Three weeks ago I and my fellow fabric obsessives (aka the Spoolettes), descended upon the Shibori workshop in Stanmore, Sydney for a few hours of indigo and fabric heaven.
I’m well back in the land of reality after a [insert many superlatives here] time overseas and of course my ultimate highlight being the Marimekko weekend!
Ready for the recap? Settle in as this is a long and pic heavy post!
In a break from tradition, I have been doing a little home deco sewing. Our vibrant but unadorned lounge was in urgent need of some sexy cushions. When you have some amazing fabric and a sewing machine on hand there’s no excuse not to whip up some simple cushion covers!
Seven weeks AWOL on the blog! I have missed it so but life can present you with challenges that leave only room for doing what’s necessary to make it through the day, with precious little else to spare.
A question – do you online pattern stalk like I do? I’ll happily browse in my spare time for many a happy hour examining the minutiae of patterns, read reviews and stare longingly while imagining how it would fulfill that hole in my wardrobe made up in a fabulous fabric. Well I finally roused myself from my online stupor/ procrastination, stopped stalking the lovely Salme Buttonless Shirt Dress and clicked the paypal button.
Sometimes I feel like a bit of a Google Bowerbird. I love finding and collecting together things that inspire and interest me, hence my love of Pinterest and Mural.Ly. Recently I have been hunting down tee shirt patterns and thought I would share with you all as well!
They say when you are onto a good thing…..sew another one! I was keen to sew up Wiksten #2 soon after the dress.
It’s official. I have joined the Wiksten Tank brigade! After seeing many a sewing blogger wax lyrical about this pattern, I decided that I needed one of these in my life as well.
