Denali vest for Mark

It’s unselfish sewing month over on my Facebook Stashbusting Sewalong group and I’m the host, so I thought I’d better lead by example and make a few things for other people.

Makes for Mark

When we were camping recently I thought I would make Mark a couple of things. First up was another long sleeve t-shirt using the Men’s Metro T-Shirt. I have several other men’s t-shirt patterns, but I quite like this one. I didn’t take a photo of Mark with the t-shirt in action because he hasn’t […]

More trousers for Mark

I have made Kwik Sew 3663 for Mark so often, that I think I could make these trousers in my sleep. They are really supposed to be for working around the house but since Mark brought me home all this wonderful fabric from Sri Lanka, I have been making him a slightly more tailored version. These […]
