Have you guys been watching the Great British Sewing Bee in the UK? I’m loving the contestants this year, even if they’ve followed the stereotypes of TV contestants again! I couldn’t ever attempt some of the garments they make (a robe? a cape?), but I’m definitely feeling more inspired to try some basic sewing when I get a little bit more time. It’s certainly one of the creative areas I’d like to improve on.
After getting a new sewing machine from John Lewis recently, it inspired me to take a look at what is on offer in their extensive haberdashery section!
I have only ever used a digital sewing machine but I do love how easy it is to set up as it automatically sorts the tension for each stitch.
Once I have perfected my skills I was thinking of making some pouches for the shop as I found some really nice Scrabble fabric! What do you think?
I’d love to know what sewing supplies you have on your wish lists or if there are any projects you think would be good for beginners?
