Tada !!!!!! Today we have fabulous features from last week’s party (despite the craziness of the site challenges. Thank you all for hanging in there while we went through it!)

Girls Summer Dresses – Free Sewing Pattern


Mie from SewingLikeMad is one of the most generous seamstress I know. And today, she’s sharing with us again a new free pattern to make darling girls summer dresses, just like this. She actually made 2 variations of this theme called ‘inner grandma’ dress…. Interesting concept, cute girl, cute dress!

Inspirational Pendant Jewelry Making Technique

Gorgeous Beaded Bead Caps. A jewelry making idea/tutorial going from good to great. Wonderful way to feature crystals within jewelry pieces. I think this is simply stunning.

Note: Technique not shared, no tutorial. These pieces are going into a contest, and hopefully after she wins the contest, she’ll share with us how to make these peacock inspired pendant caps.  I felt these are so beautiful, that the jewelry makers among us would be inspired by them, so I am showing them here, regardless of having no tutorial.

I have never even been to Oklahoma and to me it’s a dreamland from a song. However the tornado news today is anything but a dream but harsh reality for the folks in Oklahoma. May I inspire you to keep them in our hearts and minds. Here are some good ways to give, besides prayer and emotional support to those directly/indirectly involved:

  • Text FOOD to 32333 to donate $10 to the OKC food bank
  • Text REDCROSS to 90999 gives $10 to disaster relief
  • Text “STORM” to 80888 to make $10 donation thru Salvation Army
  • Give via the BGCO Disaster Relief Fund.
