This project started of as a test garment for McCalls 7387, which was an utter fail. If it hadn't been for the nice print and a perfect button placket, made using a new technique, I would have given up. With a bit of pattern tetris, I was able to transform it into a blouse that I love ..read more

The ‘fabric’ for this bag was woven with strips of plastic for mail satchels. It was woven on the same warp as the first bag that I made using plastic wrappers for Plastic Free July, last year.  That bag has been carrying home my shopping each week as is holding up well.  It’s quirkiness still ..read more

Project plan:  Sinclair patterns Gaia Keyhole top with Sunset Lounge pant patterns.  Fabrics are a printed cotton-lycra knit & denim look recycled poly knit I was immediately drawn to the design of the Gaia Keyhole Top by Sinclair Patterns.  The design of the back is quite unique and a nice variation on a plain knit tank.  Last year I’d downloaded their Sunset Lounge Pant when it was offered as a freebie but hadn’t got around to using it. This was another pattern co that uses the tester promotional model of heaps of tester photos/glowing reviews when a new pattern is released. Usually it ..read more

Project sketch – Designer stitch Donelle Top & Harper pants using cerise rayon knit and handmade buckle I had seen a few of the tester makes of the Donelle Top by Designer Stitch and I’d been tempted by the Harper Pant before. They are a Aussie pattern co, which is nice to see, so I decided to give them a try. Normally I’m a but dubious about seeing heaps of tester photos, all with glowing reviews, when a new pattern is released. They strike me as being more promotional than actually testing the pattern. So many of the Indie pattern companies use this model. Usually, that is a turn-off f ..read more

Something to brighten up a dull day…

Brushtrokes knit I saw this bold bright brushstroke knit at The Remnant Warehouse and just couldn’t resist. Love the lime cotton knit too. Both nice for a pop of colour on a grey day. The wrap knit wasn’t as successful – way to deep in the neckline. The tucked piece doesn’t have enough spread in the pattern piece and distorts the waist seamline. Click to view slideshow ..read more

I wouldn’t call this shopping bag a thing of beauty, but it makes a statement in it’s own way. Plastic-free July This month, I’ve signed up to Plastic Free July, aimed at reducing single-use plastics. Most of the simple things I’m already doing so my challenge is to: reduce usage of tetra-pacs: We’d use 5/week for soy and lactose free milk. make beeswax wraps as an alternative to cling wrap make shopping bags from soft plastic packaging waste Weaving the bag We had been separating out the soft-plastic packaging to drop off at the supermarket for recycling so I had a nice stash of source mat ..read more
