We’ve seen more of your projects posted this month than ever before, and we love it! The hustle and bustle of back to school and the coming change of seasons must have been a good motivator for making.
A couple of super cute bags by Pattern Patti. You can find the pdf patterns for these here!
Laminates! Didn’t Katie’s recovered vintage chairs turn out fabulous?
Heidi has been busy as always, making up clothes for her kids and birthday gift for their friends. Love her use of soft new Robert Kaufman denim.
Ruffle fabric legging adorableness. What little girl wouldn’t want these? Great job Rachael and Lindsay!
The possibilities are endless when sewing for kids. Sara made a beautiful fabric fringe decoration for her daughter’s pink first birthday party, Heidi’s made a fun car pillow for her son, Robot Inside made this owl bag, and Rachael made a laminate backpack for her daughter’s new school year.
If you’ve spent any time around our facebook page, you know that Jan sews A LOT. (Scroll down for more on Jan!) She made two more beautiful bags this month from Amy Butler patterns.
Another great bag in Cloud 9 fabric by Erin and adorable yellow Bo Peep dress by Karla. I love your model’s enthusiasm!
How AMAZING is this quilt by Nikki? She used our Moda Bella solid white, and the pattern is from a book we carry, Elizabeth Hartman’s Practical Guide to Patchwork. What a beautiful, satisfying finish!
And I couldn’t resist showing off these great messenger bags our own talented Julie made for her girls. Bag on the left is the Amy Butler messenger bag pattern, and bag on the right is out of the Oliver & S Little Things to Sew book. I love them!
Have you met Jan? She is a sewing machine! Well, not a sewing-machine… you know what I mean. We are all always so impressed at how quickly her projects pop up on the facebook page after she has come into the shop for fabric. I just love this picture of her with her dog. (I hope you don’t mind me stealing it from your facebook Jan!)
So let’s get to know her a little better. How in the world does she find all that sewing time?!
