When you think of cardigans, do you think of something boring and dull, that old people wear? These easy cardigan sewing patterns for women are stylish and fun. They are perfect to wear in the evenings when there's a chill in the air. Throw one on when you need to wear a few layers, or keep one in your handbag for when the temperature in the cinema is way too cold.
Baby shoes are so cute, and handmade baby shoes are even better. When the weather gets hot, it's time to get out the baby sandals sewing patterns. Protect baby's precious feet but keep them cool at the same time.
DIY baby sandals make a great baby shower gift idea too for the friend who's having a summer baby (and they're guaranteed not to get too many baby flip-flops, unlike so many other baby shower gifts!).
Here's a cute collection of baby sandal sewing patterns for boys and girls to wear on hot days:
Today I'm reviewing the newly released book Sewing School Quilts: 15 Projects Kids Will Love to Make by Amie Petronis Plumley and Andria Lisle.
For this week's Fave Fabric Friday, I'm in love with Hollywood Pixies that has just been released by Michael Miller.
It's a fun Christmas collection (although some of the prints are subtle enough to be used all year round), with pixies and holly and Christmas trees. The collection comes in two colourways. Above is the Hollyberry colour-way, which is the traditional Christmas colours of red and bright green, with splashes of pale blue and peach.
Spring is here, and it's time to start spring cleaning! Not your whole house though - that would be silly. Let's just focus on the important thing - spring cleaning your sewing room!
It's time for Fave Fabric Friday again, and after making a dress for myself in the lovely lightest of cotton, I'm on the search for more pretty dress fabrics. I'm not really a fan of floral prints and generally prefer geometric designs, but Petite Garden in Lawn by Sevenberry for Robert Kaufman Fabrics caught my eye as something feminine without being an over-the-top floral.
One way you can participate in the Threadistry sewing community is to add your "Sew and Tells". This is your review of a sewing pattern or tutorial, and a chance to share your sewing. There is also a prize each month, randomly selected from the users who have added a Sew and Tell.
Today, I'm going to show you how to quickly add a Sew and Tell to Threadistry.
This week for Fave Fabric Friday I went in search of fabrics for my 9-year-old son and stumbled across the True Love fabric collection by Libs Elliott for Andover Fabrics. I love the modern geometric designs and simple colour palette of black, white and green.
