On adding thumbholes to your sweaters…

So I thought I’d get this post out sooner rather than later as I know there are a lot of you out there who are making sweaters at the moment and just in case someone might want to use this tutorial this month! I am a big fan of thumbholes in long sleeved sweaters. I remember as […]

Mini project 4: Felted pillows

Merry Christmas everyone! Hope everyone is feeling festive! Here’s my most recent mini project/ Xmas gift idea: felted cushion covers!

I made another Phaedra Drape from Ralph Pink though this time I chucked the instructions and did my own. (You can see my first attempt here). It came out so much better! I used this tie dyed blue fabric (it looks like clouds!) for it – it has a lovely drape to it and worked […]

How I photograph my makes!

So I thought this would be an interesting topic to cover and to see how everyone else does it! My aim when I shoot my makes is to have everything as clear as possible and for the clothes to look the best they can. I’m lucky that I live by myself so that I can […]
