Just Sew Helen's Blog

Hello & welcome to my blog where I will share an insight into my life, values and behind the scenes of Just Sew Helen.  

This blog will show you the topics that inspire my small business including my love of sewing & dressmaking, hand embroidery and my exclusive baby loss & remembrance gifts. Underlying the creation of Just Sew Helen are women's health & pregnancy loss issues.

You can also find me over on Minerva Crafts where I am part of their Blogger Network (MCBN) & you can see more here.

I look forward to sharing my posts - feel free to make any comments.

  1. Welcome to this month's post on the Minerva Crafts Blogger Network - an outfit made using pattern New Look 6142.

    New look pattern

    I chose the fabric to match the lovely hearts and shoes jersey fabric and decided on a plain black ribbed jersey for the jacket and trousers.

    Some fitting alterations were needed to the outfit and the full post Lounge Wear - New Look 6142 can be found over on the MCBN.  All of the fabrics and notions for the project are available from within the post.

    Thanks to Minerva Crafts for the kit.

  2. I recently received some fabric from Minerva Crafts to review and had the pleasure of using this black patent pvc fabric. I decided to make a bag and experiment with internal pockets.

    I was really pleased with the finished bag and now use this for my travel sewing bag.
