What have I being up to!


Well as you can see by the photographs this week I have being buzy with “fun” sewing. I was kept buzy by my best friend Sandy and of course my sister-in-law, to sew items for a flea market and for party props.

I sewed 3 tutu skirts for 3 wire bodies for a little’s girl ballet party for my sister-in-laws party business. Well, I don’t have any experience sewing with tulle. I chatted to one of my friends who sews a lot of wedding dresses and got a few tips.

I also sewed up sets of bunting, the pink and purple sets are for Sandy to be sold @ a flea market. The pink and blue flower set and small bunting is for LookC my little nieces lemonade stand. Hope to show you some pictures of the stand.

The red heart bunting was sewed on to hessian sacking flags for a rustic outdoor wedding.

Hope to finish quilting my “Take Two” quilt next week!

I wish you all a happy sewing week.

Love

  1. What a great idea for a lemonade stand! I hope she makes a lot of sales. 😀

    Was the tulle hard to work with? I’m very new to sewing have have yet to try anything beyond baby quilts.

    I also love the red heart bunting but am not familiar with hessian. Is that similar to burlap?

    • Will let you know how the lemonade stand is doing!
      Tulle is not that difficult. What I did is use thee layers of tulle I placed a narrow ribbon on the top of the three layers. and used two rows of gather stitch on my sewing machine, this helps a lot when you pull the gather stitch together.
      Hessian is burlap.
      If I can assist in anything email me on mommennikki@gmail.com

  2. Wow! I really LOVE the heart bunting. I’m not super crafty so I may try it with hot glue. It looks so cute and very doable!

  3. Thanks for sharing the tutu tips in your comments! I’d love to see myself a long tulle petticoat to wear under dresses. All the ones in the shops are too flouncy for a grown-up!

  4. Wow Nikki That looks great! I used to do a little bit of stitching (nothing as great as yours) but it has been a while since I have taken my sewing machine out! I am inspired to start again.

  5. it all looks too gorgeous! Might have to dig out that sewing machine i haven’t used in 5 years, or Joslyne’s suggestion of a hot glue gun is a great one.

  6. I do believe all the ideas you have introduced for your post.
    They’re very convincing and can definitely work.
    Still, the posts are very short for novices. May just you
    please extend them a bit from next time? Thank you for the post.
