About Sweet Cinnamon Roses

You want to be creative and you’re ready to get started. 

You’re in need of an escape from your stressful day and you really don’t want to think about how to (insert that zipper, add lining, sew with tricky materials) anymore. The last thing you need is to figure it all out by yourself - and to be honest… why should you? Surely someone has that figured out for you already! If this is you…


Your new best sewing buddy - carefully walking you through every step. Almost as if I’m sitting right next to you. 

Laura Cunningham, owner and girl boss behind Sweet Cinnamon Roses

I’m Laura Cunningham, and I specialise in step-by-step sewing patterns showing you how to create the cutest little projects with confidence. I strongly believe that my patterns are all about learning new skills. From improv piecing, to inserting zippers and sewing with vinyl… I’m your gal! Equipped with those skills - you can literally make anything you put your mind to. Because you, my friend, are truly in charge of your sewing machine!

In 2012 I got my first sewing machine (for under a £100 of Amazon) and back then I had no idea what to do with it. I literally didn’t even know how to turn her on - not even speaking of sewing a straight line. But with a little determination and the help of my trusted seam ripper, I fell in love with sewing and quilting. Very much the best hobby in the world. Years later here I am…now working with Janome, Aurifil, Prym and Love Patchwork and Quilting but most important with YOU! Teaching you how to create with confidence is my true calling. Genuinely - I love it!

You can download your copy of my patterns right here in my shop. Ready for direct download. Start sewing with me straight away - you don’t even need to print anything, my friend.  

Are you a visual learner or feel you need a little extra help? Why not join our free Facebook group! There I provide you with lots of extra help, video tutorials and answer all the questions you might have. Did I mention - it’s totally free!

I wish I had a mentor back in 2012 - someone who could have shown me how to actually thread that little sewing machine. Oh boy, I was so scared I would sew right through my fingers and you know what… it got really close (several times). But seriously. In the end sewing is not really that hard and I would be delighted to show you what I’ve learned. Talking you through step-by-step. Because zippers don’t have to be tricky or complicated. You can sew a straight line - then you can tackle every zipper. Pinkie promise!

You ready? Let’s go.
