Happy New Year to you, wishing you a prosperous and healthy 2020.
During the Christmas period I have enjoyed making some more newborn baby beanie hats for the local hospital.
In addition, I have set myself the goal for 2020 to sew a variety of clothing for me to wear. This has been inspired by several people I follow on Instagram (Tilly and the Buttons and Leah Nicholls (sewsewleah)). I have started with the Tilly and the Buttons Ness skirt, short version in turquoise baby cord.
There were some technical issues, I had used all my interfacing on the makeup bag gift sets, so had to patch enough to cover the fabric required. Also, my Brother sewing machine decided to through a wobble and the thread from the bobbin kept jamming. All resolved now, phew.
Having completed my first item of clothing on the first day of the new month, year and decade, I shall begin as I mean to go on.
Altering patterns and getting a good fit is still an area that I need to improve on, the more I make the better (fingers crossed) this will be. I am determined to learn from everything I make.
So along with the tote bags, makeup bag gift sets and new items I will be selling, there will be more updates on the Me Made Wardrobe.
Thank you for your support. Clare x
