Rather than buying new bibs, making your own can be really quick and easy. It took me just over 2 hours to trace a pattern and make 14 bibs, I think it worked out as 10 minutes a bib. They are great stash busters and if you make a set and package them beautifully, aContinue reading “Baby bandana bibs”
One of the most fun things as a wedding industry professional is being involved in styled shoots. Most suppliers really enjoy them and relish the opportunity to get creative. I’ve been involved in various themed shoots (medieval, Club Tropicana, 1970’s Woodstock, sweetie seaside, etc) but one of my all time favourites was a colour popContinue reading “Bright colourful photoshoot – Tilly and Summer”
My customer had bought a lovely simple fishtail silhouette dress but she had always envisioned having a cape to compliment the look and give it a real vintage Hollywood feel. She came to me with some ideas. The front of her dress was plain so she wanted a dense lace to give it some interestContinue reading “Vintage Hollywood Glamour Inspired Cape”
I usually write about sewing but I love crocheting in front of the tv in the evening, I find it very relaxing and after completing this blanket I’m feeling quite smug about it so thought I’d share it with you. A while back a friend of mine was crocheting these beautiful squares, I was soContinue reading “Crocodile flower blanket”
As I mentioned in a previous post, this is one of my favourite baby patterns. Its really simple to put together and all experience levels can make it look good and people will be amazed that its homemade. I managed to teach this vest via zoom to a complete beginner. When I gift this babyContinue reading “Baby vest – Kwiksew 2433”
I’m sure by now everyone has a few face masks in their collection and some are favoured more than others. I’ve found I don’t like wearing the pleated ones I made in April last year and I can’t bear to wear the single use ones unless I have to (I hate waste) but I don’tContinue reading “Recycled fabric face mask”
As a beginner sewist, choosing a pattern to sew can be mind boggling. There are so many choices out there. I don’t think you can make a wrong choice as whatever you choose you will learn from but here’s a little guide to help you think about a good choice for you.
With the Beeb doing it’s usual and rolling out Cinderella over Christmas, I got the usual messages of awe and questions of making of the dress that follow from friends and family. This year though, my niece Amy understands a bit more of what her auntie does and suddenly I’m a very interesting and dareContinue reading “Cinderella – The Ball Dress”
I first tried this babygrow pattern a few years ago when I was pregnant with Leon. I think it’s a great pattern, a little short in the legs but I suspect my kids have gangly legs! I have now made it countless times and developed my own little edits to the neck and inside legContinue reading “Two Stitches – Grow babygrow”
I had a keepsake cuddly monkey made for Leon from his first baby clothes from Love Keep Create Ltd. While I really love it, I wish I’d spent the time and made it myself. So with Edith I was determined to make hers. After lengthy browsing of Etsy, I finally decided on this pattern byContinue reading “Patch pussycat”
