Sewing Weekender Update Finished Makes & Photo Twin Fun

What a weekend we all had! The first day was all about doing your own sewing projects and we were paired up to share a Janome sewing machine. I had the delightful Ana from Cocowawa as my sewing buddy.

I wanted to sew with fabric that I had never sewn before and pre cut  a silk top and a scuba top. The main reason for chosen these fabrics, was that my sewing machine, an Elna 7000 (that was my Mothers) is really on its last legs and it hates sewing jersey and silk. The Janome sewing machine coped very well with both fabrics.

When Gabby showed me this photo from Chinelos book I was couldn’t believe it! It was as if Megan and Gabby had found their photo twins, so of course I had to try and recreate the shoot.
