Thanks for dropping by… and welcome to my creative space. The place where I can share my love for sewing (and creating in general) with you!
I started this blog the end of 2014 when I realized there were so many people that wanted to know more about my creations. So here I hope to share the patterns I use, where I find material bargains and how to make simple adjustments to your clothes – if there is anything else I can help you will please send me an email!
I love the creative process of making things. Many-a-time, 6 hours have passed and I have forgotten to eat because I’m in flow… Otherwise known as my happy place. I’ve always loved sewing (thanks to my mumsy’s positive influence) but I’ve only recently come back to it in a big way, and have realised how much I LOVE it!
But it’s not just about sewing and creativity for me. I’m also inspired by the beautiful thinking in these books about the way we live and consume our way through our planet’s limited resources. I feel that thoughtless buying and consuming can grow a sense of emptiness inside… so I decided to try something different:
Across this little blog, I hope to share how easy re-fashioning, revamping and upcycling preloved clothes (and other stuff!) through easy to follow guides and photos. Follow me on my mission to avoid the shops, I aim to sew all my outer wear in 2015.
So… keep an eye out. You never know what inspiration you’ll find here – or kerbside among the leaves – to revive, revamp, recycle, repurpose and recreate!
I hope you enjoy…
