Feature :: Pyramid Beanbag, Sew Now issue 6

Sew Now magazine issue 6 features my Pyramid Bean Bag sewing pattern. Perfect for lounging around at weekends (or secretly during the week!)

Pyramid Beanbag for Sew Now magazine

It’s a super simple make. All you need is a large piece of home dec weight fabric, a super long zip and of course lots of beans!

Any home dec weight fabric will do, but how about making it from a more durable/water resistant fabric and make a beanbag for the garden….can you tell I’m hoping for a glorious summer?

You can pick up a copy of Sew Now magazine in your local newsagent, or from the More Mags website

Feature :: Framed Evening Clutch for Sew Now

Have you checked out the new sewing magazine, Sew Now? It’s a new title from Practical Publishing focusing on fashion led projects.

I’m so pleased so say that Issue 2 features my first project for Sew Now. I have made an evening clutch that uses a slide in metal frame.

It’s the perfect bag for a night out. It’s big enough for your mobile phone, lippy and some cash. There’s even instructions for a little slip pocket to keep your card.

The fabric I used was from Adam Ross, they make gorgeous premium dressmaking fabrics. I used their Jade Lustre Fine Line Fabric which has a lovely texture and sheen to it.

They also sell it in a rather lovely Indigo and a similar looking fabric in Gold

If I had more time on my hands (and more places to go of an evening) I would be making a load of these bags, those colours are just so lovely!

If you can’t find a copy of Sew Now in a local store yet then have a look at the More Mags website
