Sewing

by ysoldateague January 13, 2010

scissor cushion-2My studio’s still a bit of a mess, but I finally have something that I’ve dreamed of since I was about 8 (I fell in love with sewing long before knitting) – a space to sew that doesn’t require any setup. A couple on nights ago I threw together a cover for my chair’s cushion, something that’s been desperately needed for a long time.

The scissor bows are making me so happy, they’re made from tape printed by Jezze. It’s not weird to adorn everything with craft related imagery, is it?

Spurred on by the success of my wee cushion project this evening I started cutting out fabric for something bigger – Macaron from Colette patterns.
YIP 13 - Jan 13th - cutting into the good stuff
I find cutting into fabric so very difficult, I’m always worried that the project will go wrong, or that I’ll find a much better use for that particular piece. The result of this of course is that I have a bunch of fabric that I never use, which is ridiculous. No more! If it does go wrong, while it might be harder to fix than knitting, it will at least have been a learning experience – and I’ve got plenty more fabric.
