We’ve had a delivery of the new issue of Tauko Magazine which is simply bursting at the seams with sewing projects! This issue is perfect for packing along with your picnic to lose yourself in some peaceful reading while you dream up which pattern you are going to make first.
This issue is dedicated to the fungi world, understanding mycorrhiza and introducing the basics for creating natural dyes with mushrooms (how cool is that?!) and the designs are inspired by the fungi and plant world.
There are TEN sewing patterns included in the magazine ready for tracing off. The patterns come with many variations for differently skilled sewists and include UK sizes 6-32.

We’ve added an achingly cool Tessuti Fabrics pattern to the shop that’s too good not to share! The Myka Top is an oversized, boxy knit top that has a high, round neckline with a self-fabric neckband.
