Winning at lounging!

Hi there! I'm very excited today to be joining the blogger book launch tour for Wendy Ward's new book, A Beginner's Guide to Sewing with Knitted Fabrics.  My review of the book is live on the Minerva Crafts blog now. Whilst I was provided with a copy of the book and a contribution towards the... Continue Reading →

Looking back at January

Hi there! I thought it might be interesting to start doing a monthly round up post on the blog.  There are two main reasons for this; firstly, I'm getting to the point where I don't blog absolutely everything I make.  This has been the case for a while now, but I find I'd quite like...

Subtle sleepwear

Hi there! Today is reveal day for month one of the #sewmystyle2018 challenge and I have indeed managed to make the stated garment this month. I need to apologise for not having many photos; this is purely because I intended to take them today and then have spent nearly all day in bed with a... Continue Reading →

Fourth time’s a charm?

Hi there! Another blog post after much radio silence? That is indeed the case.  What's more, it's another jumpsuit (who am I these days, anyway?!) Today sees the publication of my latest Minerva Crafts Blogger Network make. And I chose to do my fourth version of the Closet Case Files "Sallie" jumpsuit. I know, same... Continue Reading →

The loudest cover up in the world!

OK folks, sorry about the slight blog lull there, we got back from holiday at 3am on Sunday morning, thus totally negating all relaxing vibes from the break and I've been functioning on auto pilot ever since! I've also been sewing like a mad thing, but on a project I can't share with you just... Continue Reading →

In tribute to Shauni

Hi all! So this post continues with my holiday makes but it's one that is a country mile outside of my normal comfort zone and I love it! You may have seen my post for the Sewcialists blog last month, telling you all about Tribute Month, which challenges you to make something inspired by (or... Continue Reading →

Summer means Carrie!

I don't know about you, but there are certain patterns that I want to make as soon as the sun starts coming out. I'm all about the fickle flitting from one new shiny thing to another, but there's a base layer of predictably under that. One of my favourite things to wear last summer were... Continue Reading →

Flowery pants!

Hi there! Today, my latest post for the Minerva Crafts Blogger Network goes live.  This month I chose to make the Sew Over It Ultimate Trousers (again - they were a very early make for me but it's fair to say they went rather better this time around!) I used the online course to make... Continue Reading →
