Busy fabric-printing mamas sometimes get behind on their blog reading and blog posting, which is why I'm only just now finding a spare minute to post about Diane Gilleland's tutorial on mending a shirt with reverse appliqued scraps of fabric. The effect is so pretty on her polo pictured, and doesn't use much fabric at all. Perhaps you've got a lonely Spoonflower swatch and a garment in need of some patchy love lying around? Diane's tutorial was part of Craft magazine's March Mending Month which–ahem–I confess that I learned about far too late because of aforementioned fabric-printing madness around here lately. There's still one more day of March left though, right? Right? Sigh. We'll be caught up and current around here again one of these days, I just know it!
Speaking of things being current–or not–many of you no doubt noticed that the fabric of the week contest announcement was mysteriously absent last week. I'll save the official announcement of the winning design for Stephen, himself a very busy fabric-printing papa. But we had a whole lot of votes and, I think, a whole lot of excitement about last week's contenders. I hope you're all as excited about the week's winner as I am!
