New Goodies Galore!

It has been a very exciting week at Stitchology as Mr. FedEx Man and Mr. UPS Guy have been by every day to drop off boxes bursting with beautiful new summer fabrics and patterns!

First, they delivered the new Spring and Summer Colette patterns, which I was anxious to get my hands on as I absolutely adore each and every Colette pattern ever made.
Then they delivered bolts and bolts of charming fabrics perfect for hot summer days.

All the new goodies have left me daydreaming about my summer wardrobe. More specifically I have been daydreaming about what I want to make to vamp up my summer wardrobe, and after this week I have lots of promising possibilities.

Take for example this fabric.

It is a cotton Jacquard with a scrumptious sheen and texture, and will make up beautifully into the new Iris short pattern.
White is the new black after all.

 I’m absolutely enamored with this cotton with just enough lycra to achieve a great fit.

 It would look darling as the Lily dress,

 or if your feeling really brave as the Clover pants.

It would also be stunning as a pencil skirt, a-line skirt or summer jacket.

I could show you more, but I don't want to spoil all the surprises waiting for you at Stitchology.
So come on by, say hello, and pick up a few goodies and launch your summer sewing!

Happy Sewing!

Leonardo the Lion

Meet Leonardo the Lion.

He might actually be the cutest thing I have ever made in the history of my sewing life.

Look at that fringy felt mane.
It makes him look tough.
And all the lady lions can't resist how it flops in the wind as he runs at full speed.

They like his little fringy tail tuff too.
Don't ask me why, I'm not a lady lion.

If you have a young en who wants to make her own stuffed lion send her to Stitchology and sign her up for the class on Thursday April 26th from 4-6 PM. Kids aged 6-10 are welcome and no sewing experience is necessary!

Happy Sewing
