Girl Charlee UK & Europe Knitriffic Sewing Blogs: So Zo What Do You Know? & New Fabrics

Our February Knitriffic Blog features "So, Zo... What do you know?" a sewing blog written by the multi talented Zoe.  Zoe is a blogger, pattern designer, sewing teacher, craft fair organiser, mother and creator of the 'Me-Made-May' challenge (where does she find the time!!??)  Her popular blog has been running since 2008 and is jam packed with amazing tutorials for both new clothing and refashioning projects, some great patterns and lots more! 
We're very proud to have had our fabric featured a few times on her blog for projects Zoe has worked on - 

So Zo has free patterns (although you should definitely buy her a coffee for them!) - 
Why not try these with one of our Cotton Lycra range - 
or even!
She also has the amazing "Dolores" Batwing pattern with dress, top and tunic variations 
Anchor print short sleeved dress version by Zoe (So Zo): Striped long sleeved top length version of the Dolores batwing pattern by Zoe (So Zo): Solid black long sleeved tunic length version of Dolores Batwing Pattern by Zoe (So Zo):
which work perfectly with our Cotton Jersey or Cotton Lycra ranges - 
We particularly love her "Me Made May" challenge which encourages people to sew/knit/refashion/crochet/upcycle garments.  The challenge has been running for 6 years so if you haven't joined in yet, make sure this year you check it out!

Check out the SoZo blog, find your perfect project and then head over to to find the perfect fabric!
