Because You're Awesome.

So since you are all exceptionally awesome for being 100 in quantity (and 1 bazillion in quality :), I wanted to extend a big ol' thank you!

I have prezzies for you!

You may have noticed around here that I am a fan of crazybananas for Mama Stellato.
See the three tops I've made from her Charlotte Dress pattern alone:

No post.  Made this pre-blog.  It's like, the second thing I ever made!  :D


If those old crummy pics didn't already give it away, I sewed these precious (if I do say so ;) tops when I was completely new to sewing.  The first one took just one evening, and the others took even less time - couple of hours at most.

If you are a beginning sewista, or are thinking you want to start sewing (YES!), Mama Stellato Patterns are perfect!  The intructions are crystal clear, there are no fancy requirements like a serger, the size range is wicked expansive [meaning buy a pattern once and sew it 400 times as your babe grows], and the styles are SO CUTE!

And all of you seasoned seamstresses, take a look at these and imagine all the possibilities!

Somerset Hoodie

Charlotte Dress
Bella Dress

Amelia Top


So getting to the point. Rachel of Mama Stellato is so kindly offering all of you 
30% off your entire order!

Enter Coupon Code EMMYLOU30 like so:

* This offer is good Saturday and Sunday (5/21 and 5/22) only! *

Yay!  I hope you are all able to take advantage of this offer!

What's that you say?  Not sure what fabric to use for your new Mama Stellato pattern??
Would a yard of Heather Bailey Rose Bouquet in Emerald help you decide?!

Yeah, I have it.  You want it?
I've got one prewashed yard of this deliciousness. [See this fabric in action in Peach HERE]
If you'd like to have it in your possession to drool over, keep reading!!

BUT!  That's sooo not all!  I'm also giving away a Summer Pattern Pack!  Check it peeps:

Click pic to see the sizes better.
I'm a 12/14 in patterns... Is there a worse size to be as far as purchasing?!  Jeebs!

Want to sew for yourself this Summer?  Yeah, me too! :)

Seeing as how I have 8 thousand patterns, and am still loading everything into PatternFile, I sometimes buy duplicates, or patterns that are ridiculously similar to patterns I already have.  Boo for me.  Yay for you.

Enter these three patterns:  Simplicity 2245 (Lisette), New Look 0692 (OOP), and Simplicity 2599.
All three fabulous - all three I already haaaave!  Gah!  Seriously, I'm like a tornado at the JoAnns sales.  I take my list'o'patterns in there and scoop up all my patterns [proudface], not realizing that I did the same thing two weeks ago, and didn't cross any patterns off my list.  Hot.  Mess.
Want 3 cute patterns?  Ok!  You got'm!

If I haven't twisted your arm enough to git to sewing (what friggin' gives?!), I have something else for you.
Do you craft?  If you're here, I assume you're a creative type, yes?
Do you like Michaels?

Do you want a $25 Michaels Gift Card?

So, in all seriousness, I love you.  I love this blog!
It is what it is because of my dear friends and readers.  I work 40+ hours a week, I have a toddler, and I have a disease I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy, so I am always wishing for more time to blog.  But more importantly, and I know yall can relate, I wish for more time to create.  That's why we're all blogging in the first place, isn't it?  To have an outlet for sharing and receiving encouragement.  In the short time I've been at this, you guys have been so supportive, and I want to thank you.  So thank you :)

Aaaand back to the fun!
