Sewing ProgressHello there!
How are you all doing, I do hope that you are all having a rather spiffing week?
I'm still up to my eyeballs at work, wandering when it will slow down? I love my job I really do, but it's all I seem to have time for at the moment and I am longing to spend a little more time with you guys.
Even though I haven't been doing a huge amount of crafting at the moment, Dennis has been working up something of a crafting storm.
Over the last year or so he's really been getting into sewing and really has a natural talent when it comes to transforming a piece of fabric into something rather magical.
He's recently invested in some supplies and now has a proper cutting board along with a very handy rotary cutter.
Along with our trusty sewing machine, Dennis has been happily spending some time working on projects.
Making a mess with a big chaotic mountain of fabric, he's really been going for it on the crafting front.
I grabbed the camera the other day whilst he was working and took some snaps as he very smoothly manoeuvred his was around his mound of organised crafting chaos. It was rather lovely to watch!
The products he's making are gorgeous and the workmanship is top class:
Not bad eh?! This is my personal favourite:
A doggy poop bag dispenser! It's been rather practical now that we have Poppy. A great way of holding the little bags in a fun, practical and stylish way. Super cute!!!
Dennis is enjoying working on his new found hobby so much that we have decided that we are going to try and sell some of the items in an online shop. I like the sound of this very much and thought that I'd join him on the collaboration!
It's about time I opened a little shop.
I'm going to be making some crochet projects to sell and Dennis will be working on his sewing products. We are in the process of making a little webpage for our shop and I'm hoping that we can have it up and running within the next month. It's a rather exciting project for the two of us and nice that we can work on a combined venture once again!
I'll keep you posted over the next weeks giving you more details once we have them finalised! Until next time!
