A brand new weekly sewing linky!

A brand new weekly sewing linky!

 

Today I am launching a brand new weekly link up for British sewing and quilting bloggers. I’ve been looking around the internet for a while and although there seem to be a few linkys for sewers and quilters, they are all international.
I wanted to create something where we can all share our projects and see what Brit bloggers are doing with tools, patterns and fabrics that we can (hopefully) all access within the UK.

Everyone is welcome and the rules are simple. Share a blog post which contains a sewing or quilting project that you are working on or have completed and grab the badge on the right to use in your post so that it links back to this blog. You can take part every week or just when you fancy, whichever suits you.

I’ll kick things off by sharing my make of the week…

The pattern I used for these is Made By Rae Parsley Pants which I altered slightly to give an extra inch on the rise (which I think in retrospect was probably unnecessary.) The fabric is a vintage linen tablecloth which I bought on eBay a few years ago. There are loads for sale and none too expensive. I’ve just bought another, this time a map of Australia, which was £7 including postage.

I’m trying to be good at the moment and use up some of my stash, so I was forced to end my procrastination about what I was going to use the tablecloth for, and I’m glad to say I absolutely love the result! They are long on the leg too, so hopefully Theo will get a couple of summer’s wear out of them.

The boy certainly seems happy with his new kit…

So what’s everyone else has been making?

Loving the shorts. Great bit of recycling. Can’t join in this time as I’ve sewn nothing that interesting as have been focusing on retreat packing.
