March / April 2019 Recap

Time for another Recap post! This two month interval was filled with collaborations – and for this reason, I didn’t sew much from my stash.

All of this on top of my planned quarterly make with Stylish Fabrics meant I didn’t have a lot of time or wiggle room for additional projects, but it did give me the opportunity to really think out each of these collaborations and actually come up with a really great combination of makes! See all the things I came up with in March and April 🙂

This is NOT that post…

I started putting these goals into action as soon as the new year started, and here’s a little rundown of how my first two month segment turned out!

OU/TX Kyoto Sweater

It’s time for some serious football here in Dallas!! When OU and UT meet up for football every October, it’s a pretty big deal in my group of people. Despite living in Texas, my husband and I bleed crimson and cream, and I needed to make sure I had something to wear to this year’s gameday that would fit over this giant 36-week bump, and clearly let everyone know which side I’m on! See what I came up with on the blog this morning!
