Blatant Self Promotion Friday
Lest you think I’m sitting here idly, here are two of my recently published sewing projects. I actually made these back in January (I think) when I was just dreaming of summer. Unfortunately I am still dreaming because it has been rainy all week– so much so that all of the bread is molding. Whine.
Both of the projects can be found in Sew Simple magazine. If you haven’t checked this mag out, I recommend it–their first issue (which my mom gave me) had a really great story on sewing from patterns, and finally I understood. As the name implies, the projects are simple– but you can always add more to them if you want something more involved.
Here’s a cute Smock top for summer. You don’t even need to know how to sew a buttonhole to finish this (I went with a trusty loop instead). It’d be cute layered, and of course you can lengthen and shorten it, or add embellishments.
And here’s a really easy big summer bag. I love that big floral fabric– I picked it out from ReproDepot (who graciously donated the supplies for these projects). This one is quick and simple to make– the pattern is on their site but you’ll have to buy the mag if you want instructions.
If you end up making either of these, I’d love to see the finished project! E-mail or comment and let me know.
