A monthly box of sewing goodies, delivered to your door

Your Makes Vol 2

I absolutely love seeing what you make and every time a picture pops up on Instagram I do a little squeal and instantly show my husband.

Where I completely take over the living room during packing week he is well acquainted with all the fabrics, patterns and goodies that get sent out so he is just as excited as I am to see how you all make such different things out of the same fabrics.

It’s all very exciting!

Sarah has made herself a gorgeous emery dress using the brushed cotton she received in January. Sarah has been with me since the very beginning and has found that she is becoming more adventurous with her dressmaking as a result.

Nicola made herself a super cosy McCalls 7254 using the quilted jersey from Decembers box. I absolutely love it paired with a stripy, long-sleeved top to keep you warm on a countryside walk.

Wilma has been on a roll with her dressmaking recently, she used both the fabric and the Doris dress pattern from her March ‘Spring to Life’ box to make this stunner.

Nicole found a great fix after spending half her tube commute untangling her earbuds and sewed up this cute little Zip Pouch using one of her fat quarters to keep them safe.

Wilma had a sixth sense that her Atelier Brunette fabric from the April ‘French Fancies’ box was calling out to be made into a McCalls 7433. The fabric looks perfect matched with this 1940’s pattern from McCall’s archive collection.

Mandy received her very first box this month and with it came the stunning georgette fabric which she put to good use to make the top from the Jenny Dress pattern which was developed by The Fold Line for Simply Sewing magazine. She finished them off with some vintage glass buttons up the top.

Using the fat quarters from April’s ‘French Fancies’ box, Wilma made herself a couple of hand tote bags and last but definitely not least Caroline used the Art Gallery Fabrics Voile from her February box to back her stunning quilt. Perfect for snuggling under!

I absolutely love being able to feature your makes on the blog so make sure to post them on Facebook or put them on Instagram using the hashtag #sewhayleyjanemakes

I wonder what you’ll make with the fabric I’m about to start preparing for the May boxes…
