Usually i create patterns out myself, it's rather nice to have a lovely book like Weekend Sewing to go to when i am crafting for personal gifting, not to sell. (i sell only my own designs)
Look familiar? I posted about my fledgling adventures in hand needlework awhile back. Here. These are the latest tunic tops. One of the pieces i experimented with ended up on a tunic. Browns this time, to balance out the last lot's blast of vintage colour.
Late one night, in desperate need of crafting, i made this. Just like my Nana had. Denim, linen and wool with a organic cotton drawstring from an old pair of Jed's trousers. A needlecase. No more rummaging in an old tobacco tin for needles!
Speaking of crafting, i just heard about Crafternoon Tea. A groovy new monthly craft market by all accounts. I intend to make it to the next one. Perhaps even peddle my wares?!
