I decided at the beginning of this month to take part in the 12months of sewing challenges over on carolyn's blog.
It was getting threateningly close to showing off week and I hadnt even thought of soemthing to sew! Until the other day I decided to make a laptop sleeve for my new laptop.
I was quite impressed with my bias tape ability as I made it all and then sewed it on. The most bias tape Ive done successfully ever! Well actually the only time Ive successfully done bias tape!
my new laptop sleeve...
Fabric: Outer Layer is dark blue Denim, Lining is "ginger blossom" by Sandi Henderson.
I found this quite easy and for the first time in my life I FOLLOWED THE INSTRUCTIONS PROPERLY!!! woo!!! I generally decide that I need to add my own little spin on the tutorial, simply because I refuse to do as Im told!! And I like to personalise things. This time I thought I would challenge myself to do it exactly as written and it looks really good :-)
For more finished sewing projects head over to Carolyn's.
