Featured!

With excitement building around Love at First Stitch, I've been lucky to have been featured in some lovely magazines recently...



I made this project tutorial for Mollie Makes. It's a variation idea for one of the patterns in the book, the Megan dress, or you can add it to another top or shift dress. I love the design of the title and washi tape that the magazine added!



This interview for Making magazine was a lot of fun - I met the journalist in a Brixton Village cafe, we chatted for ages and ended up going food shopping together at the market. Ooh and yes, these are sneaky peeks of some of the patterns in the book!


The back page of Homemaker magazine has a piece about my home - everything from my love of Expedit to DIY fails (think Chuckle Brothers).


Last but not least, have you seen the new UK magazine Love Sewing? In the first issue I share an insight into the process of designing and producing the patterns for the book, my love of indie pattern companies, and how sewing blogs and my blog readers keep me inspired. The rest of the magazine includes lots of sewing news, some really cute projects, and a free dress pattern download. I have high hopes for this magazine!


Have you read any great craft magazines recently?

  2. Wow! That's impressive! Congratulations on being featured! Did you do photoshoots just for the magazines or are these tutorials and photos of you extracts from your new book?

  20. I can't wait to get my hadns on some of the magazines, I was wondering how good they would be, but from this I think I would find them really interesting. Hoping the be able to join your party if I can find material for the Brigette Scarf, you make things seem so easy!
