Fabrics selected? Interfacing options figured out? Hacks decided? Well let’s get going so!
This Stage 2 post of the PLANETARYsewalong will focus on prepping & cutting out your fabric, applying any interfacing and working as far as Step 4 of the Planetary Backpack tutorial.
I’m very excited to get this Planetary Sewalong up and running! I know it’s prime holiday time now as we enter August and engagement might not be high. Nonetheless I hope a few of you enjoy either sewing along with me as I go through the making of this Planetary Backpack, or at least get a bit of insight into my sewing process and perhaps a little inspiration?
Over the past (busy) while my go to special little gift to make has been these lovely fabric plant pot covers to go with a beautiful indoor plant. They are super fast to sew up and who doesn’t like a gorgeous plant as a gift? Even better when clothed in some special fabric and handmade with love.
It has been a fab SUNrise pattern release weekend. Thank you to everyone who took part; posting, hosting, sharing commenting and a few of you even won! Huge thank you to everyone who has bought the pattern and I can see that a few busy people have even sewn it up already!!
I’m thrilled to let you know that the SUNrise pouch pattern has been released and is available to purchase from my Etsy shop! The SUNrise pattern, along with all In Complete Stitches patterns are on sale with a 20% discount until the 8th June!!
A really quick post to give you a little sneak peek and to let you know that the SUNrise, the next pattern in the SUNseries, is nearly ready to go and will be released this Saturday, 5th June 2021!
I know I’m not so good at keeping in touch here on the blog, but I hope to change that and let you know about all the releases, testing calls, discounts and giveaways here! To start as I mean to go forward; you should keep an eye out for all the tester makes and giveaways over on Insta, starting on Thursday 3rd June!
The SUNrise is a versatile pouch pattern. It comes in two heights, cropped and tall, with LOTS of options. It has a simple modern aesthetic with a circular graphic forming a PiecedSUN, a Front Pocket SUNflap or a Fold Over SUNflap. It can be made as a simple pouch but offers lots of playful options and SUNhackability!
And because I know we all love a bit of matching, the SUNrise has of course been designed to sit neatly into a MidnightSUN bag.
To celebrate the release of the SUNrise pattern there will also be a store wide sale starting on Thursday 3rd June, along with the release giveaway fun!! OK, time for me to get back to the final pattern tweaks and tutorial adjustments!!
A super flexible pattern; the MidnightSUN can be made as a tote, shoulder or crossbody bag, with a snap, zipped or drawstring closure. It has a simple modern aesthetic with a large outer curved pocket to the front that is complimented by a curved internal pocket along with the option of a zipped welt pocket.
