Hi! Sewing Tuesday is on a break this week as we have a new puppy! His name is Hopper and he's a Border Collie. We picked him up from the farm on Monday.

This is me and Ben at a party a couple of Christmases ago. I don't look like me but I think Ben looks like Ben although his hair is way too big!

Hi! I saw in the news that people have discovered a new thing about penguins! When penguins huddle together for warmth they do a kind of Mexican wave to shuffle everyone around, making sure everyone has a turn in the middle!
Watch the video here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-13616778
This Mexican wave penguin huddle is pretty cute. But a Mexican wave baby penguin huddle would be even cuter!
Here's how to make your very own Baby Penguin. Maybe you could make a whole huddle! Let's just start with one though.

This week I'm going to show you how to make a super cool Super Hero Costume that you can wear yourself or give as a present to a dad or a granddad for Father's Day. Better still you could get together and make a costume each.

This week I'm going to show you the basic techniques that I use when I'm sewing the Sewing Tuesday projects.You can go through the information here and practice it on a scrap of fabric, or go ahead and start any Sewing Tuesday project and come back to this page if you get stuck. :)
- Right side - This is the patterned side of the cloth, or the side that you want to show on the outside.
- Wrong side - This is the back of the cloth, the un-patterned side, the side you don't want people to be able to see. Usually the wrong side of the fabric ends up on the inside of your sewing.
- Seam - The line where the stitches hold two bits of cloth together.
