Good morning everyone! I’ve been looking forward to Sew Saturday Snippets #2! If you missed Sew Saturday Snippets #1, this is a new series here where I’m highlighting cool makes, sewing community challenges, and sewing videos. If you’re interested in being featured on an upcoming edition of Sew Saturday Snippets, email me at email@example.com. Grab a cup of tea and let’s be inspired together!
Sew Saturday Snippets #2
Laquana made this kickin cold shoulder dress. It is equal parts fierce and so beautifully fit. No wonder she had people requesting orders immediately after she donned it this day!
Pauline made the coolest pattern hack of a Fendi sweater dress. If you’re familiar at all with Pauline’s work, you know that she is the queen of pattern hacking, and this one is an impressive one. Not only is the lacing really cool, but the black is a great contrast against the red.
Let the party begin!!!! Another hacking success of a Fendi sweater turned into a dress using the @deer_and_doe_patterns #ddgivre. No less than 72 buttonholes!😥! Love, love, love this little red number!!! This is my participation dress for the #littlereddressproject #thelittlereddressproject hosted by @runningnstyle @rosabella.angelica
Lindsey made a wowser of a coat in this Sculptural Bucket Coat from Stitchless TV. This fabric is such a spectacular print and the oversized scale of this pattern shows it off well! There’s some more pics on her Facebook.
Meg made her Mom the prettiest Hey June Tallinn sweater from this bright pink quilted knit. How cute is her Mom?
Contests/Sewing Community Challenges
2017MakeNine is finishing up. If you’ve participated, how have you done with this challenge? You still have until December 31st to finish up this self-paced challenge from Lucky Lucille.
Patternreview’s Pajama Contest is going on until December 15th.
Linda of Nice Dress Thanks I Made It is hosting the Designin’ December. For this one, you knock off a RTW garment. Last year, it was a fun challenge to follow, and I’m curious to see what people come up with. If I didn’t have so many irons in the fire right now, I’d hop on this fabulous train!
This week on SewTube
My Handmade Holidays series continues where I’m showcasing quick and simple sewing projects for anyone and everyone on your gift list. This week we made zipper can organizers, faux fur beanies, and I showed you how to quick line a tote bag. My undying love for fabric yoyos shows up in this easy DIY Christmas garland.
Gabberdashery Vlogmas day 7, It’s Snowing Faux Fur: Between discussions of pink unicorns and eyebrow trimmers, there’s a lot of fun here.
The Tailor and the Dressmaker talk about the virtues of a steam press in your sewing room.
Stitchy Bee made some adorable loungewear sets from floral velour and star print sweatshirt jersey that has me singing the songs from The Pajama Game! I didn’t know it, but I guess she has a shop too where you can get the fabric that she features on her videos.
What are you stitching up this week?
