simply sewing

This new year, we’re calling for a detox! And that means we’re decluttering our craft stash, tidying our sewing space, and organising our me-made wish-lists for the year ahead. We’re thinking practical everyday staples, quick-sew accessories and colourful weekend wear. If it’s not going to get worn, it’s not going to get sewn! There’s something about sewing with a purpose that makes the whole process feel so much more enjoyable, right? Let’s get to it. Pop the kettle on, there’s a green tea with your name on it.

anna pavlovna

Anna, one of the three masterminds behind Anna Pavlovna, grew up in a family where every woman was taught to sew. As part of her childhood, Anna would sew clothes for her dolls and make small things for the family home with her mother, and she and her grandmother would spend time together indulging in a spot of embroidery. With a background filled with textiles, it's unsurprising Anna decided to pursue a career in cloth, launching a now-thriving business creating handmade toys and teddy bears. Anna works together with Katherine and Anastasia to create hand-crafted toys, PDF sewing patterns and DIY...
