New York, New Yo...






miss mena trott, sewist extraordinaire and all around rocking gal, asked me to contribute to her amazing site, the sew weekly. i think she may have heard me scream “YES” from across the country. her idea: take a bad situation and oonafy it!

lady katza provided the first oona does it! challenge: during my vacation, i wrote a cryptic update here at burdastyle: a peacock is watching me sew. lady latza quickly responded: that peacock wants you to use its feathers.

and the challenge was ON. read more about my adventures with a rowdy feathered thing at the sew weekly: oona’s bird brain

and… if you have a challenge for me, drop a line over at the post!
