- I had a lovely few hours @sew_in_the_city today teaching these 5 lovely eager students how to make the Derwent trousers from my book Beginner's Guide to Sewing with Knitted Fabrics. They were all super happy (and a few a bit surprised) that they were going home with comfortable, well-fitting trousers that they wanted to wear. Just some hems and elastic to finish, not bad for 4.5 hrs work! 👏👏👏Obviously my trip to @fabworksmillshop today yielded treasure ❤ top down: #heartofhuddersfield Pumpkin Wine Yorkshire Melton, Evening Mist Marled Melton, Thunderbridge Storm Marled Melton and Cross Hatch Sketch viscose/rayon lining. Their Heart of Huddersfield collection is a beautiful thing to behold. You really can't find that kind of quality wool, woven in Huddersfield at those prices anywhere else. I don't think they'll be around for long.......🍂🍁🍃 A/W sewing plans are go!!@songofthesewingmachine has 100% hit the early autumn sweetspot with this outfit featuring a dreamy #kindercardigan. Take a look at Josie's feed for more beautiful photos and details of how she made this super thrifty outfit ❤🧡💛👈 #destashsale in my stories right now and this is up for grabs along with a few other books and some top notch quality wool fabric......

My baby sleeping bag was a featured project in the May issue (no. 13) of Love Sewing magazine. It’s easier to make than you might think and makes a great gift for a new arrival.
Unfortunately the pattern pieces were left off the pull-out pattern sheets! But you can download them by clicking on the image above.
As they’re only little, they’re not going to use up all your printer ink or paper….
Yesterday was the first “Sewing for Babies and Kids” workshop and I was very impressed with the end results.
Tania used a pattern she’d bought and after much battling to fit the pattern into not quite enough fabric, caught up brilliantly and went home with just some elastic to put into the neckline and the hem to sew. Incidentally, this is the first thing Tania’s made from a pattern and she only started sewing in September when I saw her for a one-to-one session to learn how to use her sewing machine. Impressed!
I’ll definitely be running this workshop again next year and here’s some of the other patterns available to use:
