Firstly i would just like to say a big thankyou to all of you that blogged on my last post. Iam really quiet surprised how understanding all of you are. As one blogger said they use their blog to talk about all the happy stuff in their lives so in some way you forget about all your troubles you might have in the normal life. Likewise i suppose i keep my blog in the same way, but then i realised that you know we all have problems no matter how big or small and we shouldnt be ashamed or feel like that shouldnt be able to speak about them. Hence why the other blog is being set up.

Anyway the last few days has been alot better, today me and Bear made some delicous chocolate brownies, which i  must say wont last very long.

A couple of days ago i also managed to pick up some fabric, and before you all get excited its not as nice as some of you have  but i still think prehaps i got a bargain lots and lots of fabric and i have only spent a fiver. Only thing is, is that i dont know what to make with it any ideas please.

i know this one looks like a suit fabric..

the bottom colour is a karki

the the top one here is like a burgundany or deep wine..

i have got some white fabric too..

but im new to sewing, i only got my sewing machine at xmas

so im a total novice, so where do i start???
some of the fabric i seem to have meters of  and they seem to all come from fabric shops in London.
Any way that is it for now , so i will see what suggestions you all come up with.


  1. awwww how exciting ;-)) When you look at the fabrics what do you see? thats where i start. I can see a few skirts which is not as hard as you think if you pick a basic pattern, and also cushion covers they are so simple to make. Cut 2 pieces of squares the same size, pin them inside out and sew 3 edges. Then fold over slightly the 4th to make a neat edge then instead of a putting in a zip, just sew press studs in. Have fun, can't wait to see what you make ;-)) Dee xx

  2. Glad you're feeling a bit better, brownies have a habit of cheering me up. I'm afraid sewing isn't my forte so I don't have any suggestions, but blogs are great places to look for inspiration.

  3. Wow, now thats quite a bit of fabric. I like the first one, the one you called a 'suit fabric' this would be lovely for cushions with some applique on the front xx

  4. Cannot believe you only paid five pounds for all that fabric, I want to know where you shop lol, have fun making xx

  5. The brownies look yummy! Well done for finding all that fabric for a fiver, a great find! I can see skirts or cushions too. Or what about cube storage containers or maybe a laptop cover/bag? :) x
