By now, it's been well-documented that I'm an Itch to Stitch (aff link) fangirl.

The drafting is always superb, … Continue reading Itch to Stitch Lago Tanks
Hey June has released their latest pattern. It's no secret I'm a fan of Hey June Handmade (aff link). I find their patterns to always be exceptionally drafted, the instructions are clear, and the format is professional.

Mmm. … Continue reading Sewing up Spring!
