While I’ve clearly been busy with getting married this weekend and preparing to leave the country (and my sewing machines!) for four months tomorrow, a couple of exciting things that I’ve been working on have recently seen the light of day. My first article in Sew News magazine came out in the August/September 2014 issue – keep your eyes out because I have several more articles coming out in future issues.
The pattern in the Aug/Sep issue was named Do The Twist and shows how to “create a versatile silk scarf that only looks complicated.” It explains how to make an 8-stranded braid of fabric and sew it into a scarf. I will admit that I like the shorter corduroy version more and will definitely be wearing that sample this winter! It’s a pretty easy project but it has a high impact and just think of all the different colors and fabrics you could use!
In other fun news, I recorded a podcast with the lovely Corinne Begg of the Sewing Affair. She’s just started a podcast with the thought that she’s always curious what it would be like to get to chat with other sewing bloggers – so the podcast gives her the excuse and allows others to slake their curiosity as well! I had a delightful time chatting with her (seriously, we couldn’t stop talking!) and was honored to help her kick off her new podcast!
