Crafting Con: Mario Inspiration!

2015 February 3

Good Tuesday morning to you all. Today I’m guest posting over at Friends Stitched Together for Crafting Con! This month’s theme is Mario and my job was to sew something and write an inspiration post. It’s the beginning of the month, and you can head over there each week to see the four contestants’ entries. I’m excited to see who will win!

As far as the project, my husband had the amazing idea for it and my oldest is super happy with her new Bimaa zip-up hoodie, but there wasn’t any inspiration in my sewing technique or construction methods. Pop over to find out what happened and get (the proper) construction details to help you make one for the Mario geek in your life. (And see why my favorite part is hiding inside the hood!)

Meanwhile, I am now always-and-forever-more going to remember how to add a zip-front to a non-zip shirt pattern…

Let’s check out some gorgeous fabric now shall we? I wanted to post the winner of the Country Clothesline giveaway (sponsored) that ended last week. If you recall, owner Sylvia put the lovely “Winter Blues” bundle (above) up for grabs and Sarah C. from Pennsylvania is the lucky winner! It’s in the mail and on it’s way as we speak. If you are in need of some springy inspiration to get through the end of winter you’ll be sure to find it in the Country Clothesline shop.

There’s more fabric-related fun coming this week, hope it’s begun well for you and see you again soon!

    I love, love the chevron dress and all the photos! Thanks for bringing a smile to my chilly day. The Mario hoodie is fantastic ;) Thanks as always for taking the time to keep us in your creative loop. Stay warm, cold weather about to hit once again. Take care.
