The Sew Turtle Story

Sew Turtle was born from a love and passion for sewing. For many years my old sewing machine lay unused and unloved. Then one day, I looked at the beautiful crochet blanket I had inherited – ‘Granny’s Blanket’. I wanted my children to have something special that I had lovingly made for them.
So, my husband bought me a new sewing machine for Christmas. I attended some quilting workshops at a local sewing shop and made unique quilts for both my children. My husband got one too!
My local sewing shop was running a workshop to make a foldaway shopping bag and I decided it would be great to try something different. From that moment I was hooked on Bagmaking and became a Bagineer! I devoured every workshop, book, online tutorial and pattern I could find and over time, my confidence and skills grew. In fact, I now teach Bagmaking workshops at the same sewing shop where it all began.
But, there are only so many bags you can make for yourself (honestly!), so I started to make for family and friends. I also wanted to try new ideas, so expanded my repertoire to include purses, wallets, notebook covers, sewing with cork and anything else that took my fancy.
Now, I am happy and excited to share my makes with you. Everything you see is lovingly handmade by me and I make every item unique in some way. I’m always looking for new ideas and fabric combinations, so let me know if you have your own idea that I can help make a reality.
I hope you love what I sew as much as I do.
