Flying Geese Beaded Cuff "IndyWatch Feed Craft"

One of the best late-summer affirmations: the happy honks of determined geese soaring south in perfect V-formation. We like to think our Flying Geese Beaded Cuffs answer that call: bold and beautiful, ancient-slash-modern arrows pointing in a dont-look-back direction.

The motif spans centuries, from migrating birds to classic quilts, and now weve reinterpreted it to span your wrist as well! All you need to make this Cuff your own is our Flying Geese Beaded Cuff Kit, plus our super simple Bead Loom. Each Kit includes step-by-step instructions, three tubes of exquisite Japanese-sourced Miyuki Delica Beads, and a full set of all the little notions youll need to weave one very special bracelet.

Choose from nine color combos, from minimal graphic impact (Iron, far left) and sky-blue skies (Bluebird, third from left) to 70s-sunset chic (Goldenrod, fourth from right) and autumn campfire glow (Molasses, far right). Youll find that, no matter the colors and not unlike those birds observed, geometries and colors shift to create a delightful optical play.

The finished effect is of highly expert handiwork, but the actual techniques for making these Cuffs are accessible even to first timers. Look overhead, but look down, too, at the one-of-a-kind creation wrapped around your wrist both inspiring beacons of beauty!

sewing: chambray key largo top "IndyWatch Feed Craft"

Post written by Rachael Anne Allison of @RachaelAnneSews

My new favorite shirt is absolutely this Chambray Key Largo Top!

After stitching it up a few weeks ago, Ive done about 4 loads of laundry because Im always reaching for this shirt! The Key Largo top by Hey June Handmade is just perfect in this gorgeous Robert Kauffman Chambray Union Indigo Dot fabric. Its amazing.

The fabric: Chambray Union Indigo Dot

Right now in Texas, were in the middle of my least favorite parts of the year: the middle of summer. Im constantly looking for the perfect sewing pattern that will keep me cool. And while I wear dresses nearly every day to combat the heat, some occasions call for separates. MMMay taught me hat my closet was desperately lacking in this department, so Ive been hunting for just the right pattern/fabric combo.

And let me tell you friendsthis.is.it.

The chambray union indigo dot is feather light. Seriously, it almost feels like double gauze, (although it isnt), and its so lightweight that its been my go-to shirt for summer.

It feels like it just FLOATS on me. Like Im not wearing it so much as I am just using it for covering. But it completely opaque,

I want to get more of this fabric to make dresses and a few more tops, because its just a delight to sew with and to wear.

I used a non-self bias tape (still handmade though), for the neckline in this top, because I worried that it would be a little too lightweight for bias tape. Id also recommend you take off any big rings when working with this, because its easy to catch the threads on the back of the fabric. Although I did catch it a few times, I havent noticed any snags.

And did you notice the super subtle pattern change on the bias cut front pieces of this top? *swoon* It makes such a lovely touch, and t...

Can a midsummer forest trail bike ride compare to Hawaii? (with video) "IndyWatch Feed Craft"

bike on the Vedder River rotary trail during summerTheres this advertised app that comes up every so often when I scroll my Instagram feed called Calm.

It's hot here, but that hasn't stopped us from getting these super yummy donuts from Pip's, which I normally wouldn't consider a hot weather treat. We also tried Tiki Tea for the first time and it was delicious. I'm still off sugar, so they made my tea without (not shown) and i just stared at the donuts. It was okay. The girls ate them pretty fast.

It's convention season! We just got back from Leaky 2018 (Harry Potter fan convention) and are heading to the Resin Rose BJD Expo this weekend, which is in town. This is a doll show with a focus on ball-jointed dolls, which is thing. Leaky was so fun, in was in Dallas and it was a whirlwind trip. The fans there were so nice and overall it was a great time. We went to 5 panels and heard so many great theories and wonderful presentations and some really funny stories. We are going again next year for sure. There are some photos over on IG. I haven't been to the Resin Rose BJD show before. It's all me on this one, the girls aren't really into dolls, but I think my eldest will come with me to keep me in check.
