    em7481 commented on the project Top Dots

    Yeah, it was pretty simple. I am quite new to sewing but this was definately one of the easiest things I have made. I actually drew round another top (which wasn’t gathered under the bust) to get a…

    Sewing_024_listing

    Sewing_040_listing

    This was another project from my Cath Kidson ‘Sew’ book – they are supposed to be Ipod cases but I think could also make good sunglasses cases. I made these for my two work friends, Rose and Louise…

    I made this bag for my mum for Mother’s Day. The lining doesn’t really match the outer but I quite like it that way and she liked it which was the main thing :)
