PLANETARYkindness, JUSTweight and APEXlove!!

It has been an incredibly busy few months here. The APEXsewalong was amazing!! Thank you to everyone who took part! There was a wonderful response to the You Tube videos and such amazing APEXcarry bags were made during the sewalong.

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!!

PLANETARYsewalong – STAGE 4

We’re in full Planetary swing now and this post will go through Steps 9, 10 and 11 of the main Planetary Backpack tutorial which will bring us up as far as getting the outer bag assembled!

PLANETARYsewalong – STAGE 3

Let the real fun begin!
This post will follow Steps 5-8 of the main Planetary Backpack tutorial, and will talk through how I added piping to both the Front Mountain Panel and the Front Flap.

PLANETARYsewalong – STAGE 2

Fabrics selected? Interfacing options figured out? Hacks decided? Well let’s get going so!
This Stage 2 post of the PLANETARYsewalong will focus on prepping & cutting out your fabric, applying any interfacing and working as far as Step 4 of the Planetary Backpack tutorial.

Ready for SUNrise?

A really quick post to give you a little sneak peek and to let you know that the SUNrise, the next pattern in the SUNseries, is nearly ready to go and will be released this Saturday, 5th June 2021!


I know I’m not so good at keeping in touch here on the blog, but I hope to change that and let you know about all the releases, testing calls, discounts and giveaways here! To start as I mean to go forward; you should keep an eye out for all the tester makes and giveaways over on Insta, starting on Thursday 3rd June!

The SUNrise is a versatile pouch pattern. It comes in two heights, cropped and tall, with LOTS of options. It has a simple modern aesthetic with a circular graphic forming a PiecedSUN, a Front Pocket SUNflap or a Fold Over SUNflap. It can be made as a simple pouch but offers lots of playful options and SUNhackability!



And because I know we all love a bit of matching, the SUNrise has of course been designed to sit neatly into a MidnightSUN bag.

To celebrate the release of the SUNrise pattern there will also be a store wide sale starting on Thursday 3rd June, along with the release giveaway fun!! OK, time for me to get back to the final pattern tweaks and tutorial adjustments!!

See you on the 5th June!
