Hello Dolly

Hello Dolly

Meet the newest member of the MBJM family - Finn. Getting a doll seemed like a great idea. Perfect for roll play and for helping develop Charlie's nurturing side. Plus, one more cute boy to sew for! Next time I have a 'great idea' feel free to whack me round the head...

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree…

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree…

The festive season is upon us and it's time for some Christmas sewing. Whilst I love all the Christmas jumpers out there (sweaters/pullovers for my non-British friends. Check out the British Christmas jumper obsession here), I don't think jumpers should get all the...

Mother of Dragons

Mother of Dragons

Out of the 4 animal appliqués, my boys definitely like the dragon the best. I'm ok with that because if they're dragons that makes me the Mother of Dragons. Now if only my hair were as awesome as Daenerys'... The dragon is a little more fiddly than the other three,...

I Want To Break Free!

I Want To Break Free!

I hope you guys have been busy enjoying the free Sandcastle Bucket Hat pattern. If you haven't grabbed a copy yet you can find it here. I chose not to include a chin strap in the pattern as I am conscious of the potential choking risk. However, during testing several...

Beach Hair – Don’t Care

Beach Hair – Don’t Care

If you take a look at the only proper photo I've had taken in the last 5 years you'll see I have a LOT of hair. That photo was a small hair day straight after a hair cut. I love having curly hair, it's great. Unless of course there's water nearby, or it's windy, or...

Wear Your Heart On Your Sleeve

Wear Your Heart On Your Sleeve

I love hearts. I have them festooned liberally around my studio. I had an idea to create a Valentine's outfit for Charlie using hearts, however, Valentine's day isn’t a huge deal in either of my home countries, so I wanted to design something stylish, but subtle that...

Faking It

Faking It

Tis the season for long sleeves and layers. I love the layered look, but Jack doesn’t like wearing 2 t-shirts, so I fake it. It’s ridiculously easy. Start with a regular t-shirt pattern - I’m using the Eclipse here. Cut 2 regular, short sleeves from your main fabric...
