Butterflies are hot!!

3 Jan

Hi everyone!! So, as I am on holidays right now (thank G.O.D, I really needed a break!) I am catching up on my sewing skills and I am trying to get some projects done that I had pending. One of the things that I needed to do for my new sewing machine was a nice cover, as it didn’t come with one.

I must say that since starting with this hobby of mine, I am discovering a world of possibilities in terms of the things that one can do for oneself and I am especially enjoying the wonderful world of FABRICS!! I discovered some really cool and old-school shops right in the center of Madrid where they sell the most amazing, vintage fabrics! I am really excited and I wish I could spend the entire day just browsing in these stores and finding wonderful treasures. The cool thing is that they sell fabric patches as well, and those are really cheap, great for patchwork or for small DIYs.

So, as I was saying, I needed a new cover for my sewing mating and… here it is!!!

Love this butterflies patterns and the texture is also really nice. Very natural and vintage…

Here is the final product!!! I quite like it (taking into account that I’m just starting with this, it’s not that bad, don’t you think???)

And, by the way, butterflies are quite cool – take a look at this personalized mannequin that a company called Manikiss is developing. I absolutely love them!!! The price is about 150 € and this is the only reason why I don’t have one already!! 383333_287405738026671_1032759208_n

Well, I hope you liked this post and I will keep you in the loop of the next projects (I really need to take advantage of the holidays!!!!).

Thanks for reading!
