Male Pattern Boldness Day 2015 was soooo much fun. This is the second time I attended. I've been reading Peters blog for a couple years now and its great how he has helped to foster a community of like minded sewers. Its easy to get overwhelmed with every thing and not get the photos you want or thought you got. So I am posting a picture of Peter (creator of malepatternboldness.blogspot.com and host of MPB Day) and I from last year. Don't worry neither of us has aged a bit.
Here are some pictures of the event and items I purchased:
I got to NY a day early and walked around and made some fabric purchases, Ooooops. Here you have, from left to right, some wild faux fur, a stretchy jersey type fabric that is reversable, a really cool cotton Egyptian print material from a vendor at a street sale, and some very light weight fabric with flower print all over it from the same vendor. I've got a few ideas for these things so keep your eyes peeled.
vacuumingthelawn.blogspot.com HOW COOL IS THAT! she had the bag she made from her blog and was wearing a luscious jersey dress she me made. Also, she has inspired me to try out some sashiko by seeing how she has done some on her blog. That's sash-ko when you say it - drop that i, tee hee. Thanks for the inspiration Kyle. So look for some sashiko in a future project.
www.yousewgirl.blogspot.com she had on this jean/denim top she made that was to die for as well as her skirt and top. It makes me want to make something too. In fact everyone I talked with got me inspired and learned so much just by talking with everyone. I just wish I had been better at taking pictures and writing down blog info. I'll be better next time.
Here's to creativity and a fabulous sewing community of fun people. Thanks Peter for bringing it all together. Looking forward till next time : )
