    ive actually been unselfish lately lol & my sewing skills (which have improved to a sufficient level, so as not to make a hash of anyones garments, i’d like to think so anyway lol!) came in useful for mending some of my auntie’s clothes (most of them are made of stretch knit jersey) as she is undergoing cancer treatment. my auntie has always loved fashion! =D

    Morning from a cold ireland!! I saw your status about binding. Bought a bias binder maker from eBay really cheap. It was about five pounds. They had three sizes and I got the largest.It really is so easy to use and produces great bias binding. I went mad when i first bought it and everything had bias binding on it lol. II copied one of my daughters dresses for her and all the strap detail is bias binding.I was so pleased with myself lol. I wish knew how to link a past project to show you but it’s in my studio and is a red animal print dress. Enjoy your day xx

      Thanks so much Mary; sounds crisp! Thanks for reminding me about those bias making gadgets, i totally had forgotten about using one. I went and retrieved my metal one at the bottom of my tools and notions box.. a non mechanical basic medium sized one, and it did a quick job of it, really did make the job easier. So that saved lots of binding frustration lol. Xxxx
