Lots of home inspiration

Hi there, sorry I’ve been abit absent lately!! I’m busying doing lots of crafts and working on my degree. Just thought I’d show you what I’ve been working on in my home and hopefully inspire people to get creative themselves!
Oh and also I have a lovely old Jones sewing machine that I bought for £12.00 at my local auction in north yorkshire 🙂 I’m not going to use it, it just ties in lovely with my fabric shelves!!

Tried to make a dream catcher ... I think I'm going to add a few more bits to it though such as beads & feathers

I know these are normally for children's room but I think they look pretty! Also the headboard is upholstered!

Lots of fabric that is colour coordinated!

How to turn up a dress quickly

Image

This is my little sister dress her mum bought for her the other day but it is very long, and long dresses are not good for small children! Lots of tripping over involved. So i turned it up for her. So here is a simple demonstration on how to do it. 🙂

Step 1: Decide on what length you would like the dress to be and cut the remainder of the fabric off. I use crimping scissors to make sure the fabric doesn’t fray.

(Keep the leftover fabric, i used this to make a little headband to match the dress using elastic)

Image

Step 2:Turn the rim up and press. Make sure it has the same thickness all the way along.

Image

Step 3: Repeat the same process as before,

Image

Pin the fabric in place once pressed so it doesn’t move whilst sewing!!

Image

Step 4: Sew all the way along making sure its straight. Easy peasy!! Your probably didn’t need a tutorial but hey.. i thought i’d do one anyway!!

🙂 Happy Sewing!!

Mothers Day!

A really lovely day. Mothers are brilliant and should be appreciated. Spoil your mum today and do something lovely that she will thank you for.

It doesnt have to cost any money, give her a really long hug, cook her a meal, make her lots of cups of teas!! 🙂 Anything that you know she will like.

I have bought my mum a bunch of flowers (pictured: I also added some glitter too them… i love glitter!!) and some wine because i know she likes chilling out with a glass.

What are you doing for your mum??Image
