So, let's get started...
First up is Joyce from Edinburgh, Scotland. She started her blog just a couple of years ago as she was so inspired the fantastic sewing blogs she was reading. Joyce loves to sew, but she also enjoys haberdashery shops as well as rummaging around in charity stores. You can find her blog here, http://thestorysewfar.blogspot.com/
Joyce loves making tops and she does such a beautiful job. The above top was one of her favorite makes of 2015. She said that the print is just so her. Below you can see a number of more recent makes.
Loved this coat. Joyce said that it is such a pleasure to be able to make a coat that she not only loves, but fits!She decided to give jeans a try. Well, I don't think she will ever purchase another pair of jeans as these are perfect!
Not only does she love to sew, she knits too!
Joyce has taken on the Vintage Pledge for 2016. I'm really looking forward to seeing what she creates.
Next up is Mary who is not afraid to take on a challenge. You can find her blog here, http://stylememary.blogspot.com/
A simple shirt dress becomes incredible with handmade buttons and beautiful embroidered touches.
Love the pop of plaid lining.
Not only does she sew beautifully, check out this crocheted work of art.
She also quilts. Check out the precious label in the lower right hand corner.
In 2013, Mary won the Sewing For Children contest on Pattern Review. This is one lucky little girl!
Be sure to check out Mary's blog as I only scratched the surface.
I don't know what I want to do first, get out my sewing machine, or grab a crochet hook!!! Sadly, my crochet skills are quite lacking.
BTW, the jeans that Joyce made are the Jamie Jeans from Named Patterns. You can read her review HERE, and find the pattern HERE.
Wishing you a wonderfully inspired day!
