    Trying to flex the old sewing muscles before I tackle a jacket – a dress I made for my daughter using Simplicity pattern 2987. Enjoyed doing this, especially when I showed it to her and she loved i…

    charlsfarls commented on the article Comment to Win "Sew Up a Home Makeover!"

    If I could make over one room it would have to be the bedroom – and the word I would love to be able to describe it as would be sensual – because it hasn’t looked that way since we had our first ch…

    charlsfarls commented on the project B & W checked shirt/blouse

    Ah thanks so much! It does actually sit better at the back though it looks all bunch up somehow in the picture! I perhaps might need to take the back darts in a bit. Im a funny shape! It was a good…

    A shirt I made using black n white 1/4in check cotton fabric – note the sleeves are rolled up on purpose, and not because somehow I managed to sew on one sleeve the wrong way, despite matching up t…

    charlsfarls added the project Pleated purse
    Pleated-purse-of-prettiness_listing

    A bag I made from a free pattern at U handbag. Some of the fabric glue I used is a wee bit visible but wont make the mistake of using too much again!

    Well worth a check out of Lisa’s patterns bo…

    charlsfarls added the project Top with silly straps
    Dac2fb7aaacadcdd665565fb77b458d8a790e349_listing

    Really not happy with the finished top – i think i chose the wrong trim for the straps and think it looks ‘antwacky’ as my mum would say. Or hideous, whichever you prefer. Buuut, I did learn a lot …

    My very first attempt at making a skirt! Its a fitted skirt from the burda start2 range, and it was nice and easy to make, and has built my confidence up a little. And it fits great!

    Scarf that can be made from an old t -shirt – if its plenty big enough that is! Guess it depends how long/full you want it. Unless you just happen to have some jersey/t-shirt fabric knocking about!…

    Swooon….I fell in love with this scarf and had some jersey/t shirt fabric staring at me, crying out to be used!! So i have just made one, what a satisfyingly quick but super effective project! An…

    charlsfarls commented on the technique Twin needle stitching for knit fabrics

    Wow – you are fab!! I ended up buying an overlocker thinking that I would be able to achieve the ‘coverstitch’ technique with it, not realising that you have to buy a specific cover stitch machine!…
