Doggie Raincoat

At this time of year, you never know what the British weather will bring, but that's no reason not to have fun with waterproofs. Amanda Walker's laminated rain coat gives you the perfect chance to stitch with oilcloth and you can even fashion a detachable hood so you're always protected from the elements, rain or shine.

Staple Dress

Staple Dress

A cute staple frock can make a huge impact, especially when you use a bold print. Treat yourself to a make-in-a-day dress in a lightweight cotton or glam it up with a silky drape. With just two pattern pieces and an elasticated waist, it’s the perfect easy-stitch wardrobe essential.

Aztec Clutch

Aztec Clutch

Bring a simple accessory to life with some well-placed cross stitch! Lucy Hopping’s luscious Aztec-inspired clutch bag can be easily replicated using a plastic canvas as a base and a vivid linen lining. Follow our pattern, or get creative and design your own, for a unique party piece.

Floral Skirt

Floral Skirt

For a fifties showstopper that's sure to turn heads, you can't beat a circle skirt, and this lovely no-pattern project by Amanda Walker is just the ticket with its pretty floral border and flattering waistband based on your measurements. For a fit and flare sew pretty, everything's coming up roses!
