I have always been a grafter, and please not confuse that with hustler. I have over the years taught myself many skills which at times has helped me to make ends meet. One such skill is sewing. Now I can’t make a dress or a skirt for toffee but what I can do is make interior soft furnishings. From simple cushions and throws to curtains and swags and tails, though not so fashionable now I’ve made it all. So this section of the blog is here for those wanting to get into sewing with projects and ‘How To’s’ a plenty for you to sift through.
And it doesn’t matter if you are a beginner and a complete novice or you know your way around a sewing machine there should be something here for everyone. From simple envelope cushions to making your own lampshades and everything in between. Here I collate, collect and curate all projects both sewing and fabric related.
