You may remember this wax print from my Port Douglas trip last year. I bought it from a craft market stall on the marina, proving I really can add to my fabric stash just about everywhere I go. I had been saving it up for something special and the Melbourne Frocktails was the perfect event,… [Continue Reading]
How quickly should fabric enter your house and exit your stash before it isn’t counted as a stash enhancement anymore? If immediately is the answer than this ponte definitely doesn’t count as stash! I bought it from Tessuti on a complete whim when I was already feeling pretty guilty about how much fabric I own. So… [Continue Reading]
I have a new post up over at Stitch 56! This time I made the Tilly and the Buttons Bettine dress and I’m in love with how easy this thing was. To save time I did a big photo session of all my latest makes so I’m hoping I should have a few more posts… [Continue Reading]

That’s not because I haven’t been sewing, I have kept a good project a week pace on average in the last month, but between family visitors, an increasing workload and the start of a new college year I’ve been too busy to photograph any… [Continue Reading]
I have a new post over at Stitch 56! We had the theme ‘sewing for loved ones’ this time around and I made my partner the Strathcona Henley by Thread Theory. Go check it out….
This cardigan has been a long time coming. So long in fact, that it pretty much killed knitting for me last year. It is the Zephyr cardi by Tori Gurbisz and it is designed to be completely seamless, knit top down using a contiguous yoke method. It’s not bad, I love that you can knit… [Continue Reading]
