A little make a little that

This week life officially became hard and so I distracted myself with a few things:

New nail colour.

A travel sewing bag as I'm finding myself sewing in multiple places and in need of my trusty supplies.

A pouch for aforementioned supplies as I was pricking myself with them and losing them in the bag.

A baby bedsheet for my friend's newest family addition, will hopefully get it to her soon! I followed this tutorial to make it.

Some fleece fabric I couldn't resist, could be a cute lining for a laptop case or kindle case.

Kimbra, again!

Never have I had the luck and pleasure of seeing a singer I love twice in half a year. And yet, that is the case with Kimbra! She was last in my area as an opening act for Foster The People back in June which was such a wonderful show and I will never ever ever forget it. I had a feeling however that Kimbra would be back to headline her own show but I had no idea how soon! A couple months later I found out she would be in town on October 26th! Of course I had my ticket waay ahead of time. Soon that day came and although I didn't have AS an amazing time as back in June (really tough to top anyhow!) it was incredible, Kimbra is truly a talented young artist and seeing her outrageous outfit made me wish I was designing her stage costumes!! I once again took many photos and filmed a few clips but haven't yet put it together to display nicely onto here and so in the meantime here are some of the mobile photos I took and then instagramed for good measure ;)

Kimbra's opening act The Stepkids

Even though a bit small, I thought the illustration work was nice.

And of course I had to get my own copy of Vows!

Honourable Mentions

This past week I:

Finished a pin cushion kit for myself thanks to my previous workplace. And this won't be the last one I make!

Ate cakes with Nicole at Pekarna before going to watch 'Wreck It Ralph'. 

Saw this incredible mural by A'shop after a meeting with Smigli Slings.

Met up with some long time gal pals at Benedicts for lunch/brunch.

Had a closer look at my weird hair and have been pondering what to do with it..

Sewing books galore!

I've become obsessed! Since working at Emeline & Annabelle's I've become even more enamoured with sewing than I thought possible. I've also taken on the task of completing as many projects as humanly possible and accumulating more fabric and books than I probably need but definitely need, haha!

Here is a small preview of the books I've recently bought and have fallen in love with:

Handmade Beginnings - Anna Maria Horner

Romantic Home Sewing - Christina Strutt

Zakka Sewing - Therese Laskey + Chika Mori

A Field Guide to: Fabric Design - Kimberley Kight
