Creative Sewing Challenge with the Blue Dot Georgia Top!

A little while back, the wonderful Melissa from Mahlica Designs invited me to participate in a Creative Sewing Challenge with Blue Dot Patterns. (Side note: I’ve been loving following along with her Core Wardrobe project… definitely something I’ve thought about doing but haven’t jumped in yet) :) So needless to say, I immediately accepted the challenge! Basically it was to take one of the three Blue Dot patterns — Georgia, Margo, or Dover —  and make it your own. Challenge: accepted! ;) So then came my thought process… I initially chose the Margo blouse. I was thinking something with lace overlay for the holidays or I thought about stealing the plaid fabric I have in my fall sewing plans and going more casual.

Well I think I finally got my sew-jo back! I have a whole list of very specific projects on my to-do list now and fabric picked out to go with each of them so I’m excited. Here’s version 1 of my SD card holder… there are a few things I want to change about it so I might end up with a few before I’m satisfied… but this will work for now. Much better than a plastic baggie :/ There are a slew of these on Etsy but I wanted to make my own and couldn’t find any instructions anywhere… so I’m creating some. I also like this tutorial from See Kate Sew, but I wanted more space for more cards. I seem to have acquired quite a few over the years (in other words, I forget to put one in my camera before almost every trip I go on so I have to buy a new one each time… oops) :) On to the topic of the day! Pretty dresses and cozy sweaters :) …

Sunday Sew Love: 15 February

I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine’s Day yesterday! It was a lazy day for us, and I actually had a nice chunk of sewing time, which was amazing. Then we had a nice romantic dinner – Chinese takeout in front of the TV! This is 29, I suppose. lol So I’ve been feeling the love this week in the sewing world! Here are a few of my favorites: (top/left) navybluethreads Lady in Red | (top/right) Shona Stitches Marlborough Bra (bottom/left) lower your presser foot Vogue 2659 | (bottom/right) Megan Nielsen Design Diary Briar Valentine Strikes Again Until next time,
