a blog about my adventures in dressmaking, crochet, knitting and anything else i try to make.

the big stitch!

hey everyone,

have you heard about a project called The Big Stitch?

Seamstress Jackie McMillian upcycles and makes clothes for BHF’s The Big Stitch campaign. Photography by Danny Fitzpatrick www.dfphotography.co.uk danny@dfphotography.co.uk +44 (0) 7779 606901

the british heart foundation launched this initiative on july 1st (i’m late with my post! forgive me, kittens have taken over my life) and the idea is to go and buy something from one of their shops, and use your refashioning skills to make it into something wearable, thus giving it a new lease of life!


you can find more information here… https://www.bhf.org.uk/TheBigStitch.

i’m quite excited about making something for this!   it’ll be just like the re-fashioning bit from the sewing bee, but i’m definitely going to give myself longer than 90mins haha.
