Last summer, I had a little fun sewing up Father’s Day presents for my husband and his brother. Early in the Spring, I recognized that I had somehow ended up with a small collection of button down shirts from my husband and his brother that had ripped, torn, or otherwise worn out in a way that was no longer usable. I’d kept them to the side, thinking that someday it would be fun to use the fabric to make something new. As I was poking around looking for what I might make next, I came across these old shirts and realized that I had a great opportunity!
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 🙂
SPRING is here, winter is gone, and bright colors and florals are ready to break out of the closet again! I couldn’t be happier! When Michelle of Style Maker Fabrics asked me to be a part of the Spring Blog Tour, I was thrilled – one of my favorite ways to celebrate anything, especially great weather, is with a great new me-made outfit. Check out my stop on the tour!!!
So this baby is GROWING, and I’m getting to the point that the majority of my clothes just don’t fit anymore! I’ve invested in two cute pairs of maternity shorts, and between these, my scrubs, some knit dresses and a couple of Ogden Camis, I’m figuring out how to make it through the summer. However, I remembered that when I made my first Sew Caroline Coffeeshop Dress last summer, there was a great maternity hack provided by Caroline. I looked it back up, and was excited to get to work with some new fabric I got from a (pretty stinking large) haul from Knit Pop!
