Getting crafty

So recently I decided to finally whip out my sewing machine for the 1st time ever which was given to me Christmas 2008. Its actually less complicated than I thought and now I'm trying to find inspirations to make stuff using it.

After testing it out a few times on bits of material I found around the house I made a cover for my machine to keep dust away. I know it looks very simple but I am extremely delight with the outcome of the bow ^^. Just need to get more thread and fabric in different colours. Anyone know of a good place to look?

Whilst doing some sale shopping in Bluewater I came across an arts/craft shop that I have never noticed before. They actually have a wide range of products from jewellery/card making to paints, pens, brushes, books and more. I found myself spending almost 30mins in there.

4 textiles pens and a tube of pva glue and a spatula. There was so much more I wanted to buy and look at but was being rushed by the shoppers I was shopping with. They also have an online store so check it out if you are interested.

Other stuff I brought online over the past week (being ill at home meant a lot of time for online shopping lols).

Some fabric paint and a 25pc brush and sponge set both from ebay.

Some newbie doodling I did on old clothing garments. I used the textile pens on the green top and fabric paint on the cream top.

Back to the drawing board and brainstorm some ideas. Ciao~
