This will be a quick post between lunch and heading out into the rain for some fresh air! Not on my bike today, but for all those Christmas bikes I thought it would be a good time to publish the TrapINI Bike Bag Hack.
A versatile bag pattern with a modern, relaxed, asymmetric aesthetic that comes in two sizes – TrapBEAG (small) and TrapMOR (large), with three style options; tote, crossbody and backpack.
Such an exciting day for me to be able announce that my first PDF pattern is about to be released! I had been working away on another pattern when the opportunity to submit a pattern to be published in the upcoming issue of One Thimble Digital Sewing Magazine arose.
I have been wanting to add some ruffles to a garment for my littlest for a while so thought it would be interesting to make the signature square bib of the Max Tee into a rounded one and add some very un-Misusu ruffles!!
I’ve been working away here quietly and late into the night for a while now, and have a lot left to do, but shortly I will be putting a call out for pattern testers for my very own backpack pattern!!!
You know at this stage that I love a bit of pattern testing and these days I’m finding it hard to squeeze in some sewing for myself so when a pattern that seemed to have been designed for ME was in need of testing my hand went up straight away!!
As a thank you to their valued newsletter subscribers, One Thimble have sent this design out in their newsletter as an exclusive Christmas themed appliqué. I can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with!!
A couple of months ago One Thimble Digital Sewing Magazine put out a call for sewists/bloggers to contribute to their Issue 22 (out tomorrow, 13th November) in the form of tutorials/hacks. I thought I’d give it a shot and applied, and here we are! Well, it would be more correct to say over there we are…
It appears that I have developed not one but two new addictions. The “quilt as you go” technique is so easy and satisfying, resulting in a beautifully textured piece of fabric. A wonderful way to use up scraps and to play with colours and textures.
I’m delighted to have jumped out of my comfort zone into a skirt that has made me feel pretty much as good as I’ve felt in my own skin since I got married.
