Button Up Jumper ~ Pattern Testing

'Button Up Jumper" - pattern by Once Upon a Sewing Machine ~ tester version by Threading My Way

I recently had the pleasure of pattern testing the Button Up Jumper, for Donna and Rachel, from Once Upon a Sewing Machine. If you ever have the opportunity to work with these two ladies, don't hesitate. They were both very professional, easy to work with and quick to respond to any queries.

Charlie Dress ~ Pattern Review...

Charlie Dress by Minog & Grace... Pattern Review  ~ Threading My Way

In July, I was lucky enough to win a copy of the Charlie dress, by Mingo & Grace, and courtesy of the Dotted Whale. I love the style of the dress - the dropped waist and the gathered flounce skirt, teamed with the plain top, so I was keen to sew one up.

Scooter Buddy... a bag to hang from a scooter. Tutorial by Sew Outnumbered ~ Sewn by Threading My Way

Today I'm joining in with Natalie, from Sew Outnumbered, for Day 5 of the Scooter Buddy blog tour. As soon as I saw the scooter buddy, I knew I was going to make one. Nat's invitation to join the blog tour just made it happen faster.

Mud Puddle Splashers...

Mud Puddle Spashers... sewn using a pattern by Fishsticks Designs ~ Threading My Way

Spring has arrived here in Australia and the weather is just beautiful. It's the best time of year and for me, it means more time spent out in my garden. The warmer weather also means a return to wearing shorts for most young boys. Little Mister has outgrown most of last year's shorts, so it's time to make some more.

What do you do with pre-loved jeans...

Most of us have at least a couple of pairs of jeans in our wardrobe at any given time. I'd be lost without them, as I wear jeans nearly every day. When they no longer fit, are too old to wear or are simply not a style we care to wear anymore, what can we do with them?
