With some sewing deadlines behind me, it’s time to think about doing some sewing just for me – alright, maybe just for the kids. Over the weekend, I purchased two (downloadable) sewing patterns. The first is The Scientific Seamstress’ Bowling Shirt. I am envisioning doing this one up in solids and creating a cute, retro bowling team design for the back. The second pattern is a military style cap made from a bandana. I LOVE hats and while I’m not sure if I’m crazy for the overall design (I think the cap portion might be too high), I love the finished look in camouflage…. and Easton may even wear it.
Of course, tomorrow is September which means……. the start of Amy Butler’s Style Stitches Sew Along! I’ll be posting a full review of the book tomorrow and in the mean time, finishing up collecting the notions needed to make my bag (FYI for those of you needing interfacing, Joann’s will be having theirs 50% off this weekend!).
