Inittoknitit is off to TOKYO!!!

Konichiwa! (hope I spelt that right!)

arrived in Japan today after what seemed like hours on a plane! :( Had to have my bag strip searched because I had a crocet hook in there which looked odd on the x-ray sreen thingy so that was fun :/ Its extremley interesting however the language is unreadable and didnt 'get far today as still trying to get bearings but tomorrow we are heading to the city centre :D Hopefully I will find something craft related or be able to get some good inspirational pictures there! keep you updated :)

I will leave you with this line from a menu from a pizza place, does anyone know what this means!!!??? : S

"Spaghetti with enough protit of nood bird and cabbage"

Talk soon and will upload pics when i get back home :0 bye

All this for £2.....

Hi everyone :)

My mum has recently been teaching me how to sew! Im currently making a dress I designed myself (ohhh how exciting I feel like im on project runway :D) I wanted a mannequin to make my dress on but they are vvvvveeerrrrrryyy expesive! I found a tutorial online which told you how to make your own. It was brilliant! all you needed was an old t shirt, newspaper, a coat hanger and duct tape. I bought 2 rolls of tape for £2 in my local pound shop so that was all it cost me to make the whole thing which I think is really cheap :0)
Heres how mine turned out:

Im really pleased with it. I used wrapping paper rolls to make a tripod so it is free standing :)
