    Thank you! They’re quite relaxing to make. Was considering posting the pattern on the website, but not sure if there would be any implications, since it’s not my own.

    With the severe lack of sewing in my life, I decided to go back to basics from a lack of inspiration. I made some soft toy frogs a few years ago and gave one to my sister. My nieces (especially the…

    Sorry about the bad photos! They don’t do the fabric much justice!

    Well, it took me a while to upload these! Finishing them, that’s another story. It took me quite some time to even get hems on them! Yes, my sewing projects have been scarce of late from a severe l…

    Yeah, she’s seen pictures of it and likes it. But now she won’t be coming back until later since she broke her leg overseas :( Which means she needs the doll even more right now

    Ok, I admit, I’m having an obsession with this fabric… I still have heaps of it left too, but it’s so gorgeous!

    With the left over material that I had from recovering my desk chair I decided to make a bag. Turned out delightful, very happy with the result :) Instead of using a zip, I decided to use a large b…

    My desk chair was looking worse for wear so I decided to recover it. I measured my chair to get the right fit and it ended up turning into a better homes and gardens type job!

    Yeah! It’s not much better in Melbourne either… Completed the shorts well enough, but having some trouble with the top. Onto the third try now!

    Indeed the pattern and instructions are terribly lacking! Started making the swimsuit, tried it on halfway through and discovered that it’s designed for short people!! It was 15cms too short for me…

    Very retro of you. I understand the urge to hand sew with new things as I’m a novice myself. But I usually end up cracking the shits at the machine and fabric and try again in a couple of days time…

    Great job! Love the style, could almost see a reuse of fabric from curtain material with this one.

    Very 60’s with the houndstooth pattern, but very gorgeous! I think it works better a bit shorter

    AH! That’s freaky! Perhaps we’re a bit too new-age for our mums and it’s old world to stick to patterns lol

    Yeah, it feels fun to wear it too! You can’t tell in the pictures, but it has some fraying in the hems too.

    Thanks! I often cross patterns and then don’t use one for making something, then when I ask advice from my mum about how to do something she says “I don’t know, what does the pattern say?”

    I love tunics and saw someone in Melbourne city wearing something similar to this and thought “I can make my own!”
