We’ve had a fresh batch of patterns from one of our newest designers to join the Fold Line family – Juliana Martejevs. The PDF patterns come with video tutorials instead of traditional written instructions (in German with English subtitles), which is great for visual learners.
The new patterns include a range of projects for knit fabrics and Nelly, a DIY coat you put together completely without a sewing machine using only a simple hand embroidery technique. Perfect for slow sewing in front of the telly.
Sizing: UK 6/8 – 20
