Now for the part you've all been waiting for! This month's pattern designer was a secret, and I'm ready for you to find out who it is! On the info card in your box, you'll find your download code for a free pattern from Ellie Inspired! I love her patterns, they are so fun and easy to follow, and there are so many to choose from! She covers a huge range of sizes, from 18" dolls through babies, children up to size 16, and women's through size 24W! Look for the special Stitch Box Monthly item listed on her Craftsy shop here: Ellie Inspired on Craftsy, and when you purchase that listing, put your download code and pattern choice in the notes, and she'll email your pattern to you! Easy Peasy! You'll want to check out her website over at www.ellieinspired.com and see some more pictures of the patterns, and inspiration on her blog! Now, let's stitch up something awesome!
Hello again! I hope you're all loving your June boxes, they were one of my favorites to put together! I looooove the new Vintage Market fabric from designer Tasha Noel, which is a Riley Blake fabric. Each of you received two coordinating yards of it, and I can't wait to see what you make with it! Click the picture below to go check out more inspiration pictures over on Tasha Noel's blog!
You also received a classic red ric rac trim, the jumbo size, which is my favorite! I also love medium ric rac and small ric rac, but don't we all?! There was also a 12" white eyelet zipper, which will look great on the back of a little dress, or a purse! There's a tutorial on Craftsy for how to sew it in, which you can follow here: Craftsy - Exposed Zippers. There's also a YouTube video from Fashion Sewing Blog TV, if you're a visual person!
Also in the June boxes was a bottle of Iron-Off hot iron cleaner, which is a great tool to keep with your pressing supplies (like the Best Press you might have received in a previous Stitch Box) to get the gunk and build-up off your iron and your fabric clean! Also, there was a package of Lastin clear elastic, which is so versatile and easy to use! The first time I heard about it was when I was first starting to sew with knits, and learned that you could stabilize shoulder seams with it to keep them from giving you extra trouble when constructing a shirt or hoodie. But they can also be used in woven fabrics, swimwear, and as a quick and easy gathering method! Check out this YouTube video (also from Fashion Sewing Blog TV, they have tons of cool tutorial videos!).
