I took a pot of tester paint and a pinboard I found in a charity shop for 30p and by combining the two ended up with this bright green pinboard. Perfect for my craft room.
This is my fifth Mortmain dress, I love sewing and wearing them so much I can’t stop! This time I have made a gathered skirt. I am very happy with it.
The fabric is cream with lots of tiny cars in bright colours. To make the dress more interesting I used bright orange bias binding round the neck and armholes.
Last week I bought myself some fabric and a pattern from Berylune. I used my long Bank Holiday weekend to make a dress. The pattern is The Mortmain from Gather. I really like the feel of the pattern envelope and all the illustrations. I found the instructions easy to follow and enjoyed making this dress, I have even cut out the next one already!
I love the shape of the dress and look forward to trying it with an exposed zip. I wasn’t able to get the right zip in time to sew it this weekend so just used a normal one.
I love the Cloud 9 fabric and took more care than I usually do cutting it out as I wanted the scissors running up and down on the skirt and bodice, but across on the waistband. I am really pleased with how this worked.
I am very pleased with my shopping from Berylune today. Enough Cloud 9 fabric to make two dresses and The Mortmain dress pattern from Gather!
My sewing machine is all ready for me to get sewing over the Bank Holiday weekend.
I have been playing with my new colours of Motex Tape to label the boxes in my craft room. You can buy the tape (and the label writers if you dont still have an old Dymo one!) from Berylune.
I really like this small bit of colour on my plain white boxes. Only another 30 or so boxes to label!
