simply sewing fresh ideas with fabric

This month we’re channelling the hygge vibe. Hygge is a Danish and Norwegian word used to describe a mood that combines being cosy, comfortable and content. With that in mind, we’re spending more time in front of the sewing machine, indulging in some well-deserved ‘me time’. Let Scandinavian style effortlessly influence your wardrobe and your home this season with cosy jumpers, chunky felt storage tubs and luxurious faux fur accessories. Pop the kettle on, it’s time to hibernate and get sewing.

all the feels

This year, I'm embracing winter and all it has to offer when it comes to seasonal sewing! I'm adding luxury metallics to my party outfits (p48), cosying up with Scandi-style faux fur homewares (a trend I've been swooning over for a while, p18) and setting the table for winter feasts (p82). We're also looking into the art of refashioning and the benefits that recycling our clothes has on our world – read more on p52. Feeling inspired? Sew a patchwork sweater (p62) and transform an old blanket into a cape (p56) - clever, huh?…

papercutts

One of the many joys of embroidery is how tactile it is, not just in the stitching of it but in the finished piece too – it's impossible to resist reaching out to touch it, a simple pleasure that continually inspires Gemma Cutts, the maker behind the Papercutts collection of stitched accessories. “One of the most important things for me about embroidery is how it inspires touch,” says Gemma. “I can’t help but feel the stitches under my fingers, and by using embroidery on items for the everyday that joy becomes part of your daily life.” Coin purses, patches, clutches, make-up bags, blankets and cushions are all machine-embroidered with Gemma’s original designs, from pineapples to peacock feathers. She realised the creative potential of digital embroidery while studying at Manchester Metropolitan University.…
