Happy First Day of May! How did we get here so fast? I know that Me-Made-May 2015 has started today. I didn't officially join up but I think I will play along on the sidelines. It will be really fun to see all the me-mades! I wonder if pattern and fabric sales have traditionally had a spike for the months of May and June as a result of this wonderful event.
So, for me, I will start with a recent new made, the Maya from the talented Marilla Walker. I started off with the basic, simple top using remnants that I had.
I love the Maya! It is so cute and comfy. I cut out a size 6 according to the chart. I had to take in the sides a lot (an inch each side) as it was too wide but now it's just grand. I plan to try a longer sleeve version as well as the button up version too. I also like the stitched down facing even if my first attempt at top-stitching was a bit wonky at places. Thanks, Marilla, for a really nice design!
Another reason I am so happy today is that this morning my intrepid postman brought me this...
Miss Matatabi. She does such a lovely job of wrapping your purchases. It feels really special, like a gift. Inside, here's what I bought. Two Nani Iro 2015 on the right (gorgeous blues!), and two Japanese cotton plaids on the left. I saw the latter recently and wanted to try new things (plaids) and thought I might use at least one for the Maya. We shall see.
Have a lovely weekend!
