patterns, sew-alongs and scraps, oh my!
In this case, a picture is actually worth a thousand words! And possibly a thousand little pieces of scrap paper strewn all over my sewing room as well :)
This week, Laura, a self proclaimed "pudding person" and the creative mind behind Craftstorming, is hosting a sew along for her size 2T Small Fry skinny jeans. Even though Mae isn't quite a true size 2T yet, I'm going to sew along and hope she grows into them sometime during out seemingly endless winter!
Even more exciting for me, I'm drafting my first sized pattern to share here on the blog. And just like the other patterns I've shared so far, this one will be FREE! Hopefully, more on that (and maybe even a pattern if all goes well!) by the end of the week.
So I may be a little scarce this week, but don't worry. It only means many more scraps of paper are joining the "to be cleaned later" pile as I attempt to scale a pattern for multiple sizes. Hopefully the sew along gives me a few sewing breaks and helps keep me sane :)
Have a great week!
p.s. I am registering my oldest for high school this week and he turns 15 next Tuesday! It feels like he just graduated from kindergarten a few months ago :( He also starts Driver's Ed soon, so for anyone in Michigan, you might want to stay off the roads for a while :)
