Minerva Craft Blogger Network - My Sewing Plans for the Next 3 Months! Feb - April 
I can't believe I've already made 3 projects for the Minerva Craft Blogger Network! It's gone so quickly. I couldn't wait to sign up for another 3 months and like last time, I wanted to share my supplies with you so you can see what I'll be getting up to with my Minerva goodies over the next 3 months. And if you like what you see, you can pick up the supplies for yourself!


Not sure mine will be this glamorous, but fingers crossed!
With Winter in full swing in the UK, I wanted to make something weather appropriate, but also something simple whilst I'm busy working on Valentine's Day over at My Retro Closet. I'll be using this beautiful baby pink faux fur to create a classic Winter stole, or furry wrap around scarf thingy. I'll be drafting the pattern myself and writing a tutorial on this easy peasy make!


A classic tweed coat, perfect for a 60s loving pinup! (with a short sewing attention span...)
I've been wanting to make a coat or jacket for a while and I love the look of this Vogue pattern. The dress, very similar to the Tilly and the Buttons Martha dress, has a great 60s shape. But for March's make I'll be sewing the jacket in this stunning tweed fabric and fun polka dot lining. I also love how this tweed looks with the baby pink faux fur from February's make!


Pretty and practical!
This Butterick Patterns by Gertie slip pattern has been on my wish list for a while. Gertie's recently been posting some gorgeous versions she's made on Instagram so I had to choose it for an upcoming Minerva make! I chose a slinky and sheer red fabric with a coordinating lace trim for a sexy, pinup perfect retro slip!


I hope you're looking forward to these projects, I know I am! If you want to see my previous Minerva projects, check out my blog tag HERE.

Have you tried any of these patterns? Let me know what you think!
Thanks for reading, pinups.

P.S. I'm currently trying to post every Wednesday and Sunday, with the latter being a new pattern review. Let's see how long I can keep this up for! Eeek,
