I am going to learn to sew clothes if it kills me so I’ve treated myself to a bit of a sewing pattern haul to give me the final push! An offer popped into my inbox a couple of weeks ago from Jaycotts.co.uk for 50% off their Simplicity patterns so you know I couldn’t pass it up! Does anyone else get sucked into the ‘Free Delivery’ trap? I write it in quotations because this kind of ‘free’ only applies when you spend over a certain amount… I’m a sucker for a ‘deal…’
Anyway, I may have bought 1 or 2 or 8 patterns. I need help.
So now I really have no excuse not to take the plunge! I’m setting myself a challenge and making at least one item from each pattern and I actually started off slowly last week by making a car organiser! This one to be precise.
It’ pretty tricky and I’ve somehow managed to bend the needle in my sewing machine. When i can figure out how to replace it I’ll hopefully manage to finish the bugger quickly! It’s not pretty, but it’s a start 🙂
I would just like to address the elephant in the room right now. Yes, I did buy a pattern dedicated to Disney Princess dresses. I am a princess. I apologise to no one.
I also purchased another sewing-related item which may maybe a bit presumptuous….
Yep, I bought a dress form. I’m spending no more money on dressmaking paraphernalia until I actually make a dress! You heard it here first.
On a completely unrelated note I’m off to a wedding today (oh the wonders of scheduled posting.) If you feel so inclined then I would urge you to congratulate Sam the beautiful bride over on her blog Create.Dream.Love
