I was planning to sew the whole day but I forgot that I was going to go to a crafts fair in Zwolle (NL) – Handwerkbeurs.
Before I left I put on my new top Day-To-Night Drape Top (pattern by MariaDenmark) to take few photos. I think I still can make it a little shorter. I have to think about it.
Here some details … a ‘heartbeat’ hem finishing… and a neck line.
Once again thanks Kim-ing for persuading me to make this top. I already see it will be wear very often – both of them – the dark blue one including … and probably I will make even more tops. You need only 70 – 80 cm fabric for it. I will look for niece fabrics during upcoming Fabric Fair – StoffenSpektakel. I am sure these fabrics will not stay long in my stash.
And then I was off to Zwolle (NL) for Handwerkbeurs. It was a lot to see there… next time I will try to go a little earlier – I know now what to expect there.
It was very inspiring. I was mostly interested in nuno felting technique. I have enough addresses for supplies – silk fabric, silk and different kind of wall. I would like to give it try – start with small project – a scarf. It was nice to talk to people behind the projects, e.g. Ingeborg Honer-Marsch from Bodyflower, creative women from Kunstwolf and Indura. I came across beautiful scarfs, jackets and other items made of Kashmir with beautiful hand embroidering at Kashmir Heritage.
I have enough to look on the internet.
And now really I will try to finish this skirt…
