What I've been up to

Life's been pretty busy this week, but lots of stuff has happened. On Sunday, I bought a couple of reprinted vintage patterns from Simplicity for $0.99 each! Yay! Some of them are a bit out of my range right now, but I figured I might as well stock up while they're cheap. I got a fifties jumper pattern, a forties suit pattern and a modern wrap dress pattern that I think would look vintage with the right print.

Hopefully these lovelies will be in my closet soon!

I got some fabric for my next project-the tie bag I spotted a free pattern for. I chose a cute rockabilly polka dotted cherry print with green lining. I'm super excited about it! I've got my pattern cut out for it and I plan on starting to sew tonight.

This print is just so fun!

I also got a zipper foot. In addition, I picked up a surprise for all of you. This means a giveaway in the future. So, invite your friends so they can be in on it too.

My first blossom of the month from Belle Blossoms came in yesterday. It's very wonderful. I'll be doing a review on it later this week.

Well, now I'm off to sew!


  1. Yay! I love 99 cent pattern sales! I've stocked up on all of the retro ones that they have. I haven't sewn a lot of them yet- but I will! I -love- the pants from that suit pattern. Vogue also has some killer vintage patterns and sometimes, they go on sale for $4, which is a steal for vogue. Some of them are on the more difficult side but they are so beautiful!

  2. Great patterns!I especially like the middle one.Good luck with the bag project,the fabric is so sweet,i love things with cherries on them:)
