So what does a sewist do with no sewing machine? :(

Standard

So, disaster strikes! My poor Etsy store is looking a bit sparse at the moment and I’ve been beavering away planning and starting to sew more stock.

However, my poor little sewing machine decided that enough was enough and freaked out every time I tried to sew more than 5 inches! Waaaahhhh!

So, little sewing machine has gone into retirement and I’ve had to put my overlocker on EBay to boost my Tracey-needs-a-new-sewing-machine fund. 😦

So, what does a girl do whilst waiting to be blessed with better equipment? “Ahem!” She makes accessories!

Fabric flowers to be more specific!

I’ve decided that I want to photograph my new dresses with the models wearing co-ordinating floral wrist cuffs, headbands, brooches, etc. So this seemed as good a time as any to get this done!

There are so many brilliant tutorials on the net that are easily found by putting “fabric flower tutorials” into Google or Pinterest. Believe me, it’s an awesome way to use up your scrap fabric and there is no end of inspiration out there! Give it a go guys!
