Spring is here, and it's time to start spring cleaning! Not your whole house though - that would be silly. Let's just focus on the important thing - spring cleaning your sewing room!
It's time for Fave Fabric Friday again, and after making a dress for myself in the lovely lightest of cotton, I'm on the search for more pretty dress fabrics. I'm not really a fan of floral prints and generally prefer geometric designs, but Petite Garden in Lawn by Sevenberry for Robert Kaufman Fabrics caught my eye as something feminine without being an over-the-top floral.
One way you can participate in the Threadistry sewing community is to add your "Sew and Tells". This is your review of a sewing pattern or tutorial, and a chance to share your sewing. There is also a prize each month, randomly selected from the users who have added a Sew and Tell.
Today, I'm going to show you how to quickly add a Sew and Tell to Threadistry.
This week for Fave Fabric Friday I went in search of fabrics for my 9-year-old son and stumbled across the True Love fabric collection by Libs Elliott for Andover Fabrics. I love the modern geometric designs and simple colour palette of black, white and green.
My daughter has a wardrobe full of handmade dresses, but I have hardly any. P&M Patterns is a French sewing pattern company that have patterns in English as well as French, and I jumped at the chance to try one of their patterns for a blog tour. Whilst they have girl's patterns as well, it was time to sew a dress for me, and Mademoiselle Josephine looked like my kind of dress!
Ella & Ollie has colours like Strawberry, Apricot, Seaglass and Daisy and gives a splash of colour for Spring without being too over-the-top. There are floral prints that have a slight vintage feel.
The Poinsettia Party Dress sewing pattern from GYCT Designs is a fun party dress with simple details that make it look special. It's a quick sew for a confident beginner to intermediate sewist. These fabrics would make it perfect for a flower girl dress.
It's time for another Fave Fabric Friday, and this week, it's going to be a bit random. My 9-year-old son loves chickens. I don't know why. We don't have chickens. Today, I'm pecking around for chicken fabric.
