I’ve treated myself to a day of playing with fabric and exploring my new (to me) book, Sister Sampler Quilts, by AnneMarie Chany. I found it at the library’s used book store for $2! So far I’ve made Grandmother’s Frame, Contrary Wife, and two versions of Friendship Star. My fingers were itching to get stitching! #patchworkblocks #patchworkfun #friendshipstarblock #grandmothersframequiltblock #contrarywifeblock #sistersamplerquilts #annemariechany #saturdaysareforsewing #friendsbookcellar

Second finished project of the day; my first ever #ogdencami! Used some more of the khaki tencel twill from The Fabric Room that I made my Esther trousers in. I see why people make so many of these now, it was so quick to do! Also cannot recommend this tencel twill enough, it's sandwashed so it has a loovely finish and it was super cheap (but you have to buy a minimum of 3m and last time I looked there weren't many colours left...)

Before I learned how to sew (but when I really wanted to learn how to) I went over to @loisanddot ‘s house and she showed me around her sewing area and went over a few basics with me. I remember seeing the smallest bits of fabric and was so curious as to why she’d save them?! And while I now know that the possibilities for scrap pieces are endless, I still always think of you, Tiffany when I stack them! I used my current quilt scraps to make the cutest little spool plate today!! It’s so darling I could cry!! 💜 #featherweight221 #cyndi #saturdaysareforsewing

So, how duvet like does this dress look??! 😉 Yes, honest opinions, please. 😆 I got the urge to sew something, so decided to throw together a dress for Deborah this morning while she was out at their Young Archeologist group. (Making the most of the quiet with the 3 middle kids being out. 😂) Anyway, she requested a blue dress 👗 recently and I remembered I had half of a blue duvet in my fabric stash. 😁 When I was finishing my quilt last year I bought a clearance £7 super king size duvet from ASDA. One side went as quilt back and I was left with this fabric from the reverse side. Abigail made herself pj bottoms with some and still plenty for this dress (and more left over fabric remains). Bargain fabric, that's for sure. 👍 #sewingfun #sewlittletimetosew #sewingoverhousework #sewing #lovetosew #sewingforkids #sewingforgirls #sewingmama #makeyourownclothes #sewingkidsclothes #mumlife #mamatimeout #motherhood #lifewithsevenkids #mamalife #quicksewingproject #saturdaysareforsewing #motherhoodunfiltered #motherhoodunplugged #reallifemotherhood #motherhoodthroughinstagram

Saturdays are for sewing for my own own tribe!!! Not always.. but I always sew a “test” garment when I’m trying out a new pattern for the first time. My kids get the prototypes or the “not so perfect” stuff 😅😄. Check out this ADORABLE beatbox romper from @ellieandmac_patterns. I just adore this unisex hooded style! What do you think? Yay, or nah?

All you need for a great weekend is a comfy seat & a quilting project!

It’s Saturday and it’s my monthly sewing club 🧵 I picked up some fabric whilst I was in London @libertylondon and I cannot wait to use it! I went for something a little less girlie than these so Tom can live with it and I’ll post it when I’m finished! I’ve always loved these vintage prints and they finally seem to be coming back in fashion. Does anyone else have anything in a Liberty Print?

Not the greatest lighting for a picture, but I am in LOVE with how these shirts for my girls turned out! I have one very girly daughter who loves everything glitter, unicorns, rainbows, etc. and one who is "okay" with pink and treats, but not so much unicorns. I only had scraps of the patterned fabrics from a scrap pack, so I had to be creative with the pattern pieces.  #jmlmade2018 #patternsforpirates #favtee #surgefabricshop #dreamseamsfabric #latenightsewing #saturdaysareforsewing

Spending some time working on this quilt top I started over a decade ago with fabric I inherited after my godmother passed. It’s so funky and I can’t wait to picnic on it. 😍 Also, this quilt is a testament to the fact that I love doing quilt tops but suck at finishing them. @jenna_darsee I promise yours won’t take a decade. Maybe half of one. 😂😂 #saturdaysareforsewing #vintagefabric

Today I bought the last meter of this lovey light blue stretch woven fabric (for $3!) with the intention of making a pair of pants... I think I have made a tight enough marker to make it work but it took some creative pattern making!  #markermaking #isewmyownclothes #saturdaysareforsewing #sewityourself #makeityourself #selfmade #selbstgemacht #ichnähemeinekleidungselbst #nähenmachtglücklich #fashiondesign #fashiondesigner #purestform #purestformdesign #creativepatternmaking

Had a lovely sewing day at @escape_and_create_uk - thank you to @the_pear_shaped_stitcher for organising! It was great to meet some new local sewing faces ☺️ As usual I did far more chatting than sewing!
