Emmeline Apron Pattern

Welcome to Sew Spoiled!! I feel like a hostess! :)
I made this Emmeline Apron for my sister but I want to wear it all the time. My sister came over, she needed my help decorating some kitchen towels for a friend. Next thing I know, she has picked out fabric and the Emmeline apron and I am cutting out the pattern. A slight twist of my wrist... Ok, ok, really none at all and I was starting a new sewing journey. I love Sew Liberated patterns! They are easy to follow with just a few steps and pattern pieces. I know I will be making more of these for Christmas gifts. I think something that helped me a lot was working on it in stages. I do not have large blocks of time to work on projects, so picking a few step to complete at a time really helped me finish this project.
Sew Liberated has a book coming out in December!! It's on the top of my own wish list. I also want to get the Schoolhouse Tunic pattern which should be out Oct. 5th. Can't wait!!!

Petal Knot Jumpers Dresses


One of my favorite things to do is make clothes for my two little girls. They are so cute and fun! I have been collecting Patty Young's fabric from the Mezzanine collection this summer. I love the colors and designs. I decided to make a Petal Knot Jumper from Sandi Henderson's, Claire Pattern, so they could wear the jumpers through the fall months. There is not much of a Sew Spoiled Twist. I just made the skirt from the same fabric (instead of two toned like the pattern suggests) and did not add the apron (I did not want to hide the beautiful skirt fabric). The first thing my girls did when they tried them on was test the spin factor, which must have scored high because they continued to twirl most of the day way.
Happy sewing!

Zen Moment

I love these Gum Drop Cushions!!! The pattern and fabrics are by Amy Butler. I only had enough fabric for either one 24" cushion or two 18" cushions. I knew my two girls would want one each for movie and game nights so I made two. I had no idea they would be so popular! No sooner had I finished the knot to close the hole and they were bouncing all over them. The Gum Drop cushions look adorable stacked on top of each other in a corner or placed side by side against the wall.
The Sew Spoiled twist, I made them with 4 yards of different Nigella Home Decor fabrics and 8 bags of 20 oz. poly-fil. I bought 10 bags but only used 8. For Halloween, I might make some cute slipcovers that look like pumpkins:).
If you have this pattern, dust it off and try it out. If you don't have it, you can find it anywhere online. There are 5 Etsy shops currently carrying this pattern.
Happy Sewing!
