Me Made May – Knickers!

Well it all kicks off tomorrow with Me Made May and I have pledged to wear at least one handmade garment every day during May, so I thought I had better make some more knickers. This pair is my favorite so far, I used Moda Sewing box buttons fabric.

The Belcarra Blouse

When the brand new Sewaholic Belcarra blouse patterns arrived this week I couldn’t wait to have a go at making one, it was so EASY to make that I immediately made another one!

Two blouses in one day, I think this pattern is going to be very useful, especailly if, like me, you make lots of skirts and never have any tops to wear them with.

The first one is made using some lovely embroidered and sequinned white cotton lawn from our dressmaking fabrics range.

Tote bags

April is always a busy month of birthdays for me, as I have said before, I think Tote bags make a great present. These ones have a bit more to offer than my usual book bag style, they are fully lined, with a gusset on the bottom and a very useful pocket inside.
