Matilda Bag make from today!

This little bag is made from ticking and seeded cotton, with a slightly adapted Matilda Bag Pattern from my paper pattern range. I love the look of ticking, smart and quite nautical, and it's so soft to work with! The Matilda pattern has a zipped pocket inside and a patch pocket on the front, a nice size for day or evening!

My day with the mini sewers!


This is Ellie, Lottie and Annabel, three cousins with a passion for sewing, so lovely to see in a young person. When I arrived they were making scissor keepers from my Spring cd, and I must admit I was slightly envious of their fabulous sewing room!

My Christmas cd!

This is Christmas Carole, the tree fairy, and Santa Claus from my latest double cd set. There are 5 characters and 5 very easy Christmas decorations, with 10 sets of photographic step by step instructions, 10 patterns to download and 10 links to video tutorials. Available on my web site., from Friday 12th June. All of the patterns can be adapted, so for instance  Carole can become a rag doll, the robins could be birds of paradise, the penguin... well I suppose he'll always be a penguin! But you can enjoy them all year round.
The fabrics are also new, Scandinavian inspired reds and greys. I love working with good quality fabric, and this certainly is!
