Visiting with The Cottage Mama

Blogging has afforded me the opportunity to meet so many great people including several amazing new designers/bloggers.  One such person that I think most of you may know already is Lindsay Wilkes, aka The Cottage Mama.

When I first discovered Lindsay's blog, I fell in love with the beautiful outfits she was making, and when she first began selling paper patterns, I bought The Janey Jumper right away (absolutely great pattern)! Here's the post on the first Janey Jumper I made.

Since then, Lindsay's brand, blog, and pattern collection have grown immensely, and I was fortunate enough along the way to be a very small part of it.  Several months ago, I tested one of her latest amazing patterns, The Matilda Dress and Top, and I got the opportunity to meet Lindsay in person and have dinner with her.  So much fun!

Here's my post on my Miss Matilda Dress.

All this brings me to today where I can proudly say that I'm a guest contributor at Lindsay's blog, The Cottage Mama.  Please come visit me there and check out my tutorial on how to use up some of the decorative trims in your stash drawer!

Oh, and I'd love it if you'd leave a comment over there letting me and Lindsay know what you think about my project!

Have a great day, and have fun sewing!

    1. Thanks for bringing that to my attention, Edith! I've updated it, so it should work now. Also, were you aware that you are a "no-reply blogger"? I wasn't able to email you back directly since there is no email address associated with your Google username, so I hope you see my reply! I appreciate you stopping by and reading my post!

  3. Ahhhhh, I JUST saw this and I don't think I ever saw that picture of the Janey Jumper. It looks so cute on her!! Thank you so much for guest blogging for me........your tutorial was great!


Please feel free to leave a comment! I love reading what you think about my post!
