2020 Make Nine Review and 2021 Make Nine Plans

Wow it has been a long time since I have written a blog post! 2020 was certainly an interesting year for me as it was for everyone else in the world. I spent a period of time working from home which was actually great for my sewing, unlike what many people seemed to experience; without... Continue Reading →

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 →

Thread Theory Eastwood Pajamas

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...
