Guys. I worry. I worry that maybe I play things wayyyyy too safe. Seriously.
Case in point: the lovely Allie very sweetly asked me to be part of the latest Indiesew blog tour. I could highlight any of the 5 fab sewing patterns included in the Winter Collection.I can tell you it was pretty hard to decide – there’s some pretty great patterns in that bundle.
In the end I went for two simple silhouettes – the Union St tee by Hey June and the leather accent clutch by LBG Studios.
What can I say – maybe it’s super boring, but I totally dig these designs.
One major win is that both are super quick to whip up – it only took me a couple of hours to make both. You gotta believe speed is of the essence with a wee babe around.
The instructions for both were totally straight forward – another win in my sleep deprived state.
I am in love with this bag. So simple, but such a winner.The outside fabric was gifted to me by a lovely friend and the faux suede patches are from a thrifted coat. I lined the inside with this fabric in pink.It kills me every time I open it. Business on the outside, party on the inside.
And here’s a bit better view of the Union St tee without the jacket (with me trying to look all moody… and failing).I live in slouchy tees at the moment, so I cut a straight L without any modifications to the pattern – I love when I can use the pattern straight ‘out of the box’.
I didn’t take too many detailed photos, but trust me when I say there’s some serious stripe marching going on (which I’m sadly super proud of).
So I’m super pleased with my choices, but maybe you think I played it too safe? Do you think simple is best, or do you prefer things that have a little more flair?
