i love january. it always feels so inspiring: the clean slate of a brand new year. september through december are madness for me, as they are for most handmakers, and the whole time i have to postpone everything i WANT to do until january. so, here we are, and i’ve got lots of plans to tell you about, but for the moment i just need to tell you that i’ve got some super fun new workshops going on over at creativebug! two spankin’ new ones debut this week, and the timing couldn’t be better: what else is there to do in january but whip yourself up a new batch of LEGGINGS?
today was the premiere of the Drafting Leggings Pattern Workshop, and on thursday you’ll have the complete set with Sewing Leggings. i just ordered myself some new woolly knits to play with, because at this time of year i wear leggings under everything, for an added layer of cozy. and even though we’ve still got lots of cold ahead, spring isn’t that far off, so a couple new pairs of cotton ones will allow you to jump into your favorite spring-y dresses that much sooner!
and in case you still haven’t investigated the amazingness that is creativebug yet, i’ve got a little promo code to get you $10 off a new subscription through january 31! it’s easy to remember: CALPATCH
and, if that’s not enough for you, my buddies over there are letting me give away a FREE MONTH of unlimited workshops! i mean, have you been keeping tabs on some of the recent additions to the superb list of teachers? so many of my craft crushes, like maya donenfeld! amy karol! gretchen hirsch! anna maria horner! and cathy callahan! all you gotta do is leave a comment on this post, describing your dream leggings, by midnight on sunday (1/6), and a winner will be randomly selected and announced on monday the 7th.
ok, i think that’s all the news for now. GO FORTH AND MAKE LEGGINGS!
