Bundle UP!

The Bundle UP! bundle from Pattern Revolution is live and a great deal! 7 of the patterns are
brand new just released a few minutes ago & exclusive to BU the first week. You can pick your bundle size (6-11) as well as which of the 11 patterns you want to include. Bundle prices start at $4.50 each and go down in price the more you buy. (50-60% off total)
There is a nice free downloadable surprise with any bundle purchase!

I had the great fun of getting my hands on the California Dress early for review - this is a great knit dress with a ton of variety. There is no front/back, so you can wear it either way. It has a peplum length, knee length, and maxi length (with high low option).

My daughter LOVES it - so so cute!  And since it takes no tie to sew, I'll be making more of these for sure!!!

Catching Up April: Cause I have gotten way behind!

I swear I have not gone into sewing intervention re-hab..... rather, I have been sewing up a storm!  Sewing so much that I didn't have time to share here!

I bit the Self Care Sewing Bug back in February, and that led Becca Duval and I to say - 'hey, what if we teamed up and applied to audition in this new sewing competition called Challenge Create!'  And so we did - and we got in.  And we have been sewing up a storm over at Skirt Fixation's Challenge Create: Adult Edition!

Week One : Nature Inspired

Week Two: Refashion/Upcycle

Week Three: Hint of Vintage

Week Four: Stash Busting

I also participated in Alida Makes' Calling All Kids Series with my 'Butterflies are for Boys' Button up - this was also A's Easter shirt... pretty perfect if you think about it.

I made baby girl some adorable clothes, namely the Peek A Boo Adelaide Romper and Double Ruffle Dress by Millie Rose and the Sydney Pinafore by Mouse House Creations (free pattern - love it!!).  And then she turned 2 on Easter Sunday.

I also worked on a top secret project - but you will just have to wait to see that ;o)

So what have you been up to in April?!?!?!?
