Hexagonal Quilt

I always thought hexagonal quilts looked really complicated to make, how on earth do sew that? But it's actually a piece of pie! And the bonus for me, it's done by hand so no heavy sewing machine to drag out and no risk of noise waking a sleeping toddler! It uses what's called the English … Continue reading Hexagonal Quilt


Pram bag

It has taken a while but it's finally here...the pram caddy pattern!

Perhaps not the most exciting sewing project, but certainly a practical and worth while one! I try to be environmentally but I'll be honest, the real catalyst for this project was the introduction of the 5p charge for plastic carry bags!  It's easy to see that is having an effect on people's reliance on plastic bags, … Continue reading Shopping Tote Bag | Free Pattern
