Anyone who knows me knows that I’m a tad obsessed with anything fox related. I even wrote a blogpost about it! So when I saw Amy from Sewn in the Attic‘s teaser photo I was VERY excited! To find out all about her inspiration and to see Amy’s embroidered Mr Fox in all his glory, be sure to read her blogpost here.

I first met Amy at the end of October last year at Sew Brum and I knew right away that I liked her! Living close to where I went to school, Amy and I were able to chat easily and it was nice to be able to talk about sewing (and the joys of a sewing room!) with someone like-minded. Amy has sewn herself the most amazing handmade wardrobe, including this gorgeous Colette Moneta Dress. Amy is the sole reason I have planned to make myself some knit dresses this year!

Further inspiration today comes from a beautifully illustrated Japanese children’s book, and Emi from Just Add Fabric interprets the watercolours with such sensitivity. For femininity, feathers and flair head over to Emi’s blogpost and marvel over some very pretty pictures!

I love scrolling through Emi’s Instagram feed and blog history. Honestly her Mori Dress from a couple of days ago just blew me away. Her fabric choice was simply stunning and tempted me to stray away from my favourite pastel shades! Another recent make which I need to share with you all is her tester version of the brand new pattern from Rock the Stitch: the Trinity tee. From the teal and cream colour scheme, to the most adorable bunting-clad woodland print, Emi’s version is perfect. Remember that this new pattern is part of the Giveaway 1 package!
