Trying to avoid Valentines Day?
So while everybody is busy planning for Valentines, I wondered what else was going on in February. If I see much more pink I might be sick, and Valentines isn't for everyone… right? (Like those of us who have been married for more than 5 minutes don't get a look in!) Anyway, less moaning, more sewing… and inspired I was, as I consulted my teachers calendar and realized it is in fact Chinese New Year on February 8th, and it's the year of the monkey. This got me thinking…
Get inspired with Asian-styled projects in this oriental sewing roundup!
New inspiration and ideas for sewing are always good, so why not find some oriental style sewing patterns for all of you?! Not only are there some fabulous dress designs, and cute little purses, but games, bags, decorations and more. Also thinking more of Chinese New Year, I found some monkey themed sewing! There are some cute monkey themed items to sew, which would be great as gifts, and also nice for children!
You might have some Asian fabrics around and this is the time to use them. Great especially for the Turning Japanese Bag Pattern, from our very own So Sew Easy, which is so easy to put together and sew. It also looks great!
Have a look through these sewing projects and whether you have all day or 30 minutes, and whether you are beginner or expert, there is something here for everyone.
