 Hi Everyone, 

I'm back on the Minerva Crafts Blogger Network to bring you another make. I've gone back to making more easy-to-wear staples. I was always reaching for an old grey jumper that didn't fit quite right, but I loved wearing it. So I thought; Why not make one? Exactly how I want, so I did. 


I'm in Mollie Makes!

Thursday, June 13, 2019
Hi Everyone,

Yes the title is correct! My dream has come true, I have written a project for Mollie Makes. I've been reading the magazine since Issue 1. I have all the copies still; they're all around my house, craft room and the sewing school.



In Issue 107 (out now at time of posting) is my feature. I made this 90's inspired self-drafted dress. I give you the formula to make it right for you. And I'm so happy with how it turned out. I made it in a flowy, viscose crepe and love the look and feel of it. I'm a little chuffed.


I hope you like what I made and if you haven't got a copy of Issue 107, make sure you get one before it's too late. I can definitely recommend the magazine!

Happy Handmade!

Hi Everyone,

So I thought I'd share a few photos from recent workshops and sew sessions. Mainly for those of you who don't get to come to the studio but would love to see what we get up to.

Easter Needle Felting Workshop


Sometimes I have to pinch myself that this is my job. I have so much fun teaching so many lovely people, and now we have some wonderful 'regulars' I feel like I have tons of sewing friends. The best idea I had for the school was our Sew Sessions. Quality sewing time with help when you need it. People can bring their projects, their unfinished items (UFOs haha) and get some proper sewing time in. Plus I'm hanging around to help with tricky pattern instructions and when you get stuck. I now have a facebook group for our Sew Session attendees to chat all things sewing and share their latest makes. You can join it HERE

Hi Everyone, 

I forgot to share with you the last make I did on the Minerva Crafts Blogger Network. I made a pair of 'Monsal Pants' in Black Ponte Roma and oh my gosh they're so comfy!
