Stitching Spotlights 6.25.2010

Summer is beginning to settle in around here. It brings to mind a trip to Europe I took a few years ago. With that brings yearnings for sandals, long walks along a dirt road with fields of sunflowers on each side of me, long bohemian skirts and billowy silk tops and extra creamy italian ice cream. I can almost taste it…

This week’s spotlighted creation comes from Petite Josette. This is just one of her creations. She creates beautiful clothing in such a tasteful way. I just came across some of her creations on Burda Style and was completely blown away. The photographs of her creations are so inspiring too! I simply love her style and the way she gives her creations a little pizazz with her wonderful accessories, like here, with her black tie. Simple, sleek and sexy.

And just look at what Jennifer made! The most darling ironing board cover from my “How to Make an Ironing Board Cover” tutorial. It’s a good idea to go over and have read at what she says about the “breathability” of the cotton cover as opposed to the “non-breathable” covers that typically come from the store. I also loved the fact that even though she’s relatively new to sewing, she gave this tutorial a try and found it to be easy and useful for future sewing projects! It’s the sweetest ironing board cover ever Jennifer! Kudos!

Two really amazing giveaways came through my reader this week and I suppose it’s only fair that I fill you in. It’s a little hard not to get really excited and keep this kind of stuff to myself. Make sure you enter Grosgrain’s giveaway for this amazing Streamer Frock! Oh I want it so badly! The perfect dress for summer. And don’t forget to head on over to Gertie’s Blog for her anniversary giveaway. She’s giving away two $25 gift certificates to Colette Patterns. And hurry up! because Gertie’s giveaway ends tonight at midnight eastern time!

Happy Weekending!

  1. Ahhh! Thanks for putting my ironing board cover in your stitching spotlight! It is a great tutorial! I am singing it’s praises everywhere now! 🙂

  2. I need to make my own ironing board cover! My old one was looking gross, so I took it off to wash it, and the drawstring broke. Now I can’t get it back on, booooo. Thanks for the tutorial!

  3. I made an ironing board cover once, my sister has it now…
    Jennifer picked an awesome fabric for hers! And thanks for unselfishly sharing the giveaways with us 🙂
    Have a fantastic weekend!

  4. I need to stop being a bum and break out the sewing machine. I keep telling myself I’ll do it tomorrow. I really need a “breathable” ironing board cover though, so I’ll seriously contemplate making one tomorrow. ; ) More realistically, it’ll probably be at least a month or so.
