Carolyn Pyjamas – Shirt Hack and Review

May has been quite a bit of a crazy month for me with the pandemic and work so I haven't had a chance to blog much. Instead I've been sharing my makes on Instagram. One of my most recent makes was a Carolyn Pyjamas shirt. I hacked the pattern by squaring the collar and grading... Continue Reading →

Sew Over It Hebden T-Shirt

The Hebden T-shirt was released by Sew Over It as a Stitch School class in December last year and I really liked the pattern, however since I am quite comfortable sewing with jersey I didn't really want to pay for the subscription for one pattern. So you can imagine how excited I was when they... Continue Reading →

Jenny Overalls and Trousers

I'm very excited to have finally given the Closet Case Jenny Overalls and Trousers a try and I am quite proud of the result. I chose to make the cropped version in a dinosaur print drill fabric from Spotlight. Given the restrictions on leaving the house at the moment and uncertainty with postage, I chose...

My First Embroidery Project

I have always liked embroidery and wanted to learn how to embroider so last Christmas I purchased 2 embroidery kits from Spotlight. Each kit contains 2 patterns, a hoop, needle and threads. One of the kits contained 2 floral patterns, and the other contained a bee and a butterfly pattern. In early January I started... Continue Reading →

March Makes

March has been a very bizarre month with everything that is going on in the world at the moment. With the restrictions currently in place in Australia I have been spending all of my time at home. I guess the upside of all of this is that at least I have had a lot of... Continue Reading →

As part of my Make Nine 2020 plans I committed to making more selfless sewing items. I already completed this plan in January with the Plantain t-shirts I made for my sister (in my January Make Nine 2020 post). This month I made another selfless sewing item, the Thread Theory Eastwood Pajamas for my partner.... Continue Reading →

Make Nine 2020

I made my Make Nine plans for 2020 quite a while ago, however January was a pretty hectic month so I haven't had a chance to write about it until now. Last year was the first time I made Make Nine plans and I didn't complete many of my plans so this year I have... Continue Reading →

2019 Wrap Up

2019 was an interesting year for me, I think in a lot of ways it was quite a challenging year, but in saying that, there were a lot of positives. In particular, I felt like my sewing improved significantly throughout the year and I learnt quite a bit. My proudest sewing achievement this year would... Continue Reading →

November Makes

This wasn't a particularly productive month for me in terms of sewing so this post will be quite short. I managed to cut out quite a few projects and organise my sewing space but only completed one project. This month I made my first Sew Over It Florence Dress. I used a orange and purple...

My First Coat!

I'm very excited about my latest make because I have finally made my first coat! I have always loved duffle coats so I was very excited when the Tilly and the Buttons Eden Coat was released because it had duffle coat and raincoat options. Around the time it was released, my local Spotlight store also... Continue Reading →
