Spring Sewing Swap

Thank you to Kerry of Kestrelmakes for organising the Spring Sewing Swap.  I was very lucky to be paired with Alexa of Almost a Hippy.  Look at the wonderful things she found for me!

First, this beautiful butterfly print jersey fabric.

I have a choice of two patterns in mind, both from Burda magazine February 2013 –

Then this wonderful vintage French pattern from Les Patrons Marie Claire.  I’m intrigued by the front panel detail in the illustration.

Polka dots would look good for this, I think.

And finally, a length of chiffon, buttons, and a handmade heart.

Thank you so much Alexa for these beautiful things.  I shall try to do them justice – no pressure!

Do pop on over to Alexa’s blog Almost a Hippy to see what I sent her.
