The scatty sewer

A scatty sewers journey through the world of sewing

Sorry, my bad

I’m sorry for being so quiet, but I’ve had a lot to do of late. The main thing is that I’ve finished my teacher training and although I know I’ve already passed I have to wait until Wednesday for the official announcement 🤣🤣 so now that’s out the way I have spent the last month sewing and testing for indie sewing pattern designers.

So let me show you what I’ve been making:


All this since I stopped studying! Didn’t realise how much of my time was being wasted studying 😂😂😂 I could have been homing my sewing skills.

My awakening

Ok I’ve had an overlocker (serger) in storage for over a year (closer to 2) and I was too scared to use it, so I made a pledge with myself, when I finished uni I would sit myself down and learn how to use it by watching the Craftsy video I had bought 2 years ago with the full intention of learning when the damn thing was new. So that’s what I did and now I’m a serger master, I’ve made loads with it, well that was up until it broke! And now I feel bereft without it, strange for so long I was scared of the stupid thing and now I can’t live without it 😂😂😂

So whilst I have the stupid thing fixed I’m having to revert to using my sewing machine and the overlock stitch to finish off all my seams adding multiple hours to my sewing time (it feels like hours now) 😫, isn’t it strange how you can be so scared of something for so long and then realise you can’t live without the damn thing?? 

Sewing for my holidays

Again I’m trying to sew all my own clothes for my holidays and I’m determined to make my own bikinis and so far I’ve made 3 all different designs, I’m actually enjoying using swim fabric, it’s really slippery and challenging but great fun to use. See the pics above to see my bikini attempts.

Well I have a huge amount of sewing to get through before my holiday in August including making my graduation dress! Yes I’m going to my graduation this time in University South Wales, Newport, but I can’t find the right fabric for it and time is running out, so I’d better get a move on 😀

I promise it won’t be this long again 

Happy scatty sewing guys
