Buttoned, smocked tote bag for you to sew!

Thought you may like to have a go at this, there's not a huge amount of smocking and the technique looks more complicated than it is. Try making the bag shorter and it makes a lovely evening bag!

How to draw the perfect heart

The perfect heart can be quite a tricky shape to draw, so here’s my tip... fold a piece of card in half. Take a small plate, ribbon spool or anything round of the size you want, and place it over the fold. Draw around the curve.
Then take a ruler, and draw a line from the side of the circle to the fold. If you make a short line, you’ll have a fat heart, a longer line will give you a ‘Scandinavian’ shape heart! Simple!

Supersoft Faux Leather fabric

I've found the most amazingly soft faux leather fabric, it'll be on the web site as soon as it arrives, lovely to work with and you can iron it from the back! I didn't even need to use my Teflon foot to sew it. Bring on the bags!
