Book Description

Making clothes for little ones is so much fun whether you’re sewing for your own children, grandchildren or friends’ kids. Tilly & the Buttons: Mini Makes is the go-to resource for clothes making for babies and children, written by sewing trailblazer and mum of two Tilly Walnes.

The book includes six sewing patterns for kids aged 0 to 12 years, plus multiple variations totalling 24 projects. Cute, comfortable and practical, these are the kinds of clothes children will want to wear every day and have crucially passed the playground test.

With clear step-by-step instructions presented in Tilly and the Buttons’ signature user-friendly style, the book is suitable for sewists of all levels. It’s also packed with practical tips and inspiration on topics such as choosing fabrics for childrenswear, embellishment ideas, involving little ones in sewing, and more.

Full-scale pattern sheets are included in the book ready to trace off, or alternatively you can download and print PDF versions.

About the Author

About Tilly Walnes

On a whim and feeling the urge to fill a creative void, Tilly Walnes signed up for a three-day dressmaking course. It was love at first stitch. Her new-found joy in sewing her own clothes  but lack of friends who could also sew  led Tilly to start her blog, Tilly and the Buttons, so that she could share her experiences and swap tips with other would-be dressmakers. Within three years of first threading a needle Tilly's blog is the most popular sewing blog in the UK and she appeared as a contestant in the first series of The Great British Sewing Bee, the only contestant to design and draft her own garment designs. Between teaching dressmaking classes at sewing schools in both London and Birmingham, Tilly is developing her own range of dressmaking patterns.
