Sumac leaf from our garden on a beach bag, may be a while before I'm on a beach but this is so lovely to print. Enjoying fabric paints so much😍 I'm spending this hedgeknits hiatus learning new skills and exploring colour. #hedgeknitshq #hedgeknits #knittersgonnaknit #fabricprint#fabrics #textiles#print#printoncotton #wiwt #wiw#slowfashion #newskills

Today #memademay2020 is a top I hacked together using @_diydaisy rectangle top tutorial, I made it longer in the body and added a patch pocket. The linen I dyed with avocado stones and red onion skins first .its my #hedgeknitshq top and I think it really represents my indie dye business. I'm wearing my @sowsearuk headscarf again because I love it 😍 I've been wearing a block print cotton scarf I made last Summer every day too,some things become an every day wear. #hedgeknits#sewingroom maker #knittersgonnaknit #beginnersewing #indiedyer#naturalfibres #natuturallydyed

I made my skirt inspired by a @_diydaisy tutorial, instructions are so good and perfect if you are scared of paper patterns, I'm using paper patterns only because lovely @the_make_room_uk taught me,thanks Ellen. I've enough left over to make a top so that may be next. 😍 super pleased with this skirt and can totally see more in my future 🔮 #knittersgonnaknit #maker #indiedyer #botanicalcolours #colourfromnature #chippenham #slowlife #slowfashion #ethicalclothing #ethicalfashion #yarnlover #knittersgonnaknit #wiw #wiwt #beginnersewing #sew#hedgeknits#diydaisyskirt

Tada! My dye workshop tunic .so things I've learnt are: 1. Dyeing fabric is completely different in some ways to animal fibre but similar in lots of ways too. 2. I forgot to scour the linen! This is interesting as I always scour wool and forgot when working with linen !good to see how it can change the uptake of dye and it highlights the importance of organic fibres ,this linen isn't quality linen and will have layers of chemicals from production which you MUST clean off before dyeing. 3. Colours look different on plant fibres compared to wool fibres, like dramatic differences which I love. 4. Dreaming of soft heavier linen for my next experiment 😍. 5. Sewing up what was in my head worked pretty well proving practice gives you confidence to just make and see what happens. #hedgeknitswool #hedgeknits#hedgeknitshq #sew#dyetunic#naturallydyed#wiw#wiwt#maker#indiedyer

Rinsing linen yesterday , It dried quickly ,the beauty of linen. I then spent the afternoon cutting the fabric and making. I've a few more things to do but really pleased with it. It is a good experiment and planning to dye some more expensive linen soon and fine tune my process. I think these kinds of projects are my favourite I just started off with a bowl of avocado stones ,some dried onion skins and a mtr of white linen and ended up with a lush dye workshop tunic. #hedgeknits#hedgeknitshq #linen#hedgeknits#maker#knitter#sew#dyeworkshop#indiedyer#create#maker#slowdyer#colourfromnature

Makes during #isewlated2020, 2x skirts and 3x tops and a jumper I'm working on is coming along nicely, actually its nearly finished about half a 2nd sleeve to go and the cuffs on both, need to find the correct needle for that, ALWAYS looking for needles ! 🤣It's been a time for thinking and embracing simple things. #hedgeknitshq #hedgeknits#beginnersewing #sewsewsew #imadethis #makersmovement #make #sew

So I've been making my own clothes for a while now and I love how comfy they are to wear and most importantly they are 'me'. When you are 5ft10 its nice to be able to customise length etc... I've a few more makes on the list but for now I'm enjoying wearing clothes I've made and slowly making a new jumper and always have socks on the go, making when I have free time .In this pic I've made my cardie, my hat and my skirt 😍. Get making guys if you want don't think you can't do it ,we can ALL learn new skillz you just need to go for it.#wiw#imademyskirt #imademyclothes#indiedyer#hedgeknitshq #hedgeknits#makersmovement #Memadewardrobe #memadeeveryday

It's nearly time and we are ready. Anyone else growing this year? We are in that middle of building works but we are not going to miss growing our veg , herbs and dye plants this year. I'm going to plant around the moon cycles , it doesn't have to be overly complex just get yourself a moon cycle chart ,there is lots of information online, if you are growing this way I'd love to see your progress. #growyourown#learnnewthings#ourgarden#hedgeknitshq #hedgeknits#indie #indiedyed #knittersgonnaknit #maker #indiedyer #botanicalcolours #colourfromnature #chippenham #slowlife #slowfashion #ethicalclothing #ethicalfashion #yarnlover #knittersgonnaknit #wiw #wiwt #yarnlover #eachskeinisunique

Home. I'm excited to share this lovely jumper I got on ebay, a proper @avocaireland jumper. I grew up 7km from the handweavers, I would go for lunch there with my brother as they served the best soup and salads, ohhhhh and the cakes. Their set up is beautiful so if you're ever in Dublin head south to Wicklow, surrounded by woodland the best walks and pop in for the best blankets in the woollen mill,knits and of course cake. #avoca #jumper#irishknit#wool#yarn#woods#cake#wicklow#knitters#maker#hedgeknitshq#hedgeknits#avocahandweavers
