The Great Pattern Hack :: Sanae Ishida

The Great Pattern Hack  Sanae Ishida

I am not going to lie, I have a total girl-crush on Sanae Ishida.  She always manages to pull together simple, elegant and wearable clothing for herself and her fantastic daughter. On top of that she has such an honest, genuine voice that I’m always giddy and excited to read her blog. Plus, she a children’s book author and illustrator!  I mean, honestly, she’s like a magic unicorn. Suffice it to say, I was thrilled when she joined the Great Pattern Hack and her pattern hack is just as magical as she is.  {Plus, she noticed an M in the back of her top and it made her think of me and Michael Miller.  Catch me! I’m a teenager at a Justin Bieber concert!}

Check out how she transformed the Southport Dress from True Bias Patterns into a romper and scrappy back top using Cotton Couture and Indigo fabric! Oh, all these rompers! They look so fantastic on everyone. I used to think (with great confidence) that I couldn’t wear a romper but I’m so tempted to stitch one up now!

Are you a pattern hacker!?!
Did you know we are collecting all of the pattern hacks on a Pinterest board created by Michael Miller? Go now.  Look at all the awesome and just try not to feel the itch.  Gotta hack all the things!

If you are a pattern hacker, you should really play along with us!  Hint, hint…there might just be some great things waiting for all the play-at-home pattern hackers.  Intrigued?  Grab some Michael Miller fabric and show off what you made so you can play too!  Hack a pattern and share your creation on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.  Make sure to tag your photos so we can find you– @michaelmillerfabrics and @ahappystitch and use the hashtags #GreatPatternHack #MichaelMillerFabrics #AHappyStitch.

It’s been so fun to see your creations so far! Keep ’em coming. There will be even more giveaways throughout the hop—fabric and patterns! Stay tuned for tomorrow when Erin shows off a fantastic bag!
