Ethy's new pj bottoms

Sorry I've been away for a while!  Life gets a bit hectic now and again and doesn't leave you with much time to sew!

Well I've gone and got myself the Toyota Super Jeans 15 sewing machine as I wanted a heavy duty machine to withstand my new hobby of wanting to make clothes and to take up jeans lol!

My first sewing project on my new beastie was the lovely football themed pj's for my eldest son Ethan and he was so excited to get them on and has constantly worn them since 2pm this afternoon and he is in bed now with them on bless him

I'd used the Simplicity 2742 pattern which I picked up for a £1 in a sewing shop in Doncaster and the cotton fabric that is 60" wide was a steal from leeds market at 4.95 for 1 metre! So I was definitely onto a winner here

Have a fabulous weekend!

Margot pajama bottoms!

Yeah!!! Finally got round to completing the Margot Pajama bottoms from Love at First Stitch using my fab cat stretchy jersey fabric from Fabric Land in Bristol whilst on our hols a couple of weeks ago.

To say I'm a sewing novice I handled the stretch of this fabric real well after getting the tension and stitch length sorted lol!

The jersey gives the pj's a nice drape to them and uber comfy!! What is even better that they fit my short legs perfectly as I adjusted the pattern to fit me whilst tracing it out.

I'm now sat chilling in them they are just fab!!

Happy sewing!

Bow Belt!

Yay! I'm getting back into this sewing lark! Now I've made Bow Belt from 
Tilly's Love at First Stitch Book! 

I'd thought I'd go for the neon yellow cotton fabric to go with my Navy Duck Dress for a bit of quirk. 

If you haven't heard of Tilly and her amazing yet simple patterns head on over to 
Tilly's Blog you won't be disappointed!

Ta Ta for now!!
