peek-a-boo pattern shop review and giveaway!

i'd like to introduce you to something else i love- peek-a-boo pattern shop!  (psst - there's a special for my readers at the end!)
giveaway is now closed




in the last month, i've been lucky enough to test two patterns for amy.  amy makes amazing patterns - and she blogs over at naptime crafters too!  i asked her to tell me five things she loves, and here they are!

-Being a stay at home mom. LOVE spending time with my 2 year old girl and soon a baby boy will join the party:)
-Fabric: seriously cannot get enough of it
-Sports: not so much right now since I'm preggers but otherwise I love them all
-Pancakes:)
-Visiting my family: love them and love Seattle!

thanks amy!  so about those patterns.  i don't normally sew clothes.  i'm not great at it, i seem to choose the wrong type of fabric, or the wrong size - it's just never been my thing.  but i've felt bad about that.  our "baby" girl is seven now, and all i've ever made for her were a few skirts and pj pants.  i always dreamed i'd be making her boutique type outfits and matching hair bows and all that.

well, these patterns make it easy to get that look, even if you're new to sewing clothes!  they're very well written, and the best part is that if you did run into a problem, she's just an email away!




the first one i tested was the harper dress.  i used some anna maria horner chocolate lollipop fabric and some of my beloved yellow gingham with some brown mini dot for the binding.  isn't it adorable?!



the next pattern i tried was the sophia scalloped skirt.  i was really excited to try this, because when i was a girl, my nana made me a green gingham skirt that i adored.  and it had ties on each side where you could cinch it up, just like on this skirt!  i wanted something really girly so i chose a pink swiss dot fabric.  i used a cream cotton for the underskirt, edged with cotton crochet trim.  and some sheer ribbon for the ties. my ribbon was a smidge wider than the pattern called for, but it worked out.



here's a closer peek!  this was fast to put together too.  i can't wait to try another one!

and lucky for you guys, amy is offering up a giveaway - any three patterns from her shop!  i know what i would choose!
