Bloero, Sleeveless empire waist bodice, Top, Tunic, Knee, Tea, and Floor Length Skirts, inseam pockets. This is a woven fabrics pattern.

If you are like me you still haven't even thought about making an Easter dress.  I've been so busy with everything that I have totally forgot.  (UGH this happens EVERY YEAR) 

Fear not!  We have you covered with the new Pickled Tink.  Make an adorable fancy dress that will wow everyone!  Extra fill skirts for twirling, even a bolero to add that final touch.

Ugly Fabric Contest!


Sew up your ugliest fabric using a PTP pattern. We need a fabric only photo and a finished product photo.
Comment on this post with your photos to enter. 
Contest will end 3/31 and winner will be announced 4/2

I'd just like to tell you a bit of back story on this. I've got a bin (a really large bin) full of fabric that someone "donated" to me. It's ugly with a capital U! In fact this is the least ugly fabric of them all. I couldn't figure out what to do with all of it. My youngest daughter is growing out of ALL of her night gowns... enter ugly fabric. SO I started to sew up all the ugly fabric into Night Night Gowns.....
They are so ugly they are actually are cute! So I thought it would be so much fun to see what kinds of ugly fabrics you all have in your stash and what you can make using them. I'm sure we will see some amazingly UGLY fabrics! 
Happy sewing and can't wait to see what you make.

Good Bye to a Favorite Pattern! By Laurie Roberts

Did you see the list of our retiring patterns? On the list are the Leia, Adorabelle and our favorite scrap stash buster the Acute Tee Pi. These patterns retire forever on April 1st. Our loss is your gain, check them out you can get all the sizes of each of the patterns for $6 total!

On a more positive note, did you know that we are one of the Sponsors for Week 10 in the 52 Week Sewing Challenge Group AND that we are hosting a Taylor Tee Sew Along Event (join in here for a 25% off discount code for the Taylor Tee of your choice)? This week’s challenge for the group is Colorblocking which we all know is kind of a big thing here. So, I am taking advantage of our retirement party and going with the Acute Tee Pie (I have 2 more cut out for the challenge this week too). I had some fabulous scrap left of this dinosaur bones fabric from Flying Pig Fabrics which was awesome to pair with some red solid fabric,  I got from Central Tx Fabrics. Check out that happy kiddo with her new dino Acute Tee Pi (and her new tooth brush from the dentist :))




Don't forget Manic Monday starting at 12:01am on the 5th! This week it will be the lovely Daisy Pinafore Pattern. You can get the dolly Daisy pattern for $1.75 or the kids version for $3.


Happy Sewing!
