Featured Artist: Dana from Made

Let me introduce you to Dana, from Made blog. The first time I came across to Dana's blog was through google search for diaper cover tutorial. When I first saw her blog, I knew that this is going to be my usual every day to-go-to blog. Oh! And our daughter's name is Lucy! :)

What's so special about Made blog for me is that, her blog really inspires me to start sewing. I have had interest in sewing in a while, but I have been so hesitant to begin/start sewing. My first sewing project was inspired by her step by step simple skirt tutorial, which I posted in Fashionita, a post for Raining Umbrella's assignment this Summer - a skirt for my daughter, which I also ended up making one too for my sister's daughter.

Dana made sewing so simple and easy for a beginner like me. It's a pleasure for me to present you this week's artist.

I like how Dana put it in her own words the goal of her blog that is to share ideas and to help the sewer of any skill-level realize that they can sew without a store-bought pattern (Hey- that's me!)

Here are my favorite tutorial that she has done in the past, that makes me want to sew.

Oh! I've also made this ruffle streamers for my friend's bridal shower! They look so fantastic! I got so many compliments on them. Ruffled Streamers

Isn't that fun. Dana also sponsored our Monday Summer Facebook Giveaway: Two Free Beach Robe Pattern from Made. Make sure you enter that giveaway to win a FREE PDF of her new pattern!

Recently she also did a Design My Header contest. Make sure to follow her blog, her posts never disappoints me! :)

Live, Love, and Be Creative,
