Swell experiments

Hello my dear friends,

How are you? Did you have a pleasant weekend? It feels like years ago now, doesn't it?

Mine was good thanks, although busy - very unlike me. But the good news is I did manage to squeeze in some time with the sewing machine. Much like with my jewellery, I am teaching myself, so every day brings a new challenge/disaster. I finally took the plunge and had a first go at making the pouches I discussed in my last post. Here is my "prototype":




Vintage fabric from MsLegacySews
Labels made by MommieMadeIt
Jewellery by me!

So what do you think? Considering this is my first ever attempt and that I've only been sewing for about 2 weeks, I think it could have been a lot worse! Any feedback, suggestions or tips you might have would be GREATLY appreciated, please. I need all the help I can get! On a plus side, I love this print and I couldn't be happier with the labels. Once I get my stitching sorted, these pouches might end up looking ok!

In other news, I will be moving to East London on 5th June! While this is very exciting, it also means that I need to get my life (and stuff) sorted, so it's going to get busier in the coming weeks. Needless to say, I'm going to get very behind with my blog reader!

Thank you for taking the time to read this and for (hopefully) not vomiting at the sight of my appalling stitch work. Until next time!

Much love,

Frankie

Jewellery by me!

So what do you think? Considering this is my first ever attempt and that I've only been sewing for about 2 weeks, I think it could have been a lot worse! Any feedback, suggestions or tips you might have would be GREATLY appreciated, please. I need all the help I can get! On a plus side, I love this print and I couldn't be happier with the labels. Once I get my stitching sorted, these pouches might end up looking ok!

In other news, I will be moving to East London on 5th June! While this is very exciting, it also means that I need to get my life (and stuff) sorted, so it's going to get busier in the coming weeks. Needless to say, I'm going to get very behind with my blog reader!

Thank you for taking the time to read this and for (hopefully) not vomiting at the sight of my appalling stitch work. Until next time!

Much love,

Hello my dear friends,

How are you? Did you have a pleasant weekend? It feels like years ago now, doesn't it?

Mine was good thanks, although busy - very unlike me. But the good news is I did manage to squeeze in some time with the sewing machine. Much like with my jewellery, I am teaching myself, so every day brings a new challenge/disaster. I finally took the plunge and had a first go at making the pouches I discussed in my last post. Here is my "prototype":
