    Sb1_listing

    This is the blouse I made with the Sassy Librarian Blouse course on Craftsy. I had quite an ordeal with the pattern and fitting, since I had to grade it up AND do an FBA, neither of which I had don…

    Scary Merry commented on the project Girl Power Bag

    Scary Merry added the project Girl Power Bag
    1_listing

    This is a backpack I made using a tutorial originally written in Russian and sloppily translated by Google. I might make an English language tutorial now that I’ve made the bag. We’ll see.

    Scary Merry added the project Twirly Macaron
    Photo_on_11-24-12_at_2_14_am_3_listing

    I love swishy dresses and I’m somewhat obsessed with Colette’s Macaron pattern, so I made a swishy Macaron. I went for a skirt/shirt look, rather than the faux-strapless look, and this was my first…

    Scary Merry commented on the article After Hours: 9 New Plus Size Patterns

    Scary Merry commented on the project Gertie's Coat!

    My new coat made from the Butterick 5824 pattern by Gretchen Hirsch! Not including the muslins I did, I made it in about 2.5 days because I was bored, needed a warm coat, and I’m apparently a one w…
