My very first skirt:)

Inspired by Bee Skirt I created my very first skirt!
And I love it! The cotton fabric is lovely. It can be made really quickly and without much of the trouble so no flustrations. Even fitting the invisible zip went nice and smooth (despite the fact that my machine failed on sewing the zip) The pattern and the instructions were very straight forward and helpful.
The only problem I have encountered was the sizing. The skirt turned to be 2 sizes to big even when I cut the pattern a size too small. But do I regret it? No! I'll just make another one:)))

Half-an-hour projects take 1

Those cushion covers were made on request in 20 min. Nothing special but they are blue, fluffy and add a bit of colour to our lounge not mentioning the sofa. Sasha loves them already:)

My variation of Craftsy's Book Bag

 Inspired by Book Bag I decided to make my own one. I didn't follow exactly the pattern- went slightly my way, which is not bad- just different. Fabric if thin (cotton) reinforced by an interfacing and I attached just a ribbon handle. Not bad for an hour project I hope:)

The stitch lounge photos

As the Stitch Lounge is back in two weeks I might as well post some photos from the last one:)

 These are the links to the last post of mine, just to ease it up:

Whipstitch- another inspiration

I guess I came across Whipstitch on CraftGossip and OMG! So inspirational!
First there was the tutorial with the film to it:

then I found the post on the blog about emergency dress:
What Deborah wrote about the dress and the attitude to sewing- got me thinking, so, 1/ On my way to at last finish my project; 2/ prepare to make the bee skirt
