As part of the Raspberry Creek Fabrics Blog Tour, I shared the Boo! Designs Swimmers Rash Guard with a side stripe running along the sleeve and side. I thought I'd write a separate post with instructions on how I did it!
It's new pattern time! Itch to Stitch launched the Tallinn Top and Dress today - this is a fitted knit top/dress with princess seams, center front seam, and options for a peplum, top, or dress. You'll need fabric with about 50% horizontal stretch and good recovery. I used Cotton Lycra for mine but you can use any jersey, double-brushed poly, ITY or French Terry.
For the last few months, Simple Life Pattern Company have been testing their new collection and TODAY is the day it releases! I tested the Ella dress - a knit dress/tunic with an open back and option for an asymmetrical circle skirt and my daughter just adores it!
A friend recently introduced me to Threadsmitten, a small online business based local to me in Fairfax, Virginia specializing in European fabrics, notions, and non-Euro indie paper sewing patterns. The owner, Rachel, sent me some of her fabrics to try out and share - and I am just so in love with them!
I’m so excited that my kids are starting to read the Harry Potter books! While I have the series in a combo of paperback and hardcover - and some British, some Australian, and some US editions - we’ve been borrowing the e-audiobooks from the library and listening to them instead. And of course, one of the best outcomes from getting my kids into HP, is that my daughter picked out this HP inspired fabric from the current pre-order round at MK*Designs!
Just in time for Christmas, Duchess and Hare have released two new holiday dress patterns! I sewed up the new Duchess & Hare Everything Nice Dress for both my girls, and they do look so adorable in them!

(These are all companies I have used - not just every deal out there.) Disclaimer: I've provided affiliate links… Continue reading My Favorite Black Friday Deals!
