We have lots of beautiful stretch fabrics in our online shop. If you're nervous about sewing knits don't be, it's much easier than you think. @tillybuttons fabulous new stretch book has loads of great tips and tricks. My go to tools for sewing stretchy fabric are my rotary cutter, ballpoint needles and my walking/quilting machine foot. Now to decide what project to sew......
#frankietshirt#frankiet#shesewsvintage#sodberrysewingschool . In keeping with what I have been seeing and learning from the STITCH SISTERS Vlog. I made a headband with a bow sewn on top of the band out of my left over fabric from my #tillyandthebuttonsstretch and I used a little bit more to line the first 7 inches of the sleeves at the wrist to allow me to cuff the sleeves while leaving them a little wider than the pattern shows. Love the STITCH SISTERS VLOG. You should totally give their channel a look see! It's like having a chat with friends about sewing!
Such a happy mail day! ✂️🎉✂️ .
Just unwrapped @tillybuttons new #sewingbook#tillyandthebuttonsstretch and have been doing a happy little dance all morning flicking through the super cute but also incredibly helpful step by step instructions on how to sew knit fabrics🤗
It couldn't of come at a better time.
Being Autumn in Australia , I was considering doing what I do every winter and just wear my colourful sundresses all year round just with tights and a cardigan or two on top but Tilly has shown me I don't have to sacrifice my need to sew cute stuff or buy store bought boring black and grey clothes over winter , she has introduced me to a "whole new world" of comfort and style by making season appropriate clothes that are just as fun to make as they are to wear .
I think I need to make the yellow dress with the ruffles first and find some fun velvet fabrics for the twisty "Joni" dress with skater skirt and am also excited she included a pattern for a raglan tee as vintage band raglan tees are my go to for bumming around the house and going grocery shopping etc so I'm actually going to see if I can find the right fabric to make that this week as it means I can try my hand at screenprinting my own fun graphics on them.
It doesn't matter if you have never used a sewing machine before or like me been sewing everyday for years but have been a little too intimidated by stretchy fabrics, this is such a great book that you will actually use not just make your #craftroom look fab x
Can’t think of any better way to spend a rainy afternoon than #sewingstella from @tillybuttons new book #tillyandthebuttonsstretch made a slight change in having no cuffs, decided to match my hem that way, and no drawstring as I always end up rethreading them after hoodies have been in the washer 🙄 the pink jersey polka dot from @fabricsgalorelondon was the perfect hood lining, I was going to do a contrast hood but we’ll save that for my next Stella 😆😆😆 a girl definitely needs more than one 🤔🤣
Check out @sewdalriada in her beautiful @tillybuttons Freya using our gorgeous Animals Navy Jersey! Doesn’t she look amazing! The use of the animals jersey on the skirt is genius . A really lovely outfit. We do still have a bit of this left in the bolt ends section! There is also another colourway due to arrive as well. #materialgirllaura#sewingwithknits#tillyandthebuttonsstretch#freyatop
I'm finally joining the Secret Pyjama Squad since Tilly and Buttons Stretch! @tillybuttons now availabel in Germany (ordered with Amazon)
It was a birthday gift to me and even though I'm everything but new to sewing I love making my own wardrobe with comfortable and easy to wear items. The book includes 5 patterns but as soon you see them you'll have millions of ideas how to make them your own and be creative.
Until now I've seen so many lovely makes on instagram I have no clue where to start. The book also give you hashtags to find each other - how cool is that?! 💕
Anyway I'll see what ever knits fabrics I have at home or can get my hands on to get started!
Do you have any favourites? Or have made something from the book? Let me know!
Some very exciting mail came today!!! Unfortunately I am doing heaps of assessment for uni at the moment so I probably won't get to really look at this for a while 😣😣 @tillybuttons #tillyandthebuttonsstretch#stretchsewingbook
Yesterday didn’t quite go to plan with a trip to the dr which turned into a trip to the hospital for outpatient iv abx which turned into being bundled into the back of an ambulance at 3am with a temp of over 40 degrees and a diagnosis of being ‘really quite seriously unwell’ and septic. BUT! My @tillybuttons #tillyandthebuttonsstretch arrived before I left yesterday afternoon and by the time I’d been called in for my appointment I’d already bought some lovely red #ponteroma to make a mini length #sewingbibi with the pinny add on....meaning I will shortly own 5 #memade @tillybuttons pinafore dresses (the other four are #cleodress ) 😂 #sewing#sewingforme#pinnaforedress#makeallthepinnafores#takingstyletipsfrommy3yo
So in love with my #tillyandthebuttonsstretch book that just arrived with my #fabricstyles order. Can't wait to try out all the patterns with my rather sizeable stash. There are at least two patterns I would use with these fabrics .
