The Sew Fab Winter Sale is Ending Soon!

Sew Fab Winter 2014 Bundle

I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing some of the beautiful garments that have been sewn from the brand new patterns in the Sew Fab Winter Pattern Bundle, I know that I have! In fact, I’ve been so busy posting and tweeting and pinning all of the posts and photos that I have not had the time to sit down at my machine and sew any of them myself, which has really bummed me out! I can’t wait for things to settle down here at The Southern Institute so that I can get to work.

Today is your last chance to buy these 10 new patterns at the amazing price of $29.95! We still have plenty available (wink-wink). In the future the patterns will be available individually, although release dates have not been announced yet, BUT this is your only chance to get them at 70% off of their retail price!

Take a look at the Jersey Glam, the Extraordinary Glam, and the Omega Angel Jacket. These women have done such an amazing job with the patterns… you will love this bundle! Take a look at all of the pattern descriptions here, then link through to purchase the bundle before it becomes unavailable at midnight tonight!

The Capitol Hill by Straight Stitch Designs.

There is just so much goodness to be had in the Sew Fab Winter Bundle! Have you seen the tester pictures and the posts that are popping up all over the place? Women are loving this bundle! Today Darcie and Annika shared their versions of the Capitol Hill from Straight Stitch Designs. They are both very different choices in fabric, and I love seeing how they both work so well with the pattern!



See more about the Capitol Hill on the Size Chart page and buy the bundle while you’re there!

The Vintage Train Case

Happenings at The Southern Institute.

It has been BUSY over here at The Southern Institute! Phew, I can hardly keep up with everything. With the Sew Fab Sale, the Christmas shopping, holiday events at school and home, and other miscellaneous commitments I can hardly keep my head on straight these days! I thought I would pop in and let you know what has been happening…


I’m at the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital blog talking about how we can either encourage or discourage our children when they dream big dreams. I’d love to have you click on over and read my short piece, and I’d love to hear your thoughts there in the comments. Are your kids big dreamers? Do you remember what it’s like to dream?

There were a few stops on the Sew Fab Pattern Tour today! Did you see any of them? Tasha at Friend’s Stitched Together reviewed the Jersey Glam Dress. I think she did a beautiful job! This is such a versatile dress and will come in larger sizes soon (those who buy the bundle will get the free update).

The Jersey Glam Dress

Teri at Fa Sew La, made an Extraordinary Girl Top and actually modified it to fit over her pregnant belly! Isn’t it great? She did a wonderful job showing the way this pattern can be used. I just love it on her!

Extraordinary Girl Shirt Pattern for women Maternity version

Kelley at Casa Crafty did a bang up job with the Capitol Hill pattern! I love the fabric that she chose. Not only did she get a great top, but also the cutest family Christmas photo ever! Go on over and take a look…


Remember, the Sew Fab Winter Pattern Bundle is only available through December 15th, then you will not be able to get all ten patterns together for only $29.95! Grab yours today! You can find it here.
