had to pack most things into my cupboards and only keep one table for machines. All other chairs, racks, etc had to be packed away.
Anywho, the painting tarps and lack of access to my things has meant that creating has been far less enjoyable... boo!!
I did manage though, to sew a failed garment, which is pictured here.
Vogue 8511, which I was hoping to make for an engagement party this Saturday night, but the fabric didn't sew well and the modifications I made to accomodate my shape didn't work. I think I need to go to a pattern alteration course.
To make up for this failure, I made these two sweet little dresses (Butterick B4501 OOP) for two birthdays that are approaching. I wanted to make them wild. I own the book, Sewing Clothes Kids Love, and agree with that whole philosophy of colour mixing for kids clothes. I hope that I successfully picked fabrics that don't fully match, but look good sewn together. Maybe I'm trying to channel my inner Anna Maria Horner and see how I go with picking different colours.
Tis all for now, for more creative spaces head over to Kirsty's.....
