Hi, I’m Claire and this is my little sewing blog. It’s called My Monday Makes because Monday’s my day off -when I get to play with my sewing machine and make lovely things, usually for my two children (but occasionally for me)!  Whilst some mums dread book character day and all the other dressing up days, for me it’s just another excuse to challenge myself to create whatever ideas my children dream up.  Super-Hamster Girl was one of my favourites!  Now my daughter joins in and comes up with amazing ideas which I do my best to replicate in fabric.

I love sewing and making beautiful things.  I want to share the things I make and how I make some of them, to encourage others to give sewing a go and to offer some inspiration and ideas to all you experienced sewers!

I hope you like it!

You are welcome to use them to make a few items to sell for a good cause or charity (school fairs etc.), but you do not have permission to use my pictures, words or designs without giving me credit and linking back to the original.  If you want to sell my designs or items made using my tutorials commercially then please contact me.
