So sad that the pop up shop at the @newcrafthouse has come to an end. Absolutely loved hanging out with Rosie, Hannah & Twigs, and it was so special to meet so many of my customers. Thank you to everyone who came along, and a huge thank you to @pinkcoatclub, @thimblebee, @sewinthegarden, Mr Sew Me Sunshine & The New Craft House girls for all of your help and support. What a way to end my first year in business, can't wait to see what the second year will bring for Sew Me Sunshine ☀️💛

I can not wait for the Cones Mills stretch denim to restock.  Should be any day now 🤗

I wanted to see how it would sew up into a pull on Jegging. I teamed up with @madebykates and she made these wonderful @lovenotions #sabrinaslims •

If you are looking for a pull on jegging the Sabrina slim is awesome! 
Thanks for collaborating with me @madebykates these pants 👖 are the BOMB!!!

I make rough patterns out of used computer paper. I never bother to buy patterns, cuz I want to figure it out on my own. This fabulous purple fabric is gonna be turned into an empire waist dress. Hopefully.

I’m chuffed to bits that I’ve had a fair few new followers (thanks so much) so thought it would be good to introduce myself for those who don’t know much about me already ☺️☺️☺️
.
I’m Mel, I’m 40 and I live in Stoke on Trent with my hubby Leon (we’ve been together for 25 years, crazy!!!), my daughters Bryoni who is 18 and Izzy who is 14, oh and our miniature jack Russel Trixi and Chester the chinchilla .
.
My day job is that I manage a lovely team of Mortgage Advisors but my passion is Sewing
.
I’ve been sewing for I think about 6-7 years now, but only really got serious in 2015 after I applied for the GBSB and got through to the final auditions, but then totally messed up the final audition hence putting my big girl pants on and really stretching my sewing skills ever since as I’m a big believer in brushing yourself off and taking the positive from a negative (oh and no I haven’t applied for the upcoming series but can’t wait to watch) ☺️
.
I love to blog and was also surprised to find how much I love vlogging too after launching my YouTube channel about 10 months ago.
.
I love to share sewing tips and tutorials, and also enjoy  the photography element of sharing my Makes (although totally amateur at it)
.
My Sewing goals going forward are to learn more about drafting my own patterns and to focus more on planning my Makes to end up with a wardrobe that works well together rather than random garments that I hardly ever wear.
.
So that’s me, and it’s wonderful to meet you here!
.
My latest make is a @tillybuttons CoCo sweater which has been made extra special by adding Alb Stoff cuffing that I purchased from @sewmesunshine.uk I’ve added a little video to IGTV if you fancy seeing the sweater in person ☺️
.
Thanks again to everyone for following, it means the world!

Here's my entry for the fantastic #greatbigpatternswap hosted by @the.polka.dot.palace and @thezipperfoot! ✂️ I sent 4 patterns across the world as part of the swap and received the McCall's M7313 pattern from @linda_hinds ✉ I used ponte from @sewmesunshine.uk and @jerseygirlsfabric to make my dress and I'm so pleased with it! ❤ Accessorised with my red @pinkcoatclub seamstress pin and red @swedishhasbeens 💋

New top and trousers, featuring pangolin fabric I designed myself. Pangolins are thought to be the most trafficked mammal in the world. Their scales are used in traditional Chinese medicine and their meat is a luxury.

Here’s a blustery photo of the New Look 6459 top I made for the #greatbigpatternswap! Thank you to @the.polka.dot.palace for sending me the pattern and for organising the swap with @thezipperfoot 💖
It may not look particularly wild or crazy but I don’t usually go sleeveless so this is new for me! I also hacked the back to have a tie (a la the Stevie dress) and will share a pic on a day when I’ve tied a neater bow 😂🎀
Who else is taking part in the pattern swap?
Ex-Liberty fabric from @sewmesunshine.uk but just sold out, sorry 🙈

I’ve had such a fun couple of days helping Harriet at the @sewmesunshine.uk @newcrafthouse pop up shop! If you’re in or near London you must pop in tomorrow - there’s so many lovely fabrics and patterns to stroke and you can also buy my pins, key chains, necklaces and stickers! (The new bits are a pop up exclusive as they’re only currently available in my Etsy shop!)
Here I’m wearing a crew neck @tillybuttons Freya dress in sparkly Cherry Bakewell jersey - available online and at the pop up! (Also holding @iam_patterns I Am Joy, because I am 🤣)

