I’ve quite quiet a bit to share with you in this post!
First up, you might have already seen on Kat’s blog: The Burda Sew Along has been extended until June 9th. Then Kat will do a final round up of all your fabulous projects. You asked for it and we listened…and we kind of needed some more time too ;)
Kat and I have enjoyed this sew along so much that we have decided to do another, right away. We think it’s time we showed the Independent Pattern’s some love too so we are declaring that June is Indie Pattern Month. Want to play along? Oh yes you do!
Here’s the button and later this week we will have up the rest of the details (sign-up page, photo sharing site etc…) but that shouldn’t stop you from starting your planning.
Do you have some indie patterns already in your stash? Maybe you’ve been swooning over a few but haven’t quite gotten the credit card out yet? Why don’t you show us your collection (or wish-list), let’s get inspired!
Here is my collection:
I also have a Cake Cabarita on its way from Australia. Also missing from above is my Colette Lady Grey because:
That is what I will make this month. It has been cut out since two Winters ago, lining, interfacing and all. The main fabric is a black chunky weave wool I bought from The Fabric Store in Melbourne over 2 years ago (!) specifically for this project. The cotton sateen lining was bought later from Spotlight here in NZ when I finally decided to start it.
I am also dying to make Deer & Doe’s Belladonne, Papercut’s Watson Jacket and Ooh La Leggings. Check out this AMAZING tutorial on her website. Since I am already ahead with the Lady Grey I might get one of these started. The others will not happen as officially part of this sew along but they will happen because I am super excited about them.
Now, on to the Pattern Pyramid and Burda winners. I enlisted Harri’s help, she was quite enthusiastic and it took a few takes before I got her to not knock ALL the entries on the ground!
My camera is a bit basic in quality so you can’t really read who won in the video so here are Harri’s winners:
Thanks for playing, now go flick through your pattern stash and find a pretty Indie to make up this month…
