Week in the Sewing Life No. 7

Well guys, not much sewing going on over here this week and I was bummed to ‘get behind’ and not have any posts to share, but sometimes that’s the way it goes! I’ve got a teething two year old that’s tired of being cooped up, one kid fighting off a virus, and a whole lot of worry for all my friends and family back in Texas. Whew. Luckily the sick kid is fine (really it’s more of the whole process now that you have to go through to prove he isn’t Covid sick more than just the little virus he was fighting!), my Texans’ power is returning (prayers that water is back soon and not too much damage left behind as it starts to thaw!), and the two year old… well he’s still teething and into absolutely everything, but that I can handle.

I did sew up a dragon plushie for Harper last weekend that she has promised to take photos of so I can share next week. And I finished another top in my winter module and have plans this afternoon to finish the second one. I finished my first knitting project and have started a second. I found it really soothing this week when I was too anxious to concentrate on sewing and now I am hooked! I want to knit allll the things!

Around the internet I found this great list of over 100 free sewing patterns. I also thought these miniature embroidery pieces were amazing!

This article about The People’s Sewing Army and how you can help with your sewing scraps was really inspiring! As was this make by Erica Bunker. I love Mara Hoffman’s work and Erica did an amazing job recreating it!

The only new pattern I have to share with you this week is the Zadie Blouse by Sew Over It. This looks to be a beautiful, very wearable blouse that could be dressed up or down depending on what fabric you choose. I love the dress length!

I hope you stay safe and warm this weekend and my plan is to be back next week with a lot of fun projects to share with you!
