Hello poor neglected blog. Its been a long time since I shared my creating with you. Life kinda got in the way a little bit. But, now its school holidays and I have found some time and inspiration to make something. Hooray!
I while ago I let you know about my sewing machine fear and the online sewing course by the The Haby Goddess I was going to do. Well, I had a few problems with my very old sewing machine which took a while to be fixed which means I have only just finished the course. I am now so much more knowledgeable about my machine and what I can do with it. While I still struggle with some tricky things, I am not scared to have a go now.
I’ve long been an admirer of Amy Butler - both her fabric designs and her wonderful patterns. This week I decided was the right time for me to finally have a go at one of her patterns. I borrowed the fabulous In Stitches book from my local library and decided on the square pot holder.
And here it is. While I am totally aware this aint perfect, I am pretty impressed with myself. Considering I have never done patchwork, quilted or even made and attached bias binding before today. Some of the corners are even properly mitred LOL. A lot more practice needed I know, but I am happy I had the confidence to have a go. Might even make some for xmas pressies I think.
Not bad for a first real go at sewing something tricky I think.
Have you stretched your skills lately? Tell me about it
