Enchanted Bow Skirt by Jeni Baker

Happy Wednesday! I'm going to try to keep things short and sweet today, since it's late!

I finished up my Enchanted Bow Skirt today! I ended up going with a coral/red fabric for the sash, since I plan on wearing it with a mustard cardigan! I love this pattern, it just turns out so cute! It's a free pattern by Karyn, you can find it on her blog, here. Both fabrics are from Rhapsodia by Art Gallery Fabrics!

Christina reviewed this awesome travel sewing kit pattern for Travel Handmade last week and I knew I had to make it to take with me to Sewing Summit!  I whipped it up right away using a print from Lilly Belle by Bari J and my current favorite Pure Element, Mauvelous! It fits all my little sewing tools! You can find the pattern here.

Another happy stack of fabric! The new collection from the Art Gallery In-House Studio team, Floressence! I love the mix of geometrics and florals, so fun!

This Saturday, The Sewcial Lounge is celebrating it's first birthday with a party! Join us from 10am-5pm! I'll be setting up a table (along with others too!) with lots of vintage sheet goodies and maybe even a few handmade items! Either way, there will be cupcakes and prizes! I hope you'll stop by if you're local to Madison!
