While April was a quieter month than usual with the worldwide Covid-19 situation, we still managed to share a few goodies throughout the month for you to enjoy! Check out our round-up below to see all that we got up to!
Last month we had a fun little round-up for you of one of our newest patterns – the Gemma Carryall Pouch! Take a look at the cute little pouches below and be inspired by your fellow bag makers in the April edition of Customer Creations!
Tips & Tricks
Last month we did something fun for you! Aprils tip for you was how to pick fabrics for your next project. It’s a question that comes up when we launch new patterns and our testers share their creations! So let’s hop right into and get a little art lesson before you pick fabrics for your next sewing project! Head to the Picking Fabrics post to get all the tips!
Free Video Tutorial
In April we had a quick little video for you on how we like to stitch curves – both when joining panels together and when topstitching them. The video is full of lots of little tips and tricks which will hopefully help next time you have to tackle stitching a curve! Check out the Stitching Curves free video today to learn more!
Lisa shared some fun behind-the-scenes shots and even a couple of Stories on Instagram in April. Make sure you’re following @andriedesigns so you never miss a post or story!

Buttons for days!! 😍😍😍 My generous Mum has been spending her time while on lockdown in New Zealand knitting premmie cardigans to donate to the NICU unit of her local hospital 👶 and was running out of buttons. She just happened to ask if I had any white or clear buttons she could have… 🤔 . After a good hour or so sorting though my ‘white buttons’ jar 🤍, I came out with 36 sets to send her! 💗 Many are sets of the same buttons, and some have a combination of 2 and 2 that are similar and coordinate nicely with each other. . I don’t know about you but for me, it always feels good to help others, even in small little indirect ways like this. 🥰 . Have you helped someone out recently with things from your craft stash? Feel free to let us know in the comments below! 👇
