Neon Stripes Tapestry Purse

neon stripes modern tapestry purse

Have you seen H’s Bee purse? I LOVE it and it inspired me to make a tapestry purse of my own! I wanted it to be really bright and colourful and I stuck with a basic stripy pattern so the colours could be the main focus. I created a small bit of tapestry (this one…

Liberty Print Head Scarves


These head scarves are another good way to use up bits fabric you have lying around. As I’ve shown you before, my stash of Liberty print is pretty large and I figured they’d be a lovely way to show off the beautiful prints! They’re really easy to make, just cut a strip of fabric (I…

Dress #2 – Floral Print


This dress has been a while in the making; I started it a few weeks ago but just haven’t found the time to complete it. I went away to Devon and Cornwall for a week which is also why I’ve been a bit quiet on here. I finally managed to finish the dress today though –…

Sleepy Baby Flabbit


There is a new member in the Flabbit family! He is little and sleepy and has ears to match his Mother. This is my first baby Flabbit, so I imagine his design will change a bit. BUT I just wanted to share him with you. Hope you like him as much as I do! H.

Pretty in Pink Dress


After watching the Great British Sewing Bee and seeing all the dreses they made on the first episode I decided I needed to face my fears and make my first dress. I picked up a pattern in a half price sale (£4 – bargain) and bought cheap fabric so I didn’t have too much to lose by…

This week’s project…

Not too long ago I showed you some of the fabrics that I had collected in India and I was wondering what to use them for. I have finally settled on an idea! I am lucky enough to be meeting my friend G in Paris in a week and want to finish it in time…

Flabbit Family


You’ve seen my regular flabbits… now have a look at some new mini flabbits. These happened completely by mistake. They look like crazy little alien rabbits, I’m not too sure about them. Their legs are ridiculously thin, their eyes wonky, and they aren’t the best formed things…. but aren’t they cute? These flabbits are gonna…

Fabric Decisions


I recently went travelling to India. One day me and my friend G wandered into a block printing factory. I’ve seen similar prints for sale at home, and in India they cost about a tenth of the price. So I went a little crazy and had a parcel of about 20 metres wrapped, stitched up…

Liberty Coin Purse

Liberty Coin Purse

I have a bit of an obsession with Liberty fabric, if I could afford it I think I’d make everything using it. Last week I bought a small piece of the ‘Mitsi’ print in green on eBay. It’s only 35x35cm so I decided I’d try and make a small coin purse with it. I ordered…

Simple Spring Skirts

Simple Spring Skirt

We’re four days into March which means spring has officially begun! My sister and I decided to mark the arrival of one of our favourite seasons by making some new, decidedly un-wintery, skirts. Our pattern cutting/following/sewing skills aren’t great but we picked a simple pattern and we think the results are perfect! I used a thin…
