Put A Bow On It! | Brit + Co
Felt bows must be one of the easiest things to make - all you need is felt, scissors and a hot glue gun. But what to do with your little felt bows other than put them in your hair? Brit + Co has your answer - attach them to everything! I particularly love the dog bow tie - great for when your dog is going for an important interview or attending a wedding!

Patchwork Pretties

I’m all about the patchwork right now, so I’ve been collecting patterns a plenty. Here are a few of my favourites - from a simple patchwork art hoop to a big quilt (this is using the Scrumptious fabric from Moda - it’s really gorgeous!). And if you want the look but don’t have the time/skills, you can download some very pretty patchwork art!

Quilt Block Skirt Pocket | Sew Mama Sew
New new obsession is quilting (if you follow me on Pinterest you will be nodding your head!) so this little project caught my eye. Skirts are one of the easiest things to sew, all you need is some fabric and elastic, but this little quilt pocket adds some real sweetness to what would otherwise be a plain skirt. Just watch out, because you might get addicted to quilting too!

Neoprene Mini Skirt | A Pair & A Spare
That’s right, neoprene - as in wetsuit fabric! Normally I would run a mile from any piece of clothing made from this material, but made into a flirty little pink mini skirt it has won me over! The fabric gives it a lovely structual quality and actually looks quite comfy! Plus the beauty of neoprene is you don’t have to hem it or add a zip.

Shirred Voile Pajama Pants | Noodle Head
These pajama pants are so pretty - I would wear these outside! I’m on a bit of a fabric kick at the moment, and have been obsessively poring over the beautiful fabrics at Fabric Worm. I suggest you have a look there for some nice material to make a pair of pjs that are totally you! Straight up - this is an advanced sewing project! Mainly because it involves shirring, which involves using elastic thread… which can be very difficult! But it’s still a really fun project so if you’re keen, go for it!

Vintage Sheet Duvet Cover | My Poppet
I always have so much trouble finding duvet covers I like. The problem is that I get in my head what the perfect one would be, then when I can’t find this in the stores I get despondent! I love the idea of making my own, which has occurred to me but the how has been what held me back. This is a fantastic tutorial on how to make a duvet to perfectly fit your bed (another problem for some of us with high/oddly shaped beds!) using a vintage sheet or any fabric you like. I especially love the trim at the end!

Free Sewing Room Organization Printables | See Kate Sew

My sewing box is a terrible, disorganised mess right now, so it seemed to be a touch of kismet to come across these free printable labels! Grab yourself some mason jars and glue and get organised yourself. And if you’re feeling brave, you could even attach the lids of the jars to the underside of a shelf so you can screw on/off your jars and keep all your other crafty stuff above! Hmm, I just inspired myself…
