Aaand I'm Back (with a backpack)

Well, it's been a while.

For the last week, I've been sick with a fantastically timed (not sure if I'm being sarcastic or not, it's inconvenient but I am healthy before my assignments are due) cold, but last Friday I was glued to my TV set during the middle of the day.  Due to this.  So any form of crafting that I intended to do went straight out the window as I sat on my couch watching the news and live-Facebooking (is that a thing?) a friend of mine who was in the city as it unfolded.

Which brings me (unintentionally) nicely to today's craft.  Please also excuse the photos, this is my phone camera because I lent my camera to my boyfriend (conveniently) two weeks ago and haven't gotten it back yet...

The backpack!

My old uni bag has been in use for a good long while now, and it was about to break.  So I finally busted out this number (yes.  It has numbers on it, that's the text) fabric I got from Ikea months ago, decided I wanted a backpack (seriously, they're everywhere at uni right now) and made myself a backpack.

The insides!

It's cute!  Now I really need to finish this essay before I go to bed...  Hence the epically short post today, haha.

Actually see you Friday!

PS: I used a Butterick pattern in B4147, I made D!

Pattern: No Navi!

It's been a while...  Life's been pretty hectic around here, finally 3/4 way through my prac, so hopefully I can get more pattern making / stitching sometime...  For now, here's a small pattern inspired by this demotivational poster:

23 before 23: 6 month update!

Back in August I posted about 23 things that I wanted to achieve before I hit 23 next year (read about it here). Since we're at the 6 month mark, I thought an update was in store!

Writing this post and reading over my list I'm realising how much I've got to achieve - school holidays now, time to get busy! So far I've achieved...

12. Spend a day at the beach
Check! Was a gorgeous day and both myself and my boyfriend came back without being completely roasted. Considering how pale we both are, that was a surprise.

19. Find a signature makeup look
It only occurred to me the other day that I'd done this - I <3 my winged liner and bright lip.

20. Read 2 "classic" novels
Done and done!
Clearly I've gotten lazy with my book reviewing, haha. I've since read The Great Gatsby, Little Women and am currently marathoning my way through Anna Karenina.

I've noticed it just seems like I'm not a Jane Austen fan but have enjoyed all of the others that I've re…

Pichu Cross Stitch

My first cross stitch creation, created with KG-Chart LE.  It's a Pichu (from Pokemon), and I'm hoping to continue with this Pokemon theme through other cross stitches.  If I get around to this, I'll post a picture when I'm done =)
