Vintage pencil case

…or how I love experimenting with hand stitching. Well, not so much experimenting as combining hand stitching and machine stitching. I must say that I’m pretty fond of a result, even though this vintage-y fabric isn’t usually my type of favorite prints. That being said, I love the overall effect. I think it all comes…

Dark side of sewing

…or how I need my “me” time + rage issues. Two hours later and it's done! This time the process went much faster! I feel so accomplished! #tote #bag #project #finished #success #creative #creativity #project #floral #flowery #printed A photo posted by Creating Magic (@creatingmagic4) on Sep 24, 2016 at 8:08am PDT Today after lunch…

Little Missuz

…or how I can’t stop sewing! Yup, I did it again and I’m sorry, but I’m not sorry! Sewing is what keeps me going, what makes me happy and what makes me positively focus on my longer term goals! So what’s new on my list? This little cat! She was supposed to be a pin…

Bye bye Etsy

… or how nothing is a perfect option for everyone. Let’s face it: Etsy’s a magnificent site for all of us creative people, from all walks of interests, and I will never dispute that fact. But likewise, Etsy isn’t ideal for everyone, and there comes a point where you need to just stop, observe and…

So, I’ve cheated

…or how I stopped feeling guilty for wanting to feel good! I just can’t not sew. Ok? I can’t. I can put the wool and other yarns to a safe place and wait until winter, but fabric? No way. No. The desire is much too strong, and the possibilities of creating something out of a…

Drowning in fabric

This is what happens when I’m a fabric hoarder and my friends are enablers!

Impatient fingers…

…or how I can’t start sewing until I get a proper job! It was a promise I gave to myself and my parents, that I will withhold from any type of sewing or knitting until I have my own financial means of providing for fabric and yarn. That’s a huge motivation for me to become…

Dr. Who inspired fingerless gloves!

As a geek I’m always on the lookout for new awesome crocheting, knitting and sewing patterns. But sometimes, you just want to make your own thing! So that’s exactly what I did! I had created a fingerless glove recipe, inspired by my deep love for Ten and Eleven, from the BBC’s Doctor Who! In case…

Alterations

…or how I saved the money. I’m not a fan of second hand shops. At least, not when it comes to something I would wear. Accessories are, of course, a different thing. Because, who could ever resist such adorable prints and the feel of the fabric. The exception is when I get something from a…

Am I too late?

….or, why I’m angry at my country’s educational system. First of all, I realize that every country isn’t ideal in a different way, and that no matter where you go, some things will not work as planned. I also acknowledge my own doing in the matter, because at the time I didn’t know any better….
