Hurdles Quilt Pattern by Annela Hooey

Aneela Hoey's new line for Cloud 9 Organic Fabrics features 8 prints on quilting cotton and is "inspired by lazy day picnics, sun drenched flowers and everything good, simple and true." As Robert Frost writes, "nature's first green his gold, her hardest hue to hold." A similarly wistful Aneela Hooey longs for life to Stay Gold. We have yardage and Fat Quarter Bundles.

Meadowlark Sewing Inspiration with Teal and Finch

copyright Jen Dwyer-0604

Our design team is just in awe of these beautiful dresses sewn up by Jennifer of Teal and Finch fame. The vintage feel of the Ileana Dress Pattern by Compagnie M echos the classic storybook feel of our Meadowlark fabrics. A Flappy Coin Purse completes the sweet look for these fashionable sisters.

Pattern Hack: A Curvy Bruyere Shirt (Hacked via Lenox Dress)

When it was released a few years ago, the Deer & Doe Bruyere shirt pattern felt like a breath of fresh air. At the time, the relaxed-fit Grainline Archer was everywhere, and the Bruyere offered some unique details for a button-down shirt: a fitted bodice, a waistband, and general fit-and-flare shape. I instantly fell in…

· Sewing Pattern Buddy app ·

Happy Monday, everyone! 🙂  I was approached by Megan of Kwirky Kiwi about trying out her app for organizing sewing patterns and I loved it so much that I wanted to share this with all of you!
I don’t know about you, but I tend to amass patterns in batches and I’m quickly reaching the stage where I can’t remember every detail of every pattern I own…. I’m happy to report that the Sewing Pattern Buddy app is the end to my woes!  Megan has designed the app with so many opportunities to organize and categorize patterns according to your personal favorite method and I’ve been so impressed by how intuitive and easy it is to navigate. 🙂  This app is free for up to 25 patterns and is just $6.99 NZD (approx $4.99 USD) for unlimited storage!
Despite being a Millenial, I’m very decidedly *not* tech savvy, but I’m here to tell you- if you already have a smart phone, you’re tech-y enough to figure out how to utilize this resource too. 😉
The app has a wide range of customization already built in with different filters for Pattern Company/Number, Garment Type, Era/Year,  Personal Rating scale, Tags, Previous Makes, Pattern Completeness, and Pattern Type.  There is also space on each pattern listing for measurements, fabric requirements, personal notes, skill level, place/time acquired, purchase cost, printed/unprinted, condition, relevant website URL, location in your stash, and number of copies!
The categories come empty, all the better for using your own organization method.  I really love that I’m able to add specific design elements to the “tag” section.  Frequently I’ll be looking for a pattern that incorporates princess seams/long sleeves/collar/etc and having an easy filter to find them is so helpful!
After backing up the photos and info, the app is fully navigable without internet or data- which is huge for me since I’m on a no-data plan!  The images are clear and zoom-able, so if I need to see details from the envelope back I still have access to that information. The app takes up less space on my phone than any other app I’ve downloaded- I really haven’t found a negative to this app. 😉
This app really is all could ask for as a pattern database and I’m excited to keep adding to the database!  This probably settles me firmly in “nerd” category, but I’m not ashamed.  I love organization so much that the thought of spending this evening adding more patterns to my personal catalog adds a little spring to my step today, haha! 😉
· Disclaimer- I did receive the expanded app as a gift from Megan without the requirement for posting, and all opinions are my own! ·

McCalls 7125

About a year ago I attended Melbourne’s first restash event.  It’s a get-together where you take fabric, patterns, and any other sewing supplies that you no longer require, put them onto long tables, then take home things that other people have brought along!  I think that I came home with less than I took (which… Continue reading McCalls 7125
