Rowan Tee Pattern Tour: Day 5

November 14, 2014

I can’t believe that the first week of the tour is over already.

The first guest today is Kerry from Australia, who blogs at Sutures & Sandpaper. Kerry sews for two boys and a girl and has been so helpful as a tester. I love her minimal style and she has a knack for combining colours and prints. Kerry has sewn up quite a few Rowan Tees and her daughter is particularly fond of the kangaroo pocket. Today Kerry is sharing this perfectly summery short sleeve T-shirt – don’t the colours remind you of ice lollies?

Next up is Tara from Girl Like The Sea. Tara seems to pick the perfect combination of fabric, pattern and embellishment (like this amazing bee pinafore) every time. I really admire Tara’s talent and creativity and the way she shares this with her children. I love this Charley Harper art project they did (and how tiny is her son Hawthorne in that post!). If you can stop looking at that adorable face below then you will see that Tara has made an awesome hooded T-shirt, which she is talking about over here.

My last guest of the week is Brienne from Handmade by Brienne. When I read Brienne’s posts I really feel like I’m watching an artist at work – just look at this softie and all the accessories she made for it! I love the clothes she makes for her children and I’d be very happy to wear any of the things she sews for herself. If you love her work as much as me then make sure to check out her shop. When Brienne sent me this photo she told me the hood is her favourite part of the pattern, and I have to agree with her, so head over to Brienne’s blog to find out all the details of her T-shirt.

    Laura, your summary of my work made me cry a little! Thank you for taking the time to talk a little bit about each of us. I feel like I got a gift package – a free pattern and some put ups? You are the best.

      I’m so happy you liked it Brienne, I feel like I never quite get across what I want to say very well so it’s good you appreciate it. I loved your T-shirt and I think a sherpa lined hood might be needed over here soon as well.
