Let’s make stuff! That’s been our mantra all month at Simply Sewing HQ. And, as you’ll see from this issue, we’ve been busy doing just that. Take a peek inside and see the fresh looks we’re bringing you and your home in issue 6.
There’s no better way to give your home a makeover than by adding flourishes of fabric to each room. See our easy sews for the home this month: embellish a tea towel, make bolster and bench cushions, a tissue box cover, toilet roll holder, cover storage boxes and make a motivational wall banner.
Your free gifts this month: faux suede fabric and a project booklet with ways to use it. You can embellish a top with pockets, jazz up a jacket with elbow patches, create a pretty collar necklace or sew a Japanese knot wrist bag.
But that’s not even the half of it, other sewing patterns include:
• Lisa Comfort’s tulip skirt pattern (Part 2 of the #SimplySewalong – join in!)
• Stitch family hand prints on an embroidery hoop
• Gorgeous girl’s dress
• Fat quarter bento bag
• Denim pocket organiser
• Refashion pinstripe shirts into a feminine top
• Fabric toy building blocks
• Children’s teepee tent
We also have a few good reads for you! Meet Kate Smith from The Makery, crafty bloggers share their tips and Leanne Garrity of Chi Chi Dee Handmade shares her favourite sewing thing.
