Finished skirt!

Not too sure about the colour of the thread I used on the hem, but overall I'm pretty happy. First item of clothing I've made since Textiles in highschool!

A crafty afternoon...

After seeing Lilli from whip up a simple circle skirt the other day, I decided that I wanted to make one too. I have also been eying off an American Apparel skirt one for a while now, but I thought it looked simple enough that I should be able to make my own.

I did a bit more of a search on the Interwebs and came across this tutorial post by Freshly Picked. I love that this skirt has pockets. Yay for pockets! The one I'm making also has an elastic waist band like in the tutorial. I'll be making it a bit shorter that the tutorial one too.

So this afternoon I have been sewing up a small storm. Haven't finished yet, but it seems to be going well.

I'm planning out some kind of itinerary for our trip at the end of March. I'm thinking...

2 days in KL (27th - 28th)
1-2 days in the Cameron Highlands (29th -30th)
2 days in Penang (31st - 1st)
3 days in Langkawi (2nd - 4th)
3 day in Koh Lipe, Thailand (5th - 7th)
Back to KL (8th)
Singapore (9th - 10th)
Home (on the night of the 10th)

I have NO idea if it will work. We haven't got anything booked except for our first night in KL. I'm getting really excited now.

It's finished! Finally...

So a month and a half after I began my remote control holder for the couch, I have finally finished it. It was only a few weeks back that my machine was actually fixed and ready to be picked up, and since then I've been so busy/exhausted from being back at school I hadn't finished it off.

Well today was the day and here is my finished product.
