Perfect Pattern Parcel #7: The Butterfly Sling by Emmaline Patterns


Perfect Pattern Parcel is back with their final parcel of the year.  This time around they have decided to focus on one of my favorite accessories, handbags.  A few months back I was asked if I'd like to participate by making one of the patterns from the parcel.  Take a look at my handbag collection and you'd know why I couldn't refuse.

Crazy Cat Lady Challenge: Leopard Print Wrap Tunic..Meeowww

Successfully sewing a wearable garment out of a cat themed fabric crowns you as the crazy cat lady in our world.  Me crazy? Yep! I've got the clothing to prove it and the 3 cats...all in the house... and I'm allergic...
