    You wanted to know where I got the rocket fabric for my son’s PJs. It was crybaby fabrics. They do fantastic fabrics especially jersey and loads of them are great for kids. Luckily living in the…

    001e5b10ad0d4b2991a2e7bca784f8076db373ea_listing

    I loved this pattern in BWoF, but I hate skirts with slits. It wasn’t until I was tracing the pattern that I thought ‘why not make it an A-line?’ It’s the first time I’ve significantly re-drafted…

    A7e786b80d038fb2b4104d365550dfc8a72a9eb4_listing

    I can’t pass up a bargin. This means I have lots of lovely, but small pieces of fabric from remnant bins.

    What a beautiful jacket. I love the colour and particularly the shape. I hope you get a lot of wear out of it.

    This fabric was on sale at £1/m. Not only is it pretty but it’s tough, almost like denim. I used these trousers to practice matching stripes. I’m pretty pleased with the result.

    I don’t lik…

    Sew, sew, sew. That’s what I did. I left ALL the household chores and I don’t think I even packed a bag as I was having a homebirth. I’ve only just managed to get back to sewing now after six mo…

    I’ve just posted a dress (BWOF 02-2007-123) that I am finding useful post-pregnancy. It’s in a knit fabric so fits rounds the tummy as it’s going back in (even more slowly with number three!). Th…

    It’s been out in the rain once and didn’t leak. I used a cotton thread as someone suggested on the forum. The theory is that this expands when wet and fills the hole.
