A piece a Week – A Silk SampleTunic & a Minibar & some ironing board covers!

Back to creating and having the time to play has been so good for me over the last couple of weeks with the kiddos back at school after the Holiday break! I am getting a start on my clothing adventure this year and with a bit of luck (and time on my side!) I will make it happen. 
I found some silk samples at FabMo that I was initially using in a wrap scarf but the fabric was way too beautiful with the embroidered detail that I have used it in this tunic. It looks super cute with jeans and will be perfect for a night out for the Arts Focus reception on Thursday evening – I will have to get some pics of the dress in action!

This dress has pockets too

Last Thursday as I was driving around the neighborhood I saw this great table with wheels sitting on the side of the road. By the time I came home from school it was still there, score!! I met the owner of the table in the street and she said take it away – yay! I had been thinking about making a minibar at home and here it is… Lift up the leaf of the table, get a glass and mix away!
A rescued table – add a tray, some rum and gin and a succulent for decoration and we are ready to make some cocktails!

A couple of projects sitting on the To Do list since the holidays have been making an ironing board cover for a portable IKEA ironing board for the sewing class at school and as I plan lots of clothes sewing this year – I chose to update the ironing board from Freecycle with inspirational yellow for the craft room.

Getting ready Sew!
