    This is so good. I’m really impressed, I can only knit scarves! I have been wanting to try to knit a jumper but have been put off but seeing this has inspired me!

    elbie84 commented on the project Friday Night Dress

    I love this. It is so cute. And I know what you mean with shops full of 80s wear. Yes, i do find the oversized tops etc comfortable to wear on occasion but i do not want an entire retro wardrobe! T…

    Dealing with prints is my next challenge and task to conquer! The man in the fabric shop tried to convince me with “the pattern doesn’t always have to match up” to which i replied "yes it does!. I …

    I found this dress a bit challenging, and seeing how many others have done it made me wonder if it was just me! I can’t tell you how many times I had to unpick certain bits. After trying the comple…

    elbie84 commented on the technique Velveteen Rosettes for Holidays

    I think this is lovely and very individual (in the good way not as in “individual”). I love the way that you rescued an ordinary red dress and made it into something different by just adding to it….

    Dscn1542_listing

    This was my first attempt and I did find it a little bit tricky. I messed up the dimensions a bit so the flap isn’t the same width as the bag but it is messy and not perfect just like me so I love …

    I would love to say i made my jumper but unfortunately i didn’t. However, the design has inspired me to make something similar. Its a bit unusual!

    Thanks guys! The people at work didn’t believe i’d made it myself which i guess is a good sign! Definately a good style of dress to go for on a first attempt. Did find sewing on the facing for the …

    Due to lacking funds, I decided to make this for my friends birthday present. Basically, very simple but very warm! I know strictly not sewn, but knitted (using 10mm needles)

    I used a bought pattern from New Look (can be…
