Sarah’s been doing some online shopping recently, and it looks like her parcels have just arrived!
(Side note: I love these! I made them specially for this post, and they look so good! I kinda want to make some boxes, and maybe another envelope.)
Inside the poster tube is this lovely poster by Alice Oseman, which is art of one of her books, Radio Silence.
It looks so good above the dining table, Sarah!
In the envelope are the stickers Sarah ordered for her laptop to brighten it up a little.
The laptop’s definitely brightened! I think my favourite sticker is the Doctor Who one in the bottom right, though Sarah’s is the Lunar Chronicles one in the bottom left. She also has a Captain Marvel design in the top right and the Legend symbol in the top left, from the series of books by Marie Lu.
Do you shop online often? What’s your favourite thing you’ve bought?
I made this long-legged jumpsuit a while ago, as I wanted to try making a winter one-piece for Sarah, but I didn’t think the long legs were quite right.
So recently, I chopped off the legs to make it a summer piece.
I also added lace at the bottom, which is an idea I’ve had for a while and which works really well!
Sarah loves it, especially with the lace at the bottom.
If I’m being really picky, I’d probably take the shorts up a little more, so the lace sits above the knee. Otherwise, I really like it, especially the darts in the torso. When I make another, I might try putting pockets in…
I’m making good progress on the TARDIS floor, it’s gone from these black and brown outlines….
…to this (rather dramatic) black and brown pattern….
…to a little bit of yellow….
…to a LOT of yellow! All it needs now is some white lines to connect the yellow areas (and break them up a little), and a border to keep the walls from moving and make a clean edge. I’m thinking of adding some orange drybrushing to the yellow areas for a bit more depth, but I don’t know if I want to risk it! What do you think?
