Test Pattern for Hvar Jacket for Itch to Stitch

Hello Everyone,

I completed testing a pattern for Kennis at Itch to Stitch. The pattern is an adorable chic jacket called the "Hvar Jacket". You can purchase the pattern in her shop. I chose this plum color and thought it would be perfect for the fall weather. I love how you can dress it up or make it casual and chic with a pair of jeans or khakis.

Test Pattern Beausoleil Top for Itch To Stich

Hello Everyone,


I completed testing a pattern for Kennis at Itch to Stitch. The pattern is an adorable top called the "Beausoleil Top". You can purchase the pattern in her shop on Wednesday, June 7, 2017.

This pattern has a dress and top option. It has the on-trend "cold shoulder" short kimono sleeves with cuffs, a comfortable scoop neckline, center back lapped zipper, relaxed fit above the waist, easy-to-wear A-line skirt, patch pocket with the dress option, bra strap holder and a layers feature (print only the sizes you need).

I got this cute pink polka dot cotton fabric and notions at Joann. This top is so comfortable and can be worn with shorts, skirt, capris, khaki's or denim. I can't wait to make more and the dress!!

The pattern instructions/illustrations were very detailed and easy to understand. Also, Kennis gives you links to tutorials on how to do a lapped zipper, grade seams, and a bra strap holder.

Crimson Tide Thank You Gift Package

Hello Everyone,
I wanted to make a special "thank you" gift package for E's boss. She was a very good boss to E while he worked with her and especially since he was "out-processing" for his retirement from the Military.
I was told by E that she was a very big University of Alabama (Crimson Tide) Football fan. E showed her my blog and the different types of bags that I have sewn over the years. She loved the Lapin Noir bag by Sara @ Sew Sweetness.  I added an extra zipper pocket on the backside of the bag for more storage.

If you want to see the other bags that I made out of this pattern, you can view them here and here.

I also decided to make a travel neck pillow for her busy travel schedule and a journal (fabric and journal I found on Joann's website).


Have a wonderful day!!
