I had fun mooching around the charity shops today.
Excited indeed I was when I came across a ‘sewing’ section!! I am determined at some point of my sewing journey I may even learn to make an item of clothing! So when I stumbled across loads of sewing patterns, I had to buy them all!! (Slight addictive obsessive disorder)
Amongst my find also was a large amount of fabric, some Aida for my future cross stitch! (Cough cough) And some embroidery transfers.
As the title said, I’ve got all the gear, but no idea!! I need to do more making and less talking about it !
But hey…what an impressive find!
Ta-dah !! Finally after many interruptions and some long hours sewing, I have completed my pussy cats door stop. Although I have not weighted it, so I’m not sure if it will be used as a doorstop or not.
I loved seeing this project grow and it was great when I finally got around to assembling it today
The material was sourced from various places. Some I had in stock and some is recycled shirts I brought from a car boot sale. The jewels are some costume earrings I purchased in a sale. I do enjoy using reclaimed materials and turning them into something. It’s amazing how far an old shirt can go. The patterns can be quite interesting and the also come with buttons.
hope you like it ….
I am chipping away at my cat doorstop.
I have a new kitten in our house, which has slowed my progress. As you can imagine, with cute kitten eyes staring at me, I’m easily distracted.
This is my distraction 🙂
3 cats done
I just have 2 more cats to do then to assemble them and stuff them. Hopefully I will have finished by they weekend
right…I’ve been to the shops, hunted out my crochet books and wool and am going to attempt to crochet. I don’t have a master plan, I’ve looked through my books and have found some lovely stuff. I think I should start with squares. I will keep the blog updated ……
