Since the new series of The Great British Sewing Bee started a couple of weeks ago, I have wanted to do some sewing. I was exactly the same last year! I am enjoying this series so much and have once again been inspired to buy pretty fabric and dust down my sewing machine!
I bought some ditsy floral fabric from Fabric Rehab online - a metre of soft cotton lawn. It was £7.20 per metre which I thought was pretty good. I love the print and the fabric feels like good quality.
Today I spent a very enjoyable couple of hours making myself a scarf. It only took me a couple of hours from start to finish and was a simple project to get me used to using my sewing machine again. I wear a scarf everyday and I think this one will become a new favourite!
Even better, I still have half a metre of the fabric left! Any ideas what I could make with it? It has to be simple as my sewing skills are pretty basic!
Are you enjoying the sewing bee too?
