I know, it took way too long for these to hit the shop. I would love to create extensive collections and bring them out at once with a cool lookbook and everything. But this is still a side hustle, and only I end up holding creations back because I think they're not ready. So I went ahead with making product photos, and now all three items with the moon phases are finally available, plus a new (old) vest.
If you're just a bit into eco-friendly clothing, you probably came across bamboo. It is often marketed as a sustainable option but without giving further information on why. Let's take a closer look beyond that green bamboo picture, and we'll see some problems. It's not all negative, though. I will leave you with some advantages and links to read or watch more.
How do I sew on the patch now? - Have you ever wondered after you bought a patch from the cool band at the gig (or online)? This blog post is mainly about simple screen-printed patches made of fabric because embroidered patches, which often have an iron-on coating, are a bit different. Regardless of whether you have a sewing machine at your disposal or not, here you will definitely find an option that suits your taste and which, in my experience, will hold.

My biggest crochet project ever! I started making a large blanket that is coming along slowly, but I did have some problems with my right hand in between. I've been reading the blog Attic24 for a while. I always adored the colourful blankets and got inspired to make my own. They're lovely colours to look at, but not for my home as you could guess. Of course, I'm doing things my way.
I promised you last week, so here is the End of Other Times collection's official launch! I finally finished the latest pieces, two denim skirts and two vest tops (*cough* today). There are also two new pairs of leg warmers to complete the outfits. All these are not in the Etsy shop yet but will be by the end of tomorrow.
The fifth blog post of this month, I'm really sticking to my schedule again! I took a few days off work to make most of the bank holidays and get back to sewing products for the shop. There is also a market again in May, and I like to start preparing early. So, this is a preview of the designs that will be available soon.
Last week, I showed you how patches can add style to used clothing like the zebra skirt. Today, I have some outfit photos for you. It combines two second-hand pieces that are altered a bit to give a wicked goth outfit, which is still suitable for everyday wear.
We all know battle vests/jackets and crust pants, but if you like collecting patches as much as I do, you'll eventually run out of space - and jackets. There are so many other things that look great with patches, too. In this blog post, I have compiled 5 ideas were to put all the printed pieces of fabric with band names, logos, political messages or just decorative motifs.
Today, I'm presenting you the first pattern from Slightly Sinister Patterns (apart from the free Culotte Rowena) that I tested a short while ago: Mary (unpaid advertisement). Had a great plan for the swirl but not enough time, so I initially tested a basic black version that's not worth showing. There are two more patterns out by now. I hope to sew the Billie hoodie soon, and there is the brand new Alexis skirt.
What a month - short but insense! We're still in lockdown here in the UK, but I was busy preparing for my first Alternative Market of the year. It went well, and I also found some treats for myself. I updated the Etsy-shop with all new products created for the market - many different pieces in a range of sizes. I hope you like them as much as I do.
