I made some reusable wipes. Old pyjamas and my new overlocker FTW! Only made a few for now as I’m trying to figure out the best way to chain a load together to avoid using loads of thread. . . . . . #sustainable #reusablewipes #sustainablesewing #sewyourselfsustainable #reducereuserecycle #sustainability #reuse #refashion #upcycle #overlocker #handmadeisbetter #instahandmade #handmadelife #mysustainablelife

I finally organised my pattern stash and it makes me soooo happy ๐Ÿ˜Š it’s also made me realise how many patterns I have! ๐Ÿ™ˆ I’ve saved the process to my highlights under “organisation” if you want to see what I started with and how I got here. #patternstash #stash #sewyourstash #hoarder #organization #myorganizedlife #orderisrestored #bookshelf #mysewinglife #sewing #sewistsofinstagram #sewobsessed #sewcialists #ilovesewing

So my first free tee is done and up on the blog if you want to read my review! I chose to tackle the Stellan tee first as it is one of the most popular free tee patterns out there – I see loads of them popping up on my Instagram feed and I hear lots of people recommending it as a good basic tee pattern. Pattern: the Stellan tee by @frenchnavynow_ Fabric : grey Jersey from @poundfanrics #HSewsFreeTees #b36w30h39 #thestellantee #frenchnavypatterns #poundfabrics #diystyle #memade #handmadeclothes #handmadeclothing #handmadewardrobe #memadewardrobe #imakemyownclothes #diyootd #memadeeveryday #wearhandmade #fashionfeelsfabulous #sewingcommunity #sewersgonnasew #sewistsofinstagram #sewcreative #sewcialist #sewcialists #ilovesewing #dressmakingismysuperpower #sewobsessed #diydressmaker #sewingismytherapy #mywonderfulworldofsewing #imakemyclothes #imakemyownclothes

Before I jump straight in to trying out loads of new patterns on my new coverlock machine I wanted to test the waters first with a simple pattern that I am familiar with – the Peak tee from @thatwendyward book “sewing with Knitted Fabrics”. I love how quickly this tee comes together and the simple style is just ๐Ÿ‘Œmy new machine sewed like a dream! Also, it allows me to hop straight on board with @vladivos and @timetosew challenge #sewyourbooks #peaktee #peaktshirt #sewingwithknits #b36w30h39 #thehandmadeparade #handmadeparade #sewingcommunity #sewersgonnasew #sewistsofinstagram #sewcreative #sewcialist #sewcialists #sewobsessed #sewyourown #sewingfun #sewsewsew #seamstresslife #sewingismytherapy #mywonderfulworldofsewing #imakemyclothes #imakemyownclothes #diystyle #memade #handmadewardrobe #memadewardrobe #imakemyownclothes #diyootd #memadeeveryday #wearhandmade

For Christmas, my amazing parents got me the most wonderful gift I could imagine – a brand new Pfaff Coverlock machine! To allow me to practice using this fabulous machine and ease myself gently back into sewing after a few months break I have decided that I will make myself some basic tees! Because I am new to the world of overlocking and coverstitching I don’t want to break the bank on masses of new patterns so I have decided to stick to free patterns, and it turns out there are A LOT to choose from. So I have compiled a list of the free t-shirt sewing patterns on my blog. I will add the link to my bio. Over the coming weeks/months I will endeavour to make a few of these (I can’t promise I will get through them all) and let you know what I think. It’s time to find out if these free patterns are worth the investment(!) I will let you know when I have tried each of them but in the meantime, I’d love to know if there are any you have tried already and what you thought – also please let me know if there are any I have missed and I will add them to the list! #HSewsFreeTees #pfaffcoverlock #pfaffingaround #overlocker #coverlocker #coverstitch #sewingtees #freesewingpattern #sewingcommunity #sewersgonnasew #sewistsofinstagram #sewcreative #sewcialist #sewcialists #ilovesewing #dressmakingismysuperpower #sewobsessed #sewyourown #sewingfun #sewsewsew #seamstresslife #diydressmaker #sewingismytherapy #mywonderfulworldofsewing #imakemyclothes #imakemyownclothes

New Year’s sort out! This year I don’t plan on taking part in #makenine2020 or really putting any plans /resolutions in place. Having been unwell for the last few months and unable to sew has made me just want to get back to it, in whatever form that takes. I can see some simple, quick, and enjoyable makes in my future with no pressure. I’m just taking things as they come! . . . . . #resewlutions #tidyup #sewingkit #showmeyourthreads #gutermann #sewing #sewistsofinstagram #sewcreative #sewcialist #sewcialists #ilovesewing #dressmakingismysuperpower #sewobsessed #acolourfullife #lifeincolour

Well, it’s not been the year-end I’d hoped for. I’ve spent the last 3 months at home sick with an awful throat infection. A couple of weeks ago after more tests I’m now on thyroid medication and my energy levels are starting to pick up again but I’m still pretty ill. Whilst I’ve been unable to do any sewing these last few months I’ve really enjoyed seeing everyone else’s makes and I’ve taken the time to look back at some of my old makes… Cant wait until I can wear some of these out of the house again! For now here is my #topnine2019 based on your likes 1. #rangebackpack @noodlehead531 2.

Can you believe its already the first of November! Time flies! I’ve been bundled up in a blanket feeling sorry for myself for the whole of October and really wishing this tonsillitis would go away ๐Ÿ˜ญ so for day 1 of #bpsewvember I thought I’d say hello with a picture of me looking a little less worse for wear in my newest makes (a few months old now) SOS pants and an ogden cami. Who else is taking part this week – I’d love a distraction and some lovely new sewing friends ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ . . . . . #sewingcommunity #sewersgonnasew #sewistsofinstagram #sewcreative #sewcialist #sewcialists #ilovesewing #dressmakingismysuperpower #sewobsessed #sewyourown #sewingfun #sewsewsew #seamstresslife #diydressmaker #sewingismytherapy #mywonderfulworldofsewing #imakemyclothes #imakemyownclothes #makersgonnamake #makerlife #makersgonnashare
