Sew Liberated Explosion!

I have never been so excited about a blog post as I am today!
Back in July, I applied to be a pattern tester for Sew Liberated, an Indie paper pattern company.  Shockingly, I received an immediate response stating they would put me on the testers list AND asked if I would be interested in receiving a pattern to review.  Say WHA??? Little ol' me?  Speechless and YES!

Easy Beginner Blanket Tutorial

Who's tired of those damn no-sew tie blankets?  You and me both.
I find a clean finished blanket is much more professional.
And never mind that you loose 8 inches off the width and length of your fabric with the tied ends.

Willow & Co. Senna Tote

I am apart of the Pattern Revolution Willow & Co. pattern round up.
The other team contributors did an amazing job (and stunning photography).
Check out the entire post here on Pattern Revolution.
Willow & Co.'s theme is Wanderlust Glamping and I wanted my Senna to fit right in.
Flowers, snakes, bees, and foxes.  
The only thing missing at this camp out is poison ivy.
