I thought it would be good to profile some cute sewing patterns, in case you are thinking of making your own clothes, instead of buying them from the shops.
Granted, a lot of sewing patterns are very fugly, but LUCKILY I’ve sourced the totally unfugly kind! Phew!
Have a click through and see if there’s anything you’d like to put on yourself!

I like these patterns. They favour colourful, playful fabrics and cute shapes. They do kids’ patterns too!
