It’s time for our What We Love! ♥ This will also be our last What We Love for 2014. So weird to say that; it seems as though the last couple months of the year just whizzed by. We started our What We Love segment on the blog in June, and have had so much fun sharing with you a little bit more about us. We get especially excited on Thursdays because we get to choose our weekly “image”, and trust us, we don’t take it lightly. LOL. This week, we also wanted to include another bonus “what we love” and that would be all of YOU. We love you guys every week, but wanted to let you know. We appreciate you sosososo much. More than you’ll ever know. Okay, enough sappiness lol. Onto what else we’ve loved most this week… ♥

Hi everyone,

 

 

 

 

Happy Thursday! We hope you are all having a lovely day. Just a reminder…our two holiday giveaways are still going strong until January 7th! You can enter on our Instagram and Facebook for some bundles of fabric prettiness!! :)

 

It’s time for our Thankful Thursday!! Soso much to be thankful for, and as this year is coming to an end, we have been reminiscing of all the wonderful people we have met and all the incredible partnerships we have been a part of. Thank you to each and every person who has filled our year with bunches of creativity, fun, excitement, and color!!

 

And speaking of amazing partnerships, we are thanking BurdaStyle today. We adore the BurdaStyle Magazine because it is a great source for all things sewing and fabric-related, with a modern twist…and lots of awesome fashion tidbits, which we appreciate. They know the latest and upcoming trends, and coordinate their articles and projects accordingly. It’s getting your seasonal source of fashion & trends AND fantastic patterns/tutorials/sewing tips all in one!! Yup, we’re big fans. In their latest magazine issue for Winter 2015, the theme was all about getting cozy, while staying chic, during the colder months. Their cover photo features the coolest of faux fur coats that we are just in love with! SO fab!

As well, flipping through the magazine, you may find a familiar project…our Smoking Slippers Tutorial! Our Smoking Slippers are a great project to make for yourself, or as a last minute DIY gifts for friends and family. They are super cute, super stylish, and super cozy – yup, not much more you can ask for! As well, they are perfect for both men and women, so it’s also a super versatile project.

 

We are so happy that BurdaStyle loves our Smoking Slippers!! Thank you for the wonderful feature, we are so thrilled!! You can find the free project and pattern for our Smoking Slippers here. Be sure to check out the latest Winter 2015 issue of BurdaStyle (you won’t regret it, fellow sewing enthusiasts), and their website for lots more. Have a lovely day, everyone!

 

 

 

Happy Sewing!
