Tribute Month round-up

blog button

It has been great fun hosting Tribute Month here on the Sewcialists blog with Inge. I’ve discovered lots of great new-to-me blogs and hope you all have been suitably inspired.

Gillian from Crafting a Rainbow made this fun stripey summer dress in tribute to Alessa of FarbenFreude….

and Alessa made a great maxi dress in tribute to Gillian!

 

Kirsty of Top Notch took inspiration from Oona of Oonaballoona, Julie of Jolies Bobines and Debbie of Lily Sage and Co to make this scuba jacket.

 

 

Alison at Another Little Crafty Creation (that’s me!) made an embroidered maxi-skirt inspired by Carolyn of Handmade By Carolyn.

Cari from Cari Homemaker made a classy work dress inspired by Carolyn from Diary of a Sewing Fanatic.

 

Gillian again with this tribute to Heather at Handmade by Heather B scoop neckline in this floral dress.

 

Gina of Feminist Stitch made an Oona inspired maxi-dress for Oonapalooza but didn’t post in time so she decided to call it a tribute instead.

 

If Gina is entering her belated Oonapalooza dress, then so am I! This was made during the month but not blogged in time for the big round ups.

 

Another timeless shift-dress and another tribute to Carolyn from Marrie at Purls and Pleats.

 

Jenny from Rennous Oh Glennus made a lovely Shibori scarf in tribute to  “Morgan [Crab and Bee] and her lovely shibori experiments, Melanie [Poppy Kettle] and her mad hand sewing & couture skills and Sophie [Ada Spragg] and her outdoor, DIY photo taking courage.” 

I’m going to finish with a quote from Jenny, which I think sums up the sewcialist spirit this month:

“So that’s [our] little tribute to not just 3 superstars, but every superstar.  You all continue to inspire [us] whether you know it or not…. and whether I know it or not! You push [us] to consciously as well as unconsciously try new things and develop new skills. Thanks all you SUPERSTARS, you!”
