Sweetheart Bandeau

Well hello there readers!

I have something to announce! After a long wait I have created my very first bra pattern for you to sew!

It has been a while since I have released a new sewing pattern, and as the majority of my patterns are knickers or boxers and I have been meaning to make bra patterns, so here is my first bralette pattern: the sweetheart bandeau YAY!

Now I want to point out, that this is no sports bra, nor is it intended to support your bust so no jogging recommended with this design (excluding a very quick game of kiss-chasey of course!) I love the romantic curved edge of this bralette, it is so dainty!

So whip out your sewing machines again girls, and give me some feedback!

Sleepy Head Eyemask

I have something to tell you: I am a fabric hoarder, I have fabric stashed away dating back to 2005 and every time I am cutting out I go through all my scraps to see if there are any big pieces that I could use for other projects. Am I silly? no! I just hate to waste.

I have been thinking of doing an eyemask pattern to get rid of my scrap fabrics for a while now but just haven’t got around to it…until now. So get ready for some scrap busting because these eyemasks are super cute!

Step 1. Download the pattern

Step 2. Cut 2 fabric, 1 wadding, 2 lengths of ribbon ( I cut mine to 45cm) and some 6mm binding

Step 3. (Optional) With the wadding sandwiched between the two fabric pieces sew a criss-cross design or what-ever you like for a quilted textured effect.

Step 4. On the side that will face your face pin the ribbon to the both sides of the mask.

Step 5. Bind the edge of the eyemask.

You are all done! enjoy the eyemask and let me know how you go with it.

What other small projects would you like to see a pattern for?
