Everybody seems to be making sewing plans this time of year, and since I’m looking at having some more free time at my hands soon, some project planning seems like a great way to ward off the double dare of funemployment and fall. Also, the London Fashion Week is on, so I spent some timeContinue reading “Rawr! – or How to copycat”
This is going to be one of those rambles, so if you decide to read on, don’t say you haven’t been warned.
Today I wanted to show you the finished black cords. Especially for you, Sylvia 🙂 Really, I had the best of intentions and was stoked to finish the thing. For all of 15 minutes. Then I noticed really bad looping of the bobbin thread, and my machine started to make this noise again, and IContinue reading “You win some, you lose some”

The black cords are still waiting, but I find it hard to muster up the energy to sew after work and mostly wait for the weekend.
