Day 16: Craft/blog every day in June!

Hi 16 & today's prompts are:
Day 16: What do you want to learn to do OR Craft something that has stripes

Sewing, well dressmaking is what I'd most like to learn.......having a daughter
that likes clothes that  little bit different I think dressmaking would be a fab thing
to learn. I know the basics & can find my way around a pattern but to learn
properly would be fab. I've promised myself that this Summer I'm gonna try & take
 time to practice & maybe try find a class or two........and then Miss Rebecca might just
get that long black cape she's always wanted!

What would you like to learn?


  1. Great choice hun, especially if you have a daughter who likes things different. We have a programm called adult learner (it is run by our local authority) and they have courses for pretty much anything and everything, sometimes they are a year course, sometimes they are short courses sometimes even a day course.. Maybe check them out :-) xx

  2. Love your choice and think its a brill idea.

    I would like to be able to make things like cushions,curtains etc

    Hope you are well.


  3. I wish I could get into sewing / dressmaking! I can't find my way round a pattern to save my life though! I watched the entire series of the Great British Sewing Bee and loved it. I think maybe one day! It's on my to do list! xxx

  4. I sew a little, curtains and cushions mainly, like you I would love to learn how to do it properly - I did learn at school but that was so many years ago I can't remember a thing!

  5. I'm sure your dressmaking will be just as brilliant as your papercrafting and recent ventures in to jewellery making. Miss Rebecca will have a long wish list for you to make(lol)

  6. Fabulous choice Jo l once made a dress for my daughter while at dancing it was made from 4 pieces of material and l even managed to put short cut sleves in it l was so impressed and this was without a pattern you should have a go you will be surprised what you can put your hands too! xx
