I wore it in public!

05/19/2012 10:05:11 AM

Being able to sew something you chose from style to fabric to cut and wear it soon after has been quite an empowering thing for me. And I can’t thank Rikka of Ricochet and Away enough for hosting the I will wear it in public challenge. My ...

Show me some love

05/15/2012 07:42:02 AM

Hello and welcome to the new and improved (I hope) Lee Sew Junkie. I’ve had a major think this last few months and set some goals for myself for 2012, better late than never. We’ve started off quite well with two new dresses now happily ...

The accidentally grown-up dress

05/12/2012 08:38:36 AM

I’m not sure yet whether this is a happy accident or not, but I do know that this is not the dress I set out to do. There I was, trying to recreate yesterday’s garment challenge dress with different fabrics and something completely diff ...

Recycling/upcycling window shutters

Wake up call

04/23/2012 05:38:09 AM

I know, I know, I’ve been away from crafting for almost a month (yeah, that was my cut-off and I made it a few hours early). It took a completely unexpected message from a stranger to wake me from my stupor and make me want to write again. ...

Two maxi dresses

03/24/2012 01:00:41 AM

I didn’t really have time for a step-by-step this week but I just wanted to show off the two maxi dresses I made. As mentioned in the last post, I was invited to a fashion event on Friday and had nothing to wear. I decided to pattern a dress ...

I’m so happy that one of my most admired bloggers, Angel of Just Call Me Miss DIY, awarded me with a Liebster. Liebster, I found out from yet another favorite blog Peace, Love and Stitching, is a German word that means favorite, dearest or ...
