That little kitchen corner


Well today I got 5 minutes to paint the walls and whilst everyone went swimming, I started my little project.

I wanted to cover the front of the trolley with a little curtain. Now to a lot of you that seems like a pretty easy thing to do but I have never sewn anything other than help Sophie with her little bit of bunting. 



I choose gingham because it's all straight lines to sew along LOL! But I must say, I was pretty pleased with my straight sewing.

And ta-da there it is, the finished curtain or I should say curtains!

I'm really chuffed with how it's turned out and now the walls are finally painted I can pretty up the corner with some bits and pieces.

Will there be any more sewing? Well maybe, I quite enjoyed it but realise I can only do it when I can can get a bit of concentrated time. Sophie and I are booked in on a cushion making session with the very lovely Millie Moon in a couple of weeks, so we will see if a cushion is the next sewing project I attempt.

Great job! Little sewing tip though, put your pins across the hem (basically turn them 90 degrees) so the sewing machine needle skips straight over them, as the way you had them in the photo means the machine's needle can hit the pin and the needle snaps… I learnt this lesson when I first started sewing but luckily my glasses deflected the flying needle away from my eyes! :-)

Thanks for the tip Karen - I was taking them out just before I sewed - probably went a lot slower than most LOL!
