Happy Friday everyone! I hope your summer is going well. I know for me it was really important to take the first part of summer and soak up as much of it as I could with my girls. We had a great time, and now I’m finally getting the itch to sew more and share, too. But it’s surely not over yet, there are adventures to be had!
Backing up a bit, at the end of spring I was honored to be included in a new magazine called Making. If you haven’t heard of it yet, please go check it out. The amazingly talented Carrie Hoge of Madder put together a bunch of amazing knitters, sewists, and crafters and assembled this gorgeous mag. It’s only available in print, and I think Carrie really made all the projects shine as every page is filled with so much inspiration and light. I designed a set of zippered pouches that were way too fun to make, Petal Pouches.
They’re a cute set of two small curvy zippered pouches that I can totally see as being fun to make and fun to customize however you’d like by using patchwork or appliqué or whatever your heart desires. They’d be a fun little project to make for swaps or to tuck in a gift card or other small treasures and give as a gift. Of course do please make one for yourself! I’m thinking I need at least one to corral lip gloss, some tissues, and floss for in my everyday bag. The small size is like a small dumpling you can hold in the palm of your hand – so cute.
I hope you’ll be able to pick up a copy at your local quilt or knitting shop, from Carrie herself, or there’s a limited amount of copies I have in my shop as well. Oh, and Making will be a bi-annual magazine and I’d recommend keeping a lookout for a fall issue coming right up.
