Welcome to my stop on the microMod His & Hers Sew-Along! I was so excited when Alexia asked me to be a part of this tour. I love microMod and had been hoping to get my hands on this versatile collection!
Before I show you what I made, here's a little Q&A, Newlywed Game style with Alexia and Rob. These two are a successful couple, so I wanted to know what they thought was their spouse's biggest accomplishment.
Rob: Alexia's biggest recent accomplishment is writing the book, something she did at the same time as we were buying a house and moving!
Alexia: My biggest accomplishment is starting our pattern & design company with Rob and my mom, Michelle! It is something that was a dream for so long, and we just stuck with it and did all that we could to make it happen.
Alexia: Rob's biggest accomplishment is our house...we bought a 20's era fixer-upper last year and have been working on it since! He has done SO much to the house, all while having his first fabric line!
Rob: My biggest accomplishment is wooing Alexia!
Okay Rob, that is pretty much the sweetest answer! I think you win this round! :)
Now, onto the sewing! I had been looking for an excuse to make the Around Town Tote from Alexia's book, Liberty Love, and it made perfect sense to combine it with microMod for this project.
For the guy version, I decreased the size of the stripes to fit my husband's Macbook Air. I added a flap with magnetic snaps to close it. The blue stripes are Micromod Seaweed in Teal, and the gray is more yard dyed Essex linen.
Now for the giveaway! Alexia, Rob, and Cloud 9 are offering one of you a fat quarter bundle of microMod, and the Lots of Dots quilt pattern from the Green Bee Pattern shop!
Update: Congrats to our winner, The Bumble Girl! Thanks to everyone who entered!
Make sure to stop by the rest of the stops for more microMod sewing inspiration and giveaways, and at the end there is an amazing grand prize. You could win a fat quarter stack of microMod by Rob Bancroft from Cloud9 fabrics, the entire Green Bee Patterns collection, a microMod sewing bag, and a Singer Heavy Duty Sewing Machine! (US only for the grand prize).
