Me Made May 2021

I can’t believe I will be taking part in my third Me Made May this year! I have enjoyed taking part the last 2 years and feel like I want to try a new challenge this year. I have a blog posts rounding up my experience in 2020 and 2019. This year I am going [...]

My Wardrobe Hero’s

The concept of a ‘Wardrobe Hero’ or Key Piece in your wardrobe is that it is something that works for you. They are the pieces in your wardrobe that you pull out over and over again. These pieces are different for everyone. I’m going to share mine with you today and maybe you will discover [...]

Fibre Mood Maya- Link Party 18

Issue 14 of Fibre Mood is out today and I was lucky to be part of the Link Party. I got a sneak peak of the new patterns and got to choose one to make. When I saw the sleeves of the Maya dress I knew this was the one! Big volume and interesting details [...]

Spring ‘21 Sewing Plans

Last year when the pandemic first hit, i went through my stash and made plans for my Spring Summer sewing that was going to help me make a dent in it. I loved this method of planning and have kept it up since. This year my plans are going to look a little different. Last [...]

Serra Trench

An item that I have wanted to make since I started sewing my own wardrobe was a classic trench coat.

Tamarack Jacket

My friend Rebekah (@sowno65 on Instagram) and I recently decided that we would like to do a “One Pattern Two Ways” project together. It didn’t take long for us both to realise that we wanted to make a Tamarack Jacket, and I think this was just the motivation that I needed or I never would [...]

2020- A Review

I will be honest with you all, I have been struggling to look back over this year and ‘review’ it. At the end of 2019 I left my secure job in retail to focus on my kids and build my sewing lessons business. I know everyone is in the same boat and this year hasn’t [...]
