A Tablet Case

If I wasn’t already quilting my way through a book, I would be tempted to make every project in Anna Graham’s book Handmade Style, I love this book! This quick project is my second from the book and I know I’ll be making more. If you have the book you might have noticed that I left the […]

Rainbow Clutch

This month it’s Deb’s turn to receive pressies in our birthday club swap.  I made her the Rainbow Clutch from Anna Graham’s beautiful book ‘Handmade Style’.

My family are staying behind, my parents and in-laws […]

It’s school holidays here so there’s not a lot of sewing going on but I did make a drawstring bag just for me today. The Joel Dewberry fabric is one I purchased on a whim while on holiday earlier this year, I love the colours and the large design makes it perfect for a bag. I used […]
