15 Mar Cath Kidston : Sew!
And I almost always say, “if you cannot afford them, make them.” Of course this isn’t going to be a reality for everyone, as we lead such busy lives, but if you do have a few spare hours, and a willingness to learn, there are so many resources out there that can help you to create truly inspiring clothes and home-wares.
Iconic fabric designer Cath Kidston has just released the cutest little mini sewing handbook, simply called “sew!”. Inside is over 40 projects for beginners right through to more advanced sewers, including bags, toys, pillow cases, and other home-wares.
The joy of making things ourselves is that we don’t have to spend a fortune, and by perhaps using an old piece of fabric you have laying around, or recycling an old tabelcloth or sheet into a new piece of clothing or home ware, you are saving yourself a bit of money, getting your creative juices flowing, and helping to save resources!

Thanks for sharing the book! I’ve really gotten into sewing my own things, you’re definitely right. If you can reuse some old fabric from something else, it really turns into an environmentally friendly project. Even just making some adjustments to thrift store clothing can help!
