Getting crafty

29 Jan

I haven’t updated what I was up to last week in the craft department.  Seems time just zooms sometimes.

First up, last Wednesday I joined the Craftivist Collective in making keyrings for their “Hijacking Valentines Day” event.  This is a nifty little group which combines crafting and activism.  If you want details of how to make your own keyrings and what they are up to for valentine’s day check out their blog.

Valentine keyrings

Last weekend my mum visited and helped me in sewing my first skirt.  The last time I sewed was in primary school sewing class and I can tell you I was pretty awful – I don’t think I actually even finished an item.  We had to make a wrap skirt (how could I not even get that right?) and a quilted placemat – mine just bubbled up all over the show.  Anyhow with a great amount of help I have now sewn something and I am pretty darn impressed.  I only did the hem last night so will update with pictures soon.
