Sometimes (like the week before school starts 😬🙈) I have so many sewing projects that it gets hard to keep track of what I’m making for who, what sizes, modifications and fabrics go with what project and how many supplies I need from where.
So, to save my own sanity, I made my Sewing Project Planning Tool and I love being able to share it with all of you (for free!)
Click the link in my profile or go to bit.ly/MMFnewsletter to sign up for my weekly emails (full of pretty fabric, project inspiration, shop news and sale announcements) and I will send you a link to download your copy of this amazing tool as a thank you for allowing me into your inbox!
We are talking about our hopes and dreams for our handmade wardrobes over in the Facebook group today, search Maker Mountain MVPs on Facebook to join in and get in on the inspiring conversation!
And I firmly believe that this Cobblestone Jersey from @artgalleryfabrics belongs in everyone’s handmade wardrobe- classic gray and white, fun pattern! Matches everything without being boring. It’s perfect!
All @sewliberated patterns are back in stock! And, seriously, thank goodness, because we need these amazing dresses and tops in our closets, like, as soon as possible.
Click the link in my profile to check them all out!
Every morning when it’s time to get dressed around here, all I hear is “unicorn dress!” “Unicorn dress!”
And who could blame them? Enchanted Unicorn organic knit by @kristenbalouch for @birchfabrics combines with the free girls’ racerback pattern by @heyjunehandmade makes the perfect summer or back to school dress.
I would say that I want to make one for myself, but I only have two yards of this gorgeous fabric still in the shop and I would love for one of you to create something beautiful to be LOVED with it! Click the link in my profile or go to but.ly/MMFjersey to make them yours!
Santa Cruz, Silicon Valley and Bay Area friends- I would LOVE for you to come join me for an amazing morning together! We will take some time for ourselves, to learn a new skill (shirring), make something beautiful for a little person we love, make new friends (or sign up with the friends you already have and get some quality time in together), laugh, eat brunchy treats and enjoy coffee and mimosas all under the big trees in the Maker Mountain Fabrics studio! Tap the link in my profile to check out all the details and reserve your spot now!
First Day Of School Outfit Sew Along is going to happen here and in the Facebook group August 13-17!
You can sew any pattern, with any fabric! I will have daily prompts and you all can share pictures of your work tagging me and using #mmffirstday . We will all cheer each other on and be inspired and every picture shared is an entry to win a $25 shop credit! Start making your plans now, buy a new pattern, order your fabric. All orders made through Monday night will go out Tuesday so you are sure to get them in time!
If your little people are too young for school- you can still join, just sew them something special!
If you are a teacher- sew for yourself! Every picture you share gets you two entries because I know how busy you are getting ready for the school year!
Homeschool mamas- sew Along too! They can definitely have a special new year outfit even for at home!
Any other questions? Ask away!
Me, shipping orders out from Wednesday’s flash sale. Thank you all for the excitement! Be sure to use #makermountainfabrics when you share pictures of all the beautiful things you create, I so love seeing them!
The PERFECT skirt! Wear it with a tee in the summer, leggings and a sweater in the winter. The flat front and elastic back make it both super flattering and super comfortable, and the pockets are actually big enough to hold treasures! It’s amazing friends! And I only have a few copies left in stock and I would love for you to get one and create your next favorite thing in your closet! Go to my profile for the link!
It’s only August 1st, there is still plenty of time to celebrate the sun, and adding this Sunshine Linen to my handmade wardrobe is pretty much the best way I can think of to do that!
