New Patterns!

I rarely buy new sewing patterns anymore -- I have so many (500+?), that those along with the Burda WOF, Topkids, and Ottobre magazines means I probably have just about every design imaginable, with just a few tweaks here and there.

Anyway, I joined an Apron Swap with the Reclaiming The Home group at Ravelry. Pattern links were being shared, and I fell in love with the Emmeline Apron. Isn't it cute??? I can't wait to get started on it. I plan to add pockets, and I plan to make the tops of them gathered into a band, so they match the bib. It'll be fun to stash dive for the fabrics.

I bought my pattern from Sew, Mama, Sew! and decided to find something else to make the shipping charge 'worth' it (I know I'm not the only one that does that!). I picked up the new Amy Butler Lotus Tunic and Cami. It'll be perfect for our upcoming trip to Arizona. I was also amazed at how fast the patterns arrived! Now I need to attempt to clean up the sewing room and get sewing.

I love both of those! I'm so impressed with your talent.

What a gorgeous apron that is! I wish I had one like that - I could be all jazzed up for cooking.

Great patterns, Linda! I've had my eye on both of them.

Ok after seeing this on your blog Friday, I ran into this pattern at the quilt shop Saturday and had to buy it! It's so cute! I haven't been keeping up with Amy Butler's new patterns, and there are several bag patterns I now want. I also got the Anna tunic, which after getting it home I almost like better than the Lotus tunic. Can't wait to see yours made up!
