This morning was dedicated to cooking a roast beef and Yorkshire pudding for Lauren's birthday lunch, so it was difficult for me to start any sewing.
I wanted to make birthday cards (another hobby of mine) for both her and my twin sister for next week so I decided to dig out my card making equipment and sit at the kitchen table and make some cards. For these particular cards I used decoupage kits, which is somewhat quicker than cutting out all of the layers with a very sharp knife, so they were just an assembly job. I want to clear some of the space in the cabinet where these are stored so decided to make up two whole kits, resulting in about 20+ cards that are ready to go as and when I need them.
Here is a snapshot of some of the cards I made, sadly you can't see the 3D effect, but these should keep me stocked up for the ladies who need cards for a little while.
As mentioned yesterday I wanted to complete an outfit to wear for my birthday next weekend so I have cut out some grey fabric to make a pair of trousers/pants. This fabric (probably purchased in Walthamstow) has a sort of knit texture to it and I thought it would also lend itself well to the Kwik Sew 2948 cardigan, in one of its longer versions to create a softer looking suit that I could wear for work.
So its cut out, and I just need to thread my sewing machine and serger with grey thread.
Catch you later....................
