Thanks so much for participating in our National Sewing Month fabric & pattern giveaway.  I got so excited about all the incredible fabric I forgot to mention why we were actually doing this giveaway!

The Costco Connection had an article this month called "In Stitches: Sewing sees a resurgence" where they talked about how Generation X may be the first generation that is growing up not being taught to sew because our mothers didn't force it on us, but we are choosing it for ourselves.  If you haven't read the Sew Sweet Patterns story, this is how and why we got started.  The Costco article reads "Spurred by a the new do-it-yourself culture and the renewed interest in making things by hand, young women are embracing needle and thread in droves."  We think this is pretty fabulous and are happy that you have all chosen us to be part of your handmade journeys.  I know that my mom (who is off scuba diving in Jamaica right now) is thrilled to be helping new sewers gain confidence and experience, hopefully without using the seam ripper too many times.  

And thank you so much to Down Shadow Lane, Stitches N' Giggles & Spice Berry Cottage for your willingness to participate with us and giveaway some of your beautiful fabric.

Happy Sewing!

Harper Turns Two!

This sweet & sassy girl turned two  turned two last week. 
Still trying to absorb that.
And she is still trying to figure out how to do 2 with her fingers. 

Thought I'd share a glimpse of the last year...
Winter Beach Day
Ghetto Pool time in the front yard
Aunt Jessi's sunglasses
The Mascara incident of 2011
She's a kisser...I am in trouble
Fed a few animals at our local petting zoo
And a few from her birthday week (yes, we celebrate the whole week around here).
Off to Legoland with Asher
Build a Bear LOVE
Mermaid Birthday Party

Pretty Cupcakes
Great end to a great week!

Now that the big birthday is over, we are working hard to put finishing touches on our new patterns!  We have our product shoot on Wednesday and hope to have them up in the shop soon!

The details on our big pattern & fabric giveaway will be revealed tomorrow!  So check back to enter!!
