Lost boys themed photoshoot

Do you ever look at photos on social media and wonder about the stories behind them?  
Cathie and Cindy from Sew Darn Ezy pulled together the most amazing “Lost Boys from Peter Pan” photoshoot for their One Thimble Issue 14 sews.  
Every time they shared an image a little more of the story came together.  I was so pleased when Cathie agreed to share a run down of this shoot!  Read on and be inspired by their story.

Behind the scenes One Thimble Issue 13

A little behind the scenes look at One Thimble Issue 13 …

There comes a time in every sewing Mum’s life when you have a conversation with your kid that goes something like this …

Kid: *sigh* I wish I had my style of clothes?
Mum: What is your style?
Kid: Store brought
Mum:  No problem.  We can go check out the shops, see what’s in fashion, and then I’ll find some patterns to sew you up some new clothes.
Kid: *rolling eyes* No. Store brought.  As in, go to the store and buy the clothes.  Like all the other kids.
Mum: *deflated*

I had this conversation with Kt a few years ago and feared my days of sewing for her were over.  But then a few days later she was asking me to sew a Bonfire Jacket for one of her friends birthdays.  We’ve reached an arrangement whereby I can sew for her (& her friends – who are far more into my sewing than she is) … but only if what I’m sewing, passes her fashion radar!

When she introduced me to the Pop Asia music show on SBS back in 2015 I felt like I’d hit the jackpot.  So much colour! So many fun shapes! So much clashy goodness! So much inspo for Issue 13.
