Just thought I’d drop in a quick post about a new release out today, the Giverney Blazer from Winter Wear Designs!
I’m working on stepping up my fashion game here. OK, I’m trying, anyway. Luckily for me, it’s the ladies’ turn for the Bundle Up sewing pattern sale from Pattern Revolution! The sale just started today, and I get to help kick it off with my Petal Perfect Skirt from Little Lizard King!
A group of bloggers launched something new today called The Pattern Exam!
I have been furiously working behind the scenes for the last few weeks and neglecting my own blog (OK, I was doing that anyway) to get this ready. Another blogger came up with the awesome idea of testing various categories of sewing patterns out there and putting it into reviews that are easy for others to read. Rather than vote a winner or loser, we prefer to give a breakdown of features so consumers can pick what is best for them.
We worked on underwear patterns this month, which was actually really fun! I’ve been meaning to sew undies for my kids for a long time now. For variety of reviews, I picked to make them for my oldest. Luckily, all the patterns cover her size!
Please take a few minutes and check out my post and all the rest of the awesome bloggers’ reviews on the site! We’d love to hear how this has inspired you to pick a new pattern, and please leave suggestions on what you might like reviewed in the future!
Happy Thursday! Today I have a really easy and customizable FREE pattern to share with you! I kept seeing a ton of these drape cardigans out there, but nothing in a circular shape like I see in a lot of knitting patterns. So I thought I’d put one together, and I’d give others the chance to grab it too. I’m throwing this up despite my lingering illness, so please forgive my lack of a worn garment on me! You’ll have to do with this lovely line drawing for now. I’ll feel better soon to show of mine. I hope!
I can’t resist when my favorite designers all get together for some awesome new pattern releases! The latest Bundle Up for Girls is a winner for sure. I found awesome patterns for both my girls, despite their differences.
I’ll be back in a few days with some actual made things for the new year. But today I wanted to pass on info about this super huge DIY bundle that just started today! It’s the Ultimate DIY Bundle, and it’s only available for 6 days!
My go to emergency gift for teachers and aunts and neighbors is a sugar scrub. Who doesn’t love relaxing and feeling good? This winter, I went with orange and peppermint! These are an awesome and thoughtful gift, plus all the ingredients can be found at Whole Foods or other market, and you may have most in your kitchen already.
We’ve made it to Pattern Parcel #7! And it’s the last parcel of the year with one of my favorite things to sew- handbags. When I saw the list of patterns this time, I knew what I needed to make. And I already had the pattern. The Betty Bowler by Swoon Patterns.
