Check out ex-lawyer Jaime Beattie’s online store for some fabbo purses and accessories. These bold and bright pieces are handmade in limited quantities from a studio based in Brisvegas. Her career as a accessories designer has really taken off due to the popularity of her eye catching range and she has never gone back to being a lawyer. That’s so cool!
Oh! Thanks for the mention!
I am SO excited about all of your taorriuls. I just got my sewing machine last week (I'm a beginner you've inspired me!) and I have already done a hooded towel for my big baby and after this tutorial I think I may just do my own shower curtain instead of hiring someone to make it for me! Going to go do a sample buttonhole now! Reply:March 28th, 2012 at 8:52 amawesome!Kelly Reply:June 26th, 2012 at 7:40 amAlright on to the shower curtain. I have the whole thing done except the buttonholes. I have been practicing buttonholes all morning, but I am having trouble. My practice holes on my folded thin cotton fabric is coming out fine, but when I practice on scraps of my actual fabric, my top thread keeps breaking. The fabric I am using is 55% linen & 45% rayon. (It's the beautiful Robert Allen Khanjali Glacier I planned a whole bathroom around it!) I am using Premium Sulky 40 wt. rayon thread. I've tried the buttonholes using 3, 4, & 5 tension. I don't know what to do! Any ideas?!Kelly Reply:June 26th, 2012 at 9:03 pmNevermind! I did it! I cleaned my machine, completely re-threaded it, and used a new needle. (After hours of researching what to do ) Voila! A shower curtain! Now I can go to bed
