Earlier this week, I also tried out a sewing pattern I won during Celebrate Color. This is the Shearwater Kaftan pattern by Make it Perfect, and I shared a little more about the process of making it over at Craft Buds earlier this week.
I'm going to make this shirt again in a looser fabric, but I first tried it out a lightweight poplin I got on clearance at Fabric.com. And sometime this year, I'm hoping to make the Honey Blouse.
Thanks for letting me share! I'm very thankful for this season of life, and thankful for all of you. Reading a friend's blog, I was recently reminded of the very reality of life's ups and downs. Our lives may not always be perfect, or we may be going through a downright horrible season.
In the midst of whatever you are feeling today, whether that's tired, joyful or many things in between, I hope you are encouraged by the ability to create. To create a quilt, a block, a pillow. A moment. A memory. We are all creators, and I am very thankful to be a part of this community of such caring and wonderful people.
