Have you linked up any new things you’ve tried this month with Fiona?
My most exciting ‘New to Me’ in May was having my Caravan Pattern featured on the News page of the June Edition of Cross Stitcher Magazine. I was amazed when Katie Allen sent me an etsy convo asking to include it and, although I’ve got used to seeing my sewing on a computer screen, it was very exciting to find it in a ‘real’ magazine in a shop in our nearest town!
I’ve also tried making several new things with mixed results.
I made a cushion, blogged here, from this book by the very talented Cécile Balladino.
And some crochet bunting (something I’ve been meaning to do forever!) inspired by the same book.
And I appliquéd some mice using Wash Away appliqué sheets. I’ve never tried these before sheets and I loved them.
And I saw a sweet tea pot pincushion on pinterest from Join the Mood with a tute and an excellent tutorial by Manuela and I made one straight away – that’s definitely a first for me!
And, finally I made a dress using the Merchant & Mills (paper) Dress Shirt pattern. It has bib front panel, which is not something I’ve tried before, and I also used Blades Linen from Calico Laine.
I’m not sure I’ll use this pattern again but I certainly see more linen in my future…
