Summer crafting! :D

Origami bags for trips to the farmer’s market :D Pattern on Whip Up.


Scarf to shrug for breezy summer nights. How-to on Scarves dot net.


I think I might try to make this summery dress! Tutorial on Merricks Art.


Ice cream pillows bring cool thoughts. Pattern by Twinkie Chan on Michaels.


From plain t-shirt to fabulous shrug – like magic! By Aunt Peaches.


Have always been intrigued by crocodile stitch. Might start by making these lovely flowers from B Hooked.

  • I’ve not seen that dress tutorial before. It is stunning! I can’t wait to see your version. The tutorial looks so simple, but I’m a little hesitant to wing it on a dress quite yet. (Newbie seamstress alert!) ;)

    And, that crochet icecream pillow is the cutest. I need one on my couch STAT! I’m pinning that one.

    • i sew my first dresses by winging it and ended up with lots of dresses not quite fitting :D (that’s why i like to use fabric from thrifted dresses or bed sheets) i think the writer of that pattern also winged it a bit by tracing a shirt for the top part… i say, if you can sew a straight line, you can sew that dress! go for it :D

  • Ooooh, ice cream pillow! :D
