DIY: Mothers Day Pillow

As you all know I didn't take the final picture of my mothers day pillow until now here you go I hope you like it and remember it is my first ever one.


My Stash...!


 
Over the process of moving I have lost a few things in my stash of fabric so when I was out spending some time with my beautiful mother we found a great shop with a huge sale on and she bought me this suitcase it was £10 reduced to £5.
It is made out of very strong cardboard but can hold and carry like a real suitcase I have put all my fabric and other bits in it.
 
How cool does it look?
Do you have a stash?

BOOK: City of bones by Cassandra Clare

Omg... I love this book I really did, now I have always made a point of staying away from shitty teenager romances after the disastrous Twilight but I watched the film with my friends and really enjoyed that also
So what came next had to be the books I have spent the past tow night staying up till early hours of the morning reading they caught me that bad.
 
 
The book is very different from the film which is always a bad thing in the book she has the characters and whiney teenagers which I found a bit shitty but it was still a good read.

DIY: Yellow Skirt (post one)

What you need:
 1 meter of fabric (I choose yellow)
needle
thread (same colour as your fabric)
black lace (to decorate)
pins
 
How to:
1: Make two semi circles in the fabric, one slightly shorter than the other.
2: Use a mannequin if you have one. 
3: Place the fabric on the mannequin and arrange how you want the dress to look pin it all together inside out.
4: When you are happy with it sew it all together.

Now that is the easy way, trust me when I say there's nothing easy about this for mine I added black lace to the front it was a bit short for me (I have to protect my nether regions id cause a scandal) and also I placed bias tape around the edges to give it more structure.

BOOK - The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield

 
The Thirteenth Tale by Dianne Setterfield
 
***** 5 Star rating
 
This book kept me up till 4 in the morning.
The twist and turns are in credible and I never once saw that ending coming.
I loved it when she was describing her bookshop and books in general it felt like you could of really been there.
She is very powerful with her words and describes things perfectly.
Amazing book. Recommended to everyone.
