Sew Pretty for Little Girls Blog Hop & Giveaway

****This giveaway is now over****


I'm so excited to be here today as part of the Little Lady Liberty Blog Hop to celebrate the release of Alice Caroline's book Sew Pretty for Little Girls (ebook version) (called Little Lady Liberty for UK peeps).  When Alice asked if I wanted to take part, yes couldn't come out of my mouth fast enough.  Aside from the book being chocked full of 20 beautiful projects for little girls, its dripping in Liberty fabric eye candy!


The book is divided into three sections, Blissfull Bedrooms, Twirly Girly Garments and Pretty Little Things.  It was almost impossible to pick just one project to make but ultimately I decided on the Fleur Embellished Party Skirt, because Nora definitely cannot have too many skirts in her closet.


I chose a Cotton + Steel lawn print to get a similar drape and hand as the Liberty fabrics shown in Alice's book, and I cannot be happier with how it turned out.  I altered the length of the skirt slightly as the book shows cutting measurements for average size for a 6-7 year old girl, but the size customization tips in the pattern worked like a charm.  Nora gives her seal of approval too!



I have fabric purchased to make the Libby Ra-Ra skirt next, now just to find a few minutes to put it together!

Now for the giveaway!  Stitch Craft Create is giving one lucky SewCraftyJess reader an ebook version of Sew Pretty for Little Girls!  Enter the rafflecopter giveaway below for your chance to win, winner will be announced here at SewCraftyJess on Tuesday, March 24, 2015.

  29. It is no secret that I have a very deep and personal relationship with God. I have pushed and resisted that relationship this past year through all the bullshit I have had to go through living with Herpes but once again, God is bigger than my stubbornness and broke through that outbreak cold sore and all I had Genital Herpes. For me personally, hearing over and over how I am not good enough has really invaded my mind in the worst way possible. I completely shut down and I was just waking up like is this how life going to end this temporary herpes outbreak “fuck everybody with herpes if you know what I mean” but let's be honest here...
    It is a cowardly to say no to herbal medicine. It is fear based. And it is dishonest to what my heart wants. Don't build a wall around yourself because you are afraid of herbals made or taking a bold step especially when it's come to health issues and getting cure. So many young men/ women tell me over and over that Dr Itua is going to scam me but I give him a try to today I feel like no one will ever convince me about herbal medicine I accept Dr Itua herbal medicine because it's cure my herpes just two weeks of drinking it and i have been living for a year and months now I experience outbreak no more, You can contact him if you need his herbal medicine for any such diseases like, Herpes, Schizophrenia,Cancer,Scoliosis,Fibromyalgia,Fluoroquinolone Toxicity Syndrome Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva.Fatal Familial Insomnia Factor V Leiden Mutation ,Epilepsy Dupuytren's disease,Desmoplastic,Diabetes ,Coeliac disease,Creutzfeldt–Jakob,,Lyme Disease,Epilepsy, ,ALS,Hepatitis,Copd,Parkinson disease.Genetic disease,Fibrodysplasia disease,Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Men/Woman infertility, bowel disease ,Huntington's disease ,Diabetes,Fibroid. disease,Lupus,Lipoid Storage diseases( Gauchers disease),Polycystic Disease.,Cerebral Amyloid Angiopathy, Ataxia,Cirrhosis of Liver,Arthritis,Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis,Alzheimer's disease,Adrenocortical carcinoma.Asthma,Allergic,HIV, Epilepsy, Infertility, Love Spell,. Email..drituaherbalcenter@gmail.com then what's app.+2348149277967.... My advice to any sick men/women out there is simple... Be Always an open book. Be gut wrenching honest about yourself, your situation, and what you are all about. Don't hold anything back. Holding back will get you nowhere...maybe a one way ticket to lonelyville and that is NOT somewhere you want to be. So my final truth...and I'm just starting to grasp this one..

  30. Gorgeous Collection of Fabrics. I just love it.. I found some excellent fabrics from Fabrics World USA in NYC near me which was a nice weight, not too beefy.
    Stretch Sequins
    Glitter Stone
