guest posting at elsie marley!

listen.  i’ve only been blogging for 6.5 months.  when i get comments, it’s super exciting.  when i get emails from bloggers that i have been inspired by for years asking ME to guest post or pattern test for them, it completely blows my mind!

my mind is STILL blown by the fact that meg of elsie marley asked me to contribute to her weeklong leadup to her fall kids clothes week challenge (KCWC) with a tutorial for fun details to add to kids’ clothes.  meg was one of the first people to feature something i had sewn on her blog (my christmas party dress), and it was around then that i realized what an amazing little community sewing bloggers are.  so supportive of each other!  anyway, my post is up TODAY!  i made an oliver + s sailboat top for O from another of my husband’s oh-so-soft cotton knit j.crew sweaters, and added little elbow patches in herringbone flannel.  the cozy fall hoodie i made for Em was my first try at this elbow patch endeavor, as you now may have guessed.

KCWC is really fun, and it’s a great way to find new blogs and make some new internet friends, too!  won’t you come visit me at elsie marley?

oh who am i kidding, i’m sure 99% of my visitors today are visiting from THERE!  welcome, take a look around, and feel free to stay awhile!  🙂
