Happy Mail

More happy mail from two lovely ladies

I was amazed to get all these lovely fibres from Sue. She already sent me a package that was massive. Love the vibrant colours. I’m thinking boho, mermaid, and forest journals are in the making with these.

Then the lovely Tonia sent me these amazing trims:

So excited to make pockets with them and do some sewing with them.

My first go at sewing

I was putting this off for so long, but then my friend dropped by for a visit and set up my sewing machine for me – yay!

She showed me what to do and sewed a few things for me to see how it was done.

Then I gave it a go be sewing some envelopes I made from book pages.

There were a few duds but I managed to get a few that looked all right.

Here’s the best one of the lot:

Proud of myself for actually getting it straight – woohoo!

I’ve done a couple of tags and envelopes that I included in a junk journal, so, I’ve made a start.

I’ll have to do lots of practice, though, to feel comfortable with sewing. Looking forward to the day when it’s just habit.
