Got it immediately, looks like a fun easy to follow pattern, but have not made it yet. 😳

Meet Betty, I've just finished making her dress today in a mix of orange cotton fabrics. She will be listed for sale very soon and she'd really love a happy home to go to. If you fancy making your own Ragdoll the pattern is here. Helen

I have been making lots of my Tied Pillow covers for all of you that love this design but don't sew yourself, or don't have the time. I have used fabulous high quality Linen fabrics, this one is from Jane Churchill in soft grey and apricot, love Lillykeycap_starB

My new range of handmade linen pillow covers are now for sale in my Etsy shop.
The highest quality fine linen has been used so the covers drape beautifully. All seams overlocked for a long lasting professional finish.
They measure 16"(40cm) square.

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 in December 2012.

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.
Helen :)
