I have so many projects on the go that are yet to be completed, but there are times when the creative juices aren't flowing as efficiently as one would like... and what better way to get them flowing again than by starting a new project?
I love nothing better than making creative gifts for people, it really motivates me. And it is often a great source of inspiration to put yourself into the shoes of the recipient-to-be and think about what they would like, and not necessarily what you want to make for them! They may prefer colour palettes that aren't necessarily in your comfort zone, or have a love of handbags of which you've never made before. By putting yourself in the mindset of another allows you the opportunity to think outside the box.
However, there comes a time when you want to look very much "inside the box" and just need to make something for yourself. And for me, that time had come! So I took myself off to the craft store and discovered these beautiful fabrics. I teamed them up with some co-ordinating threads and will be posting soon to show you what I've made with them!
Until next time, happy creating!
