Creative makes & inspiration

Love to sew clothes adding a twist or a trim 🎀😋Love colour, textiles and dogs 🐶 I used to be a textile artist making quirky 🐶pictures.Love fun things😁

I designed my own @converse to go with my 🌈#handmadewardrobe It’s such alot of fun, you can choose all kinds of colour combos, laces, labels etc 😀 I’m wearing all the bright colours in my @heyjunehandmade #kendrickoveralls trousers and @cocowawacrafts #chestnutsweater #colourlover #conversebyme #conversestyle #converseshoes #mustardandlilac #brightsewing #oldmakesnewways #indiepatterns #diyootd
Sew I’m jumping in with my entry for #sewtogetherforsummer challenge 😀I jumped for joy when my #patternhack of #breakingthepattern #solinadress and #newlook6509 worked and fitted 😀 I also added a me touch with some stripy grosgrain 🎀 @vvrouleaux and a ‘quickrelease’ ribbon pull on my zipper for easy on and off moments 😂 I used a sparkly pink linen @minervacrafts from my stash and added silver bias binding to the neckline instead of the collar😋I procrastinated for ever and couldn’t find a pattern that felt me, so after reading @sewsarahsmith blog and @sewing_in_spain jumpsuit hacks, decided to just jump on the bandwagon and sew😁I do like it, so comfy and feels kind of fun😋 My question @sewing_in_spain for my next one is should I move the bodice or trouser darts so they both align? Because it fitted so well ( doesn’t happen often 😂) I didn’t want to move them😉🙈Thanks for inspiring me to take part in this challenge @sewing_in_spain @sewsarahsmith @rocco.sienna #sewingchallenge #jumpsuit #sewmuchfun #patternhack #patternhacking #indiepatterns #sewistsofinstagram #sew #diyfashion #handmadewardrobe #sewover50 #memadeeveryday #memadewardrobe #lovebows #isewmyownclothes #sewingjumpsuits #handmade #ilovesewing #seamstress #imadethis #vvrcreations

Really looking forward to going to @threadfestival at Farnham Maltings on Saturday😁We’re making a weekend of it, 🐶🐶too! My husband’s going to walk them in the park and do the river walk, whilst I go 🛍🛍🛍😀I wonder if I will meet anyone from IG?I’ve only ever met the lovely @dorset_meet_up sewists in real life 😁#thread2019 #sewing #sewingevent #textileevent #fabrics #sewistsofinstagram
It’s a wrap from my scrap, well @sewoverit #soicocooncoat using #sewingleftovers #sewmystash . This is my#magamsewalong may mash up coat and I really like how it’s turned out and it’s my first coat 😀I used yellow linen/cotton leftovers from my Ninot jacket and 1m remnant of Kokka brush paint cotton fabric@thedrapersdaughter from my stash. I broke the rules and cut the back piece across the grain so the border runs along the hem, rather than along the selvedge and left off the collar😋Interlining all the pieces has given it structure and the black hem on the undersleeves was a piece sewn on to lenghten them. I totally made it up as I went along, used a cotton fabric from my stash for lining and then found just enough satin for the sleeves so it slips off 😁Thank you for inspiring me @sewing_in_spain @suestoney @hportemanteau I think using leftovers makes me more creative. No neon or silver needed as I felt the fabrics were enough😎#sewingchallenge #makemystash #fabricremnants #indiepatterns #indiesewing #sewmuchfun #sewoveritlondon #soishowoff #sewoveritpatterns #handmadewardrobe #memademay2019 #sewistsofinstagram #sewersofinstagram #sewover50 #sewmuchfun #memadewardrobe #handmadewardrobe #imadethis #diyfashion #brightsewing #ilovesewing #coatmaking
Today’s #ooftd #mmmay19 was @ninaleelondon #carnabydress and a very old rtw linen jacket which I love because of the little details and trims. I’ve not worn these together before, but liked the grey and green together 😀I wore my @pinkcoatclub #memade necklace and heart pin too and took my #orlakiely bag shopping to our local small town Sherborne in Dorset.I have decided I’d like to make more jackets for my #memadewardrobe and have another#carnaby dress planned as I love this comfy 👗 and how you can add a twist with colour or an appliqué 🌸#memademay2019 #memadeeveryday #handmadewardrobe #sewistsofinstagram #sewover50 #sewme #sewersofinstagram #indiepatterns #ninaleepatterns #shiftdress #linendress #linenjacket #greenandgrey #summersonitsway
This is my May mash up idea for#magamsewalong hosted by @sewing_in_spain @suestoney @hportemanteau I’m going to make #soicocooncoat using leftover yellow fabric from a jacket, a remnant of Kokka brush paint fabric and a dash of neon or silver or both!😋 My theme this year is sewing my stash,will also find a lining too😀It will involve imaginative pattern cutting and the usual method of making it up as I go along 😋🤞#sewingchallenge #sewistsofinstagram #sewingismysuperpower #happysewing #sewover50 #sewersofinstagram #sewmuchfun #sewme #sewingmystash #creativesewing #sewingleftovers #sewingremnants #makingitupasigoalong #memademay2019
#memade #ootd 😊Had a confidence wobble last week re trouser making, deleted my last post & mmmay pledge and took time out 🙈☺️Thank you for lovely comments on my deleted post, but my trousers didn’t fit well and I felt 😔Sew, like a dog with a bone I unpicked for the third time!🤪, made another new waistband and wore them out happily out to lunch today😊I’ve learnt sew much, made a dart in centre back waistband, and let out hips ☺️Outfit is@heyjunehandmade #kendrickoveralls trousers and a woven @grainlinestudio #lindensweatshirt hack#indiepatterns #memademay2019 #sewingismysuperpower #trousersewing #mystyle #lovesewing #sewover50 #sewistsofinstagram #sewersofinstagram #slowsewing #happysewing
#memademay2019 This is my favourite #memade outfit I’ve worn on our holiday in Suffolk this week @seamworkmag #astoriasweater @mccallpatternuk #mccalls7022 skirt. Both were #stitched with a twist incorporating #fabric scraps for appliqué, ribbing scraps for neckline and waistband and ribbon trim on skirt for fun😋It’s a combo I’ve not worn together before, the #astoriasweater works so well with a yoke skirt as I’m all about comfort and don’t like things tight or tucked in😀🌈🎨💙The photo was taken in Southwold and it was so fun choosing what colour beach hut to stand in front of😁🌈Thanks to @sozoblog for hosting #memademay #indiepatterns #memadeeveryday #handmadewardrobe #sewmuchfun #sewme #colourlovers #mystyle #lovesewing #handmadefashion #sewersofinstagram #sewistsofinstagram #sewover50 #brightsewing #handmadewardrobe #imadethis
