Featured Creativity

on January 29 | in Sewing Inspiration | by | with 43 Comments

We’re nearing February with lots of fresh, creative energy from the looks of our Sew,Mama,Sew! photo pool. Here are just a few of the many, many things catching our eyes lately:


Hedgehog by Eva, Apple & Eve

Eva adds beautiful, intricate embroidery to her hedgehogs, birds, cats, bunnies and more. This little hedgehog’s berries are padded for an extra, tactile treat. Find more of Eva’s work on her Apple & Eve blog and in her Etsy shop (look at these beautiful little hearts!).


Pouch by Libby, Crunchy Peas

Libby shares how she made this baby carrier for her daughter Laurel in less than an hour. Learn more about the pattern and Libby’s thoughts on baby wearing on her Crunchy Peas blog.


Dress by Ingrid, lottielulu

Ingrid made this dress for her daughter for Christmas with vintage polished cotton and a vintage simplicity pattern (#8566). She wrote about the process on her lottielulu blog here and here. She writes that it’s definitely “made for dancing…”!

Add your own photos to the Sew, Mama, Sew! general photo pool!
