Blog Tour: Sewing MODKID Style by Patty Young

Designer Patty Young has further rounded out her already-impressive resume with her new book Sewing ModKid Style, published by Wiley Craft. I am excited to play hostess to her blog tour today.

Ottobre on Etsy

Ottobre is a very highly regarded magazine of children’s clothing patterns. The Finnish company also publishes women’s clothing issues a couple times a year. If you’ve ever sewn with them or just flipped through, you’ve probably wondered about the great fabrics they use and figured that the apparel fabric stores in Finland must be amazing. [...]

Znok Design

I hope you don’t mind me paying all this attention to knits lately … since I started sewing with them for baby #2 they’ve been an obsession.

Nani Iro: Colorful Pocho Knit

These knits are part of the Nani Iro 10th Anniversary collection for Kokka. All the prints in this collection are stunning, but I just love how these all look together. Matatabi (disclosure: True Up sponsor) has them all, and has some nice up-close photos so you can see the pattern that is knitted into the [...]

Hanna Ruusulampi

{ Folklore Fish interlock knit for Ikasyr } I found Finnish designer Hanna Ruusulampi through Spoonflower, which led me not only to her amazing online portfolio (see English version of the fabric portfolio here) but also to a treasure trove of Finnish fabric shops. Hanna designed the interlock knit design Folklore Fish for the shop/mini-manufacturer [...]

The Great Knit Fabric Experiment

{ Harmony Art‘s knit prints }   I have to admit, though I have a few yards of it in my stash, I’ve never sewn with knits in my life. But Stitch Simple‘s recent Great Knit Fabric Experiment is getting me motivated. If you aren’t already familiar with Stitch Simple, it’s an online shop offering [...]
