Onward to 2012!

(Colette Macaron from October) So everyone is doing a 2011 in review blog post but I’m far to lazy to use photoshop to compile all of my finished projects from the year, ha! It was 52 (just counting clothes sewn for myself) and that’s far to much image wrangling for me to do. I’d much rather jump into my plans for this year! But I am including a few of my faves made this past…

About a month ago I, along with a group of awesome sewing bloggers, received a surprise package in the mail. Portia sent us all thrifted items of clothing and asked us all to re-fashion what we had into something new, stylish and wearable. What I loved about making…
