So I took some curtain material and transformed it a la Sound of Music into a cute little designer-inspired number.

Loads of pictures and a tutorial can be found here:  Grin

Ooh this is absolutely gorgeous... I've been after a cape for aaaages!

What level do you reckon you need to be sewing-wise to have a go at this?

4  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Craftivist Collective #Lovefashionhatesweatshops on: September 10, 2013 02:50:43 PM
I've been involved with a group called Craftivist Collective - who campaign using crafts.

Their latest initiative is with War on Want's 'Love Fashion Hate Sweatshops' campaign.

I made my own banner (first time stitching lettering!) which you can see here...

Let me know what you think!

I'm still very much a newbie when it comes to using my sewing machine and following patterns, but what I lack in skill I make up with enthusiasm.  Grin

One of my favourite projects so far has been turning this...



... into this!

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Vintage knitted collar on: September 27, 2012 08:13:07 AM
A little while back I made a detachable lacy collar from Claire Montgomeries Knitting Vintage.

It was a really straightforward pattern, and is perfect for using up the last half ball of wool.

My original images are on my old laptop... but I did manage to put them up on my blog before they disappeared.



Full pics are here:

Has anyone else made this/other detatchable collars?

Aw thanks. I would have got a picture of him in it but he kept running around with it on and wouldn't sit still long enough for a snap. If there are any updated pics I'll add them.

As part of my Christmas knitting I decided to knit my two and a half year-old nephew a jacket to keep him snuggly warm, but which also looked nice.

A month earlier I'd spotted the FOs hung-up at the stall where the pattern books were being sold and I fell in love there and then. I knew I had to make it.

Sorry about the rubbish quality of pic, but here it is:




For the record he loved it Grin
