Me and Two Makes Three - Store
Once or twice a year, in the school holidays I take my two children into London. A big day out on the train into the big city. Living in Essex means it’s less than an hour to get in to Central London via Fenchurch S…
One of the first things I really liked to make was a little drawstring bag. Once you get into sewing bags, there really is no way to stop. From simple gift bags to cosmetic pouches, to kids backpacks and even sturdy…
I’m always delighted when the Elves at UKQU HQ ask if I wouldn’t mind taking a look at a new fabric range and writing up a little review. And when I received a bundle of 10′ squares from Lynne Goldsworthy’s new ran…
One thing that stood out from the Grenfell Towers Quilt appeal was the generosity of the sewing and quilting community. People gave fabric, wadding, blocks, whole quilts and even money to help us achieve our goal of…
Who doesn’t love a new toy? Especially a sewing one! I was thrilled to be asked to test and review the June Tailor Inc Twist ’n Stitch Pinwheel Ruler. I’ll admit when looking at the pictures I didn’t recogni…
Nice review. I have a question please – I think u have seen this used in a video previously, and felt that there seemed to be a lot of fabric wastage. Did you find this, or were the left over pieces usable? Thanks.
I not u – sausage fingers at work…..
From the 5″ cut squares to the 3.5″ finish block there was a small piece left. It could be saved for a bit of paper piecing or perhaps some 1″ hexies. I think using the bigger sized blocks would give you some reasonable sized scraps to play with.
Thank you – useful information.
Fabric – we all love it and thankfully there are so many ranges and design houses there is always enough to please everyone. Whether you are a person that buys by the metre, the yard or fat quarter there really is…
The lovely people at UKQU HQ very kindly asked if I’d like to review some fabric and I jumped in the air! I’m more than happy to admit to being a fabric addict. The fabrics were from Makower UK and I joyfully rec…
Thank you to all those who had a read of my pattern review for the Inside Outside Pouch by Aneela Hoey. I enjoyed making the pouch and reviewing it and hope to bring you more reviews in the future.
Now for the…
I treated myself to this pattern after managing to offload a bit of my stash on the UKQU Facebook Classifieds page. Santa kindly brought me Aneela’s book for Christmas and I love the patterns in it so this added v…
Looks like something else to add to my “I’d like to have a go at one of those” list!
I’d absolutely love to make one of these for myself – then probably many more for presents! Love your fabric choices x
Looks like a really good bag and sounds like a really good pattern!
Lovely Amy. Good to have a pattern road tested. If I won it I could use some more of my vinyl.
Love Aneela Hoey patterns from her book. Would really like to try this one.
Lovely bag. Perfect to carry my ‘bits and bobs’ to sewing group

Hello, I saw this pattern a few weeks ago, when I was looking for something cute to sew for a SWAP. I like this pouch and would love to have the pattern. Thanks for the chance to win!!
This pouch is lovely. Would be perfect for my daughter’s travels around Europe in her campervan.
I haven’t made a bag or a pouch yet but only a day or so ago I was thinking I would really like to have a go at making one. I’m unusually nervous about it (for me) but they are just such useful things aren’t they. Will defo have to overcome any anxieties and just have a go 🙂 Thank you so much for your blog Amy x
Beautiful bag, beautiful done ❤
