Look what came in the post…

…from France yesterday. It’s the Robe Reglisse dress pattern from Deer And Doe. I’ve never used one of their patterns before but the design is similar to a lot of the dresses I wear so if it works out it’ll get a lot of use. It’s been quite a while since I’ve sewn anything. Like [...]

Knit All the Things…ish

Remember Jabba?   Here he is installed on Eric’s sofa. He takes most of it up! I had all of these grand plans for the Christmas break. I was going to knit all the things and read and watch all the things, too. Of course the reality is that I was only able to knit, [...]

How I squished Jabba the Hutt under my sewing machine…

…and he only clogged the feed dogs once! If you own Bonnie Burton’s “Star Wars Craft Book” then you’ll be familiar with the Jabba the Hutt Body Pillow. A few months ago I showed the book to my boyfriend and he loved the Jabba pattern so I said I’d make it for him for Christmas. [...]

Eleven Years Ago Today…

I blogged for the very first time. It’s still rather strange to think of old Space Craft is. Scifiville is even older, I bought the domain back in June 2000.   So I’ve made some new aquistions   I picked this up in my local Aldi for about £2.50 I think.   It contains this [...]

How much sewing could you do in 30 minutes?

The first post of 2013 and I’m looking ahead to taking part in Cake Pattern’s Tiramisu 30 Minutes Sewalong. It starts tomorrow     I seem to start a lot of dress patterns and then become busy or distracted by something else but the sewalong is perfect as setting aside thirty minutes a day for [...]

New Blog – Lucky Cats

I went to a craft supplies fair on Saturday with my friends Karen and Hannah. Sadly there were no stalls selling yarn but plenty were selling beads and I found a couple with fabric. The red is what feels like a poly cotton mix. It was £3 a meter and I picked up 3m for [...]

Making Monday – Earrings and The Spice Boys

The weather has been far too hot for much making but I’ve made some progress on my Lotus Tunic dress   That’s the front view and it looks a bit strange because I’ve had to fold the middle panel a little to take the picture.  I still have to cut, sew and attach the lining. Then [...]

Making Monday – Acquisitions

My Lotus tunic is still in progress. The darts are done and the zip is in so that’s the back of the tunic finished. I intended to sew the front during the Olympics Closing Ceremony but found myself watching rather than sewing. I did join one of the side fronts but I don’t think I’ve sewn the [...]

Making Monday – Lotus Tunic

I finally got around to cutting out my fabric for the Amy Butler lotus tunic on Saturday night. I’d meant to do it earlier in the day but I decided that my craft room needed a little reorganising. Ok, it was partly procrastination but it was necessary. I also wanted to be able to watch [...]

Challenges

Yes, I know I’m posting on a day that isn’t Monday! I’ve realised that I seem to work better when I challenge myself. In my day job I have deadlines all the time but after last year’s Nanowrimo I realised that challenges and deadlines work well in my crafty life too. Back in February on [...]
