If you follow my Instagram stories, you may have seen that the Bella Wrap Top was in my January / February plans in a smoky blue rayon jersey that I had leftover in my stash. However, when I actually pulled my fabric out, I didn’t even have half the amount needed for the top! I was super bummed, because I’d been really excited about the idea of starting each couple of months with a clear plan for my sewing. Even though my original fabric didn’t work out, I was able to stick to my original pattern plans while trying out this fun speckled knit. Check out the full post over on the Minerva Crafts blog today!
So get this – I made this awesome sweatshirt in June 2018. The pattern release got delayed, and then somehow there was a mix-up and I never realized that this pattern got released! I was casually scrolling through the Brindille & Twig website recently, when I found that – surprise! – this pattern finally did make it out into the world! So here’s my much-belated post on this pattern, truly written about a year ago!I didn’t change any of my originally written post, so if the timing of things (such as my pregnant belly) doesn’t quite add up with what you know of me today, that is probably why. Without further ado….
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. I was thrilled to be asked to participate in the Style Maker Fabrics Spring blog tour, as well as another collaboration with Pine Crest Fabrics, AND a new pattern promotion with Deer and Doe! 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 🙂
