Yesterday in My Creative Space (I'm not going to be home today, so I thought ahead).
Work in progress on the Mookah Challenge. I've had a slight setback already.
My original plan was to make a laptop bag, but the felted jumper was far too thick to go through the sewing machine. The next plan was to make a softie with the felted jumper as one layer, and fabric as the other layer. I managed to sew the two layers together on the machine..... and tried to turn it out for well over an hour (and using various blunt and sharp instruments and many expletives in the process) - until I packed it in and gave up!
So then I spent about another hour unpicking all of my mess.
Never fear, I have another idea! All is not lost just yet. Luckily I still have at least another week left until the end of Blogtoberfest.
My nephew Mr X has been staying with me this week, so while he was playing games on the computer lastnight, I did a bit of clothes alteration. This gorgeous So! Indesign skirt was given to me by a friend who bought it for herself, but never wore it.
It was a bit large, so I removed some of the inner fabric panel, added some more velcro (I couldn't be bothered unpicking the existing velcro), and I used the fabric offcut to add a handy dandy side pocket. I think I might wear it to the Quilt Hanging Friday night.
Don't forget to visit Kirsty to play along and check out everyone elses lovely creative spaces...
