Sewing plans

I have finally pulled some patterns from my stash that really NEED to be made. Some I’ve had for over a year! I went on some crazy pattern buying sprees last year, some in paper format but many many more in downloadable form, which is kinda worse as I don’t even have them sitting there […]

Kids Clothes Week

Amazing timing. The same week we had children’s clothes making on the Great British Sewing Bee I’ve seen the next Kids Clothes Week advertised here. This a wonderful twice yearly online event with lots of pattern designers and bloggers showing off their funky new togs for kiddies. Of course we don’t quite have the fabric […]

indigo quilt

I’ve been working on this quilt for a long time. Sadly as I was nearing completion I washed it and something ran really badly. Which was odd because all the fabric had been pre-washed. It near destroyed the quilt and eventually I decided to separate the quilt front and the back and take out the […]
