It's Friday again, and I'm so pleased! This week has been a frustrating one, largely because some lovely person decided to break the windscreen of my car in the early hours of last Saturday morning. I was then car-less until Wednesday evening and spent entirely too much time on the phone trying to get everything sorted out.
Anyway, enough of my troubles, here are some lovely things that have taken my fancy this week.
Lovely Liberty print Tana Lawn. The Spring 2014 collection takes inspiration from different areas of the Regent Street store, and this print - called Alexandra - is based on the jewellery room.
I think this would look perfect made up into this little top:
This is Teach Me Fashion's (no, I hadn't heard of them either!) Two Tone Singlet pattern. You can get the pattern free by registering on their website. I came across a version of this made by Sew Unravelled, and think I'll probably attempt it myself when the weather gets a bit warmer.
I somehow (not quite sure how it happened!) bought an overlocker (or serger to many people) this week, so I'm sure this series of blog posts by Make It Handmade will come in very handy. She even uses exactly the same serger as I bought, which makes it even handier.
A pretty wrist pin cushion, this is by Heather Bailey, using her Spring Violets free pattern. I desperately need one of these, and I've actually got some of the bits cut out for one. I'm going to make a larger one as well (I hope!).
And finally a little bit of fun. I saw this and - as a confirmed tea addict - thought it was spot on!
In fact, I'm off to make myself a cup of tea right now.
Have a lovely weekend. I'll be back next week with some actual proper sewing to show you.
