the Flying Fox roundup! Part two.

Day 2 of the Flying Fox round up and we have some super cute versions to share with you today!  Dusty's beautiful version with contrasting pockets (and that bonnet!!) is divine.  Gabrielle's retro bodice mixed with amber corduroy is funky and fun!  Feyza often sews for both of her little ones creating the coolest sibling outfits. Plus how great is that brother and sister bond? Gorgeous!  \  Amanda's uber girly Fox is so sweet on her little lady. Wendy's version shows the Fox can be great for country life and still incredibly adorable at the same time.  . . . . That's...

Today we're going to show you some of the beautiful Flying Foxes that people are sewing up. This pattern is one of my personal favorites in the collection. It's quick and fun to stitch up, can be styled in so many ways and - as you will see over the next couple of days - suits so many styles.  Brooke sewed up a beautiful version in baby pink and gold and paired it with a flutter sleeve top (which you could create as well with a mash up of the Jumping Jack top and the Merry Go Round sleeve). Jeannine's black and white polka...

the Rosie round up! Part three.

On our final day of the Rosie round up we have a gorgeous variety to share of the Ring Around the Rosie pattern ... Jessica added a lace panel to her Rosie to give it a whole new look with an added bit of fun! Rebecca's Rosie was simple perfection made with lightweight denim with a  sweet butterfly print and large wooden buttons. Rebecca's daughter has the best handmade wardrobe - you can see more of her beautiful work here. Ashleigh's wee fella is so adorable barefoot in his Rosie. She has an amazing vintage inspired handmade shop - so if you...

the Rosie round up! Part two.

On our last post we ran you through a handful of the different ways people were sewing up the Ring Around the Rosie pattern. Today we have some more varieties to share with you ...  Deirdre showed us that the middle panel on the Rosie is perfect for a bit of appliqué! Her gorgeous flower mixed with the bright red and white stripes has created an outfit that I'm sure will be adored and passed down for generations to come! You can see more of her beautiful work on her instagram page.  Brooke used a soft and feminine fabric that looks amazing with...
