Sewing for the tropics!

Hi there! So it's been a quiet month on the blog but I've actually done quite a bit of sewing. A lot of it has been social sewing, which I intend to blog about separately, but I wanted to blog this particular pattern before the Sew Together For Summer deadline passed. Tomorrow (!)

Thoughts on Me Made May

So, Me Made May is over for another year. Did you take part? Or did you just browse the #memademay2019 on Instagram and find lots and lots of inspiration? Me Made May is my favourite challenge of the year as it has been the one which has really helped me tailor what I make to... Continue Reading →

For some unknown reason, I'm writing this blog at some ungodly hour on a school night. Well, a work night, anyway, no school this week! But the urge to blog has not been strong of late so I'm going with it! If you follow me on Instagram, you may have gathered that we have been... Continue Reading →

#GBSBSewalong sustainability

If you'd asked me which of the weekly sewalongs Sewisfaction are running to coincide with the Great British Sewing Bee season 5, I'd have said that sustainability week held the least appeal for me. I see the value in reusing textiles wherever possible, but a combination of not really wanting to wear patchwork clothing and... Continue Reading →
