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.

Making clothes for my kids is one of my favourite things, such a shame I can’t make money from it! The feeling of accomplishment I get from seeing them wear my work and having all my friends and family admire the clothes, I will admit gives me such a great feeling. The question I’m askedContinue reading “My favourite kids patterns for beginners”
