Me Made March Day 27

Today I've finished the bag for my sewing buddy as part of our Great Exchange as I'm calling it!  I'm so excited, we're both posting them off tomorrow so we'll both be checking our post in excitement each and every day from tomorrow onwards I think!  I've also started a Great Exchange with Sarah from Narcoleptic in a cupboard but the details are to be finalised so really excited about that too!  I've also definitely decided that I'm going on the UK meet up with the Sew Weekly gang to London to the V&A and so will try my hand at making the Horrock's dress pattern once I've printed it off and worked out how to draft up the pattern size.  I've also taken the floral dress that went a bit wrong apart by removing the skirt from the body so I can sort out those pleats.  Phew!

So, as you can imagine not much else done!  Here's my comfy outfit for the day:

Me made top, shop bought jeans and favourite red patent shoes with classy red and pink stripy socks!

I'm looking so pleased as my Dad got me a really cool gift, it's a spirit level and ruler in one with a sort of handle thing so I can cut fabric with my rotary cutter without a) slicing off a finger and b) keep a straight edge as it's metal unlike my plastic school ruler I was using!  Yay!

So, anything fun happening?  Any projects you're itching to get started on?


  1. have fun on the trip -- sounds like it should be a blast!

  2. That is a great picture of you!! I'm so proud of all the things you've made this month!

  3. Aww! Thank you Trish!

    I will take lots and lots of photos I promise!


Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment!
