What I’m Lovin’ in February

Just a day late this time 😉

Keep reading to hear all about what I loved in February!

1. These things we should say to new mothers as they leave the hospital

This was such a sweet read. It brought back lots relatable feelings.


If you know a soon-to-be-mom or a new-mom, share this post with them.

 2. My post for Maternity Sewing

I wrote a piece for Maternity Sewing a few months ago about how sewing prepared me for motherhood. You can read it here.

My sister is wearing the Canny tunic I made ages ago in the first picture of the post which makes me smile. The interior of the tunic is embarrassing with jagged-edged-fabric but we have passed it back-and-forth and shown it lots of love over the years.

 3. The Taos Top Pattern from Threadbear Garments

Leslie just released her first pattern and it’s dynamite! The seam lines are so flattering and I love the cowl neck option.


I’ve been following Leslie for a few years – we were part of a pattern testing group at one point. It has been so fun watching her explode onto the sewing scene! She’s so so nice and always supportive. I already snagged a copy of the Taos Top and am hoping to make one for summer!

4. These 24 Children’s Books To Read To Your Kids In Honor Of Black History Month

Andy has a few of these books already – our favorites: Little Leaders: Bold Women in Black History and Last Stop on Market Street (this is the sweetest story! We read it over-and-over-and-over while I was on maternity leave).

I reserved several of the others from our local library so we could check them out this month!


See the full list here.

5. The Story of these Butterfly Dresses

I really enjoyed the sweet story of these butterfly dresses. Fabric can become something so special when you pour love into the project – especially when it spans generations.

 6. This patchwork Wiksten Haori

Petite Republic made her Wiksten Haori out of upcycled jeans! It’s gorgeous.


PS: I recently finished my own Wiksten Haori made entirely from stash fabric! Don’t worry, I’ll blog about it soon 😉

 7. Why you don’t have to enjoy cooking

I really enjoyed this post by Anne for Folk Rebellion – it made me feel justified about the fact that cooking isn’t “my thing.”


Read the post here.

 8. Free Patterns!

Don’t we all love a good freebie?! Sewstainability compiled a comprehensive list of free sewing patterns.


What an amazing resource!

What have you been lovin’ this month? Let me know in the comments so I can jump on your bandwagon!

My name is Jordan. I'm a full-time working mom whose coffee cup is always half full (and probably still in the microwave). I've got a weak spot for rescuing old dogs, pretending pizza is a vegetable, negotiating dessert with every meal, propagating more plants than any home needs, dreaming of sewing projects while my husband is talking to me, and loving my tribe too deep.
