Welcome to the new rubric of cOOking TiKi There isn’t any connection with my cooking, but it’s another hobby that inspires me and takes a lot of my passion and free time. As I have made a good amount of handiworks, I decided to share them with you. And if I can inspire you to create something based on my models, I’d be more than happy! To do this, you only need a sewing machine, a few pieces of fabric and lots of enthusiasm. It is not even necessary to have a sophisticated machine with many options, I use two basic stitches – straight and zigzag.
Since I have no professional training in sewing, my technique and my explanations may not come up to the scratch sometimes, but this is how it worked to me.
There is a good amount of years (I was about 14), my mom taught me the basics of serious sewing (as purses and clothes for my dolls, I started making since the age of 8-9), i.e. how to use the patterns in the Burda magazine, how to operate the sewing machine, how to proceed with the puzzle of pieces making a garment, etc. Subsequently, her machine paid for that, for my imagination knew no limits and I constantly invented things to make it sew. And when the Burda could not offer me a professional pattern that married my idea, I used to draw one myself. Sometimes, when it came to clothings, the result was hanging oddly here and there, but that didn’t prevent me to wear it proudly
