Make your own cosy sheepskin style slipper boots using a free pattern from Wee Fab favourite Tilly & The Buttons……….
A simple design which can show of your favourite piece of fabric, whilst only using a minimal piece. Quick to whip up as a gift, especially when you are short of time.
The unsponge meaning: Unsponges are little reusable sponges made from natural cloth. Used on kitchen bench tops to wipe up spills, wash dishes and to clean sinks or stoves.
I’ve made a few different cleaning clothes or sponge alternatives over the years and this is by far my favourite.
Cute wee game cards which you can easily make, even without sewing.
Creating little felt squares with the cutest characters from Dashwood Studios Winter range, Snow Much Fun.
Play snap, a memory game, make up a story or invent your own game.
When I’m sewing I get a bit absent minded … concentrating on my creation and not where I’m putting things! Back in 2014, when I started teaching, I had to get out of the habit of holding pins in my mouth …not only was it dangerous ~ I could accidently swallow one ~ but totally unhygenic too!
I came up with this wrist pin cushion pattern, using a milk bottle top to stop the pins from pricking me!Continue reading Wrist Pin Cushion Pattern
Oh I thoroughly enjoyed sewing these Pj’s up, for quickness I made the shorts version plus it’s summer here now too. Tilly has created another fabulous sewing pattern with the Jaimie’s, coupled with her how-to video they make a wonderful starting point to introduce you into sewing. There’s been an extra size added for teens / tweens too so no excuses not to get started here!Continue reading Jaimie Pyjama Pattern Review ~ Tilly and the Buttons

A recess zip can be made and added to any bag, whether it’s lined or not.
It’s a handy technique to know, use your off cuts and bright fabrics, break out that stash of unloved zips, make loads of them. It’s great for practicing your topstitching. Either go bold with contrasting stitching or stealth with perfectly co-ordinated thread. Why not use up all you thread ends and have multi-coloured stitching.
