YOU & mie

I’m baaaaaack!

I went almost an entire month without sewing – CAN YOU BELIEVE IT!?

Summer vacation is officially over and the craziness of back-to-school is upon us.  I had such an amazing summer break and I’ve loved all the time I spent with my family, but a part of me (a small part) is looking forward to the regular schedule of the school year.  Already in the last week I knocked a good 4 projects off my to do list.  Feels gooooood!

I have so many things to catch up on, so over the next few weeks, you’ll probably see a mix of older projects that I never got a chance to post here and current/new projects.  A little bit of late summer and fall mixed together.  I hope you don’t mind.

But while I get myself organized and back in the game, I thought I’d take a moment to share some of the fun creations that have been popping up in the you & mie flickr pool.  If you’ve ever used a tutorial from this blog, or have been inspired to try out a project you’ve seen here, I’d love to see what you’ve made.  Sign up for a free flickr account and add it to the pool!  Every so often I’ll feature some of your awesome creations here.

So thank you to this first group of ladies for sharing pictures of their work.  It makes me soooo happy to see people actually using my tutorials.  Makes the time and work worth it!!
First, there are a few Summer Breeze Tops:

GolfingJulie made this adorable yellow top for her toddler.

037Carol made FOUR tops for her granddaughters for the 4th of July.  She said the pleated placket reminded her of the US flag – how creative is that??

And Tina made this top for herself, adding bust and back darts for a fitted women’s top!

Next there are a couple of Asymmetrical Circle Tops:

044Eleanor made this adorable citrus-y circle top . . .

And lastly we have a few circle skirts from the Reversible Circle Skirt tutorial and these were all created by Mary Jo of All This For Them!

First is a reversible skirt, with the cloud applique on one side and Dora on the other.  My daughter would love this!

A HUGE thank you to these ladies for letting me share their beautiful work with you!  I really do love to see what you guys come up with, so don’t forget to add photos of your you & mie inspired projects to the pool too!

Hope you all have been doing well.  Can’t wait to catch up with you!
