New Look Bow Belt Tutorial

Just a quickie today to let you know that I've updated one of the most popular posts on the blog, How to Make a Bow Belt, with new text and gorgeous images. The pics I took for the original version of the post back in 2010 were pretty shoddy (cringe), but luckily Arielle shot some gorgeous new ones for the tutorial in my book. Yay! (All the other projects in the book are new, in case you're wondering.) Head on over to take a peek, and share the post with everyone you've ever met.

I'm teaching the bow belt to stitching novices at the Village Haberdashery in West Hampstead next Tuesday as it happens, if you know anyone who wants to learn to sew.

In other sewing school news, thanks for the fantastic response to the workshops at Tilly Towers! I know quite a few people were disappointed not to get a place on Copy Your Clothes, as it sold out in just a few hours. We've had so many emails about it that we're most probably going to run it a couple more times, so if you want to be put on the waiting list for a place, please drop us a line on hello {at} tillyandthebuttons.com. There are a few places left on the other classes if you fancy getting down with some new stitching skillz... just one place left for Sewing Knits: Make a Coco at the time of writing though!

What are you sewing this weekend, please? I'm in two minds about whether to finish my playsuit - it's pretty cold here in London now! I'm not one to stack up UFOs*, but I'm dreaming about snuggly knitwear and Autumnal skirts, so I might have to put it on hold until next Summer...
