The Hummingbird (and Cabarita) patterns will be shipping next week, so in preparation I made a few new additions to the sewingcake site:
Here you’ll find the schedule, blog badge codes and other info.
This is the Flickr group for the Hummingbird Sewalong. In the past it’s been a great way to share progress and sewing tips, and it’s always fun to sneak a peek into someone else’s sewing room. We’ll also use the Flickr group for fitting.
It’s a little spacious at the moment, but I set up the Community Gallery page so it will fill as we sew along together. I really like the Community Gallery pages, and if you have a Pavlova Separate or Tiramisu Dress you’d like me to add to those Community Gallery pages, just let me know. I try to keep up, but I definitely miss some here and there.
I made this Visual Reference Guide before the last sewalong at your request. It’s still there, and even though Flickr has undergone a bit of a change since then it should still be helpful in advance of the Sewalong.
The 30 Minutes A Day Sewalongs are written with beginners in mind, and I have a growing database of beginner’s lessons to help you achieve a nicely sewn garment even as a beginner. I’m open to requests and suggestions, so if you see something missing from the schedule or would like to know more about a technique or equipment, let me know and I’ll work it in.
While we’re on the topic of sewingcake.com, I made a new section. It’s “Fresh Cake,” which is a page that shows posts/pages in chronological order at a glance for easy browsing. Each day’s sewalong lesson will show up here once it’s published, I’ll tweet and pin and also update the links on the main page. I hope this is all smooth and straightforward, do let me know if you have any questions!
Next week, I’ll introduce you to the new Visual Reference Guides for cutting variations and denim sewing. It’ll be fun, I’ve been waiting and waiting to share them with you! Have a great weekend!
(…if you have a blog and you’re interested in test-sewing, please leave me a comment on the Muses Post from yesterday. I’ll be reading up and checking out blogs over the coming week, and will email the testers with guidelines next Friday.)
