I’m taking part in the Itch to Stitch Birthday Blog Tour next week. I was asked by the lovely Kennis if I would be interested in making up one of her patterns as part of the Blog Tour.
There are 25 of us posting over 7 days starting this Thursday.
I wanted to keep it simple so have chosen the Kathryn top to make. It comes as both a dress and a top.
As usual it’s last minute but I have at least cut out the pattern and bought my material. Yes, bought.
I came across this amazing online retailer from Hong Kong, Modes4U
It’s not cheap but the variety is fabulous and it didn’t take me long to fill my basket (oops!) with enough fabric to qualify for free postage!
In close up we have (this is from the web site as my fabric has photographed grey!)
then this dotty
and finally this wintry
My Kathryn will be made out of the blue. I have a small toddler hoodie in mind for the bear. My spots will wait for another day.
The fun starts this Friday the 8th and I’m due to post on Monday October the 12th, so look out for it.
There will be a link to several giveaways.
Love, Lucie xx
