I feel it’s been ages since I’ve done a proper sewing round up of kit and general projects, so in the lull between event and event write up I would like to share with you an overview of recent projects. I hope you enjoy, but be warned it’s a bit of a long post …
So picture the scene – you’re at an event and you go to sit down and you hear the terrible sound of fabric ripping itself apart; or as you buckle yourself into your kit you feel the strap in your hand pull away; or you roll over in the morning to find a pool of water in your tent from a hole that’s letting in the rain.
Such things can be an annoyance or total disaster when you’re out in a field for several days at a time, and can seriously impact your game or health if left as they are. And so I include below thoughts on ways to prevent a major kit disaster, or even minor discomforts, when you should turn to your trusty emergency repair kit.
But what should that kit include? Find out below …
In January I began a project with the intention of making for myself an evening gown for an event at the end of the month. I would like to share this project with you – my first piece of proper fashion sewing!
There’s a little voice that speaks to all sewists sometimes. It’s the voice of doubts – full of questions and comments and general nastiness. It talks us down, and makes us doubt and avoid working on projects, telling us we’re not skilled enough, that things are too hard, that we’re going to ruin the beautiful things we’re working on.
But that voice is a liar.
And here’s a hope at putting it in its place and back in its box.
