Welcome Back!

Let’s be honest…it’s been a while since I put anything on this blog; over a year in fact! So first of all, welcome back!  I’m planning on getting my blog back up and running as I’m still very much sewing every day and making lots of things that I can share with you.  I share…

Chalk & Notch Fringe Pattern Update!

This is such a cute pattern! I always see a lot of Chalk & Notch patterns floating around on Instagram, particularly the Fringe Dress/Blouse. I was so excited to hear that Gabriela was updating the pattern and making a C/D bust version too.

Kwik Sew 3983 – Rosie’s Dungarees

I absolutely love dungarees on children!  Though, when I say ‘dungarees’ here in Alabama, no-one knows what I’m on about.  They’re called rompers or jumpers here. Crazy. 😛 Anyway, this Kwik Sew pattern is just adorable and it’s one that I just couldn’t wait to make for Rosie.  I had acquired a random piece of…

2019 Make Nine Plans

I’m joining in with Rochelle’s #MakeNine challenge again for 2019. I really enjoyed having goals to meet last year and managed to make seven out of the nine. Having a plan to work along to really works for my organized little brain. As you can see above, I’ve chosen a mix of patterns for both…

2018 Make Nine Round Up

At the start of 2018, I joined in with the #2018makenine challenge for the first time.  I tried to include a variety of makes and a little something for everyone in the house.  I also wanted to make sure that I picked my projects from a variety of sources; paper patterns, pattern books, PDFs &…
