BZF!

This blog post is a bit late but a reminder that tomorrow (well, today- in 9 hours or so) I'll be at Birmingham Zine festival! Birmingham's very first zine and small press festival!

Look at the amazing poster by James Nash-

The event is sponsored by The Brothers McLeod who will be showing animations all day and there will also be acoustic music by Simon Fox, Winston Echo and Bom and his Magic Drumstick! There will also be T shirt printing, zine making, starting your own event and drop in and draw workshops! And goodie bags for the first 100 people!

I got a new sewing machine this week and made bunting for the event-

The colour selection^ I got Pistachio -

My first sewing on the machine! (yep this blog post is fascinating huh!)

And the amateur bunting (looking rather creased hm)

Anyway, this means I can sew some more of the sold out Hairy Midget Elf toys and maybe some other characters!

See you tomorrow!

Ooo I've been wondering about getting one of those sewing machines for a while. Perfect for travelling around? What do you think of it? Worth me buying a second machine?

It is great! I have two full size machines but find them both too heavy to use- they take up a lot of room and I find the settings troublesome. This is very easy to use, perfect for quick small things and looks nice! only hard bit is choosing which colour to get as they are all nice. in conclusion- yes get one!
