Happy Sunday Everyone!
I usually do a recipe post on Sunday, but I thought that rather than wait, I would get the ball rolling on the new August/September issue of Sew News Magazine. I do have a sew along post included in the magazine, but it won't begin until September, so again, I wanted you to be able to begin to enjoy the magazine now. There are a number of great articles and a fun, free pattern too, so let's take a look...
There's a great article on fitting the aging figure from Joi Mahon.
We all want our garments to be beautifully finished. This article covers seam finishes as well as hemming.
So many of you enjoyed the Magic Bias dress from Fashion In Harmony. With this article you'll continue to expand your knowledge of working with bias cut garments. You can find the pattern for the Bias Cowl Top HERE.
Through September 30, 2016, this fabulous Messenger Bag pattern is FREE!!! What a great back to school gift this would make. You can download the free pattern HERE.
And finally, the featured sew along that I will be doing, a fabulous bag from Swoon Patterns. If you've never heard of Swoon Patterns, you are in for a treat. So many great bag patterns. This is the Stella Weekender Bag. The picture doesn't really do the bag justice. I'll do another post soon and go over the details of the bag and give you a better idea of the size. It has a little of the old fashioned train case feel, kinda sorta.
Now for the best part...
I have 3 magazines to give away!!!
If you would like a chance to win, just leave a message on this post. I'll announce the winners on Friday, July 29, 2016.
