I'm so happy to have time to myself, I've vowed to make this Summer very productive and crafty :)
I started by fixing my clothes 2 shirts and a dress.
My favourite shirt from Algonquins got wrecked at The Wombats 2011, someone stuck gum on my sleeve :( and I couldn't get it out.
The stain looks like ovaries...
I'm not a fan of sleeveless tops, so I tried to cover it up.
I succeeded! the patch is made out of cotton, I forgot how to sew with jersey and over stretched some parts, but they aren't very noticeable.
excuse my bad excema and muscly arms
I'm really happy with the result. I think I might try making more patches, and I really need to practice machine embroidery. The other fixes were just sewing up holes and rips :p
Batman pencil case
I'm trying to shrink my fabric pile, it's currently going very slowing. I made a Batman Pencil Case for Charlotte. She loves Batman? (I'm pretty sure it's love) Just a little thanks for her being patient with me when teaching me how to swim ^_^
Lining and detailing
I had to hand sew the zip, OMG my hand sewing is atrocious, I need to practice that too...
I'm currently knitting a jumper, I never finished my teacher's jumper :(
However I'm allergic to the wool for this jumper, so I had to use something else.
one night's work
I 'm not sure if I like the colour effect, and I really wanted a see through jumper as slutty as that sounds lol.
I found some sheer fabrics, which I can't wait to play with aswell ^_^
What do you do with broken clothes?
I normally reuse the zips, buttons and then use the rest as scarps and remake it or fix it, I hate throwing clothes and material away. Maybe I'm just cheap XD
