It's skirt weather...

I enjoy wearing skirts in spring and summer. Today, fabric.com has stretch cotton sateen in beautiful spring/summer prints. Just perfect for skirts. The Joyce's Almost Bias Skirt pattern would be wonderful in this fabric.

As I'm looking, most of the skirts by Serendipity Studios would look good made up in this fabric, too.

Have fun looking at all the options.

Happy Stitching!

Totes, Bags, and Purses....

I have found some wonderful inspiration for bags. Check out the bags by Nancy Gonzalez. Not only that you can make similar looks yourself. Did you know that Fabric.com is having a special this weekend on their faux leather? Check out clutch patterns, tote patterns, and hobo bag patterns that I have in the eBay store. I'm considering a tulip bag in a faux leather. I've been seeing a lot of this style in the windows at the mall.

So many patterns and so little time. Have fun looking!

Happy Sewing!

Where does the time go?

Do you ever feel like you need a couple more hours in the day? That is how I've felt ever since returning from vacation. I did need manage to get all of the orders on Monday and have all questions answered by Tuesday. I still feel like I'm on the run. With any luck everything will be settled down by next week and I will be back in my normal routine.

I do have big news. The Pattern Loft will be getting it's own space at the first of May. I am very excited about this as it will give me the opportunity to have more family time and sewing time. I tend to work at every opportunity with everything located in my home.

If you haven't been to the eBay store lately, there are lots of changes there. I have moved some of the inventory into the multiple selections category. Hopefully, it will make it a little easier to find items. There will be more moving around in the next couple of weeks also.

There is a sale going on. It includes many patterns and some fabric.

Happy Stitching!
