Sewing Patterns

Find details of my my jargon-free, simple-to-make bag patterns below. I hope to add more practical sewing patterns to my range in due course. Don’t forget to check out my free sewing patterns and complete sewing kits too.

I also blog about quick sewing projects that don’t need a whole pattern, such as how to make a child’s nightdress out of an adult t-shirt. You’ll also often find pictures of quick sewing projects and visible mending on my Instagram.

My patterns contain full details on sourcing and recycling second-hand fabric from old clothes, bedlinen, etc, so no expensive fabric is necessary. You don’t even need a sewing machine if you are using a lightweight fabric!
