Begin as I mean to go on…

Happy New Year to you, wishing you a prosperous and healthy 2020.

During the Christmas period I have enjoyed making some more newborn baby beanie hats for the local hospital.

Newborn Beanie Hats

In addition, I have set myself the goal for 2020 to sew a variety of clothing for me to wear. This has been inspired by several people I follow on Instagram (Tilly and the Buttons and Leah Nicholls (sewsewleah)). I have started with the Tilly and the Buttons Ness skirt, short version in turquoise baby cord.

There were some technical issues, I had used all my interfacing on the makeup bag gift sets, so had to patch enough to cover the fabric required. Also, my Brother sewing machine decided to through a wobble and the thread from the bobbin kept jamming. All resolved now, phew.

Completed Ness Skirt

Having completed my first item of clothing on the first day of the new month, year and decade, I shall begin as I mean to go on.

Altering patterns and getting a good fit is still an area that I need to improve on, the more I make the better (fingers crossed) this will be. I am determined to learn from everything I make.

So along with the tote bags, makeup bag gift sets and new items I will be selling, there will be more updates on the Me Made Wardrobe.

Thank you for your support. Clare x

By week days I am a Quantity Surveyor and at all other times I am sewing, knitting or crocheting, even on the banks of lakes whilst fishing (a little diverse, I know) My Mum taught me to knit at a young age, in fact, I can't remember not being able to knit. I started knitting dolls clothes and they required sewing. I was keen to develop my skills and went on to learn cross stitch and embroidery, but sewing clothing, bags, home furnishings and quilting are my absolute passion.
