Gallery :: Pebble Wash Bag

Have you been tempted to try out my Pebble Wash Bag pattern, but can’t decide which fabric to choose?

I thought I would share with you some Pebble Wash Bag pictures in a gallery for your inspiration. Some of the pictures are my own makes, some are from the fabulous ladies that took part in the testing process and some are from my lovely customers!

As you can see the Pebble Wash bag is great for men or women alike and looks great made in a bright print, tweed or leather (faux or real!)

I hope that these pictures have given you some inspiration!

Feature :: Girls’ Skater Skort (Culottes) for Love Sewing issue 26

Have you got an active little girl in your life? I seem to have two! Both of our girls love the outdoors and it makes me so happy when the weather is warm and sunny and they are racing around the garden.

My girls are girly girls in that they like to wear something pretty and preferably something with a bit of twirl. Problem is though that girly is not always that practical….particularly when they want to run, jump and climb.

This is where my Skater Skort pattern is just perfect. It’s a pair of culottes based on the style lines of a full skirt.

Skater Skort Culottes

The pattern that is included with issue 26 of Love Sewing is for an age 7 girl. As my Skater Skort has been designed with an elasticated gathered waist it can easily be adjusted to fit a slightly younger or older girl.

Download the pattern pieces from Love Sewing Issue 26 from the Love Sewing Mag website.

As usual if you have any issues with making up the pattern then let me know!

Feature :: Love Sewing Issue 19 Royal Cape

Issue 19 of Love Sewing has just hit the shelves and I’m so excited to see that my project has made the front cover!

I have designed a cape that’s perfect for little ones that love to dress up like royalty!

Love Sewing Issue 19 Royal Cape Feature Photo

Rather co-incidentally I made the samples for the shoot in colours favoured by a couple of Frozen sisters! No complaints from my two on that front.

Don’t you think though, that it would also look great in a purple or a dark green? Ooooh, or even one in black…perfect for a spooky mysterious witch! If you make one in a different colour, let me know as I’d love to see it!

Royal Cape - Shorter LengthI’ve drafted the pattern in two different lengths. The shorter one is on Emily who is 4 and the longer one is on Charlotte who was 6 at the time of the photo shoot.

Royal Cape - longer lengthThe thing my girls love the most if of course the twirl factor…..

New: Halloween Felt Finger Puppet Sewing Pattern

Boo!

Do you celebrate Halloween in your household? Here in the UK Halloween has always been quite a small event on the calendar, but it does seem to be getting bigger and bigger every year. Just this morning the supermarket had Halloween cookies for sale in the Bakery department! We had a little party last year with bobbing for apples, apple skittles and eating sugar doughnuts hanging from a string. This year there has already been talk already of Halloween parties and events. The girls love any excuse to dress in a fancy outfit so I’d better get my thinking cap on!

Anyhow, I have added to my range of felt finger puppet patterns with this not so scary set of Halloween Friends…

This Halloween Friends Sewing Pattern has patterns and instructions to make all five of the friends…a Bat, a Witch, a Pumpkin, a Skeleton and a Ghost

This group of Halloween Friends can be made with small pieces of felt and are constructed using some basic hand sewing. There is no glue required and no need for a sewing machine so they can easily be made by a confident youngster or an adult

As with all of my sewing patterns, included is a list of all the materials you will need and it features nice and clear digitally drawn pattern pieces to illustrate the step-by-step illustrated instructions.

The pdf pattern for the Halloween Friends Finger Puppets is available as a digital download from the following places….

If you have hoards of supplies stashed away somewhere secret in the house so your other half doesn’t quite understand the extent of your addiction, or you’re just plain hiding it from the children, then you can of course buy a downloadable version of the pattern instead: see Craftsy or Etsy for listings
