February g&g makers gallery

Blog / 8 March 2017

I've been lovin' seeing all your makes popping up on my Instagram feed over the past month so here is a little round up of them!

Like me, you guys have been loving the new Atelier Brunette French Terry fabric and have made some really lovely tops and sweatshirts with it! We are out of stock at the moment but we've been told more will be available around the beginning of April...so it is coming back! We just have to wait a little bit longer.

Above is Kimberley's Grainline Linden and Becs Seamwork Astoria sweater that she squeezed out of 0.8m!!

Above is Sals Named Sloane sweatshirt, Helens Linden sweater and Kates Linden (with her awesome necklace!!)

The Grainline Linden pattern continues to be so popular. I think it manages to strike the perfect balance between comfort, easy to sew and easy to wear! Below is Tazminium's version using our crane fabric (we only have the blue left now) and Alex's contrast sleeve version.




And how adorable is this set of lindens using some gorgeous Liberty sweatshirting from our stash sale last year!?

I'm very jealous of these lovely Carolyn Pyjamas?! Below is Cathys and Lesleys amazing versions using some of our cotton lawns.

I love the little strawberries and exposed binding on Gemmas Simple Top (pattern from my book) and it looks like shes added in a button band too. Find out how in this tutorial.

And Kates daughter is one lucky girl getting this lovely dress made using the Oliver + S Building Block dress pattern and our horses cotton lawn fabric that is in the sale!

LesleysMorgan jeans made using our rose grey denim during our jeans making workshop are so lovely! Excellent job!

And I really want to copy Kathryns Arielle skirt using our Indigo geometric denim

Using my tutorial to make a knitting needle case from way back, Lesley made a lovely version for her mum with a fun seaside print.

Rhiannon used our animal print fabric to make a colourful border on a baby blanket.

Both these projects look so cosy! Susan and Barbara made lovely versions of the Named Saunio Cardigan using our Kingfisher Blue wool fabric and our mustard felted wool fabric.

If your an avid instagrammer like me then I'm sure you will have seen o many amazing versions of this pattern recently for the #monetaparty You can find out more about how the party works in this blog post from Rachel at Rach Against the Sewing Machine.

Sarah made this amazing striking version using our blue abstract jersey fabric and Abigail (who is also one of the party organisers) made another lovely version using our Liberty jersey.

If you haven't come across it yet, the #monetaparty was an online competition where entrants could post a pic of themselves wearing a handmade moneta dress for the chance to win lots of prizes. These are the 9 finalists all chosen by companies sponsoring the event (we choose pilar_bear in the top left) and this weekend three of these lovely entries will be picked by Colette HQ to go to a public vote to win the star bumper prize. More details on how that works are on Elles blog at Sew Positively.

Keep sharing your gorgeous creations you lovely lot! You know I love to see them!
