Stash Buster!

Posted February 28th, 2010 by candi

As I alluded in my previous post, much of my fabric stash is from my mum. A lot of it is on the daggy 80s spectrum, but there are quite a few nice fabrics in there too. With Willow’s help (for about 3 minutes until she got bored) I filled up a green shopping bag [...]

I am always nervous about giving something I’ve made as a gift. In the past they haven’t been appreciated, but I’ve made 3 sets of bags and aprons for Willow’s recent birthday parties.

Willow’s birthday cake A scarf I’m working on. I know it looks strange, but I’ll post the photos when I’ve finished! It is a melange of fabric and ribbons sewn to some water soluble stabiliser. The idea is to sew back and forth, up and down, then put the scarf in water and the backing [...]
