My daughter has been in dire need of more cardigans, and so she was thrilled when I obliged her with a new one today! Read More...
Because I clearly didn't have enough things to do last week, I also found myself testing the new Gothenburg Top from Itch to Stitch. What can I say? I really love Itch to Stitch patterns so I try to prioritize their pattern tests!
My husband doesn't get a whole lot of sewing love. I've made him a grand total of 4 things: a woodworking apron, a star wars themed t-shirt (plus the wearable muslin), a really awesome jacket, and finally a Star Wars themed hoodie! Up until a few days before Christmas, I had no plans to actually… Continue reading Finally: Hoodie for my Husband!
Time for another Itch to Stitch Sew Beautiful make! The Carlsbad Cardigan is my FAVORITE thing in the upcoming book from Itch to Stitch, Sew Beautiful: Make Stylish Handmade Clothing with Simple Stitch-And-Wear Patterns. As I mentioned in yesterday's post about the Prague Top, this book includes 8 beginner friendly patterns, perfect for a capsule wardrobe, and releases on December 8 in both Kindle and paperback versions, and you can preorder it right now!

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!
The new Itch to Stitch Cape Cod Capelet (try saying that 10 times fast!) is available now and is a perfect quick sew AND gift for the holiday season!
I tested this garment last week, and it is seriously the fastest pattern test I think I've been on! You could really cut and sew this one in under an hour!
As I mentioned in my last post, my 3 year old is Owl obsessed. She is constantly hooting, flapping, requesting to watch videos on owl pellets, demands owl books when we visit the library each week, and has been gradually amassing a collection of cute, stuffed owls. She was over the moon when I showed… Continue reading Misusu Dia Tunic & Boo! Leggings
This month we're pulling out less popular patterns from the Itch to Stitch catalog and giving them some love! The rule was that no more than 2 bloggers could use the same pattern. With 24 bloggers on this tour, you're bound to find a big variety of new loves! And there's a **GIVEAWAY** and a **SALE**. So read on ;-).
One of the indy sewing pattern highlights every year is the release of the new Jalie pattern collection! As a Jalie promoter, we start seeing the pattern line drawings a few months before the actual release and then have to keep quiet about them until they actually get released! TORTURE! The new collection has 12… Continue reading Jalie Henri Pants & Alex Sweatshirt Release
