Happy Sewing! My Christmas present to myself was a long awaited garden office. I actually ordered it in September, so it was an early Christmas present really! It didn’t arrive until November and it has taken ages to sort things out. The office had to be insulated as it was too cold to work, despiteContinue reading “New Sewing Room!”

Frida and me!
Since watching the 2002 film depicting the life of Frida Kahlo, by the fabulous Salma Hayek, I have been fascinated by the life and the art of this hugely iconic Mexican artist. Frida Kahlo is a world known iconic brand. A few months ago, I was searching the web for some Frida fabric and cameContinue reading “Frida and me!”
Bags of Star Wars!
Gosh, did I have fun this week with my Star Wars fabric quarters. I had been keeping them for a while as I was undecided what to make with them. Any fabric like this normally gets turned into a PE/kit bag! Then last week I decided upon turning them into carrier bag holders (so usefulContinue reading “Bags of Star Wars!”

My Cath Kidston fabric!
I saw this lovely fabric from Cath Kidston and fell in love with it! To the extent that I’ve gone mad making things to sell on my Etsy shop with it! I ordered the pale blue smudge spot and also the London toile. So far, the order of blue spot fabric has been diminishing byContinue reading “My Cath Kidston fabric!”
Mickey Mouse inspired
Last week I went to my local Hobbycraft for some supplies and saw a new fat quarter bundle of Mickey Mouse fabric. What fun! I decided to have a go at making a document wallet in the lovely Mickey Mouse fabric as well as some little wallets and purses. I will definitely need toContinue reading “Mickey Mouse inspired”
After the Christmas rush I started my sewing again when my son went back to school. Having had weeks of making Christmas decorations and Santa bags I felt like making something different! I had a look through all my Cath Kidston books for inspiration however couldn’t really find anything I fancied making. Out of theContinue reading “Sewing needlecases”
The Cambie Dress
I loved the look of this dress. It was inspired from the movie “La La Land” with Emma Stones’s gorgeous yellow dress. I had never previously followed a Sewaholic pattern and did some research before purchasing. There were lots of positive reviews and a step by step guide on the Sewaholic website which is aContinue reading “The Cambie Dress”
