Morning my lovelies! well, there was I with my plans of kicking up a storm on the sewing machine this week…Monday found me back in the Drs as I couldn’t catch my breath, turns out my chest infection had triggered severe asthma and I left with a course of steroids and a stern warning that if i got any worse I was to go to the hospital! I couldn’t face another week of not trying out my new sewing machine so I settled on this small but delightful project….
It is no secret how much I love a Mollie Makes project and now they have projects that you can sell! I chose some fun fabrics that cheered me up and off we went! I cut out….
I used this amazing spray tack that stops you having to sew tacking…
I zipped it together on the machine and finished off with a pompom….
I then popped it onto what is rapidly becoming my Mollie Makes tree! The shape of this cone that is designed to be filled with treats, reminds me of the German tradition of the Schultute. This decorated cone is given to children the day before they start school for the first time , filled to the brim with sweets, toys and school supplies it is designed to make that first day at school a little easier. I have it in mind that some larger cones could be themed to all sorts of celebrations- new baby, hen night, starting college, christmas etc. watch this space!
I have to say Ive really enjoyed sewing this week, and it started me looking at patterns, pop over to http://www.sewbox.co.uk they have so much to look at! this is my current favourite……
These patterns are available in a wide range of sizes and are definitely trend aware.
I’ve also been doing a bunch of up cycling as I have decided that if I can’t find exactly what I want, I will not make do any more and will adapt, change or make from scratch, I will share some of these projects next week.
Have a super week and I will do my best to be fighting fit, fingers crossed!
