Hi There

Just a brief post to tell you all that we have combined our blog with our website - you can find them both here

We have just posted a couple of Beginner's guides to buying a sewing machine and sewing threads.

Hope to see you soon xxx

Saturday Social - Circle Skirts MADE easy

Happy Saturday!!!

Today's Saturday Social project is a great photo focused tutorial for circle skirts from MADE. I'm planning to make a few of these with some of our fabulous floral chintz. This tutorial even has a link for tips on dyeing your waist band elastic - cool.

The Saturday Social - Home Sweet Home

Today's Saturday Social tutorial is by London Mummy. This super cute house would make a lovely house warming present. 

I love the monochrome house - but if fancy a bit of colour - how's this for inspiration...

Happy sewing.

The Saturday Social - Laptop Bag

Hope you are all having a fun weekend. Today's Saturday Social (our favourite sewing tutorial from the world wide web) comes from The Mother Huddle. This custom fit laptop bag tutorial is full to the brim of clear, beautiful photos. I am choosing my co-ordinating fabrics for this tutorial right now. Enjoy!

Saturday Social - The Frog Chorus...

Bom, Bom, Bom, Byeee-yeee-i (as Paul McCarthy might say/sing)

This week's Saturday social is a fun and fast project from The Purl Bee. I love these beany frogs and they are just the thing for using up those out of date lentils that had been at the back of the cupboard since 1994 (or is it just me that applies to?). Great instructions for these little guys and a printable template - what could be easier?

So cute!

Here is one I made from this tutorial...

Have a great weekend :)

Saturday Social - Pretty Storage

Today's Saturday Social Sewing Project is from Obsessively Stitching. These wonderful fabric storage boxes could be the answer to all your fabric stash storage problems - You are after all using some of your stash to make them, and then you can tidy the rest of your stash away in them - result! The tutorial comes in two easy to follow parts, part 1 is here and part 2 here. Happy sewing.
