Cats & Destruction

 It’s been a while since I’ve shared any of my sewing projects. But lately inspiration has found it’s way back to me and my sewing machine is gonna have to face it and work it’s ass off. Recently I made this gray oversized sweater and I thought that I could give it a little more life. I bought some acrylics and decided to go for a cute cat face as my first try at hand painting fabric. Previously I’ve only dyed sneakers with acrylics and they turned out pretty good, so I decided to give it a try, I hope you like it!

Writer's block

I’ve been gone, I’ve been lost. I haven’t given my all to this blog, but it seemed like I had lost some creative gene in my body. And I don’t want that to happen again, so this post is like a promise, like a reminder to myself to keep going. During this dark time of mine, I had a lot of second thoughts about this blog and blogging in general. But finally I realised, that I have been doing this since I was sixteen and it’s made me the person I am today. And I don’t feel like giving that part of myself away. And while I did some thinking, I realised where I got lost. It was when I started running for followers and blog stats and everything that comes with it.  So I’ve changed things. I finally changed my blogging platform and simplified everything quite a bit. And I don’t care how many people will read this, all I care about is that posting this makes me happier. And that’s exactly what I’ve missed.
