New This Week: Getting Ready for Fall
The new Stitch Magazine is here! I am quite biased (because there are a few projects from my people in here), but I think it's a really good issue. There are some great gift ideas, including a garment bag/travel accessories project, some beautiful home dec pieces and even a wood hauling bag. The garments are great too-- with several geared towards the men and boys in your life.
Sew Serendipity by Kay Whitt is in and just in time for the *weather*. The book includes full patterns for a basic skirt, tunic/dress, and coat. It then details 6 variations on each pattern and steps to find your perfect fit. The patterns are each graded into 7 sizes from XXS to XXL and the focus of the book is building on basic skills to master clothes that look great on you! I think the real standouts here are some of the coat options-- and just in time, because we got in some lovely new wool that is would work perfect for fall and winter.
Flannel season is here-- well, almost here. Erin McMorris is just out with an entire line of Flannel and we have it. I have my money on the large scale houses as favourites, but maybe because I have a house full of boys? We also have in four new prints from Moda which I like for me and less for the boys, so they will probably win. Quilt backs, pajama bottoms, and robe patterns and calling my name.
