An eye-catcher is a person or thing that attracts the attention
The online sewing community is very visual. So, every day I see heaps of sewing related images on social media and blogs. Some of them catch my eye because they make me think or they give me inspiration. Here, I want to share these eye-catchers with you.
Follow below what caught my eye the last 10 days:
I said it before: the online sewing community is such an inspiring community. The day Spring peeked around the corner—and the MIYMarch2017 challenge was still in full swing—three amazing sewists launched another challenge: “Sew-together-a-shirtdress”. I wasn’t planning on sewing another shirtdress—in fact, I have one that is currently a WIP—but this challenge motivates me to sew one! Maybe it will be…
The Carolyn Pajamas dress by Jenny
Wow, I am so in love with the Carolyn Pajamas from Closet Case Patterns but I would never have thought to make a dress from it. This is such a clever idea from Jenny and she explains on her blog how she did it. Now I have to sew one.
The Cascade Duffle coat made by @katilulemakes
The Cascade Duffle coat from Grainline Studio has been in my sewing queue for a long time—like so many other patterns. But when I saw this version of @katilulemakes it really itched to start with one immediately. Isn’t this great? She made it with scraps and left-overs from wool fabric.
The Heron Top made by Sal
For two years making something from the Merchant and Mills workbook has been on my #MakeNine. When I saw this powerful Heron Top from Sal I thought: “Wis, what are you waiting for?”.
The Makebra DL01 made by Teresa
Making my own bra has also been on my wish list for a long time. Look at this amazing bra made by Teresa. I like that it is a foam bra made with green satin and beautiful top stitching. I really should get started on this now!
