We love our Betty Ann pattern named for a beloved mentor of mine. This Maxi looks so terrific on Jeanne Hamling, one of our long time testers daughters. Look at the shoes my friends , that’s what caught my eye!!! I love her confidence and pride in wearing one of mom’s creations!!! All of Jeanne’s kids are beautiful and I had the pleasure of meeting this one Miss Lily out in Utah!! Folks I’m sorry I won’t be at quilt market but I will be thinking of all of you!!! This pattern can be found under patterns on this site as well as many other pattern platforms! This fabric is part of our Crazy Love collection and can be found here. Thank you Glam Fabrics on Etsy.. In Australia we found some here. Thank you Fabric Traders AU
So there you have it , a pretty girl in a pretty handmade dress and coordinated shoes..We love you Lily!!
Honestly, these are the best colors I’ve seen so many will work beautifully with Circa. I couldn’t help myself and I hope you will find something that works for you. Feel free to call upon me for matching to Circa!!! It won’t be long now folks it’s around the corner. xo
I say this when I refer to Kathy Hennessy because she is everyone’s cheerleader and runs an incredible group on facebook for like minded sewing gals/guys. What a forum it is and I love to see the relationships and kinship’s that develop out of such a place. She has ground rules and insists that others play fair and she encourages everyone in their passions and pursuits. Her blog the same name as the Facebook page she runs is called Handmade Dress Haven. This is where it gets exciting. Here she does a tutorial on the Crazy Love Dress she created. I love the bib front on this special frock. Follow the tutorial here.
As always thanks Kathy for letting me peek in to your sewing world and sharing the joys!! Love your 6 year old.
Kristy Smith from Hopeful Threads is having a grand time with her Girls World pups, using Happy Land she is creating the most sweetest of pooches.

By the way make sure to hoard all the Happy Land you love as we make way for Circa!!!!! xo

I bow down to Carla Crim on this one Not as easy as most of our patterns the Ethan and Marco patterns will challenge you to take the next step. In true Sis Boom form Carla writes it so the beginner can stay engaged and create something wonderful for the boys/ men in your life. Carla will not bring a pattern to market that all levels cannot create. We are so excited about this! Folks were so enthusiastic about seeing a men’s shirt in Happy Home that we decided to offer it in our pattern collection. Kudos to the Scientific Seamstress for bringing it to life!!! So let’s create!!! They are in our shop and will be distributed to our sellers very soon.Please note these are long sleeves with cuffs we forgot to show you them with the cuff..next photoshoot. Fabric found here. Thanks Hawthorne Threads!
