So, what have I actually been up to sewing wise? Well, on Tuesday night I did indeed make something for myself to help with the mojo, and it worked, as I was up until half 1 (Wednesday morning) finishing it off, ouch! And that was a crochet roll for my hooks, with space for scissors and any other little bits I need to take with me. Now don't expect professional photos from my efforts, but I have to say, they're lots better than they were, with the help of a reflector (a foil covered smaller cutting board, all very improv), as well as the board. So here goes, *drumroll*
|Inside of my new Crochet Roll|
|My cute new Crochet Roll, all tied up!|
I decided to go all improv for the inside, and as I love polka dots and spotty fabric, I decided to raid my scraps drawers and pull out all of my dotty ones. I then just randomly started sewing them together, then cutting them at odd angles, and then re-sewing them until I got this mix, and I rather like it. The pocket is made from a Hot Pink Essex Linen (it has matching white stilettos too ; ), OK, rubbish joke I know) and the outside is a Grey Essex Linen, both purchased from Emma's Fabric Studio a couple of months ago, along with one of her terrific scraps packs (see the white fabric with different colour dots, on the inside of the crochet roll) and a couple of other fabrics. She has a lovely range of fabrics, well worth a look, and the service is fantastic- and no I don't get paid to say that, its an independent opinion! : ).
I have also been chopping up some fabric to make these

I have also been fussing around with the pockets for my advent calendar, but as with all of these things, I tend to take ages to get something I'm happy with the first time,which means it's a long, drawn out process, and so far, this is all I have to show for it!
Back to it.
