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

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

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

Pink flamingos

It’s my birthday today, and so after loving my London Calling dress so much I decided to treat myself and make another dress. I bought this awesome navy fabric covered with little pink flamingos from Barry’s Fabrics in the week.

Merry Christmas!

I’m officially breaking up for the holidays today, although sadly there’ll be no Christmas party or swapping of secret Santas or anything. I do love being self-employed, but there are definitely a few things I miss about my previous life.

A blog award :-)

Oooh, an award. Of sorts. Unfortunately there’s no shiny trophy, or a glitzy evening out where I can cry my way through an acceptance speech, but there is this pretty picture: I guess it’s more of a blog hop really,

Blog Hop!

My first ever blog hop! Thank you to the lovely Meg who nominated me. I’ve read so many of these from people I’d consider to be “proper” sewing bloggers, so as sad as it is, I’m quite honoured! Why do

Blogs I love

I thought today I’d do a little round up of some sewing blogs that I love. Just because. Also I don’t have anything to show you at the moment, but when next week’s deadline has passed I will! So, without

Vintage patterns… again!

As you know, I recently managed to get my hands on all of my Grandma’s sewing patterns and there is quite a collection! After a quick nose through, they ended up in my parents’ spare bedroom as I have nowhere

A New Skirt!

Hey everyone, sorry for the long(ish) silence. I really had no idea how hard it would be to entertain two squishes throughout the summer holidays and still try to find any time to sew/blog. Plus it was Phoebe’s first birthday
