Have any of you ever won the big pot in the lotteri? I won 50kr a couple of weeks ago, thats little over $6.00 so not exactly the big pot hahaha! But early this sommer I was chosen to be a Sewing Portfolios Ambassador and I got 3 yards of fabric from Michael Miller to play with, now thats what I call winning the big pot!! I have been treating my fabric like gold and going back and forth on what to make from it. This is the first time I have been given fabric so this was truly a big deal for me and. Well, I finally found the patterns I wanted to use and be warned this post will be long!
Here is my cat in her top with birds on it! Kind of a mixed signal going on here, she suddenly chose to wear the mask and she is the star of the photoshoot so thats how we roll today.
Wait what? Back already? And I’ll even be back again very soon!
I’ve gotten myself in a bit of a deadline pickle, but I’ll do my very best to meet them all cause I’m not about to let anybody down!
I don’t know what it is but Belgians seem to have some kind of sewing superpower, must be something in the water over there. They also seem to have access to the prettiest fabrics available, the kind the rest of us can only dream of. So you can imagine my excitement when I was asked to join in on an Instagram tour featuring The Vienna pattern by two Belgian designers @beletoile and @kaatjenaaisels
Anita has had such a growth spurt this summer that almost all her knit dresses are now too small. So what’s a sewing mom to do? I think you can guess the answer, wink-wink!
I saw a call for sewers to participate in a blog tour featuring The Cosmo Dress from Sewpony and all it took to apply was to comment on the Facebook post. I never in million years thought I would get to join in on the fun so I wasn’t even paying attention to my messenger and it took me a day or two to see the message that I was in. I panicked and was afraid I had missed my chance, but luckily all was good and here I am! I have to admit that I have a bit of a stage fright being in the company of such great bloggers! The same is not to be said about my daughter as you will see later on in this post. Stick around (or at least scroll down) to the end for a discount code.
