Mai Tai Baby Carrier

Te Mai Tai baby carrier pattern from Sew Liberated is now available on the web site.

Iris shorts

Well I knew I wouldn’t be able to resist the Colette patterns! Last week I made the Iris shorts, it is a beginner pattern and was very easy to follow, and like the pattern says I made a pair in a day. I lined the pockets in red and also used red for inside the waistband. All I need now is some sunshine so that I can wear them!




Colette Sewing Patterns

We have had the complete range of Colette sewing patterns delivered and they are fantastic! I love Colette patterns because the instructions are so easy to follow, I am really going to have to restrain myself from using them they are all just so gorgeous. In fact the Iris shorts are just what I need!



Jumbo ric rac

I am loving this jumbo ric rac that we have just had in from May Arts. I think I am going to have to trim one of my skirts with it!


Lush fabrics

The fabric is arriving for the Trixie Lixie website! It is so exciting, the website design is almost finished, all I need to do then is upload all the gorgeous fabrics, trimmings, kits and other goodies to sell.
This fabric range is called Dreaming in French, designed by Pat Bravo for Art Gallery fabrics.







French knickers

I am always looking for new sewing idea’s and when I got the Colette patterns to sell on the Trixie Lixie website I couldn’t resist trying a few out. These knickers are made using the Nutmeg lingerie pattern. The fabric is an old silk scarf that I bought in a charity shop and the trimming was purchased from a vintage shop.
