One of the main problems that I have found with living in a one bed apartment, is that it is so difficult to keep tidy. I like to think of myself as an organised person anyway but anything that is left out looks messy 🙁 Adam has placed his guitar and amp in the living room/open plan living area. Accompanying his guitar are pics, tuners, leads and other things that I have no clue about!
Along came the double zippered pouch. Two compartments; one for the leads and the other for the other bits! This also counts as one of my Sew Selfless September items as it is a gift for Adam 🙂 … and it will keep things tidy!
I found this tutorial on Pinterest which seemed to be easy to follow. There was a video and a series of pictures to flick through! They were easy to follow and well labelled. I made my pouch bigger than the one on the tutorial because I needed to fit a larger lead in.
Recently I have been spending many hours reading different sewing blogs. I came across a very interesting post; The Vintage Sewing Pattern Pledge, courtesy of A stitiching Odyssey. I can’t lie, I loved the post but was a bit disheartened when I saw that it was posted back in February. I thought I was too late!! However, further reading made me find that Marie had pledged about using at least 5 of her Vintage patterns in 2014…and we are still in 2014…woohoo!! I can get involved.
So I pinched the button and realised that my first dress could be part of my very own pledge! I think it is a great idea to get involved in projects that other bloggers are doing. This little button on my blog also spurred me on to make the other dress from the 2 patterns that I bought from the antiques store a couple of weeks ago!
So here it is! The Butterick 3379 – 1970’s pattern!!
