Looking for links to immerse yourself in this weekend? Here are a few:
- For those of us who never want to grow up, it's all about the Peter Pan collar. Here's a tutorial on how to convert an existing pointed collar on a shirt or dress to a Peter Pan one. Want to draft your own? The inimitable Gertie shows you how to here.
- Kristy at Lower Your Presser Foot offers her answer to the eternal question, how should I store all these patterns?!
- Don't forget the International Fabric Swap happening over at So Zo! The pretty pink flowered fabric pictured below -- all four yards of it! -- is up for trade. Email Zoe at at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, email, address, a picture of the stash fabric you're offering up and a short description of that fabric (width and length of fabric and fiber content if known). Mark the email 'FABRIC SWAP 6'. She'll select a recipient at midnight Sunday 11th April using a random number generator and inform the winner Monday morning, then post the next piece of fabric.
- Over at Threads, there's an Online Shopping and Resource Guide for notions and fabrics
- Meet the new Cabezas Belt over at BurdaStyle. Cute!
- Also at BurdaStyle: enter to win a copy of The Sewing Bible by answering the question, "What makes a sewing book great?" Deadline is Monday, April 12. Lemme tell you, it takes more than moody pictures of hipsters holding velvet pincushions to replace the staid-but-beloved Reader's Digest Guide to Sewing in my heart.
- What craziness is this? Pattern giveaways? Check one out over at Featherty Sews, where Heather is clearing out her pattern stash and giving patterns away. For Aussies only, check out Kaye's Blog for patterns that can be yours for the cost of postage.
- And now that you've saved all that money on patterns, splurge on some fabric. Over at True Up, they tell you Where to buy Liberty of London fabric.
- Threads subscribers: the marvelous Ann of Gorgeous Fabrics has an alert about a renewal scam by unauthorized agents.
