Hello September!

I love September. There’s a real sense of it being a brand new start, a time to achieve stuff, a reboot of the year. I guess that’s the teacher in me, I always loved the start of the year with

Plotting some selfish sewing

The problem with deciding to turn a hobby into a business is that you don’t have as much time for whatever you do as a hobby anymore. Most nights, once the girls are asleep, if there’s sewing (or screen-printing) to

Girl Power!

You’d be forgiven for thinking that this post has something to do with the Spice Girls given the title, but rest assured it’s not. To be honest, I was never a fan (unlike my brother, who would never admit it

Screen-printing, sewing and a birthday

Hello! It’s been such a busy couple of weeks here, including my big squish’s 4th birthday, which was a decidedly My Little Pony-themed affair. Totally off topic, but how cool is this pony we had made for her? Of course

Me-Made-May… No Thanks.

Unless you live under a rock, or at least if you’re not on social media, you can’t have failed to notice that it’s “Me-Made-May”. Call me a party pooper, but I just don’t see the point. (If you want to

Cotton Couture at Manchester Art Gallery

Over the Easter holidays we decided to have a day trip to Manchester. I used to live there (for about a year after university) and I love the place. We popped into Manchester Art Gallery and coincidentally they had a

Insert terrible sewing pun here…

I’m not a fan of everything with a sewing theme, despite what people might think, but thankfully I haven’t been bought a massive amount of sewing-themed paraphernalia. However, I couldn’t resist this fabric and thought it’d make a pretty cool

Free pattern!

Do you remember the London Calling dress I made for my birthday? I used the Ruby pattern which was free with Love Sewing last year and I had a few people ask me where they could get it from. The

Hello March!

Spring is almost here, and I don’t know about you, but I feel like my mood has been lifted already. I really struggle to motivate myself throughout the winter. I’ve got lots planned for March though and, I’m really loving

Sewing lingerie

Sewing your own lingerie seems to be a big thing at the moment, with lots of sewers making their own bras particularly. I’ve got to say, I didn’t have any interest in seeing my own undies, but then when the
