My (slightly sidetracked) Creative Space

Sidetracked ‘cos I had planned to get lots of sewing done for the Sugar & Spice Market in June. Sidetracked ‘cos I found a Meh Tai baby carrier at the op shop and it needed a bit of “work” for us to use. It’s such a simple design being just a square with the straps sewn to the corners. But this one was such a boring plain blue (unfortunately I forgot to take a before photo). So after a bit of shaping (the edges of the square were cutting into Maya’s thighs) a bit of colour and the addition of some vintage fabric, this is how it looks now. What do you think? I’m much happier with it now. And Maya’s much happier in it!

I also started on something new (like I don’t have enough projects to work on!).

I’ve been sorting and resorting little bits of scraps into piles. More later!

And I started cutting up this fabric to make my winter skirt. I'm not very good at dressmaking, but hopefully it turns out okay and hopefully it will fit me.

Have you been sidetracked this week? I’m heading over to Kootoyoo now to check out your creative spaces.

Good luck with the skirt! The baby carrier looks great with the vintage fabric and they make a huge difference when bubs is small. My boys would always go straight to sleep in it.

Your carrier look brilliant! I bet you saved a fortune too. Wonder what you're up to with those little piles. Is there anything more fun than sorting fabric into piles. Hope you have a wonderful weekend :)
