On To Round # 4


Moving on to Round 4 feels amazing. I have had butterflies in my stomach all weekend. Second guessing all of my design decisions. This is such a tough competition and all of these women are incredible seamstresses.  I am learning so much!  I didn't know you could print on canvas (like Michelle, from Sewhenge) or combining paraffin and beeswax to make a solution you can use to waterproof your bags (like Teresa from Dandelion Drift). At the same time I feel honored to be in these challenges. 

The next challenge is the Carolyn Pajama Pattern by Closet Case Files. I have been looking at the Ginger Jeans Pattern forever. This will be a great first pattern from her collection to sew up. Sew Modern has also given us $75 to shop with, so I have been combing through their stash. They are based in Los Angeles, CA, I hope I receive the fabric with enough time to sew. There is so much to do; print the pattern templates, take measurements, cut templates, wash fabric, cut fabric and sew. 
I will keep you posted!
