So, here we are at the end of November. Blimey, that month went quickly! Still no house, but plenty of crafts going on.
first thing I made this month was, unfortunately, the only thing that
involved the sewing machine. It was, in fact, the easiest and speediest sewing I have ever done.
It has inspired me to sew more, although this month has been spent
planning, rather than sewing anything.
My first make
was an eye pillow that I made for my friend's birthday present, as part
of a relaxation theme. The tutorial I used was from here, and I used some of my fat quarters for the fabric.
These things are really difficult to capture in photos, but I tried. Front view:
closed up the remaining side on the outside once the pillow was filled
(the rest were my usual french seams). Not the neatest thing in the
world, but it holds up.
side view, showing both fabrics. The pillow is filled with dry rice and
some lavender from my garden (also dried). It smells amazing. :D
So my next make is going to look huge in comparison! :)
was all about the big event: my brother's graduation. I was wearing my
purple dress, and I wanted to make something to go with it. I had these
shamballa beads from the local bead stall, and my aim was to make some
jewellery that would help them to stand out.
And now for something much more eccentric. The event I have been looking forward to since August: Steampunks in Space!!
I really wanted to push myself with this, and I tried to make as much as possible.
Now, Steampunks in Space was a 'no
photography' event, meaning that you could take pictures of your friends
and family, but not strangers. Of course, I went on my own. So when I
found a mirror in one of the gravity and mass exhibits, I attempted a
picture so you can see my armour.
mostly centered around Christmas, of course, but if I make things I will
endeavour to upload them towards the end of the month, hopefully
followed by a rough plan for 2016.
