Great instructions, really clear and easy to follow. Thank you, I can't wait to get to my machine and make some.
All my own work
I learnt to sew when I was very young as my mother and both grandmothers liked to 'make do and mend' in the most beautiful way of course and they showed me how. I love to sew, knit, applique, patchwork, quilt and will turn my hand to anything crafty! I have even been known to try tiling, upholstery and I love gardening and DIY too.
When I kept getting asked 'how did you make that' I decided to have a go at writing some sewing guides to share my ideas and methods with Etsy buyers. I keep the style very simple for beginners and add as many photographs as I can to make them easy to follow. I love to use bright, bold funky fabrics as well as soft vintage pastel cottons.
Now that Etsy makes it possible to instantly download the PDF when placing your order you don't have to wait for it to arrive, you can order, pay, click and then sew!!
My simple makes have been featured in many magazines such as Mollie Makes, Sewing World and Lets get Crafting and I have made an exclusive felt design for the Mollie Makes Christmas Book.
I will be listing my handmade items as well as my sewing patterns and tutorials.
I am thrilled that buyers seem to like my conversational style of writing and I love to share my methods. Etsy is a great community to be a part of.
