Start with an envelope back cushion. This project gets you feeling comfortable cutting your fabric and getting started on the machine, and gives you something gorgeous to pop on your sofa. So satisfying!
Then we take things up a notch with our lined travel pouch. In this section we’ll teach you how to insert your very first zip. But don’t worry – we make it easy, promise!
Finally there’s a chance to take your very first steps into dressmaking with a super cute pair of pyjama shorts! (These make perfect pressies!)
