two notes for wednesday

First of all, you know I love Creativebug and Pinterest, right?  Well, Creativebug is holding a big Pinterest contest with some seriously great prizes. (I know that because some of them are from us!). Hop on over to their blog for details.


Creativebug Pinterest Contest


Also, since a lot of you are starting to think about sewing the Fairy Tale Dress, quite a few of you are asking questions about making and fitting a muslin. So starting tomorrow I’ll be posting a tutorial to help you along. We’ll start with instructions on making a muslin, so you’ll understand the process, and then we’ll move on to some simple fit issues you might encounter along the way. I hope this will help you to gain confidence in your sewing!
