Minerva Craft Blogger Network - My Sewing Plans for the Next 3 Months!


Minerva Craft Blogger Network - My Sewing Plans for the Next 3 Months!

If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you'll notice I posted this week that I'm now part of the Minerva Crafts Blogger Network! I'm super excited about it, and I'm getting to try out lots of amazing patterns I've wanted to sew for a while, and with Minerva Crafts having such an amazing selection of fabrics, it took a very long time for me to decide on my first 3 month sewing plans!

I thought it'd be a nice idea to share my plans on my blog so you can see what I'll be getting up to with my new Minerva goodies, along with seeing the diverse selection of patterns and fabrics they stock. I decided to go with everyday Autumn/Winter essentials, all with patterns I've been eyeing up for a while. Let's get started...

November:

A classic land-girl inspired plaid shirt! A pinup girl must have.

I've been eyeing up the popular Grainline Archer pattern for a long while now, and one of my fave bloggers Gussets & Godets made THIS awesome plaid land-girl inspired version I just had to make for myself. This classic plaid fabric is perfect and it comes in such a wide range of colours, I may just end up making a whole bunch!




December:

Super sweet pjs perfect for a lazy Christmas!

What could be more perfect for December than pjs! I've been lusting after the Closet Case Files pjs since Tilly and the Buttons made THIS adorable cat version. For mine I'm keeping it simple in my favourite colour combo - baby pink and red. I'll be trying my hand at piping for the first time, but luckily Minerva Crafts sell handy ready made piping in a great range of colours.

January:

I'll be making option B for some Winter 60s vibes.

I've been lusting after this New Look button up skirt pattern since I saw, another blogger fave, Fancy Frugality mention it over on Instagram a couple of times. Then I spotted a great range of needle cord at a surprisingly good price and just had to have the stunning tan colour! Even though this project isn't scheduled until January, I might sneak it onto the sewing table sooner as I know I'll get so much wear out of it!

Fabric:
(This needle cord in only £4.99 a metre! Literally never seen such a good price for the quality. I'm also eyeing up purple and sky blue - see the full colour range HERE)

I hope you've enjoyed seeing what I've got planned for my first 3 months on the Minerva Crafts Blogger Network! I'm so excited to be a part of the blogger team and to start sewing these gorgeous garments. I'll be sure to post lots of progress shots on Instagram throughout too, so make sure you're following!

Have you tried any of these patterns? Let me know what you think!
Thanks for reading, pinups.

  1. Congratulations on joining the Minerva network, sounds exciting! I'm especially looking forward to seeing your Carolyn pyjamas in December - loving the pink and red combination.
