Blouse Sew-a-long Inspiration

 Today's blouse to inspire sewists to join the Simple Blouse free sew along!

This fabulous Michael Miller Fabrics print called Flower Shop is delightful! I added a lace trim to the bottom of this blouse too which adds a nice touch. These only take about 90 mins to make including cutting out the fabric! Give it a go! #sewyourstash

Today's free PDF available on my download website is about fabric cutting! Link at top left of sidebar.

Childhood Memories

In February after my mum died I found my childhood ragdoll whilst sorting through mum's belongings.
She had no clothes and looked a little worse for wear but I was excited to find her. Yesterday I decided to design her a kimono to wear:
It took a couple of tries but I finally got the pattern figured out and made a scrappy prototype, I think I'll make the final one an inch longer but otherwise I'm really happy:
I even tried plaiting embroidery floss for the tie strap and I love the outcome.
I can't wait to make her a final kimono now that I've perfected the pattern!

Organic Hand Dyed Quilt

Earlier this year I hand dyed three batches of Harmony Art Organic Design organic cotton sateen. I used cochineal and turmeric natural dyes and a Rit dye in fuschia. All three dye lots turned out great, so I specially designed this quilt to showcase all three batches together! This organic cotton dyes beautifully I highly recommend dyers give it a try, click on my links tab to find retailers.
