it may just look like an everyday boring box.... but inside this box is my very first sewing machine!:)
we were given a £50 voucher (for all our hard work during Model Store) in work and up until the last minute i was just going to get a Topshop voucher and treat myself to some clothes. but then i had a 'lightbulb' moment and realised that i didn't really need anymore clothes right now and i had been wanting a sewing machine for as long as i could remember!
so what luck that Argos sold a mini sewing machine for exactly £50 (well a few pence cheaper due to the VAT cuts!). now all those idea's that have been swimming around my head may actually come to life
first thing im going to do is alter these velvet leggings, taking them in a bit and maybe lengthening them, then im going to make a skirt or two out of some dark blue velvet i picked up in a charity shop today. and just to further my current fixation with velour, i also bought a beautiful purple velvet jacket in Help the Aged today, a little bright for my liking but im trying to move away for the black and grey... or maybe i could dye it, just to dull it down a little. does anyone know if you can dye velour?however until i get all my assignments done, the sewing machine is going to remain in the box :(
