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.

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

Love At First Stitch

It seems like ages since I blogged or even had a good few hours of uninterrupted sewing time. OK, so it’s been about two weeks, but it seems like longer. I’ve been having all sorts of ideas of things I’d

My Handmade Wardrobe… the challenge is set!

I love making children’s clothes, obviously, but I’ve always shied away from making anything for myself. I don’t know why, but somehow it just seems more complicated. However, I have recently become very taken with the idea of having at

Love Sewing magazine review

I think I’m developing a bit of an addiction to sewing-related magazines recently. I subscribed to Sew Magazine in February, mostly because the free gift was the new Great British Sewing Bee book. Then I took out a trial subscription
