Sewing a Sew House 7 Toaster Sweater - Hints and Tips

My lovely mum has written this blog post about sewing your own Toaster Sweater...   The Sew House 7 Toaster Sweater #1 instructions are excellent, these are just some hints and tips which may help you to sew your own Toaster. I used this beautiful Sparkly Glitter Sweatshirt in Pale Pink  to make this sweater. This fabric is 60 inches wide and I used 1.5 metres. I pre-washed the fabric at 30 degrees with an 800 spin (the same as I will use to wash the finished garment). I made version 1 in a size medium with no alterations. I folded the fabric selvedge...

Holly's Cosy Winter Casey Sweater by Experimental Space Patterns

Don't you just love cosy-ing up in a snuggly sweater at this time of year? I know I certainly do! When Katie at Sew Sew Sew had a drop of the new Stof Fabrics in, it was so difficult to pick a favourite! They are all stunning but this Mountains Sweatshirting stole my heart. I love to ski and the little mountains pattern reminded me of the gorgeous mountains when we go skiing. We have another trip planned late in January so I couldn't help pick this one to sew up a cosy jumper to take with me! This fabric...

Holly's Autumn Mustard Romy

That bow. Isn't it just the cutest? A small detail that instantly elevates a simple jersey dress into an interesting, fun and modern look, perfect for many an occasion. The Romy top and dress pattern by Tilly and the Buttons was released back in the Summer and wasn't one that I instantly purchased (somewhat unusually), but the more versions that I saw pop up online, the more I fell in love it - and I knew I needed one in my Autumn wardrobe this year! I was also pretty chuffed when the lovely Katie from Sew Sew Sew said I...

Hi Everyone, My name is Amanda (aka I Sew A Lot) and was super excited when the lovely Katie got in touch to ask if I would be interested in writing a guest blog post.  I have followed @sewsewsewuk for some time on Instagram and purchased fabrics in the past which have always been beautiful. The first task was to choose from the amazing fabrics on the site which I have to admit was a bit of a struggle as there was so much loveliness.  Katie had also been in touch to let me know that she was expecting some...
