To Face Mask, or Not To Face Mask – Is It Really A Question? Since this whole virus lark kicked off there has been much natter about ways to protect oneself and oft the topic of face masks crop up. So, I thought I’d put on my rational filter and go check some info out […]
Today I would like to share a tale of serendipity and chance that will be leading to a new series of blog posts, eventually.
It’s quite a long journey so you may like to grab a brew before you dive in.Read More »
So, in November last year, I stumbled across an awesome product that folks with electronic cutting machines, and perhaps others, are going to LOVE – especially if you want to make wallets or handbags.
I, therefore, set to work testing it with a simple project that I made in Canvas Workspace, cut on my Scan N Cut, hand stitched together and am pleased to be able to share those results …Read More »
Hi All :)
Sometime ago I gave you a rough overview on how to make a simple tote bag. Before this I was on TV promoting sewing machines and a booklet that I had created to show how to make five different handbag styles.
I have decided to offer up the digital print-at-home version of that booklet for sale via the shop for £2
Fabric Friday hasn’t been around for a while but I’m pleased to say that I’ve literally been doing nothing else but see for two days … progress at last!!
I therefore thought that it would be nice to remind you (and me) of projects that I need to finish and those that I am about to embark upon.Read More »
Hello and welcome to another Fabric Friday. This week I thought that I would try something different and see if anyone would like to take part in a sort of a sew-along with me.
I recently purchased a jelly roll and thought that I would create a simple foundation paper piecing pattern that we can all have a go at – and hopefully I will be able to share my finished piece, along side yours in a future Fabric Friday post.
So what is this? I’m talking of Winter as we are going through some of the hottest days of summer?!
Well, it’s not quite as mad as it seems.
Hello again, and welcome to another Fabric Friday! :)
Now, you were probably expecting me to be showing you the finished project from last week’s post however, on time honoured tradition, I appear to have been distracted by another technique, lol!
This week I have been having another go with foundation paper piecing.Read More »
After completing the recent run of Fabric Friday Fat Quarter Fun blog posts I left you with a picture of some of the leftover fabrics.
This week, instead of buying more fabric, I decided to give a new project a go using that leftover stash.
In a couple of previous posts I have been detailing a few projects that I started using some pretty Fat Quarters that I had picked up at the local market.
I am pleased to say that I have most of the things now finished (but not in the way that I had expected).
Last week I highlighted a few projects that I started using some pretty Fat Quarters that I had picked up at the local market.
My intention was that I would have all of the projects finished this week and that this post would show the triumphant results!
What was meant to be a quiet week has turned into a doozy, and on top of that my head has been particularly random when it comes to making things.
That has meant that this week’s Fabric Friday will therefore be more like Part 1 of a 2 Part special as I didn’t get a single thing finished! :)
***The Draw Is Now Closed***
Just a quickie as I’ve not had time to make a tutorial this week however given the response to the tote bag tutorial the other week I have decided to do a little blog candy giveaway type draw to win the two bags that I made in the tutorial.
