Warp & Weft Sewing Society

Wednesday, November 19, 2014
For this month's Warp & Weft Sewing Society project, I enjoyed sewing one of my favourite original designs using some beautiful prints from the Bungalow Collection by Joel Dewberry for Freespirit Fabric.

I couldn't wait to sew up a pair of the newly improved Bubble Pocket Shorts in Bungalow Swallow.  The deep purple print is so lovely and paired with some tights, it's a perfect outfit for fall.  Empress Grass was used for the waistband facing to compliment Bungalow Swallow.  

The new Bubble Pocket Shorts pattern is scheduled to re-release on Friday, November 21.  

This post is sponsored by Warp & Weft and the fabric used was complimentary.  
All opinions, as always, are my own.

Betty Skirt Tour

Thursday, November 13, 2014

Today, I have the pleasure of participating in the Betty Skirt Tour.  This pattern is designed by the Shaffer Sisters, of whom I am a big fan.  You may have seen them on Project Run and Play or the beautiful creations they have made with some of my designs.  Their sewing always demonstrates their amazing skills and eye for detail, so I wasn't surprised by the high quality of their first pattern. 

Coming Soon
