  • The Half Moon from the Lunar Collection (chriswdesigns)

    I have been admiring the many versions of The Lunar Collection by Chris W Designs for quite a while, and eventually decided to try the medium sized Half Moon version to see how I got on with it as it's a big bag and looked like a long sew. The fabric I wanted to use is an Art Deco print on what may be cotton canvas.  I could find no branding on the selvage.  To contrast with it I chose a plain navy cotton duck, so neither or them were the suggested quilt weight cotton, my bad!  I did cho...

  • A Dog Lover's Bag - A Glenda Convertible Clutch!

    I bought a load of fabrics when I went to visit my cousin last March, and decided it was time to start using some of it.  The first fabric I want to use is this dog print cotton duck canvas fabric by Peter Horton Textiles. I decided to make another Glenda Convertible Clutch.  It is a PDF pattern from Swoon Patterns, and I have made a few before so I know it is a quick and straightforward make.  The instructions are very clear and illustrated with diagrams rather than photos. I spent qui...

  • Sailor's Kit Bag Project

    Last spring I made a Beach Bag for Sue using the Totes Ma Tote pattern by Emmaline Bags in this nautical print cotton canvas and Royal Blue cotton duck canvas.  It looked smart and carried quite a lot inside, and secured with a recessed zipper.

    I am replacing the elastic on 3 king sized fitted sheets for a friend.  What I need to know and cannot find anywhere is how much elastic do I need to thread through the casing?  All of the elastic is worn and stretched out.  I am bleary eyed from searching on google for this information. I need to put this elastic ALL THE WAY AROUND THE SHEETS.  NOT JUST THE CORNERS.  The woman I am doing this for wants the sheets that way and to be honest, all of my sheets are that way as well.  I have n...

  • The Necessary Clutch Wallet Project

    The Necessary Clutch wallet sewing pattern from Emmaline Bags. I bought this pattern in September 2014. Since then I have seen a lot of them on the web, and seen many versions proving it to be a very versatile project so I decided it was time to make one.  I am using fabrics from my stash, the lovely Shibori from Moda (#48004 Awase-Nui) for the exterior and the Michael Miller Sandpipers (#DC7328 Beachcomber) for the lining.  I am using them for the pockets and divider too, and just usin...
