My Top Sewing Tools

We all have our favourite sewing tool, don’t we? Something you just can’t imagine sitting down to start a project without. Here’s a little round up of my favourites, along with the link to my amazon storefront where you can buy most of this (along with lots of other goodies!). If there is anything not [...]

Make It Simple Review Part 1

When Tilly and the Buttons first announced her new book I still hadn’t made my first Indigo dress so I wasn’t first to join the preorder list. But once I it (and the second) I preordered it straight away! The instructions for the Indigo dress were so clear and easy to follow so I was [...]

Make Nine 2019- a review

I wrote a blog post back during the summer to access how I was getting on with my “make nine” plans. To finish off the year... I haven’t got much further 😣 I had finished my Rumana coat and self drafted dress and had 4 other projects “in progress”. They are still in progress to [...]

A year of Me-Mades ❤️

Today marks my 2 year Instagram birthday! Two years ago I was heavily pregnant with Emily, about to celebrate my 30th Birthday. I had been making baby leggings and matching bibs and knew I would need something creative to occupy me while on maternity leave. I decided an Instagram business account was the way to [...]

June Makes

At the beginning of June I had very little time for personal sewing and wasn't expecting to get a lot done this month. So I kicked off the month with a super quick and easy make- another Ruska T-Shirt from Breaking the Pattern by Named Clothing. This is one of my favourite patterns and is [...]

May Makes Part 2

Next up on my stash busting quest was this gorgeous yellow floral crepe. I had my eye on this fabric for so long, but I have always had this idea that yellow didn't "suit me". After it was reduced to half price I couldn't justify not buying it! First up was a mash up of [...]
