9th January 2014

9thJanBlog1This week my Wednesday morning class has been busy. Aileen finished her gorgeous handbag, as seen in the pictures. It is beautifully lined and should wash nicely. A washable handbag! Complete with lined pockets.

Sharon is quilting making two sleeping bag covers with lots of applique for her twins, and Marina finished a beautiful skirt for her daughter. It is called the Madison Reversible Wrap skirt and is available to download the pattern on Etsy.

9thJanBlog2I have been busy testing out some new patterns, one for a childrens pixie cape and dolls clothes patterns, some childrens pixie hats for sale on my web site and of course preparing my website content for you all to look at. I hope you like it!

Each week I plan to let you know what we have been working on in class, to share our trials and trivulations and sewing triumphs!

My children have also started a bambino blog, where you will find top ideas and top sewing tips each week, aimed at inspiring and helping your own bambinos to sew!

9thJanBlog3I will finish todays note on an article from housetohome.co.uk/idealhomemagazine:

“Studies have shown that sewing is not only extremely satisfying, but also beneficial to your health. Research by Stitchlinks has confirmed that concentrating on the present moment while working on a crafting project means you’re not fretting about the past or worrying about the future – making it a great tool for managing stress.” I’ll raise a glass to that!
