It’s that time year when we want to feel comfy and cozy because its getting cold outside! I used one of my favorite patterns to make Amelia a pyjama top, Jalie 3245 and for the bottoms I used Jalie 3243 for the first time.
Every year, I look forward to the arrival of the Fall fabric collections. This year, the Monsoon rayon twill collection caught my eye and the foulard print in green and navy blue was instantly my favorite. Right away, I wanted to make it into a long shirt to wear with skinny pants and long boots.
Fall is all about basic pullover tops so when I saw this vogue 9169 pattern, I knew I had to make it. I hunted for the perfect fabric from Fabricville and made this magical combo. I have never made two views of this same pattern as fast as I made this!
Are you preparing to take a vacation in the next few weeks? There’s no better way to prepare for your trip than by producing some cool DIY sewing creations to accessorize your travel items.
On my recent trip to San Francisco I knew exactly the jacket/coat I needed, both there in the misty mornings and at home in the windy and wet days here in Halifax.
I have to say I was thrilled when Jalie patterns appeared at my local Fabricville. I have long been a huge Jalie fan and it was so nice to know that I can now just go down to the bottom of my street to buy them – no more taping printed letter sized sheets together, no more waiting for the patterns to come in the mail.
Now that winter is finally behind us and the sunny days have begun, it won’t be long until your patio once again starts playing host to garden parties, BBQs and other fun gatherings with friends. However, before that, you should make sure your furniture is up to the task. If your patio furniture has not aged well, you should consider refurbishing it by updating the fabric. Ditch the dirty old cushion covers and replace them with something that has style and sophistication!
I decided that this Spring and Summer were going to be all about dress this year! When I saw the lovely fabric for the Spring collection of Fabricville, I knew I was going to have a lot of fun creating dresses this year!
Hey there! I’m back with another dress…(I promise you, I do make some practical, everyday garments, really I do) …but it’s no secret that I love dresses and this one is on the favorite list for sure! It would be perfect for a summer wedding.
The history of knitting is certainly a tricky one to unpick. Due to early knitting projects being made from natural fibres such as wool, cotton, and silk, many have since decomposed leaving few surviving examples of the craft. So where did knitting originate? Let’s deconstruct this mystery!
As Spring approaches I’m trying to hurry it up by making a warm weather dress, from bright red quilting cotton featuring playful mice, of course! Unfortunately making a cotton spring dress means I had to wait a week for a day suitable for outdoor pictures after finishing it.
