Sewing class & crochet TaDa AKA Creative space (Blogtoberfest#1)

Hello there.. New readers and old... I welcome you both with open arms!!!
So this is my first (yes I'm late!!) BLOGTOBERFEST post, This year blogtober is being held over at I Saw You Dancing where Kat is hosting this year, to give our vetron Cathy over at {tinniegirl} a much deserved break, Giveaway goodness is still over with Cam at Curlypops...

Blogtoberfest is held on October and is a chance to meet other bloggers and get you blogging up to full speed (for me anyways!!) That means a blig post a day... I have been at a low seep of say 1 post every 4 days. So I'm shaking things up around here... So on to the post!!

How is everyone???

We are great here, the boys are happy at school/nursery and I am loving school too!! I am now officially back in learning. I am studying Garment Making as well as Accountancy & finance, I am going to find the latter a challenge but the Garment Making is brilliant I just love it. I am oh so inspired, it's so good to be surrounded by like minded souls! Everyone abuzz with ~ Oh where did you get that fabric? ~ What a lovely pattern ~ How long have you been sewing....

The class is for 2 hours. So it wasn't all chatting, I managed to get some sewing done... Now this has been in the stash for sooooo long both fabric (Michael Miller if I remember rightly) & Amy Butler pattern.

I am proud I was able to get the fabric match so well with the darts, I have to say I was a little worried!!

I am loving the darts... But am aware I need a tailors ham or a good tutorial for one?!?!?
Now for my crochet TaDa...

This has been a frustration but highly rewarding project.. I have to say I got just a little board of it I like a project with a less repetitive air about it!!!

I really enjoyed putting in the beads... It's my first time adding beads to a crochet project, I would defo recommend it. It gives the project that little bit of flair!!

This is the back view..

Look at how yummy it is!!!
The pattern is by Erika knight ~ Beaded Cobweb Wrap
The wool is Debbie Bliss ~ Party Angel
You can find me on ravelry Handmadehappiness

I have to say I think this was SOOO worth the work, and my mother in-law loves it!! It is a belated birthday present. I have a beaded lavender heart on my sewing table.. I plan on making a drawstring dust bag for the wrap.. Any good tutes you know of?!?!?

  1. I love that wrap - I've never added beads to crochet either, and you are definitely inspiring me!

    1. It is defo worth looking into... I really think it finished this project off!!! Glass beads are best... I think gutterman seem to be the mojst consistent :) Happy beading!!

  2. Hi I'm just popping over to say hello to a fellow "blogtoberfest-er" Love the dress you made - great fabric. Good luck with your course!
