The Somerset t-shirt is now out in paper!
And of course, The Somerset is still available in PDF format, just download and print at home for instant sewing joy.
Ok. So I haven’t really thought this post through but in the face of the Coronavirus the best thing to do, it seems, is to be kind and wash your hands. With this in mind, we (the family Maven) have decided this weekend (14th & 15th March 2020) to donate 50% of any sales of The Maria Apron PDF pattern to Shelter.
This is a tiny thing, my sales aren’t huge, and we often think the tiny things don’t matter, that they won’t make a difference, that WE can’t make a difference. But they do, it all counts.
So do what you can, carry on supporting your fav small businesses, smile at people, be kind, share the loo roll if you have a stash of it, ring someone to check they’re ok, buy a pattern.
The tiny things? They will all add up and they do matter.
These are the perfect addition to any Maker’s tool kit, helping you to create & alter your pattern and toiles with precision because, as we all know, a job is easier with the right tools!
We only have a small number in stock, so head over to the shop now if you have been waiting for them to arrive.
All of our tools can be bought individually too!
We have added to our Eco-elastic range and now have 28mm and 40mm wide elastics, which are going to be a great choice for an earth-friendly waistband!
The 40mm wide flat elastic has a lovely soft feel to the surface, soft enough to wear directly next to the skin or can be channelled in a casing. It is made in Austria from 65% certified organic cotton and 35% natural rubber.
The 28mm wide flat elastic is, again, made in Austria from 50% certified organic cotton and 50% natural rubber. Both elastics are suitable for light to medium weight fabrics and available in ecru.
Can be washed at 40°C
Are biodegradable & recyclable
Have a longer lifespan than comparable conventional elastic
Are tested against chlorine & heat
