Seriously, this post is going to be all over the place.
First up, my Amy Butler Style Stitches book is for sale.
It's only $14 shipped.
Some of the bag patterns have been cut, but all pieces are still there.
Comment with your pp addy if you'd like it. :)
I love the outcome! I made a 3T for my skinny 4-year-old and it fits just the way I'd like. It was easy to put together, although I can't speak to the quality of the instructions because I didn't use them.
I want to be nice to other pattern designers, as I'm in the midst of trying my hand at it, but just compared to other pdf patterns I've used, I have to warn you that this one would be difficult for a beginner to put together. Do you see all the page overlap and wonkyness?! I was really surprised that the page edges didn't line up. If I didn't know from experience approximately how the pattern pieces were supposed to look, I would have been very confused.
Some of my friends have said this looks somewhat Japanese, which is a great compliment. Love that.
Ready for more randomness? I started making jewelry. Well, on a veeeeeery limited basis. I just got inspired and couldn't help myself. You can buy this Gift of the Magi themed necklace here. I loved that story as a child!
It's fall! in case you weren't aware... It's our last fall in Jackson, MS and our last trip to the pumpkin patch here was this past Saturday. I had to make special outfits, of course. I used my go to pattern for knit ruffles, Izzy and Ivy's Polly's Playclothes and used the Lily Giggle Zinnia pattern for the floral top on my 4-year-old.
Both are in Chez Ami knits.
Last but not least, I am steadily working with my awesome graphic designer towards a November release of some Molly Blossom patterns.
I have an oversized fold-over clutch, the Wendy zip (already in finished form in my shop), some appliqué designs and...
This is my newest design, being made into a pdf pattern as you read!
I will surely let you know as soon as my patterns are released in my shop.
phew! There's been a lot going on, and really there's even more than that, but I'll share the rest later.
