Benefits of using a Sewing Machine Mat

Thursday, January 26th, 2012

Hi Everyone,

This is one of my favourite sewing tips – the benefits of using a sewing machine mat!

* Reduce wear and tear on your table top
* Decrease noise and vibration (particularly when using under an overlocker)
* Create a smoother sewing experience

Watch my video below where I demonstrate how I use sewing machine mats for all of my sewing machines in the sewing school.

Please leave me a comment below, I would love to hear what you have to say about this sewing tip!

Happy Sewing,

Sewing a summer dress for little Poppy

Friday, January 20th, 2012

Hi Everyone,

In today’s post I feature a video of my daughter Jacqueline who made a sweet little summer dress for our little Poppy.

Jacqueline used an Olive Ann design called the ‘To Tie For Dress, Top & Doll dress’.

Jacqueline made this dress from a stretch print fabric and re-designed the hemline to feature a ruffle band. In this video Jacqueline also demonstrates some pattern matching and Poppy wearing her new dress!

If you liked this video, perhaps you have made a similar dress or are now inspired to do so please leave a comment below, we would love to hear from you!

Happy Sewing,
