These pillows are so cool, and part of Fat Quarter February, meaning you don’t even need a lot of fabric to create them. Which is great because there are so many fabrics I love but of course, they’re so expensive that I can only afford a fat quarter!
This is one super cute jacket! It took me a minute, but then I realised - Sloane Jacket….Sloane…Ferris Beuller’s Day Off! I’ve been seeing more and more fringe jackets and sweaters on the internet. The even better part of this design is that it’s made from fleece, meaning that it’s stylish for your little one but comfy and easy to sew/wash.
I’m on a bit of a pale blue kick at the moment, there’s something about the colour that makes Summer seem bearable - maybe it’s because it makes me think of perfect clear oceans, thick ice and pale skies! These wraps are so pretty and seem like a good beginners project.
I’ve been cross stitching like crazy lately and devouring any free patterns I can find! The Making Spot is a fantastic mix of free & pay patterns, tutorials and tips. I adore those flower patterns on the right - they would be great on a ring or hair pin.
Every morning when I get up I check the weather on my phone. And then, just to torture myself, I check the weather in New York. Mmm. 2 Degrees celsius. So cold. Then I get up and go out into the world of 38 degrees celsius and melt into a big pool of sweat. So today I bring you my ‘winter come now’ DIY of little hand warmers. Pop them in the microwave while you make your coffee then into your jacket pocket so you can warm up your hands before your drive to work. Also good to stick in your gloves if you’re not driving (just make sure they’re not too hot!). And not only is this great tutorial easy to follow & make, they’re super cute too!
I’ve been seeing a lot of cold shoulder tops lately, but as someone who isn’t keen on showing their arms, I love this version (cold chest shirt?!)
I really love the faux leather detail of these clutches - why would you want to use real leather when you can get the same look from faux!? Plus think of all the stuff I could fit into these… though they may not be able to fold over then… oh well!
Every time I look through the Purl Bee website I wish again that I could knit! I freakin’ love both of these blankets, but especially the multicoloured striped blanket. Doesn’t it look so warm and comfortable? Perfect for wrapping up in during those cold nights in front of the TV or when reading a book. Oh man. SOMEONE KNIT THIS FOR MEEEE!
If your pre-New Year resolution is to bring more colour and fun into your wardrobe, you can’t go past a pinky coral sweater with pom poms! I just love the colour, does anyone know where to get this from?! If you’re feeling adventurous you could go for bigger poms or a black jumper with glittery poms! Oooh, pom-tastic.
Call me a crazy cat lady, I just love any cat DIYs! Haha! This is super cute, and easy to sew one up - add it to a tshirt if you don’t want to do a jersey!
Guys, I know I only just posted a tutu skirt DIY a few days ago but seriously, how could I not post this one too!? I need to try and find some polka dot tulle because this thing is flippin’ cute. I love how they have styled it too with the tied shirt. Very Dirty Dancing!
This might be the comfiest ballerina skirt I’ve ever seen, and maybe one of the easiest to make too. Starting with a stretchy fabric tube, you build up your tulle/lace/chiffon layers and then pop a full length piece over the top. So you get the comfy stretchy base, the layers to give it the ‘frouffy-ness’ and the sheer top to spin around in! Plus, because this is based on your measurements rather than a pattern, anyone could make this in any size or length. Time to get the sewing machine back out!
So it seems that the spikes trend is not going anywhere, and I for one am happy about that! I love how they give a traditional jacket a tough makeover, yet the lovely little bow on the back adds sweetness too.
This project is more of a intermediate project that combines two styles of skirts - bodycon and circle skirt. Using a skirt you already know as the base, you make each piece and then sew them together. I truly love the colour of this skirt - so perfect for Summer!
Gathered skirts are my all time favourite thing to sew - they are so easy(sew easy? hah!) to make and they give some shape to my barrel of a body! Third best thing - you can make them in all different lengths and fabrics. There are very few people who don’t look good in these skirts - and they’re really easy to wear. This is a great beginner sewing project. OK, enough talking about gathered skirts, get to it and make one already!
