I had the awesome opportunity to go to Quilt Market with some really fun people! While I was there, I met Melissa Averinos and I even got a copy of her new book, “Small Stash Sewing”. (Ok, so it was a book signing and she doesn’t know who I am, but I did meet her)
On my 7 hour drive home from market, I poured over the book and picked out the things I really, really had to make.
The first thing I made was this belt. Now I can show my Tula Pink Plume love everywhere I go! This was very simple to make and the instructions were so easy to follow.
Side note: I wanted to show how cute the belt looks on, but there isn’t enough photoshop in the world to make my muffin top disappear!
Since making the belt was so easy, I decided to make the Faux Pillowcase Dress next. Now I want to point out I have never made any type of clothing before and I was a little worried. But the directions were easy to follow and soon I had it finished:
Now I would love to pass the book on to a lucky winner, leave a comment saying hi and next Monday I will randomly select a winner.
Good luck and Happy Memorial Day!
Hug a Military Service member and tell them thanks!
Update: I guess I should mention that it is signed by the author, but she wrote my name in it. I hope no one minds.
