Project Number One

Sorry that it took so long (couldn't find the camera for ages) but here's the finished project. 

A lovely, stripey, bright tea cosy...

And on the other side...
I did get a bit of help from my mum as I am still not totally confident, hopefully for my next project I can do it by myself.

I am currently making some bunting for my room, so that will be my next post.

Birthday Fabrics

Just a quick post to show you some lovely fabrics that I got for my birthday - Mum has already asked me to make her a stripy tea-cosy using MY fabric as my first proper project on my new machine!!!

We thought this photo might make you smile!

My brand new sewing machine

Yesterday I bought my first sewing machine with some birthday money.

A very small, very light, bright red machine!

And one of the best parts about it - it was only £50 from John Lewis!  It is a fantastic machine, especially for beginners (like me). So a lot of things can be expected coming from this machine before long. I have already started a present for my mum's birthday so that will appear in one of my next posts.
