Make do and mend

19 Jul

Look what I found in the centrefold of the July/August frankie magazine – a “Make do and mend” poster by Clare Owen (Check out more of her beautiful illustrations on her site). This will have to go on the wall beside my sewing (ahem… dining) table.

I’ve had two great magazines to pour over this week. The Australian frankie has some cute articles.

How to make musk sticks.

Handkerchief collection.

Vintage storybook coasters.

The other magazine came in the parcel from Mum and Dad. It is the UK produced Selvedge. It has a art/sewing/craft focus. Here’s some that caught my eye.

Jane Austen’s needlework.

How to make pillows from print fabric.

Wisdom for new graduates. (I am not a graduate of any kind… I just like the embroidery).

P.s. Here’s how I ended up wearing the blouse to work today.
