GEMMA SEWS DON'T YOU KNOW

I know I have been away for a long time and I don't really have a good excuse, I've just been busy enjoying life since I completed my Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. I'm not going to lie and tell you that it has all been easy, because it hasn't but I have certainly found more fun in life.

I've put great energies into my work and picked up some really exciting work and I have my fingers crossed that I will get some work for White Sands Australia. I have moved into a lovely new place with Mr Well Done and am in the process of making it my own. I turned 30 and decided it was a time I picked up a new hobby and started sewing.

Of course I am going to be the next Vivienne Westwood, so take a look at the first few pieces I made back in the summer, before I hit the big time :)

A little strapless number in a rather jaunty fabric.

The first thing I made and proudly owned by my sister.

Stay tuned for some further pieces I have made with my own fair hands. Any sewing tips would be greatly appreciated and if anyone has any ideas what I could do with a couple of metres of faux leather fabric, that would be great.

  1. I think the fact that you've been enjoying your life is a VERY good excuse! What you made are super cute, how lovely for your sister to own something that you made. Hope you're having fun with the house! xxx

  2. I would like to try sewing with faux leather but I just haven't the confidence - strikes me as the type of fabric you couldn't very well unpick without leaving holes.
