simply sewing fresh ideas with fabric

A new season seems the natural time to spring forwards and arm ourselves with new ideas, plans, fabrics and habits to mark the first shoots of spring in this new decade. After all, to revive, refresh and reset; the act of sewing is all those things. So make this the month when you learn a new stitch, get to grips with gathers or upcycle a denim favourite, and we’ll be here to provide sewing inspiration and a helping hand. Quirky, beautiful or practical, there’s something for every sewist in this issue, from a scented garden of Liberty florals to good-looking storage solutions and an utterly adorable puppy plushie. Share and post your spring makes using #simplysewingmag WWW.SIMPLYSEWINGMAG.COM #SIMPLYSEWINGMAG facebook.com/simplysewingmagazine twitter.com/simplysewing_ pinterest.com/simplysewingmag instagram.com/simplysewingmag…
