Colette Sewing Patterns


It may be over 60 years since WWII, but the spirit of 'Make Do & Mend' is very much alive and well. Colette Patterns have embraced the resurgence of crafting and created a range of sewing patterns for vintage-inspired clothing.

They have a range of pieces on offer, from a selection of summer frocks to menswear, suitable for any level of sewing expertise. Each is easily adapted in a range of versatile fabrics and are available in modern sizes 0 to 18. Their website is also a haven for crafting whizzes and have-a-go novices alike, featuring tutorials and tips for trickier stitches and fancy finishing touches. 

Patterns start from $16 and are available from the Colette Patterns website.

A Collection a Day Book

A Collection a Day is the result of a year long project undertaken by artist and serial hoarder Lisa Congdon.

Lisa decided to post a photograph of a different one of her many collections of old and unusual items on her blog every day for a year. The project ran throughout 2010 and featured a huge range of eclectic objects, from paper ephemera to vintage fishing lures and Yugoslavian enamel ladles. Some entries were imagined collections, drawn or painted by Lisa, but most are beautifully composed and phographed groupings of the minutiae of everyday life.

The book features full colour photographs of all 365 blog entries in chronological order, has over 400 pages and is more than an inch thick.

It costs $35.00 and comes in a collector's tin - you can buy a copy signed by Lisa herself here

Keep Calm-o-matic

Yes, the image you see before you is yet another variation on the Keep Calm and Carry On poster, but this is a Keep Calm product with a difference. ..

This poster was generated using the site Keep Calm-o-matic, a site that allows visitors to create their own Keep Calm parodies. As well as adding your own witty statement, the site also allows you to change the colour of the background and text and offers a choice of graphics and font faces. Once you are happy with your creation, you can save it and then have it printed as a poster.

Prices start from £8.80 and rise according to the print size, paper choice and framing. Visit Keep Cal-o-matic to try it for yourself.
