I bought nearly the whole shop!!... and I'm dying to go to the Darling Harbour Quilt show because she will be there again... to grab more supplies! Since my hubby had bought me a beautiful laptop for Christmas... I have been dying to make a pretty girly case... And so these bits and pieces were perfect!Tutorial over at Crap Ive Made, and have come to the conclusion that i WAY prefer making Quilts!! Although this tutorial was pretty straight forward...I made a few stupid mistakes! The Tutorial calls for fusible batting and as I ironed it onto the under side of the top piece, I burnt a HUGE hole through the lace and velvet ribbon. So a TIP from me.... NEVER IRON LACE! I wont be making THAT mistake twice! The rounded zipper and lining gave me a bit of grief....
But after unpicking the whole front and starting again.. i was sure to take extra care.
I lined my sleeve in my Chasing Cottons fabric that i made HERE..and the Musky Pink Linen I bought from HERE.
I'm really happy with how it turned out!!
Miss Rose Sister Violet have a blog they started HERE and they will be starting an online shop at the end of the year.. but you can still purchase bits and pieces if you contact them. I'm working with her to try and source some of these products for you... to make it easier for you to get some... Email me if your after anything in particular...
My Sewing Room is turning a little Vintage Glam... So I've decided to add a few other pieces i bought... to make a Sewing Machine cover, that will look a little like this..
and I will show you the rest of the bits i bought from the show...soon xx
