Definitely the sense of community and also seeing what everyone else has created. It’s made me try things I’d never have otherwise tried!

What a fantastic prize! Oh the things I could sew!
This year I’ve spent about $150 on fabric. But I’ve put myself on a fabric ban until I sew up my current stash. Ambitious, yes!

Hi Taffeta, thanks for the comment on my dress. I used Rigilene boning. That’s just the plastic/nylon one and apparently the cheapest. But also the only one available here in the backwaters of Sout…

Hi All, and thanks for the lovely comments. The boning I used was Rigilene boning. That’s just the polyester one and apparently the cheapest. But also the only one available here in the backwa…

skaapie added the project Red Recycled Surf Hoodie
I made the original hoodie about 10 years ago! As one of the first things I ever made, I was quite proud of it, but it was huge and rather dated.
So I chopped it up and with the help of the Idit…

skaapie added the project Slinky Red Minna
This is a great little party dress! But beware of charmeuse, it is definitely not a fabric for a beginner what with it slipping all over the place. (Much patience and basting required!)
skaapie added the project A Green Ellen
