Guest Post for Shorts on the Line!

Happy Friday!

This is a momentary break in our Christmas in July series to let you know I am guest posting on the blog Designs by Sessa today as part of the Shorts on the Line sew-along. Go check out the cute little shorts I made for Henry and read my pattern review.

Jenny: Shorts On The Line guest post

I am so excited to have made a clothing item, and it is wearable! And adorable! It is the boost I needed to my confidence. I might try to sew more clothing items in the future! Stay tuned... Big thanks to Rachael for inviting me to participate!

You can see the whole line up for the Shorts on the Line sew-along here. Go see all the fabulous shorts created by all the awesome guest posters! I'm so impressed. You can also visit the Flickr pool to see what the sew-along participants have made.

Are you participating? The list of judges and prizes is pretty ah-mazing, wow!

Stay tuned for more Christmas in July fun. Next week should be pretty jam packed with tutorials, another free download, inspiration, and more giveaways!

Meanwhile, our first free download from the book Pretty in Patchwork: Holidays is available here, and our first giveaway (a fat quarter bundle from Alewives Fabrics!) is open through Sunday -- you can enter here.

Have a great weekend!


  1. Great job Jenny, I love those little robot hiney pockets!!! And I bet Henry loves them, linen= so comfy!!!

    1. Thanks Jane! The linen really is so cozy, especially now that it's been washed and is all wrinkly. I love it. :)

  2. Hey, I was admiring those on him the other day! Good job!

    1. Thank you ma'am! I couldn't remember if I told you I made those. Means a lot coming from the queen of fashion design! ;) Over half the clothing articles I've ever attempted to sew had a horrible fit, so it's nice to make something actually wearable.

  3. I just love how these turned out! So cute!

    1. Thank you Vanessa! And thanks again for hosting my guest post. :)
