Stitching Spotlights – 1/13/2012

Happy Friday the 13th Everyone! Yay! First of all today, I want to especially thank you guys for your wonderful comments about my shirtdress! You all definitely know how to make a girl feel like a million bucks. Gush…Thank you, Thank you! I’ve got some more fun stuff to share today. Let’s see, first we’ve got to set the mood.

I know I’m a music buff craze. Hopefully its something you guys can appreciate as I tend to start my Stitching Spotlights with a little musical inspiration. I love listening to music as I work on items for the shop and as I sew for myself. Mr. S introduced me to Spotify recently. Have you guys heard of this? It’s the GREATEST! It’s an application that you can download to your computer and you can listen to entire albums from different artists. I love this! You can also create playlists just like in Itunes. Have to admit that I think this is so much better than Pandora because I get to decide what I want to listen to and who. Yes! I’ve been on a serious Neil Diamond kick with Spotify lately too. Get your music fix too!

Today’s spotlighted creation comes from Amanda at Amanda’s Adventures in Sewing. Amanda is one of my favorite bloggers. She makes the most beautiful clothing. This darling jacket is no exception. She’s a mom, she’s got style and she dresses up in her glorious handmade creations everyday – this spells out to be simply marvelous in my book! Simply delicious jacket Amanda!

Have you guys heard about Megan Nielsen Sewing Patterns? You’d better head on over. She’s got a great line up and I love that she’s got a whole collection dedicated to pregnant women too. One of her most popular patterns also comes in a kit – with fabric that she made from her original clothing line. I love kits! They are the best!

More inspiration that’s caught my eye this week:
Two stellar blogs are jointly hosting a Colette Pattern Sew Along – making all of the patterns from the recently released Colette Sewing Handbook.
I love this travel sewing pack and have a mind to make one of my own.
Sallieoh posted a great tutorial on how to alter a sleeve cap to make it fit the bodice – odd how there’s always too much ease in the sleeve cap for a commercial pattern!
Catherine Daze tried out a new binding foot, now I’m quite sure I need one too.
A gorgeous free vintage knitting pattern from Liz – even though I don’t knit, it’s fun to drool over something this beautiful!
Gertie posted an awesome tutorial for a sleeve gusset! Check it out!

Have a marvelous weekend everyone!

Sunni
