Wow I’ve been gone from here for a long time! I’ve been on a little journey to try and convert the blog to being self hosted.. needless to say it didn’t go well with my non tech brain and I got totally confused and lost in the process! I seem to be able to resurrect this one again though, so for now that is what I’ll do!
I’ve still been sewing and crafting for the duration and still go to my weekly ‘Knit/Crochet night’ which keeps me sane! I’ve discovered more beautiful fabrics and have ventured into jersey knits and rayon for the first time. I’ll be listing those this week and possibly getting a spare 5 minutes to make something to test them out too!
My three kids are all in full time school now which theoretically means I have so much spare time. Somehow doesn’t seem to work that way though! Suddenly it’s 3:00 and I have to go collect them. Am volunteering in school a lot too which I’m thoroughly enjoying!
Anyway, enough rambling! I just wanted to pop in and say hi, will be writing about the new fabrics soon, possibly even this side of Christmas.. (optimistic!!)
So this blog has been pretty much redundant for quite a while now and a lot has changed here at SewMakeMe. I am now running the business by myself due to different circumstances and the birth of a few children!
I have taken a while to find my feet again and decide how best to proceed. It is hard sometimes to find the time to even formulate a clear thought, let alone get anything down in writing!
So the business for the time being is predominantly a fabric and haberdashery seller, apart from a few lines that remain popular. Mainly the Christmas stockings (is it too early for the C word??
I am also changing the focus of the blog a bit as I was never comfortable having it solely focussed on one aspect of my life only (mostly because it is too restrictive) Also I am a total butterfly mentally and am interested in so many different crafts and ‘things’. I know a lot of you will be in the same boat so I am going to incorporate many different things… watch this space!!!
Just an update to let you know that we will be taking part in this years Craft Fest 2012. Craft Fest is an online craft fair and will be showcasing some amazing handmade items.

I thought I would share with you some of our beautiful cushions that we are about to launch… All of cushions are available as ready made items or as a sewing kit to make at home. We have used the lovely Tilda fabric range mixed in with a few plain colours to make them pop!
Union Jack Cushion:
Floral pink pinwheel cushion:
Window pain cushion
All of the cushions have a sandwich opening with two ties making it easy to take off and wash. Each of our ready made cushions comes with the option of buying a luxury feather filled cushion pad.
The sewing kits for these cushions are for the beginner to intermediate sewer and take approximately 1.5 hours to complete. With the addded bonus of a video link to guide you step by step through the design process, there is no excuse not to complete your item!
I hope you like them, we would love any feedback.
