This has become a bit of a catch-cry in our household since our eldest moved away to uni to study architecture. He up and left his baby brother behind- who now accuses us of favoring his brother over him ( which we don't!). And of course, we have our two girls here too. So it's pretty much crazy most of the time.
But of an evening we gather to watch Raymond and Robert, Marie, Debra and Frank. Did you see that birthday cake Marie made for Raymond- then gifted it to Robert- then back to Raymond? We did, and we needed a cake just like that one... for our own Raymond and Robert....
Yep, we have resurrected our beloved Sew UP Wednesday at Crafty Mamas!
On Sew UP Wednesday, we commit to creating SOMETHING. Take back a little time for ourselves and just enjoy the process of making. Spend an hour, a day or how ever long you can...come join us! We gather in the forum at Crafty Mamas or on Facebook to show-off our cleverness and chin wag.
Farbenmix AMELIE has been a fave of the Crafty Mamas pretty much since it's arrival in store. Amelie is in German, with an English step by step HERE.
It's a really cute tunic pattern, that you can use as a top or as a short dress ( if cut longer). Either with the hood or without, AMELIE sews up quickly and is a beautiful blank canvas for you to embellish as you will. Check these out..
Lila Lotta has 3 beautiful Amelies to see, visit her blog HERE.
ps: that incredible Star jersey knit by Farbenmix will be in the CM shop tomorrow!
I had my eldest son venture to IKEA a while back to get me some of that adorable fabric with the fox on it- you know the one? Anyway- he managed to get me 2 metres. But when it arrived here- it was a lot thicker than I had thought it would be. So it sat in the stash for a while...til last night when Miss L declared her library bag too small. Yes! A proper excuse to cut into the IKEA fabric!
Farbenmix QUIARA is one of our very fave patterns. It fits Miss L to a "tee'" and is easily varied to a hoodie, t shirt, warm tunic or even a nighty. QUIARA has this graceful bell shape to it, which is great for giving tummies a bit of breathing room.
