Sewing FO - My Craftsy Apron

Here is my sewing FO for this week.
(affiliate links included)

It is my apron that I made by following the Craftsy class - The Easy Modern Apron by Betz White

I love the way the apron turned out, it looks really professionally made, neat and tidy :)

the easy modern apron

Fabric used: Quilting Cotton
Time needed to complete project: I finished this project over one full day, but I took my time as I wanted it to turn out well!
Would I recommend this course: Yes, it was well worth the investment
Tip for new participants: I was a little confused about the waist and bib ties cutting instructions, but Betz was prompt to elaborate for me :) They are to be cut on the fold and as such the pattern pieces (if you are making some) need to be half as long as stated!

I would love to hear how you found this class, so leave your comments below :)

Spray Dyeing Cloth

Last week I needed to create a birthday gift and so I decided to spray dye a pull tied bag as a WIP bag for socks :)

To dye this bag I needed:

A cotton pull tie bag, washed
Fashion spray - fabric spray dye
a stencil
some cardboard to place inside the bag
a covered surface

spray dye


Place the cardboard inside the bag, and the stencil on top of the bag where you would like to see the pattern on the finished product.

Go wild :)

Allow to dry and then iron underneath a cotton cloth to fix the colours!

Blog Absence

As life is, I am very busy on my homesteading side of life and not so much on the creative side of things over the last while.

Due to this fact, I have not posted here in a very long while, and really do miss you all..

I am not blog-silent, so-to-speak, but am busy on my Homesteading blog at present and this is where I you can find me.

I would love it if you would visit me there if you miss me too :)

You can find me HERE

I hope to be back on this blog shortly with some wonderful new projects :)
