As a child my mom and nan always had a sewing machine and were able to make clothing with ease. I dabbled a little as a teenager, but it didn’t really become a passion until later in life. It started one day when I picked up a cheap cross stitch kit with the aim of making Will a birth sampler. I spent the next few years engrossed in cross stitching until, for some unknown reason, I decided I wanted to make a cushion cover. I borrowed my mom’s machine and acquired some of her fabric and I was away. I soon purchased my own machine and progressed beyond cushions to making clothes for Bella. Every item I have made has taught me something new and with each creation my skills improve.
Below is a selection of items I have already made;
I hope to share new items with you, mistakes and triumphs, and hopefully share some tips along the way.
