  • DIY Couture

    We are now stocking the first three absolutely fabulous DIYcouture pattern books: How to make a pleated skirt, How to Make a Gathered Dress and How to Make a Cloak. More designs are in the pipeline - we can't wait!

    "DIYcouture books remove the need for complex sewing patterns. Diagrams and pictures take the maker through the creation process, so that unique, personally fitted pieces of clothing are accessible to anyone...rather than purchasing a garment, the DIYcouture customer purchases a book containing a set of simple, visual instructions, which help them to make that garment themselves."

  • Free Hat Knitting Patterns!

    Here's a nice little project for you knitters. We made this hat ourselves recently and thought it so pretty and easy to make we decided to share it with you. The pattern uses two balls of our favourite - Lang Pearl aran weight yarn. We used silver grey but Lang Pearl is available in 14 lovely colours so you have plenty of colour options.
