The funny thing is, I hesitated when deciding to make this pincushion. And its one of the best things I have ever sewn. It even came out a little wonky but it doesn't matter. It is attached to my wrist most of the time. I just have to remember to take it off when putting my daughter to bed as it holds great fascination for her.
this is the photo my son took of it sitting on our kitchen bench
I made the kids some Jarmies. I only had a little of each fabric so i made a simple pant and just cut an applique of the same fabric and sewed them onto some cheap long sleeve tops.
I used this awesome product called Craft Smart Applique and Embroidery Positioning spray. I bought it from Spotlight in Henderson, Auckland. It keeps the applique in place while sewing it on then washes off in the first wash. I bought it for little singlets i sewed doilies onto and am surprised how many times Ive used it since.
I found this adorable little top on Ravelry. This was my first knit using circular needles and I LOVED IT! It is so much fun. I especially loved the fact that there is hardly any purling. Not my favourite thing to do.
Well, Im not entirely sure why I even have a blog. It just seemed like a good idea at the time. It has grown from the fact that I want to post photos of some of the great projects I have made using other peoples free patterns and tutorials. I thought it was about time to give credit!
So basicly thats what I indend to do with this blog.
That and post photos of my own projects. Even if it just inspires other just a little bit.
