    I saw the Cath Kidston oilcloth mini satchel style bags, but at £45 I was not going to buy one when I could make my own….

    Here is my own version!

    I used some very similar fabric and drafte…

    Hi Sheila. I would love to help but sadly I don’t have anymore of the material. It was REALLY simple to make, all I did was cut out a hat in cardboard and cover it with some thin net fabric. I’l…

    Oooh I have some of this fabric, I have half made a top but am not enjoying the white. Never thought about dying it! Thanks for the idea. I may have to dig it out and buy some dye, :)

    Good idea, I do have a lot of a plain creamy/beige fabric I could use to make a dress/skirt. Maybe I will make something nearer summer as its still not too great here.

    susie17 commented on the project A touch of summer in winter Quilt

    surprisingly, the sewing part has probably only taken about a week and including the cutting of the triangles a week and a half.
    Thankfully the photo doesn’t show how messy it is in real life :)

    I think I have this pattern, it is very easy to sew. Shame about the fit though :( Maybe you could take out the pleat at the front and make it more fitted around your waist.

    I went to my local fabric shop and found this in one of their weigh bins. Bought it for about £2 or less, found a zip and just bought some bias binding. Will have cost less than £4 in total.

    The fabric shop near me actually had some John Deere fabric!! It was yellow with the little green tractors on and the logo! It was just cotton print though so not good for a seat cover.

    Great …

    Exactly =) Did you shorten the bodice so it is under the bust? I found my attempt didn’t sit right where it was, I much prefer under the bust dresses.

    Thanks, I shall go have a hunt for some. Going to make one for my friend for her birthday, I think I prefer the glue ones as you can’t see the screws. :)

    These are fab!
    What type of frames did you use for these? I have seen some on ebay that have screws and some that say ‘glue in’. Were they easy to make?

    I also have that New Look pattern and I love it. So many choices in one pattern and so easy to make.
