Day 2 means more bloggers and more giveaways!

Yup. BUT before we get to that, I have a back-to-school clothing checklist to share with you. I’m no graphic designer so it’s not super pretty with lots of colour and glitter.. (well, no digital glitter, you could always glue some glitter to it after printing it out). It’s basic black and white with enough space to check off the amount of pretty much anything you might need for a Fall and Winter clothing closet and some space to write in sewing pattern ideas.

I originally created this two years ago, before I even had a school-aged kid, ha but never actually shared it. I’ve revamped it a bit and added place to write down you child’s measurements.

You can download it here

One Thimble Issue 12 tour

One Thimble Tour Issue 12: Flutterby Kite, Darling Daisy bag and more

Flutterby Kite and Issue 12 of One Thimble review by Lulu & Celeste
I seem to have an addiction to sewing blog tours… But they’re so fun!
Today is my stop on the One Thimble Issue 12 blog tour! I’ve done quite a few of the One Thimble tours already so I’m happy to be back for another one.
I like sewing up the ‘different’ patterns they offer; it’s a nice change from always sewing clothing. This time I chose the Flutterby Kite and the Darling Daisy bag, both patterns from Molly and Mama.
(Molly and Mama has some super cute tutorials and patterns on her website btw, you should really go check them out!)
Anyway, back to today’s tour.

Stylish Sewing with Stylish Fabrics: Julia cardigan

Sew Ready for Fall Tour: Julia cardigan with Stylish Fabrics

I had a huge long list of sewing I wanted to do for the summer before the summer started. Didn’t happen, so a few weeks back I decided to just skip summer sewing and head straight into fall sewing, so I was super happy to take part in this tour being hosted by Sewing by Ti for Stylish Fabric and sew up a much needed cardigan for the fall.
