5 new spring looks, 20 home projects + more in issue 41

Spring is in the air, and our sewing machine is ready to go! We’ve packed issue 41 with projects to give our homes and wardrobes a new look for the new season, including the versatile Emma Pinafore pattern and Handmade Home project book with 20 home makes to try. Take a peek inside the issue…

Issue 41’s The Emma Pinafore is the transitional garment our spring wardrobes have been waiting for! This feminine take on a utility style is perfect for layering with everything from cosy knits to favourite tees and features a V-neck bodice, gathered details, a wide waistband and two pocket styles and skirt lengths. We’ll be stitching one for every day of the week.