Finally!!!! 💃🏻💃🏻💃🏻 I finished my #bhlkimdress and I can’t wait to wear it. 
I’m in love with our #ladymcelroy Summer Poppy’s fabric and  I knew it needed to be made into a pretty dress 👗 
The pintucks really do add so much. 
Oh and excuse The little bit of lopsided ness.  It’s pinned onto this 26” inch waist display form and this mamma sure as hell don’t have a 26” waist 😂😂

When the shop co-owner comes to work in a pink jumper she made and casually hangs out in front of the pink store. 💖✨ This is Carolyn aka @burgerzzz in the cuuutest @tillybuttons Cleo dress! Aaaaaand just FYI, our Sew A Cleo Dress workshop is coming back on August 26 and there are still spots available!  Join us to make this perfect transitional garment - you can wear it through all the seasons depending on how you layer it! ✨💖✨

Never in a million years did I think that a black background would work with my complexion!!
.
I really fancy a change at the mo, so I simply hung up a piece of black fabric to totally change my background, check my stories to see ☺️💖
.
It’s amazing what you can do with the kit already in your home, with a bit of trial and error of course.
.
This dress is a @sewoverit #bettydress and I love to wear it with a big petticoat underneath!
.
I made this as a bridesmaid dress for my lovely friends wedding, blimey @kerry_lou79 it seems like ages ago!!
.
The only trouble is that it has a really stubborn crease right down the centre front, where the fabric was folded I recon, does anyone have any tips on how to get rid of it? 🤞🤔

Over a year! This how long it's taken me to finish these Deer and Doe Safran pants. They're not perfect and I lost my patience with them many many times but I finally got there. If you're struggling on a sewing project don't worry, the end might not be sight now but one day it will be!

A second @sewoveritlondon Penny dress coming together in sheer linen. So sheer that I have to sew a lining under the skirt 😬 Any one tried sewing a lining into an already finished skirt?

The softest most strokeable fabric that ever was, more Jersey makes for me. Only part of my purchase but my favourite. Thank you @sewmesunshine.uk at her pop-up @newcrafthouse was great meeting you and the adorable Albert. Fabric and dogs are my two favourite things in the world. Yesterday was a great day, highly recommended people go check it out you won't regret it. #fabric #madebyme #popupshop #fabricdestash #fabricaddict #fabricshopping #fabricshop #diydressmaker #sewistsofinstagram #memadeeveryday #lovesewing #diyfashion #imakemyclothes #fabriclove #supportsmallbusiness

Thankyou to everyone who voted on which cuffing to use yesterday, I love how the winning one turned out ☺️
.
Here’s a sneaky peek at this months @minervacrafts blogger network, it’s the @compagniemmm Julietta sweater which is so quick and easy to make, made from a lovely soft cotton jersey, details to follow later in the month in my blog post 💖💖💖
.
Incase you missed it in my stories yesterday, if there is anyone near to Staffordshire who fancies meeting up to take photos for blog posts etc, I’d love a photo buddy as I’m not quite brave enough to photograph out in public on my own, and it doesn’t really fill the hubby with joy coming along with me 😂
.
I have a decentish camera, tripod etc and you would be welcome to use it to take photos for your blog too if you don’t have one, just think of all the lovely places that we could visit as settings for our photos! 📷✨💖
.
Have a wonderful weekend!

This one has been easy!#diydressmaker #goodwill #dresstransformer
Just got to wear this dress before the weather turned cooler.  Will make this pattern again but change the neckline.  It's a little bit too high for a summer dress. 😊💞👗
Pattern: Very Easy Vogue V9021

So I’m back from such a lovely holiday in Greece, it’s always a shame to come back but at least I’m not back to work until Monday ☺️
.
This was my most worn outfit whilst on holiday, it was so comfortable to wear, it’s the @sewliberated #hinterlanddress and is made from beautiful linen from @merchantandmills, I love how the sparkle in the fabric matches the sparkle on my converse ✨✨✨
.
I’m getting a bit bored with my photos in my little photo corner, so plan a trip to the woods to take photos for a blog post soon ☺️ although it may feel a bit weird to head off to take photos in the woods with a tripod and remote, I may need to drag someone along with me! .

