Half Yard Home

This is my next book to be published on the 15th October this year, followed by Sew Useful later on...

It's so exciting to see the hard work coming to life, and so rewarding to see my name on the front of a book! My younger self would never have foreseen this!

I'm working on a range of patterns and products, please feel free to chip in with any requests, anything you feel is lacking in our world of cloth and thread!

  2. I will be really interested to see your new book, just sorted through my stash of fabric that I've ignored for years! Good luck with all your new ventures.Wendyx

  3. I made you craft caddy from your half yeard heaven book, but it's so small, the pockets say fold in half, (4" square x 6" lengthwise ) so...2" x 6" they look like they come half way up the sides on your illustration, what am I doing wrong, I can't use the pockets for anything.

    1. Hi Sue, I've just double checked, not sure if it's my workings out or a typo, but they should have been twice the size! I've e mailed Search Press and asked them to amend the next print run, so sorry, that's really embarrassing! But thanks for letting me know, I'll be checking and double checking the next book!

    3. That's a relief, thought I was going crazy, I've just double checked too, yes it was 6.1/2" x 4" , so I'll just store thimbles in this one lol and make the next one larger. :)

  4. It looks good can't wait to get it. Absolutely love your half yard heaven and in a week of having my first sewing machine I have made a dust cover for it and a little pin cushion. I now have a list as long as my arm of projects from gifts for family and friends to curtains. You make it sew easy and as a beginner I know that I can achieve fabulous results. Thank you. Jx

  5. I can't wait to get this book Debbie as I already have your first one Half Yard Heaven. It would be great if could do a tutorial or feature in a book on how to make a fabric basket.

  7. Hello. Just got back in to sewing after many years away, and I love your Half Yard Heaven that I have just bought. Just one question, and I hope it doesn't sound too daft, but are the seam allowances 1/4 in, or just what I think? (Definitely sounds daft to me!)
    Thank you

    1. Not daft at all! I think I said in the front of the book somewhere that I use a 1/4" seam allowance unless otherwise stated, I think thats fine for crafty projects, I'd use a wider seam allowance for dressmaking. If you use a wider allowance your project would be slightly smaller, Hope that helps!

  8. Thank you for that! I'm not terribly good at reading things first - tend to just dive in! Can't wait for you new book coming out either.
