Molly Loud Flowers

I got to use my new sewing machine this weekend. It was so nice to have such a great machine. If you didn't see my post about getting the new machine, you can read about it in the last post, it's a Janome Memory Craft 6600 Pro.

This is the last time I'm going to make Molly. This run-through was to refresh my memory so I could make final corrections to the pattern. I proofed the pattern this weekend, and now after making the pattern again, I know where I need to add a little more instruction. I'm going to get that done this week and hopefully next weekend I'll be able to get it packaged up to give away.

If you follow this blog I guess you figured out that I changed the name. I'm still on the blogger.com network but plan to move off to a Wordpress blog soon. I'm not sure what's involved and I'm praying it will be unnoticeable to my readers. When I figure it out, I'll keep notes so I can post about it, I'm sure some of you are wondering how to do that as well.

And since I got off topic talking about my blog, just so you know, I really hate the logo I'm using, it needs work. So if you hate it too, it's okay. LOL Hopefully you won't have to look at it for too long. It's top of my list - work on logo.

Anyway, I hope everyone had as good a weekend as I did. Look for Molly Loud Flowers on Etsy this week and the FREE pattern next. If you're interested in a Molly sew-along for National Sewing Month (September 1-30), let me know in the comments section. Oh, but wait, that means I'd have to make Molly again! That's okay, I think I might want to try her out in leather (now my machine will be able to handle it)! So, if you're up for it, so am I, just let me know.

Till later ~

Cute bag. I especially love the fabric. I would love it if you would stop by and share this at the crafty link party going on right now at Lines Across My Face.

Hi everyone, thanks for the nice notes.

Rachel, I posted at your party - you got some cute kids!

Lynda, I want to change to Wordpress probably because I've used it before and I like how you have so much more control over the way it looks and the way it's laid out. There are a ton of plug-ins you can use to do almost anything you want, even set-up e-commerce.

I'm hoping to build up the site to earn money by selling my patterns and I just think Wordpress will be a better fit for me in the long run.

I would be interested in a sew a long. I love your bag.
Also I am thinking of changing the name of my blog and am glad to see yours went so smoothly.

Hi all,

I thought I'd comment on this post so anyone getting email updates will know that the PDF pattern for Molly is now available for free. Just sign-up in the side-bar. Also, I just bought fabric to make one more Molly - I'm going to do a sew-along to commemorate National Sewing Month in September. Watch for a post tomorrow or Wednesday with the schedule.
