Sewing Dump : 1

Bad name I know!  So despite my lack of blogging action over the last 6 months or so I actually had quite a productive second half of 2012 in sewing terms.  I have just been too lazy/busy to write about it.  Over the next little while I hope to catch up and get back into the habit of blogging when things are fresh!  So to start me off I am going to do this ‘Sewing Dump’ a dump of images with brief descriptions of what I have been up to.  A couple of these projects I hope to re-blog in more detail later.  For now enjoy this dump!

{ and I apologise some of the photos are very average and taken in a hurry }

Ipad_clutch_machineandadream

Screen printed Ipad Cover/Clutch.  This one was made for my dear friend Bex however I have since gone on to make numerous more.  Hopefully in the coming weeks I will have some more available on my ETSY store. I was so happy with this project especially since this was my first one and there were no stuff ups – YAY!

Backpacks

Duffle style backpacks made for my twin nephews. These were so easy to make and turned out so cute!

Wiksten_Plus_Sleeves

Wiksten Tank Plus Sleeves – I added cap sleeves to the Original Wiksten Tank pattern – sans pocket.  I was pretty happy with the result.  See my other Wiksten tanks here

New Cushions – it was time for an update! The adorable bunny at the front is from Karen Walkers new home wares collection available exclusively at Myer. The front right and far left are Ikea fabrics and the mottled grey in the middle is made out of a recycled drop sheet. My lovely sister-in-law who claims to be very uncreative saw this crazy drop sheet made from all sorts of recycled goodies and thought I might have some inspiration to make it into something fab.  Well she was right, I love it – this is probably just one of many creations I will be making from the drop sheet .  Uncreative … Pfft anyone who sees a mundane object like this and envisions a crafting opportunity must have some creativity!  { sorry for the grainy photo – iPhone at night }

A Plethora of itsy bitys bags to place my Machine and a Dream products in. If you purchase something from my ETSY store you will be sure to have your item arrive in one of these!  Really this was just an excuse to use up all those bits of scrap fabric that are too small to be useful but too cute to throw out … turns out they are useful after all!

And so ends Sewing Dump : 1 – There will be more!
