{Blogs I Love} Sew A Fine Seam

Posted on August 2,2012 by Jennifer

Sew A Fine Seam blog logoToday I’d like to introduce you to Jill Flory the creative fingers and “one who sews” (love her self appointed title!) behind the sweet blog Sew a Fine Seam and her etsy shop filled with charming hand made goodness. Jill discovered my blog via Miss Mustard Seed and I discovered Jill because she began commenting on my blog (see commenting matters!). I clicked over and was so pleased to find handy tutorials, a great “can do” attitude and lots of “pretties” in her shop.

My favorite recent project of hers was of course these Union Jack pillows… come on, you know how much I love the that! She also shares the ribbon source in the post – which is a great find by the way – since I have a huge ribbon stash, I’m anxious to try this project myself!

pretty picnic lunch with pasta salad in a jar, sew a fine seamI also thought this picnic lunch post was super cute! I love those jars and totally want to buy some! A friend of Jill’s made this before they went on a fun flea market shopping trip! What a perfect “ladies lunch on-the-go”. So much thought and care went into them – as a girl who wants to “celebrate everyday life” you know this picnic gets gold stars in my book!

hand stamped and sewn key fobs from Sew a Fine Seam etsy shopI adore these handmade key fobs from her etsy shop! They are stamped with Cavallini stamps (another favorite of mine!) and trimmed with a delightful black pleated satin ribbon which I am a huge fan of! As the holidays are drawing nearer I think these would make great gifts especially since they are so affordable! I love the one with Paris stamp and butterfly – adorable!

camera strap from sew a fine seam etsy shopHow charming is this custom camera strap? Being bitten by the photo bug as I have been I have to say I really love this item! I think our friend Breida with B. has one of these! Jill will also customize this with your initial too – super cute!

cotton banner from Sew a Fine Seam etsy shopHow precious is this cotton banner? Perfect for a little girls room or for a party backdrop – love it! And the price is fantastic. Could I make it myself? Sure, but at this price would I really need to? Seriously – check out her shop!

Thank you so much Jill for sharing your creative talent on your blog and in your etsy shop! It’s a pleasure to be on this blog journey with you!

I hope you visit Jill and please tell her I sent you!

Happy Celebrating!

    I love this post, because I love Sew a Fine Seam. I’m blessed to have Jill as my sister! I love her stuff, but I could be a bit biased… So excited that you highlighted her bog and etsy!
