SEWING

This week I chat about some new fabrics and patterns that arrived in the mail!

I'm going to be making a Cercei-inspired (modern day) dress using McCall's M6959 (Trust me, it's not as crazy as it sounds!)

I'm also going to be making a shirt for Dennis using McCall’s M6044.

MAIL

Naomi of Sew.Knit.Create on Etsy send along two beautiful handmade stitch marker necklaces. Thank you so much!

Agata Mackiewicz generously sent along a copy of her new pattern, Brokilon Shawl
She is also offering one up as a giveaway for our 200th Episode! 


ASK AWAY 


I mention some patterns, similar to the Featherweight Cardigan by Hannah Fettig, but have a more closed front.
