It’s natural for us all as blog readers and internet hopper-arounders to wonder, from time to time, how someone does everything that they do. We picture how we’d fit that into our own lives. That happens to me when I browse Melissa Stramel’s blog and shop. She designs fabric, embroidery patterns, sewing patterns and has now written a book! (?!?!)
Four of our eight Skirt Week winners will receive a copy of Melissa Stramel’s new book “A Year of Making Life Beautiful.”
And you’ll find the pattern for this “Cherished” dress pattern in sizes 2T to 10. Patriotic color palette entirely up to you. There’s also a matching pattern specifically for 18″ dolls– and in lots of her dress patterns!
We can’t be the only ones that have a hard time remembering to take the reuseable grocery bags into the store, right? Wondering whether making one as cute as the “Bountiful” bag would make it easier to forget the forgetting.
This is just a *little* of what Melissa does. Still no idea how it all happens, but you can read more about these and her recent trip to Quilt Market and her upcoming book tour here on her blog!
