Hello everyone! I am super happy to be guest blogging for Sara’s Purse Palooza today!
The pattern I chose to review was “The Ava Bag” by Two Peas in a Pod
Link up your completed Ava Bags from the sew along! If you’ve completed more than 1 bag, please complete a separate link for each bag. You are welcome to link from your blog, or from another photo hosting site, such as Flickr or Photobucket. Please let me know if you need help linking!
This past April, I hosted a sew along for the Sis Boom Jamie Dress. Tons of you sewed along and made the dress (and some made more than one!!). I have a tentative schedule of more sew alongs that will be happening this summer on my blog. All sew alongs will be accompanied by a discount for supplies, and giveaway prizes at the end for all participants.
I’m organizing a sew along (more details to come soon) for 2 of the Two Peas in a Pod Designs sewing patterns, and I received the patterns in the mail yesterday. I couldn’t wait to get started on the Ava Bag so I could field questions on it, and here it is! It’s very easy (about a 3 hour project…but the first hour was spent cutting and fusing my fabrics), and really cute!
Wow, it’s busy on my blog today! Make sure you don’t miss the guest posts from my friends Joel and Kim. Don’t let Joel’s long article scare you….it is *incredibly* useful information from a professional photographer that you can use to shoot better photographs! I think if I make those changes to my camera and purchase a tripod and foamboard like he recommended, and also use Kim’s editing advice, I can get some darn-good sewing pictures!
