My favorite UPS guy just dropped off our shipment of Hillary Lang’s Wee Wonderfuls. Here is a sneak peek at some of the dolls that immediately caught my eye…
Also, by popular demand we have made new Anna Maria Horner voile scarf kits. I don’t know about you but I could certainly use a few of these!
We added some August dates to our most popular sewing classes & a new class as well that we are truly excited about! Inspired by popular clothing trends of the season, Susan has made herself several wide band elastic skirts with adorable contrasting colored pockets & for one day only she will be teaching a class on how to make your very own! Sign up quick as it is sure to fill up fast!
After reading this months issue of ReadyMade I was completely inspired to revisit last summers teepee idea! Made with 4 yards of Mod Green Pod’s Atticus in Basil, 5 bamboo poles & a few feet of rope, this teepee was super easy to make & although I didn’t catch a photo of my little guy in it for you, the teepee was a hit! The best part is the set up & take down–completely portable & easily stashed away in a corner of our home while not in use! Perfect! I used this pattern from NearSea Naturals but there are a lot of options out there…including this free pattern for a fabric pup tent that Annie is making for her daughter–very cool!
Susan couldn’t wait to make something out of our new Nani Iro Fuccra fabric. After a quick browse in our inspiring book section she choose to make the Gauze Top from Wendy Mullin’s Sew U book. The pattern is a classic button down top that is loose fitting & flattering & paired with your favorite cuffed jeans & Swedish clogs makes a stylish outfit for on the go moms! Susan wasn’t here to torture so the lovely Sarah modeled the shirt for us–thanks Sarah!
