It’s been a while since I have completed a sewing project. It’s been a bit of a battle sitting down in front of the sewing machine too long with my reach getting further and further from me because of my ‘Buddha’ belly. I can’t keep away from my ‘sewing-sister’ too long though, otherwise I get the sewer’s ‘Itch’.

So…right now I am going through a headband phase. I don’t usually wear headbands, but I love the thought of having a few different patterned ones for when baby arrives.

One particular reason, my hair has grown at legendary speeds due to the pregnancy growth hormone. Plus I had a big chunk of hair snipped off last November in Malaysia and I have noticed it has grown 5 inches longer in the past 8 months. It’s become thick and unruly, but definitely healthy and shinier.

I came across this tutorial by sayyestohoboken.com, it is such an inspiring little blog run by stylishly crafty blogger, Liz Stanley. Thanks Liz!

Here is how my headband turned out. I am going to make a matching one for my friend, who is having a birthday soon. This is a perfect present idea for a girlfriend.

I’m slowly getting my sewing mojo back. It has been a busy couple of weeks with mummy duties and I started my studies in Cert 3 Education Support which I am completing via correspondence. So during my down time I love to get creative, it helps me relax and even prepares my brain for all the essay writing I have to do. 

So I ended up making a toilet roll holder for the most common room in the house. It is made of white polka dot aqua blue cotton duck material. I just measured the strips of fabric with the size of the toilet rolls and made a small loop on the top to hook onto the rail.
