Striped Knits at Raystitch

Hamburger Liebe for Michas Stoffecke

You may know German designer Susanne Firmenich, aka Hamburger Liebe, from her Spoonflower designs, which I have featured here before.

I went looking for cotton lawn prints and spotted these at Fabric.com. They’re very cute and a bargain to boot. The black and white stripes below are the perfect size to get in on the [...]

Robert Kaufman: London Calling 2

When the weather starts to warm up, a gal’s mind turns to spring sewing (especially when a gal was superpregnant at this time last year and the torching of that wardrobe has left her closet skirtless this year).
