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!

The Vintage Train Case

The Sew Fab Winter Blog Tour with Sew Charleston and Handmade Martini.

Sew Fab Winter 2014 Bundle

Today I wanted to let you know about the blog tour that is happening along with the Sew Fab Winter Pattern Sale. Several amazing sewing bloggers have graciously agreed to review the new patterns that are included in the winter bundle for you! Since these are new, there really aren’t a whole lot of photos of them floating around in blogland for you to look at, and if you’re like me you like to see what other people have done with the patterns. I like to see what fabrics they’ve used and what modifications they have had to make, if any… don’t you? So today we are visiting Abbey at Sew Charleston and Michelle at Handmade Martini. Both of these women are very experienced at making clothing for themselves and will give you an honest take on the patterns. Abbey made the Margot Tunic and Michelle made herself an Extraordinary Girl Shirt. Here are a couple of pics of their finished garments. Click through the links above to read the rest of their reviews and buy the bundle here.

The Sew Fab Pattern Tour: Max California and Smashed Peas and Carrots.

The Sew Fab Pattern Tour has been so much fun so far, and today will not disappoint either! Today the tour heads to Max California and Smashed Peas and Carrots where Ari and Maggie are sharing what they have made from the Spring Bundle.

First up is Ari at Max California, one of the coolest sewing blogs out there! Ari has sewn up Figgy’s Seraphic Pants for her son. This is such a cool unisex pattern, totally on trend right now. What until you see how he rocks these! And while you’re over there, check out the Sew Geeky series, it’s amazing.

Maggie at Smashed Peas and Carrots is an in-the-flesh blogging friend of mine, which is so much fun! I love this lady, I really do. When we got together outside of Chicago last year (I was home visiting my dad), we totally hit it off, and I was wishing that we had a whole lot more time to hang out! She has a great blog (much cooler than mine), and today she’s sharing her version of Heidi & Finn’s Tennis Skort. It’s adorable. I love this pattern! I made it for Abby and shared it here.
