APEXsewalong Stage 1

Stage 1 of the APEXsewalong is live with a video posted up on my brand spanking new YouTube channel! Can’t say I ever thought I’d have a YouTube channel… “Mammy, just don’t say “Welcome to my YouTube channel!”” I was warned!

#APEXsewalong!

The APEXcarry has been a hugely popular pattern and, with the first stage starting on the 14th April, I’m going to host a fun sewalong in week-by-week stages to get us all summer-bag-ready here in the northern hemisphere!!

Simply Sewing the MidnightSUN

Back at the end of last year I was delighted to be asked by Simply Sewing Magazine if they could publish one of my patterns. What a wonderful opportunity! We agreed on publishing a version the MidnightSUN bag. The magazine was on the shelves yesterday, 17th March, which also happened to be St. Patrick’s Day!

APEXcarry coming soon…

APEXpouch Pattern Release

A really quick post to let you all know that the APEXpouch pattern has been released (shh I’m telling the rest of the world tomorrow, Saturday 27th November!) There will be giveaways happening over on Instagram, hosted by myself and a gang of wonderful testers over the next few days. Keep an eye out for #APEXpouch and #APEXgiveaway!


The APEXpouch is a versatile pouch pattern that comes in two sizes, small and large, with two main closure options; the Drawstring APEX and the Zipped APEX.

The small and large APEXpouches are sized to take a 20cm or 30cm closed ended zip. It has a simple modern aesthetic with angled outer pockets that can be secured with a snap & loop closure, a simple snap closure or subdivided with a line of stitching. 


The perfect pattern for a purse, clutch, small project bag, a wash bag or make-up bag. It’s clean, modern aesthetic will show off your gorgeous fabric beautifully and is perfect for colour blocking fun.

The APEXpouch and all other patterns (including the already great value bundles!) will be on sale with a 20% discount until Wednesday 1st December! Pop over the In Complete Stitches ETSY store to get your copy!!

It has angled outer pockets that can be secured with a snap & loop closure, a simple snap closure or with a line of stitching. Additionally, the large sized APEX comes with options for internal pockets allowing you to choose to add a 20cm zipped welt pocket and/or a subdivided angled pocket.

Tomorrow I will show you some of the wonderful pouches made during testing, but for now goodnight!! xx Sarah
