Free Fabric Friday giveaways are still on through the weekend: $30 + $50 fabric gift certificates! Fat quarter packs! Patterns! Liberty! Go win! There’s also an open book giveaway for QuiltEssential

All this week we’re featuring Cloud9’s new organic voile! Six of our readers used prints from the new Palos Verdes collection to sew a pattern of their choice, and the results are beautiful. Search #palosverdesblouse on your favorite social media channel to see more of the fabric and challenge results!

Our Challengers:

Here are blouses from Teresa, Charise, Carolina and Nienke. Next up is Melissa Mora from Melly Sews!

Melissa modified one of her popular Blank Slate Patterns for her blouse, which she’s thinking of offering as a women’s pattern. If you just can’t wait, however, her Palos Verdes post at Melly Sews shows you how to alter one of her free patterns; use the High Low Shirt as a starting design to give you a similar look.

Melissa takes you step-by-step through the bow sleeves, making it easy to add these to your favorite pattern. Melissa has lots of free patterns and tutorials you won’t want to miss, plus you probably already know and love her super-popular Blank Slate Patterns.