I’m getting a bit bored with my photos in my little photo corner, so plan a trip to the woods to take photos for a blog post soon ☺️ although it may feel a bit weird to head off to take photos in the woods with a tripod and remote, I may need to drag someone along with me! . . . . . . . . . . . #sewersofinstagram  #createmakeshare  #ilovetosew  #fortheloveofsewing  #creativelifehappylife  #sewcialists  #memadeeveryday  #sewingmakesmehappy  #instasew  #isew  #memade  #seamstresslife  #diyfashion  #homesewn  #handmadewardrobe  #sewingwithstyle  #sewingchronicles  #sewinglifestyle  #sewallthethings  #ilovesewing  #imadethis  #diydressmaker  #isewmyownclothes 
Hinted a few weeks ago about this #dotted swiss becoming a #Simplicity8019. I can't wait to share the finished make 😁 See all my summer #sewing plans on the vlog #linkinprofile
Seam? Or invisible zip? You tell me 😉 Very pleased with how this one went in. My Town of Bedrock Emery Dress is nearly done 😄

Happy Wednesday,⠀
⠀
We have some new followers 🤗 since I last did an intro so I thought I would do a 5️⃣ things maybe you didn’t know about D&H Fabrics Co- ready- here we go! ⠀
•⠀
•⠀
1️⃣. I named the company after these two crazies, my girls, I know totally original, but I liked it, and they think it’s cool 😎 ⠀
•⠀
2️⃣. I always say we and us in my posts but it’s just I.  It’s a one woman show at the moment, and I’m dreaming one day I will have a team to collaborate with on everything! Oh and when I’m out of town with my job- mama cuts and ships orders so there is no down time in processing ⠀
•⠀
3️⃣. We are a sponsor of @dressingwithlove we just shipped (see there I go again) I just shipped out some fabrics so they can make more dresses.  So if you ever have any light weight woven fabrics like lawn and quilting cottons get in contact with them! ⠀
•⠀
4️⃣. We ship the fastest and cheapest means possible and we ALWAYS refund any shipping overages.  So don’t be scared of our shipping costs cause more than likely you will get some if not half of it of it back 🤗⠀
•⠀
•⠀
5️⃣. I import most of, if not all of the fabrics.  I want the best and if that means I have to pay those crazy shipping fees, I do it .  Cause it’s sooo worth it in the end! ⠀
•⠀
•⠀
So there ya have it.  I hoped you learned something new about me and this crazy dream I call D&H. 💗 you all!!!! ⠀

Birthday Betty dress! This was my first ever sewing project nearly three years ago and it was definitely a challenge! I bought it on a whim while I was in Liberty's, and I needed a lot of help from a pro (my mum). It is still one of my favourites of everything I've made. And it gave me my love of @sewoveritlondon ❤️❤️

Yes, I'm finally getting around to sharing my Sew 'n' Tell video for my #spring #sewing makes See more on the vlog #linkinprofile
Thought provoking piece from @abbyglassenberg in her newest column The Common Thread. Do you find headlines such as "Not your grandma's sewing" tiresome? Do headlines like these imply older women who sew are somehow boring and don't have anything to bring to the sewing table? If sewings need to be repackaged in a sparkly package for younger generations to get on board, do we need to discount the older generation by doing so? Ah, such a great article I do hope you read it. We would love to hear your thoughts on it! 
And, if you're interested there are some great #'s like #sewingover60 #genxsewing, #sewingover50! And, they have some fabulous makes out there!  Check out what @Diaryofasewingfanatic is up to!

Ever since I started sewing I've been pining after a vintage Singer sewing machine, so I was quite overwhelmed when I got this beauty for my birthday.😍
It's a 1927 model, and though it's clearly been used, it's in unbelievably good condition. In fact, it's probably in better condition than my current sewing machine...
I'm waaayyyy too scared to actually use it though. I think this is just going to sit in my office and look pretty.

Serving wallpaper realness 💛 This was a jumpsuit, then nearly a playsuit and now it’s a midi dress. The pattern name/number evades me, but the fabric is the most beautiful vintage print from @theantiquedealerswife 💛

You may have seen on my stories that last night I wore my beloved @byhandlondon kim dress, I just love the border print on this one (it’s a Liberty of London tana lawn) 💖
.
I made this dress for a special christening a while back, but it still feels special every time I wear it ☺️💖
.
I did film a video about the Kim dress pattern (as I’ve made a couple of versions) so head over to the link in my bio to see ☺️
.
Have a lovely Wednesday (I had to really think about what day it is then, don’t you just love holiday ☺️)
