Shine Many Ways Bianca Top

nani IRO month is going on strong around blogland and you can follow all the stops on the Miss Matatabi blog.  The projects have all been SO AMAZING.  I love seeing how each person has been using the already gorgeous fabrics to create such unique garments (and an amazing blanket).

Today, I’m sharing another top I made for myself as part of the Miss Matatabi Makers series.  I used the Shine Many Ways – A print in sateen.   Check it out here.

Sidekick Mini Mini Suitcase

I’m posting over at Miss Matatabi today with my May Miss Matatabi Makers project.  Errr . . . let’s pretend it’s still May, ok?

Mini Mini Spring Patch Suitcase // you & mie

I made a MINI Sidekick Mini Suitcase with this adorable Nesshome Cheater Patch fabric.  It was no small feat and I thought I might never finish, but a few nights worth of hard work and I’m reeeally quite happy with how it came out.  The inside of the case is lined with some super soft double gauze too.  Go and check out all the details and plenty more pics at Miss Matatabi!

Miss Matatabi Makers and a Big Bow Washi Dress

It’s no secret that Miss Matatabi is one of my favorite online sources for fabric, especially Japanese fabrics like Nani Iro.  Frances always has an amazing selection of high quality fabrics and she’s a total sweetheart on top of all that.  So I am really excited to announce that I get to be one of the regular contributors on her site, sewing up a new project every month with some fabulous fabric from her shop, along with 3 suuuper awesome ladies!

We’re the Miss Matatabi Makers and you can read all about us here.
