I'm back!

Yes really I am, and I promise to post more often in 2010!

Apart from swearing that I would post more often to my blog, I also promised myself that I would sew more often in 2010. I love sewing, I find it really therapeutic, but I spent so much time last year building my business http://www.notoriouskitsch.co.uk/ that I neglected myself and doing things just for enjoyment.

I've spent the last couple of weeks sorting through my fabric and patterns, yes it's taken me that long.

Today I sorted my fabric and rediscovered some fantastic prints that I have which I really must get around to doing something with, I'll let you know as I get round to it.

I didn't have a whole heap of time once I had done that, but I found a scrap of fabric my husband loves, he's got a laptop bag in it, and I thought, hello, there looks like there is enough here to make him a wallet. I made it, it's a bit rough, and the next one I try will definately be more refined, contain more credit card pockets and be finished off better but he's really happy!

So here it is my first attempt!

That is very ingenious!

I recently bought a miniature sewing machine from Urban Outfitters of all places - I have some awesome 50s fabric, but I can't bear to cut it up. It'll be a fab curtain once I've done it, but... poor fabric! No... I must be brave. I must think of the curtain, and the portiere curtain rail. And the bloody draft that comes in round my front door....
