Aren’t you impressed with the quality of work (and inspiration) on the Sew, Mama, Sew Flickr group? It’s (quite frankly) getting difficult to keep up with it all! We have a few fun projects to highlight this week, all so accessible, fun and beautiful:
Patchwork Belt by Keri, Yellow Owl
Keri started this belt with a tutorial from Creative Little Daisy but wanted it reversible. She writes, “I changed it up a little… One side has patterned fabric, the other solid fabric.” Keri shares all of the things she changes up a little on her blog, Yellow Owl, and sells items in her Etsy shop too (belts and more!). Don’t forget to visit her Flickr site as well.
Aprons by Barbara and her friends, Fuzzy Mitten
Barbara and her friends modified a pattern from MaryJanesFarm for these smart aprons. They all wanted different pockets and felt a double-sided apron is “both easier and more practical.” For an excellent selection of apron designs (if we do say so ourselves!), check out these patterns. Barbara taught herself to knit four years ago and now writes patterns for many of the toys she creates. Visit her site, Fuzzy Mitten, for a gateway to her blog, shop and toys. Barbara’s Flickr site gives you more glimpses into her crafty world.
Pincushion by Eva
Eva lives in San Sebastian (in northern Spain). She works as a librarian and as a mama of two, and she bought her first sewing machine a year ago. Eva’s loves learning to sew and is a big fan of free tutorials on all of the “wonderful craft blogs” she enjoys. We love her log cabin patchwork design and think it would be an excellent use of the gazillion little scraps of fabric we tuck away after projects! Eva has a beautiful selection of her sewing on her Flickr site (look at this great pear pincushion and some Wee Wonderfuls pattern favorites!).
