Hi Everyone! Happy Friday! After last week’s post on my June Favorites, I wanted to try to start a series of Friday favorites. This series will be a mix of lifestyle and sewing related content, but something to check out before you kick your weekend off!
Did you catch my Instagram Post from Tuesday? I hit the big 1,000 followers on Instagram and I teamed up with Gabriela from Chalk and Notch to give away $25 in pattern credit in her shop! To enter is so easy – just follow myself and Chalk and Notch on Instagram and tag a friend! You could win so many of my favorite patterns — The Pony Tank [so you could join the #ponytankparty hosted by @1000hoursofsewing and @havinsewmuchfun on Instagram]
You could make the beautiful Farrah Top
Or the Waterfall raglan for you or your daughter!
Speaking of the Farrah, did you see Emily and Gabriela’s Knit Farrahs? I have been dying to see how they turned the woven Farrah pattern into a knit tee or dress and they knocked it out of the ball park! Emily used the Seamly Basic Tee pattern for the sleeves and it turned out amazing. I now want to make a knit version ASAP!
- Bathing Suits
My husband and I are going to Hawaii in November (cue happy dance now!) so I’ve been bathing suit browsing recently. Although at some point I’d love to make my own suit, I try not to totally rely on me doing that ahead of the trip. I’m absolutely in love with this bathing suit, but it’s soooo expensive.
- Tinder Love Story
- Buzzfeed articles are one of my favorites, but this one gets a big thumbs up. Need a Friday pick me up? Read this article. Seriously how cute is this??? I like the rest of the universe is rooting for these two to get married now! I can’t wait to hear the conclusion to this one.
Do you watch the Bachelorette?? I’ve been keeping up this season and have so many thoughts. But, if you watch it you should check out Sheaffer Told Me To’s weekly recaps. They are SO funny!
That’s all I have for today! Happy Friday and have a great weekend! What were your favorites from the week??
