Sewing machine bag

By Clare Albans / 06 Jun 2015

A little while back I made a cover for my sewing machine (click here to see that post) and it has been brilliant for keeping my machine super clean! But because I don’t have a craft room, I have to move it around. A lot. It would be helpful to do this without having to…

By Clare Albans / 28 May 2015

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been working on my dress for the Simplicity blogger challenge – and (with only a couple of days to spare) I have finished. Phew! When I heard about the challenge I knew I’d have to give it a go, and had an idea of what I wanted to do…

Fabric drawer inserts

By Clare Albans / 28 Jan 2015

Ok, so there’s still time to get a few things organised in January for the year ahead (well, just about!), and one thing that I’m never very organised with is my drawers. They are kind of like Monica’s closet on Friends, in that I generally just shove stuff in them but I’m then appalled by…

Sewing machine cover

By Clare Albans / 16 Oct 2014

I spotted this amazing fabric about a week ago and immediately began thinking about what I could possibly make with it in order to justify buying it (know that feeling too?!). Then I read a post on Tilly Walnes’ blog about keeping sewing machines dust free, and decided that it would be perfect as a sewing…

Fabric covered letters

By Clare Albans / 20 Mar 2014

I’ve seen lots of fabric covered letters around recently and have wanted to have a go myself – this weekend I finally got around to it! It is a project that you could complete on an evening after work (if you need a weeknight craft fix, as I often do!) and would make a great…
