Home Ec.

WOW i just had to share this beautiful shop/craft workshop with you. It's amazing right!? 

Home Ec. as it's called is owned by the talented Jenny Ryan; author of Sew Darn Cute: 30 Sweet & Simple Projects to Sew & Embellish, (which i bought recently and very much recommend!)
Over at Home Ec. they have all sorts of brilliant crafty classes, which i would love to go to! just a shame it's in L.A!

ooohh i really, really want to go! Have a look over at her Flickr for more inspiring pictures..

Look What I Bought Today!

Some lovely bias binding! 
and some more! CK fabric, this paisley one is so pretty. New ribbon too :)
i think they would make a perfect decorative trim on a tea cosy.

Custom Wedding Invites

I have been cracking on with my friends wedding invites recently, and they are slowly coming together. Here is a finished version..
They're a tri-fold design, and i'm making a pocket for the inside to store extra information; like maps and things like that.

this is how many i've completed fully - only another 100 to go! wish me luck! :)
Have a great weekend!
