My Creative Space

I have been working on a few things this week, done a little bit of bag making, cross stitching and i finished a dress that i have been making for quite some time now, ran into a few problems with it so had to make some adjustments.

Here is the final product of the dress that i have been working on, it has taken me a while to make i had to go back and make some adjustments to the dress because i am not a very tall person i found the midriff section was too long therefore the dress did not fit properly as it was not in proportion to the rest of my figure. After making these adjustments i finally managed to get the buttons and the final touches done on it last weekend.

I have also recently got into doing some bag making and have discovered that i actually really enjoy it and plan to do some more of it. Here is the final product of my first ever bag, not bad for a first attempt, i think it worked out quite while. Had a few problems putting the gussetts in but now know how to do them for next time.

In the rest of my spare time i also love to do crosstitching and needlework, at the moment i am working on a cat cross stitch and will have photos up of that as i progress through it some more.


  1. What a great dress, I'm sure you are going to get lots of wear out of it. The colours are just beautiful.

  2. the dress fabric is beautiful!
    I need a new bag - maybe I should make one too!
