Decorating = Finishing !!

For the past week or so I've been involved with decorating (buying etc etc) which has led into finishing a few outstanding sewing jobs - they are all being updated here on the Stitcherydoodaa Blog (click if you want to know more) & include the Humpty, the eyelet curtains & the patchwork waistcoat.

Make-Do-and-Mend on display


From past experiences & reflections of my life to date, many items I've created have often been made from recycling previously used textiles &/or haberdashery as well as various items found around the home. At this early stage of development (although unfinished & incomplete), I've decided to temporarily display some of my 'Makes' here - the one above part of the embroidered book.

Ready for repair!

Having removed the covers, I've now washed & dried them ready for repair - I just hope they haven't shrunk too much!

Sad Floor Cushion ...


Bought this into the studio Saturday ready for its repair as its looking a little 'sad'. Made a few years ago using 1940s mats, it needs a good clean & tidy up. This will begin next week - pix & details will be found here: REVAMPS

Patchwork cone

Yesterday I was in the studio & finished this. Bought at an exhibilion as a kit, I thought I'd give it a try. It would make a great idea for an oversize thistle or flower head.

Wave curtain heading idea ...

This is mainly a note to myself (but you may also be interested!) .... had a thought today regarding my 'wave' curtains. While trying to think of an alternative to using 'dedicated' curtain tape for these style of curtains, I think I may be able to use 2 orindary types 'in tandem' as I have loads of this in my store. On my phone, I can now keep myself posted on this!
