What sewing crafts could I make?
There are so many crafty projects you can make using fabric and a needle and thread, and the possibilities are seemingly limitless. While you can obviously use sewing kits and products to make and repair clothes, we have lots of ideas if you are looking for inspiration in other areas. If you are looking for a sewing craft that would look great in your home, there are so many home décor project that you could do. Make tablecloths, runners, or coasters to decorate the focal piece at your next important dinner party.

How should I use tracing paper in my sewing crafts?
Tracing paper has been a handy item in any dressmaker’s kit and it is used to easily transfer patterns. If your pattern is in a book and you do not want to remove it, a vintage pattern that you want to preserve, or perhaps just want to share with a friend, this is a great way of making copies. Trace your patterns in the size that your project requires, we recommend using gentle pressure with a light pencil so that you can erase any mistakes easily. You can always go over them with pen later to make the lines more visible. Ensure that the tracing paper pattern is laid flat on your garment, be aware that pins can cause puckering and you should take this into account. You can also use a tracing wheel to transfer the image onto the fabric. Check out our fabulous range of sewing patterns books, stock up on supplies including tracing paper, and you will have everything that you need to design an entire new wardrobe for you and the whole family.
