So without further ado, here's what I've been up to this week.
I've been taking part in Rachel at House of Pinheiro's Sew Photo Hop on Instagram. It's been a lot of fun so far, I've found lots of new and interesting people to follow there. There is a different theme every day, here's my first 7 days:
|Top row: Day 1 - Hello; Day 2 - Can't live without; Day 3 - Colourful|
Bottom row: Day 4 - Work/play; Day 5 Silhouette; Day 6 - Pattern that changed my life; Day 7 - Sew up close
I made another Sewaholic Gabriola skirt, this time in some gorgeous olive/khaki and black leopard print rayon voile. There's not much else to say about this than I said in the post about the first one I made, I love it so much.
I went to Ikea for a picture frame and came home with a sewing kit (as well as a picture frame). I didn't need it, but it was only £10, I couldn't not buy it.
The Ikea picture frame was for this, a free motion embroidered beach hut for my sisters wedding anniversary gift. They have a holiday home on the coast in Norfolk, so I hope they like this.
Finally I've been lusting after this jacket/top from Chanel and desperately trying to work out if I can hack an existing pattern into a coat with a similar neckline and front.
What have you been up to this week?
