Liebster blog Award

I am so excited to announce that  have received my very first blog award!  However, before I get into the details I have to apologize for my lack of posts.  The other buyer at my company moved onto a different opportunity leaving me as the only buyer, and I have been extremely busy at work and unfortunately it has taken over some of my home time too.  I do have some posts that I will be catching up on in the next week and some sewing to do! Now onto the Award details...

I received the Liebster Award from the Corina of Reverse Clothing. Corina's blogs is one of my favorites she writes about her reversible designs which she sells on Etsy, refashions for her entire family and super cute crafts (such as a decoupage trash can from pattern pieces).

And here is a custom order 1940's style suit that Corina made for me actually! I have been meaning to do a post about it - as I absolutely in love with it!

As part of accepting the award winners are require to spread the love among other bloggers whose blogs are new or small (less than 200 followers). By the way Liebster comes from the German word for beloved, dearest or favorite. 

Official Rules:
1. Link back to the person who gave it to you and thank them.

2. Post the award to your blog.
3. Give the award to 5 bloggers with less than 200 followers that you appreciate and value.
4. Leave a comment on the 5 blogs to let them know that they have been offered this award.

First up is Melissa from Craft Rambler, who started her blog just a few months ago but already has made and shared some of the cutest crafts and sewing projects!  Everything from elephant pincushions to the dress shown below.  She has such cute style and great attention to detail with embellishing - which is something I am really striving for with my creations.
Next up is Honeybee's Knees her blog posts are always a surprise everything from sewing projects, crafts, and photography.  Her photos and quick stories are awesome and we share a lot of the same interests.  Check out this super cute Icecream dress she made.

Next we have Lux per Diem which is another blog that contains sewing, fashion and photography.  What I really enjoy about Paige's blog is that she has a really modern aesthetic.

See below this cute drop cloth rug she made.

Next is Schildi's Welt whose blog is in German! (you can run it though Google translator and get the general concept of the posts even if the translator isn't 100% correct).  I really enjoy her blog, it is nice to see what someone else is doing on the other side of the world and that sewing and blogging unites many of us from such different backgrounds.  Please click on the link to her blog to see pictures of her work.

Lastly, I want to throw a special shout out to Lucky Lucille! I am absolutely in love with everything Rochelle makes!  And she also has an extra special Sewing Helper  (in the form of a pup) like me!

**Update - My apologies I can't figure out why some of my writing has the white background and the rest of it doesn't!


  1. I'm glad the suit worked out for you! So everything fit OK? I never know for sure until people let me know. I am pretty confident about sizing but when you can't be there in person to take measurements there is room for error you know? But I'm so glad you liked it!

    Great blogs, looks like I'll be adding more to my reading list..

  2. Aww thank you for the shout out, Jessica! xo

  3. These are all such great blogs! Thanks Jessica!

  4. Thanks for mentioning me! So sweet! :)
