I’m Helen, a craft lover who hopes one day to have an entirely handmade wardrobe. I love to sew and knit my own clothes and love trying out new patterns and supporting independent pattern designers. Not only that I also like to design my own knitting patterns too. I often find that the item I am picturing in my head when I dream up a new project is not always available as a pattern and so I have decided to create my own patterns!

Here on my blog you will be able to follow along with my adventures in creating my handmade wardrobe with lots of lovely pictures of the outfits I sew as well as reviews of the patterns and fabric. I will also introduce you to my knitted accessories and share with you my new knitting patterns as they become available (via Ravelry).

HsHandcrafts is also a shop on Etsy – here you can also find my knitting patterns available as pdf downloads as well as my handmade accessories. I love making accessories so much that often I have too many to know what to do with so this is your chance to snap them up!

If you want to keep up with what I am doing in between blog posts and catch all the insider info on my newest makes and designs then you can keep up with me day to day through all of the usual social media channels! In particular you can keep up with my daily snaps of my new designs and progress on Instagram, I’d love to see you there!
