We made a Sewing Planner!

We suspect you guys are like us and spend far too much time planning your latest makes, when reeeeally you should be doing something else more 'serious'...? Yup, thought so! Welllll, let's not fight the urge any longer we say! So, we hope you'll like that we indulged our inner sewing geek and created our very own Sewing Planner :)

We really wanted this Sewing Planner to not only help us all create a detailed (and pretty) masterplan of our next handmade creation, but also to generally organise our fabric stash and help us keep track and tick off our sewing techniques.

So, what's in it then? 

  • Project planner
    Design and plan all aspects of your latest sewing creation, from the fabric you want to use, to the pattern you've chosen, details of any alterations, a checklist of tools needed, a croquis to bring it to life on, space to create your mini-moodboard and a notes section. 

  • Fabric Stash log 
    Hands up who has more fabric bursting out of every spare nook and cranny than they can keep track of! Use the fabric stash log to add in a swatch of everything you have, complete with yardage and fabric composition.

  • Sewing techniques log 
    List the sewing techniques you still want to achieve and keep track of those you're mastering along the way. 

  • Six classic croquis body types
    We want to cater for as many of you as possible, so our Sewing Planner comes with six different classic body type options!

    This croquis selection comes within the project planner, as well as on separate sheets in three different layouts for general sketching. 

  • PDF download 
    Because this is a PDF download you buy once and reprint forever! It also means that making mistakes is no big deal, just print off another copy and start over :) 

If you get your hands on our Sewing Planner please please please do share your creations with us on instagram by tagging us @byhandlondon or hashtagging #BHLsewingplanner - we can't wait to see how you use it!

    Hi Dave, we will certainly take this on board!! I can only imagine how frustrating it must be that there’s so much in sewing land for women, and so much less for men…. I’m sure we can get some male croquis’ in there when we next update ;) watch this space…!

    You guys just get better and better and better. I LOVE that there is a chubby croquis who looks like me!!! This is brilliant, all round. (pun intended)

    Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!
