The time has come to wrap up my time with Boro from Parson Gray. It’s been so fun to show you great ways to incorporate these prints into girl’s clothing, but today I’m going to show you what you can make for the boys!

One Fabric Nation- Little but Fierce

This week I’m wrapping up my Boro posts, which means it is shipping out to stores AND there will be another giveaway! Happy dance, right? I’ve loved twisting and turning the expectations of this masculine line from Parson Gray. It really is unlike anything else out there in the fabric world and I’m so happy to get to be a part of it!

One Thimble Issue 9- Timeless Treasure Skirt by LLK

Where do I start with One Thimble? It has been my pleasure to be a part of a good chunk of the blog tours for this amazing E-zine. I mean, what’s not to love about a great PDF mag that talks all things sewing and patterns and tips and tricks and . . . ALL THE THINGS! I have so much love for this brand and I’m super excited to be a part of this blog tour for Issue 9, which happens to be their 2nd birthday issue!

One Fabric Nation- Boro by Parson Gray

I think I’ve recently discovered something interesting about myself. People see all of the cute things I make for my kids and say, “Oh, you must love to sew!” While that is true, I DO love to sew and make something fabulous from a pile of fabric and trims, in reality, it’s really about the fabric. If it was just about the sewing, I could make something out of any fabric and love it. For me, it has to be THE perfect fabric. Certain prints and colors move me in ways that others don’t! I also love a challenge and I like to use fabrics in ways that people might not normally expect. This is true of my obsession with Parson Gray fabric.

Pattern Hack: Emory to the Max

One of the fun opportunities I’ve had as the assistant at Izzy & Ivy Designs is to dabble further into the art of the pattern hack. Don’t get me wrong…I really love sewing the patterns as written. They each have their own unique details and everything, but sometimes you just want to sew something fresh and kick things up a notch. So today I’m showing off a maxified version of the Emory Dress! It’s really pretty easy and I hope that you’ll try it for your sweet girl!

The Limon Dress by Willow & Co.

I had an opportunity to sew a sample dress for a new Willow and Co. pattern last week, so I thought I’d take a minute to share some images with you.

Charlotte Apron Dress, Parson Gray Style

Last month Lindsay, from The Cottage Mama, posted about this amazing contest and giveaway on her blog.  All you had to do was sew up one of her gorgeous patterns and then post it in her group on Facebook.  Easy peasy, right?  I didn’t think I was going to have the time, but then people…

The Twist Shift Dress by Ainslee Fox for One Thimble E-zine

I have several PDF patterns from Australian designers, but sadly I’ve not taken the time to sew any of them, which is truly my loss!  I was given a chance to sew up some patterns by the talented Jen Kennedy from Ainslee Fox.  These 2 patterns are a part of the One Thimble E-zine, which…

The Elements Collection

Ever since I laid eyes on it, I’ve been a huge fan of Parson Gray‘s fabric. For those of you that don’t know, the genius behind Parson Gray is designer/rocker David Butler. A.K.A. “Mr. Amy Butler.” I had a few pieces in my stash ‘o fabric and I had no idea what I was going…
