Video Tutorial

It was time for another free video tutorial and this time we popped up a video on how we like to create zipper pockets. There are several different ways to do this, however after a bit of trial and error, we’ve found over time that our method seems to be the easiest to follow, and the most fail safe as well. Check out the tutorial for Creating a Zipper Pocket today!

In all manner of randomness, today is Wear Your Pyjamas to Work Day! LOL! 😂👚 So, we thought we would take this chance to tell you some random facts about the Andrie Designs Team! 👋⠀ ⠀ Lisa "Boss Lady" (affectionately nicknamed by her testers) – absolutely loves the books and TV series called Outlander. 📺 Had a lifelong dislike for exercise until the start last year and now thoroughly enjoys working out 5 days a week with @fitnessblender . 💪 Has been sewing most of her life, but recently learnt how to crochet and is enjoying crafting in a different way. 🧶 ⠀ ⠀ Jane "Right Hand Gal" @smore_house – Is a massive Harry Potter fan (Gryffindor robe an all). 🧹 Wears red lipstick like every day and night forever. 💄 Has been sewing since she was 10! ✂️ ⠀ ⠀ Aimee "Blogger Girl" @lilbirdsdesign – Has a serious pink obsession. 💗 Is a self professed crazy cat lady. 🐱 Nail art is her life and she can paint just about anything on tiny canvases that are fingernails! 💅 ⠀ ⠀ We hope you liked getting to know us a little bit more! Why not share a random fact about yourself below too and happy ‘wear your pyjamas to work’ day! 😂👇
