Oh wow what a busy week I had last week. Firstly I must apologies to those bloggers I didn't get round to visit. There just wasn't enough hours in my days. I had everything from Wedding dresses, Bridesmaids dresses and Evening dresses to trousers, shirts and many special requests from special customers, family and friends.
I have a few photos to share with you of my desk at different stages....
One of my requests from one of my special customers was for a pocketed hanging storage....it had to be 30x60cm with two button holes at the top 20cm apart. It had to have a zipped pocket at the top then three rows of pockets of different sizes going down the length and the pockets were pretty specific to include a pen pocket in the top row.....he didn't want much did he? So I set to working out all the measurements required and here I am mid flow.
Here it is finished....it was quite a challenge but I'm rather pleased with how it turned out for him.
Another of my requests was from some special little people in my life for clothes making for their Barbie and Ken dolls so I've been hunting out and printing off some simple patterns....I'm hoping they will be coming to help me make them too so I'm really looking forward to that.
The other pic I'm sharing today is this one to make you laugh. You've heard the saying...'If it looks too good to be true then it probably is' haven't you?
I ordered some new tape measures off eBay for another little project I had in mind and these were.... 'a pack of 5 fabric superior tailoring tape measures' for just 80p!
Firstly they aren't fabric but are a very cheap plastic and I've laid one against the tape measure I use every day just to show you just how 'accurate' [or lack of it] they are. Each inch is more than 1 1/4" in length!! Needless to say I have now had my money back and wont be using them for the project I had in mind.....but it did make me giggle.
That's all from me for today. I will be head down ploughing my way through my sewing mountain but will do my best to pop over to say hello in between jobs as and when I can.
