SEWING || MAKE MY WARDROBE - PHINNEY RIDGE CARDIGAN

SEWING || MAKE MY WARDROBE - PHINNEY RIDGE CARDIGAN

If you've been following along on social media and my newsletter you will have seen that my friend (and fellow knitwear designer) Andrea Rangel and I are getting each other motivated to build our handmade wardrobes by having a casual sew along/knit along called "Make My Wardrobe". We've got a plan to examine our current wardrobes and get making the pieces that are missing! I'm so excited! Our focus will be on pieces that compliment the clothes we already have, in particularly our lovely handmade pieces like hand knit sweaters and more. We plan to try to make the same sorts of things, but not always the same patterns and not always at the same pace.

SEWING || OBSERVER FABRIC TOUR - PETAL POUCHES

I love zippered pouches. I simply can't seem to have enough of them. So when I got asked to join in the Observer Fabric Tour by my lovely and oh, so talented friend April Rhodes, I knew I had to sew up Anna Graham's (of Noodlehead) new pattern for her Petal Pouches. First off, I'm absolutely 100% obsessed with April's new fabric line Observer. I always love her lines but oh boy does this one hit home for me. It's absolutely stunning! I sincerely love each print. And the fact that's it's Art Gallery Fabrics is icing on the cake. You all know how much I love me some AGF!

SEWING || MAMMOTH FLANNEL SHIRT DRESS - CRAFTSY SEWING KIT REVIEW

The weather may be warming up and summer on it's way, but I'm still loving flannel! I've had my eye on trying some of the Robert Kaufman Mammoth Flannel and when I got the chance to review the Mammoth Flannel Shirt Dress Kit on Craftsy I thought it would be a fun garment to sew up! I liked that this shirt dress had hem options and sleeve options - there is short sleeve, 3/4 length and sleeveless! I knew that this pattern would be versatile for year round wear and I could easily make this dress in a variety of fabrics.
