If I had the figure and the bank balance to afford it, I would just live in Kate Spade’s clothes! They are quirky, timeless classics. All her pieces are cut beautifully, are colourful and fun. As I said though, it’s not going to happen but I can still get the style via sewing! This skirt is super cute, and the a-line shape is great for so many shapes & sizes.
Get it?! Haha! I know this might seem hard to do, but the back stitch is one of the easiest stitches you can do. Just make sure you buy yourself a hoop - it will keep your tshirt tight so your stitches will be nice and neat.
I was so excited when I came across Satsuma Street. Her cross stitch patterns are so amazing, and I check back regularly to see if she has new patterns! I am currently working on these Pretty Little City patterns - the Paris one right now, then London and then the Russian one - they are going to look amazing framed as a set!
I’m all about sewing at the moment and have some really fantastic patterns that i have been collecting. This sweet little felt squirrel would be so cute to make as Christmas ornaments don’t you think?! Sorry, I shouldn’t be talking about Christmas yet! Haha!
If you have a jumper you love that has seen better days, why not make it into a super cute and soft pillow!? These pillows would be so cute in a kids room. If you don’t have a jumper to cut up, have a search through your local op shop - look for ones with a great pattern or texture.
Last week was pretty much blog-free because I was on a deadline to finish my dad’s birthday present - a beautiful blue and white cross stitch of The Willow Pattern. He loved it, and I was so pleased with the result. Now I’m a little bit in love with blue and white cross stitches - there is something simplistic but sweet about them. So i was immediately drawn to this lovely Dutch canal house pattern and it’s shades of blue. Of course, you can do yours in any colours you wish - let your imagination run free and make it your own!
I’ve seen pieces lik this for sale on etsy and thought - that is so amazing, there’s no way I could ever create anything like that! But after reading this tutorial, i think that maybe I could - once you have learnt how to stitch the ‘lazy daisy’, it’s quite simple. I love both these pieces and think they’d look amazing en masse!
I’m all about hand sewing at the moment so whenever I see a great project I’m all over it! I love sewing projects for friends and family and I think that my niece would love this, especially with the little felt flowers. Very sweet and girly - a perfect fit for her room!
If you are wanting to give something other than sugar based treats this Easter, a sewn rabbit is the perfect substitute. There are tons of cute patterns out there, but these three are by far my favourites. How adorable are the little jackets on the Purl Rabbits?!
Using two sweaters, a little bit of altering and sewing you end up with this super comfy looking dress. OK, so you might not be able to wear it to a nightclub but for grocery shopping or hanging out, this would be perfect!
I just got myself a seriously cute phone cover… that does nothing to protect my phone! Grr. And as someone who has a habit of dropping my phone like a hot potato, I need to sew something together to protect it from pavements, floorboards, tiles, and everything else I drop my phone on. And that little deer is super cute! Even if you don’t want to stitch it onto a cover, it would still be a sweet design for decoration.
These would be the perfect bracelets for me because when I wear bracelets I find they smack against everything! These would be soft and comfortable to wear and they look gorgeous too. Plus yes, I love the dress in this picture! Now I just need to find someone to knit these for me!
What a sweet way to personalise a plain skirt! From my favourite magazine comes an easy tutorial on how to make your own patch with fabric, appliques and a few simple stitches. Loving this!
I bought my first jumper of the season on Saturday - a black jumper with white spots. I think the second jumper will have to be a plain one so I can add these adorable preppy elements, especially those elbow patches!
I know it doesn’t look it, but this is a very easy sewing project to do! The combo of sheer fabric and elasticised waist also means it’s going to be comfy and cool to wear in Summer. Oh yes, plus I love the way this is styled with the gingham shirt, so cute!
