Today, is the first day of the Welcome to Twig + Tale Blog Tour. Although we have a very international line up, coincidentally, today all four are from the US. Although they share their home country, their makes are very versatile - showing off four different Twig + Tale patterns.
Kelly from Handmade Boy, who obviously sews for her son, also sews for herself and daughters, clearly fits in the "Where imagination runs wild" tagline from Twig + Tale. She often treats her kids with costumes (and lets us share in the fun, by showcasing them on her blog). "Playability" is a key factor in her sewing, and Kelly's son choose a Wolf Wild Things Coat. She lines the coat with Tomahawk Stripe Knit. Check out her blog for many more beautiful pictures.
Another Kelly, this time from Sew a Little Seam is also joining us today. Kelly's sewing always has some lovely inspiring details. She has tested for Twig and Tale a several times and we are still in awe of these Wild Things Coats. For the tour she created super cute Pixie Shorts that she lined with Nightfall - Magical Gust Fog. Visit her blog to see the shorts in their full glory.
Shelly from Sew Shelly Sew has three boys and a girl, but it is the girl that seems to get most of her sewing action. Shelly is comfortable with woven and knit fabrics alike and today she is showing that she can sew more than clothes. Shelly made a beautiful Fleur doll, and her hand embroidery is impeccable! Her doll is wearing a dress from Lavish Mother's Garden Rich. The beautiful Pixie Coat she sewed was planned to be lined with the same beautiful fabric. But Shelly's daughter insisted in a matching dress instead. Check out all Shelley's sews in her post.
Our last bogger of today is Michelle from Falafel and the Bee. She has shown on mutliple occasions that she can take up-cycling to the next level. Her blog has a special tab for her upcycling projects, but we feel that those projects where she creates with non-(standard) fabrics should get some special attention. Today, she is treating us a speciality fabric sew. She made a super soft Cat Wild Things Cape lined with Wonderland-Cheshire Feathers Pastry Metallic. Make sure you look through all the pictures on her post.
Tomorrow, we will be back with day two of the blog tour. For now you can fill in the rafflecopter to get a chance to win two yards of Art Gallery Fabric and five Twig + Tale patterns.
