This week I have been sewing up ostomy pouch covers for a friend, I had no need idea there are different shapes and sizes which can make buying covers tricky. It is easy to make your own - on the blog is a “how to”, create your own pattern and sew up some covers, it’s easier than you think (link in profile) #ostomybag #sewing #sewingtutorial #sewingblogger

Morning, sat with a cuppa setting goals for the week 😀 realising I never shared my flat bottom zipper pouch - written and video tutorials in the blog. This one is lined with a curtain shower so it can be used as a wet bag for swimming costumes, in a nappy bag etc...

A day of sewing,  creating new tutorials for the blog. I’m listening to the podcast “theory of content” which is brilliant if you are a blogger, thanks @mediavine and thanks too to @pillarboxblue for recommending it 😀 following the blogging conference last Friday I have so much to do - somehow my site speed optimisation work only seems to have slowed my blog down, bear with me 🤦🏻‍♀️

Loving my diy laptop case, full tutorial on blog and video on you tube (please excuse the amount of shots of the back of my head on the video 🤣 I will get better with practice!). Thanks for whoever donated this particular pair of jeans 😀

Day 2 of #sewyourselfsustainable “pledge” I am committed to buying no RTW items this month, sewing from my stash & refashioning items queuing up - and I may just get my hand on some of hubbies larger clothes for myself 🤔🤣 Thanks @newcrafthouse for the challenge. #sewist #sewsewsew #sewingblogger #sustainability #sustainableliving #slowfashion #memadewardrobe #sustainablelifestyle #sustainablelife

Of my goodness, I wish my sewing room looked like this all the time and not just for blog photos 🤣 repurposed storage, wine crates, an old drawer and sideboard picked up from FB for £5 - I’m travelling home from hols tomorrow, itching to get sewing but suspect the room is extremely untidy like usual! I need to declutter but it is so hard when I love repurposing, my Mum recently gave me her wedding veil ... no idea what to do with that other than stick it in the loft for my daughter, maybe! joining in #seweverydayseptember hosted by @sewisfaction Any suggestions for keeping a tidy sewing room send my way! #makespace #repurpose #reuseupcycle #sewsomething #handmade #memadewardrobe

Hi - so many prompts and thoughts for September, one newsletter I read compared September to the second new year. I have to admit with our family hols coming to an end I am full of resolutions and good intentions. Today I am joining in with two sewers instagram challenges. @sewisfaction #seweverydayseptember and the thought I sew because... because I have to?! It’s so much part of me, how I identify myself, how I express my creativity, if I don’t sew for a while it’s like I have an itch which must be scratched, it’s a stress release. Today I have been hand stitching whilst listening to an audio book. The second challenge I’m joining in is @newcrafthouse #sewyourselfsustainable with the prompt Hello, perhaps I should have started with this prompt first 🤔! I have been sewing/blogging/crafting for approximately 7 years and am passionate about encouraging people to be creative but to also use what they have - my home is full of repurposed jeans, as bags, dresses, curtains, quilt, cushions. I love to upcycle where I can #slowfashion #reuse #upcycle #makersgonnamake #refashion #sewsewsew #sewist #handmadewardrobe

Treated myself to two lengths of fabric at @tissusdesursules The staff were amazing, they made me feel comfortable despite my very awful “pigeon” french - I managed to start with “I am English, small French” But we got through and I have some lovely fabrics. Now to work out what to make 🤔#France #newfabric #makersgonnamake #sewist

So delighted to have joined the Minerva Maker team - this is my first make. I’m deliberately pushing myself with a different fabric and print, and I love the result (just not in windy weather!). You can read all about the skirt and pattern over at @minervadotcom I was gifted the fabric #minervamakes #ad #makersgonnamake #sewist #ilovesewing #handmadewardrobe #memade

Made a start on something.... lovely and freeing to have no plan, just to see where the fabric and stitches lead me #slowstitching #sashiko #handembroidery #makersgonnamake #fabricscraps

Packed some random sewing materials for our holiday, no idea what I am going to make 🤔 but I’m sure it will involve hand stitching inspired by sashiko #sashiko #creativity #handstitching #makersgonnamake #embroidery #useeveryscrapoffabric #useeveryscrap #fabricscraps

New free bag pattern over on the blog - also known as husband 50th birthday present. This bag has two zip pockets and an internal slip pocket, plenty of room for keys, wallet, mobile, sunglasses - he’s using it every day so the design must be right!! Apparently the pocket designed for sea glass collecting on holiday is strictly for his wallet - no sea glass allowed - sea glass has been relegated to the zip pocket in our beach bag designed so we don’t loose our car keys on the beach! #newbagpattern #freebagpattern #freebag #upcycle #denimlove #denim #repurpose #refashion #dontthrowawaydenim #sewingtutorial #sewinglove #bagtutorial #sewingproject
