Yay!! It’s here! Today is the official kick-off of The Great Pattern Hack co-hosted by myself and Michael Miller Fabrics and we are starting off with such a great pattern hack! The inimitable Jess from The Sewing Rabbit loves bike rides with her husband so she pulled together an ingenious Skort DIY. She hacked a pair of BurdaStyle shorts in peacock Seedling fabric. Such a perfect, happy summer outfit idea and she stitched up an adorable little girls outfit to boot! Catch all the details (and bury yourself in amazingness) on her blog!
Are you a pattern hacker? Then, play along!
I hate when blog hops feel like a party I didn’t get invited to and I don’t want this one to feel that way to anyone! Do you tweak your patterns and stitch up magic just like Jess does? Then join in! Grab some Michael Miller fabric and show us your skills! Hack a pattern, any 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 .
No time to stitch something new? Leave a comment and tell me about your favorite pattern hacking experience. Let’s inspire each other, my fellow sewing ninjas!
There will be lots of giveaways —fabric and patterns!–throughout the hop so stay tuned! Tomorrow we get to see what Kait, the behind-the-scenes beauty at Making It Fun the Michael Miller blog has sewn up!
