PIN & SEW MAKES : Watercolour Succulents Jersey Elliot Sweater

Hi fellow sewers, I'm Ruth(@ruthiesews)and this is my first blog post as part of the Pin and Sew Blogger Team. I hope you enjoy it! I love so many of Aga's fabrics, which I think are just that little bit unusual, but I finally decided on this one called 'Watercolour Succulents': I even love the name!   Then I had to decide what to make and became very indecisive. The jersey is really a lovely quality cotton, which is very stable.I was so tempted to make a dress, as I so often am, but I let the sensible part of...

SEWING FOR KIDS: Banana Boat Tee with Vinyl Applique

Hello, I'm Cherry (@goingtoneedstitches) and I'm delighted to be contributing to the Pin and Sew blog.

I love patterns with extra details so was very taken by  the Banana Boat Tee by Lil'Luxe Collection. This was recently released as part of a collaboration of different designers for Project...

YOU CAN HACK IT: Metallic Freya Dress with Gathered Skirt

Hi, I’m Tamlyn (Also known as Sewn on the Tyne) and I’m so happy to be here today with my first blog post as part of the Pin and Sew Blogger Team. When Aga asked me to be first up with the March blog post and to link it in with our #sewingpatternsandprints challenge (head to my Instagram page for more details), I knew exactly which fabric I wanted to choose. The challenge theme for March is ‘metallics’ and Aga has some incredibly beautiful fabrics that meet this theme. I love space themed prints, especially stars, so the Galactic Glitter...

SELFLESS SEWING : Dinosaur Jersey Man's Metro Tee

Hi everyone, my name is Dani and I write a sewing blog over at Pocket or Two. I am incredibly excited to share with you today the Dino Jersey Metro Tee I made for my partner Logan.  When I spotted the khaki coloured origami dinosaur jersey fabric on Pin & Sew’s website I immediately asked my partner if he’d like a new tee shirt. I was even more excited when Aga got in touch and asked if I’d like to write a blog post on my planned make with it for Pin & Sew. I sew a lot for myself; to be honest,...
