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!
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!
If you’ve been into the shop asking about patterns, you’ll know that Fiona and I rave about Jalie Patterns. The simplicity of them, coupled with their extensive size range make them a firm favourite. The Michelle (#3911) is a great pattern for a Cami and Dress.
When we first laid plans for opening The Wee Fabric Shop, back in October 2017, one of the most important issues for us was to be an environmentally conscious business. We began with the obvious one of not buying in plastic bags. Purchasing items in bulk meant less packaging not only for us but you, it helped our carbon footprint with fewer delivies, this was, and still is tough, being a small business. We don’t have huge budgets of buying power but we are making our views known with what we purchase. Products which are good quality and built to last.
