Sunday Sew Love: 8 March

Eeek okay I think I’m ready for Spring! Even though we basically have Spring weather around here already. This winter has definitely reminded me why moving to California is always a good idea ;) (left) Merrick’s Art Color Blocked Fit & Flare | (top/center) A Fashionable Stitch Hollyburn (top/right) By Hand London Pattern Hacking Kim | (bottom) Scruffy Badger Time Linden Sweatshirt Until next time,

Sunday Sew Love: 1 March + SD Card Holder v.1

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,

Idea Board: Bellevue Top

I’m super excited to share that I’m a pattern tester for the new Bellevue top – coming soon from Kimberly at Straight Stitch Designs. It’s my first time as a pattern tester. Although I admit I haven’t made any of her other patterns yet, I love how all of her tops are simple with a twist. The Bellevue top is right along those same lines. It’s the first top I’ve sewn with raglan sleeves, so that’s fun on its own, but with the fabric-mixing and shirt tail hem, I feel like there are endless possibilities. I’ve made one version so far and cut fabric for two more, but the ideas abound for this one… [Inspiration photos pulled from Pinterest, of course :) – click on any of the pictures below to go to the individual pins/sources] A LITTLE BIT OF LACE    FLORALS / PATTERN MIXING     NEUTRALS       NEUTRALS WITH A TWIST   I’ll be sharing my test creations after the pattern comes out. I’m so excited to see what everyone else comes up with! …
