|Books! Books! Books!|
Blimey! I've got A LOT of books. Trouble is I LOVE books!
So after lots of rummaging around I've collected together all (I think) the books and magazines I currently have that are related to sewing/making in some way.
I have 16 books and a pile of mags dating back to 2009....So I think I have plenty to get me started.
|Magazines and patterns|
I've also found the old patterns I'd bought a while back just because I loved them. I have no idea if I need to convert the sizing of old patterns?
Am particularly fond of the 'Onesie' outfit pattern I discovered. I did have the 'brief' thought of making an adult sized version as it would be 'snuggly' but noticed that as the zip is on the back - once you're in it. That's it. You can't get out!!
And also realised that as my knitting skills have a little to be desired it would properly take me
many years and copious balls of wool to make it! So that idea has been scrapped!
I also have a little dream.....
To go to the amazing Burgh Island off the coast of Devon, wearing the clothes I've made and in particular, a 1930s inspired evening gown....
It is crazily expensive though.....well, a girl can dream! ;-)
ooh and to go with my handmade gown - some handmade shoes! That would be lovely! ;-)
