New Blog

I have recently decided to open a new blog especially for sewing. To view please visit: Sewing One Stitch at a Time.


EDIT: After reading Lindsay's comment I remembered I had forgotten to change the permissions on Sewing One Stitch at a time! Oops. You should be able to access it now.

A Lesson Learned... I hope.

I like pens.

Who wouldn't!? They're very handy. Just never wash them. Then don't turn out to great.

Seriously, I've witnessed it!

 I desinged a new purse a few weeks ago.
 I drew a flower on the front pocket to sew over, and later washed it.

But when I washed it... it turned... SPOTTED! You can imagine my horror as my dad showed me not one but two pens I had placed in the bag earlier to test it out. (and you can imagine my Moms horror when she saw her spotted dyer)

I tried, to very little avail, to remove the dreaded spots but alas they would not leave. I must admit that hairspray worked for a little while but then alas the ink began to set and it was hopeless!
The lesson? Well if you ever ink something use hairspray on it immediately. ☺

The Paisley Handbag


New Design. It has 5 pocket/pouches. One on the outside, one big one on the inside and 3 elastic pouches. I also doubled stitched it all around for look and for hold.
I designed this purse some time back but only tested it a few weeks ago. This is number two. The Embroidery design is called "Peaceful Paisley" which I purchased off Embroidery Library. There will be many more pictures of different things I have/will be sewing in the next few weeks.
