Playing with Reverse Applique and Alison Glass Fabrics

This past October, I had the exciting privilege to attend the International Quilt Market in Houston, Texas. 2 full days of browsing new fabrics and products, as well as getting to meet internet friends, both old and new. I got to meet some great fabric designers and see what gorgeous things could be made with their fabrics.

Handmade Holiday- Izzy & Ivy Style

I’m so excited to kick of the Handmade Holiday Blog Tour with a few cute ideas from Izzy & Ivy Designs! I’ve sewed them up with some great Riley Blake prints, and they’re perfect for those that might want colors that aren’t so GREEN and RED. You know? This also gives you a little more stretch if you want this to be wearable into the new year, too.

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!

Izzy & Ivy Designs Sew Along Day Five

After another round of “Increase My Bandwidth” we are up and running again. Thanks again to the amazing ladies that are sewing up their gorgeous Tallulah Dresses and Tunics! I have a mashup planned for August, but I’ll have another sew along planned for the fall, so if you liked this one, keep hanging out with us!

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.
