Dawn Jeans - Bringing back the Flares!

Hi Everyone, 

Yes it's Minerva Crafts Blogger Network time! And I'm here to rave about my latest make - The Megan Nielsen Dawn Jeans. 

I'm totally amazed that I actually made these, it's something I've been wanting to do since I started dressmaking, but always thought I wasn't good enough. I made the Wide Leg version and the fit of these is just incredible, I was so shocked that they actually fitted me properly. I'm definitely making another pair! 

Updates from the Studio

Hello everyone!

I hope you're all well and not too cold (if you live in the UK that is). I'm not a huge fan of winter, I'm a 'cold in summer' kind of person so I'm struggling a little bit at the moment. Layers are my best friend right now. Although the Sewing School is warm as we had a fancy heating system installed the first week of the month. 

Anyway, I wanted to show you something that we're loving. The amazing Gutermann (my fave thread brand in the world!) gifted us one of their fat quarter bundles in their Marrakesh Patterned fabrics. We instantly wanted to use every single one, and Mum and I came up with the idea to make bunting. We decorated the whole upstairs wall!  

Self Drafted Jumpsuit

Hi Everyone!

So if you haven't seen my latest blog post on the Minerva Crafts Blogger Network, I thought I'd share some extra photos of my latest make. I adore this new make, it's so comfy and adds to my collection of 'dressing a baby' clothes! 

Festive Workshops @ Thirsty Bird

Hi Everyone!

Hope you're all getting excited for the big day. Cannot believe it's only a few sleeps away. I have to say I'm not feeling 100% Christmassy yet. But that might be because I'm still not organised!! I have so much wrapping to do, and I still haven't finished my Christmas cards. WHOOPS!

Anyway I wanted to share some cosy festive photos from my Christmas Craft Workshops at The Thirsty Bird in Wimborne. The first workshop I did was an evening of felt bauble making. Everyone made a little brussel sprout and a Christmas pudding, and my gosh they all did amazing. I had so much fun and I think everyone loved it too.
