Kwik Sew K3897 Dungaree Hack

Hi Everyone, 

So today I'm sharing my new Dungarees. It's the Kwik Sew K3897 but with a twist. I was inspired by popular dungarees on the internet to change the pattern to a more casual look. The pattern anyway is loose fitting, but I wanted it to be baggy and fun to wear. 

Kielo Dress

Hi Everyone, 

Not going to lie, I feel pretty fancy in this new make. I bloody love it! This is my latest make on the Minerva Crafts Blogger Network. Something a little different for me, but it's opened my eyes to dressing more elegant (when it's this comfy of course!). 

My Mila Dungarees

Hi Everyone,

Guess what I made? My Mila dungarees! Woohoo! Seriously my first pair of dungarees since I was 12, (don't ask me why - as I love them so much) and they were a huge success.

The pattern, if you didn't know, is Mila by Tilly and the Buttons. You can purchase the printed Mila pattern HERE. It's a slim fitting dungaree, rather than the oversized, baggy look that seems to be popular at the moment (my next venture). With classic buckle fasteners, buttoned sides and stretch fabric. It's a stylish shape with added comfort.

Marigold/Bettine Hack

Hi Everyone, 

So for my latest make for the Minerva Crafts Blogger Network I combined two of my fave Tilly and the Buttons patterns. The Marigold jumpsuit with the top half of the Bettine dress. 

Life Updates.

Hi Everyone,

I thought I'd sit down with a cuppa and fill you in on everything that's been going on at the moment. Not going to lie, I'm also doing it to help with my own clarity and sanity - it's been a whirl wind of events.

Firstly, I want to point out that in these photos I'm wearing another gorgeous 'mum-made' knitted jumper. This one is in a super soft, black wool which is incredibly cosy. So Thanks Mum!!

Right, so, we've moved out. Yup, the building work at our house has got a little overwhelming and we soon realised we wouldn't be able to wash (or wee for that matter) for a couple days here and there. As well as having to eat, sleep, chill and store all our furniture in one room. We decided as we have family really near by, we'd move out so we can relax.

On top of that I got a puppy, well an 11 month old rescue pup, Luna. She's a French Bulldog, stubborn, funny and slightly nuts. So training, house training and adjusting is also happening. I know I haven't made it easy on myself. And let me tell you she's not easy to train!

I'm currently working from my 'temp home' and trying to carry on as usual. It's a little tricky but so far it's ok. Once I've got a routine going, I think I'll be alright. Please just bare with me replying to messages, comments and uploading on social media. It's going a take me a little longer right now.

All I keep telling myself is, it'll all be worth it in the end. We'll have our dream house, I'll have a new studio and the puppy won't be pooing everywhere!

Well I feel a little more relaxed now. Thanks for letting me share my unexciting news with you. 

Happy Handmade!
