Welcome to my world, sometimes a little hectic but a fab place to be!

Did a bit of sewing today…

Have you ever bought something and thought ‘i need somewhere to keep that safe, if only it came with a pouch/cover’? 

A couple of weeks ago I treated myself to a pair of Bluetooth headphones for when I’m running. As I’ll be putting them in my kit bag and taking them when we go away on holiday etc I wanted to keep them both safe and clean so I got thinking.

I went into my craft room and sat in the purple chair to draft a design, once I’d worked out my measurements and knew what i wanted it read time to get sewing. I’d already picked out the fabric, the denim was an off cut that was just two inches longer than I needed (phew!!). The lining is a gorgeous quilting cotton that I picked up on the USA last year. 

I really enjoyed making this and now know how to make a button hole to fit my button perfectly!!!

Hope you like, ttfn xx

Happy days in Doncaster

Well that’s another Doncaster show over, I hope you enjoyed it if you visited. 

It was great to see so many familiar faces and so many new ones too-and all smiling which is great! 

It’s hard to say what my favourite part of the show is, meeting everyone, seeing people try something new on a make and take, looking at all the beautiful goodies in the stands, meeting up with fellow exhibitors…. They’re all special for their own reasons. 

Here are a few pictures from my day, please share yours🙂

What was your favourite part?
