I hosted the #ilovemystash photo-a-day challenge last month, and wow, it was so much fun! If you posted one of the 800+ photos of your fabric stash, thank you so much. I loved watching my Instagram feed fill up with one of my biggest obsessions – beautiful fabric!
I’m totally addicted to linen at the moment, especially the soft, drapey kind by Merchant and Mills. I never knew linen could feel so silky until I got my hands on this fabric – courtesy of the exciting new online fabric store, Selvage.
I finally got a long desk for my sewing machine and serger to sit next to each other – permanently. This is a big change from one year ago, when we lived in a studio apartment in San Francisco. Our tiny dining table was my sewing table / kitchen bench / work desk. You’ll see lots more serger projects on Sew in Love now 🙂
I love scrolling through Instagram, but my account has been looking rather sad of late. I was lying in bed the other night thinking, “Damn, I forgot to post something on Instagram AGAIN!” I’m thinking about sewing and crafts everyday – so why is it so hard to remember to take a photo and share something on social media?
One of the reasons I love Japanese sewing patterns is their simplicity. The clean lines are perfect for showcasing beautiful fabrics, whether it’s a printed silk or a plain organic linen. Today’s I’ve put together my top Japanese sewing patterns so you can finally use that too-pretty-to-cut fabric hiding in your stash!
