Pattern Tour!

Filed under: Pattern,Sewing - 14 Apr 2014

Did you know there’s a Sew Like My Mom pattern tour going on today? Don’t worry, I didn’t either!!

I woke up this morning to see my amazing friend Andrea from Andrea’s Notebook had posted about my Darling Daisy dress. My brain’s foggy little sleep-deprived wheels started turning because I couldn’t remember giving her the pattern. I scrolled through her post on my phone, giggling over the gorgeous pictures and when I got to the bottom I went back to the top and started reading. Imaging my shock when I saw a bunch of my bloggy friends had organized a surprise pattern tour of MY patterns! AND I HAD NO IDEA! I clicked through each link, drinking in the thoughtful words, perfect photos and dreamy reviews in pure astonishment. This is surreal, guys, and completely astounding! So I have to share their work and love with you all.

I’ll start where I started–Andrea’s precious bright pink polka dot version of the Darling Daisy.

I LOVE Marissa’s raccoon Kudzu Coveralls. And isn’t tiny baby Teddy the cutest (you’ll have to click through to see him)?!

Susan at Living With Punks made a gorgeous version of my Busy Lizzy. I BIG heart her choice of bold fabric, and in the background of her pictures is my bowling set!

Christie at A Lemon Squeezy Home put a spin on my Darling Daisy and created this precious bias tape version for her daughter.

Jess at If Only They Would Nap is my sewing soul sister. Her littlest guy is just barely younger than Ollie and is also a tiny peanut. He’s also completely precious in turtle Kudzu’s!

Melissa at Melly Sews made a fab blue version of my indoor bowling set for her guys. This was my first pattern and is what made me set out on this whole adventure of pattern designing.

Stacey from Boy, Oh Boy, Oh Boy made these fantastic seersucker Kudzus for her son. Isn’t it perfect for Easter?!

Jess at Craftiness is not Optional made the most adorable plaid Busy Lizzy cut on the bias. Couldn’t you just eat up her Charlotte??

And lastly, Veronica at SewVery shared her original Darling Daisy review that she made in the shirt length. She’s working on a new version and will be sharing it, as well as my new shorts pattern, later this week!

Did you catch that last part? A new pattern! That’s right–tonight I’m sending out my newest pattern to my testers. Look for many posts about it coming next week! This is another gender neutral pattern with adorable options and, as always, a modest fit.

This surprise pattern tour has been amazing and just another wonderful gift in a long line of heartwarming things this group of ladies has done for me lately. They’re truly beautiful friends and incredibly talented women! Their generosity is so overwhelming and I want to give back in some way. So this week I’m donating 50% of all proceeds from pattern sales to The Young and Brave Foundation in honor of JLK, a beautiful little girl, the Preschool friend of CINO’s Sadie, who bravely fought a battle against an inoperable brain tumor and ultimately lost her life to cancer at the young age of 6.


If you’ve been thinking about getting one of my patterns, now is the time! Help me support the memory of a beautiful little girl and a truly worthy cause!

Sew Like My Mom | Parisian Top

Pattern Anthology is a collaborative pattern company that is the brainchild of 4 amazing designers I’m privileged to call my blog friends. Today they released their first women’s collection, called Just Add Jeans!! I was lucky enough to test the Parisian Top by Go To Patterns.

I very deeply love Go To Patterns for women! They fit me and my large bust like a dream with little or no alterations. Andrea definitely designs with a woman in mind and this top is another Grand Slam.

The Peter Pan collar is my favorite detail. It can be made out of a woven fabric, allowing for truly endless possibilities!

I actually wear this shirt, guys! This one has been one of my favorites and has been on a weekly rotation since I made it. I even wore it for Ollie’s first birthday party!

The collection is available today through March 24th as a bundle, and a discounted price! After today, it’ll be separated up and you can buy the pieces individually from each designer. But I wouldn’t delay–you’re going to want all 4 of these great patterns!!

Sloane Hat

Filed under: Crochet,Pattern - 17 Jan 2014

I’m telling you, my fingers are loving all the crochet lately! I’ve been working on another project, too, so stay tuned for that next week.

I was lucky enough to test the fantastic Sloane Hat for Delia from Delia Creates! This was her first ever crochet pattern and I think she did a fantastic job!

I made the Baby size for Ollie (since he may or may not have worn a pink hat several times recently when the weather got super cold) and he actually likes it! I thought he’d fight me on wearing a hat, but this one suited him.

The Sloane Hat is a slouchy beanie, perfectly hip and an easy crochet. I was able to whip it up in a few nights of DVR binging after bedtime.
