Hi everyone! This #sewfrosting challenge
has been a wild ride! I never expected it would take off quite as it has, and Kelli and I were positively overwhelmed when it came time to pick our winners. At last glance, our hashtag had reached over 1900 entries, and we were completely blown away by your creativity and skill. It's been so exciting to see what your clever hands came up with, and we've all been feeling super inspired and more deeply in love with our community than ever.
So without further ado, let's get to the winners!!
UNCONVENTIONAL MATERIALS (HIGHLIGHTS)
Hi there. Amy here, just popping in to talk about velvet. As George Costanza admitted, "I would drape myself in velvet if it were socially acceptable." Me too George, me too. As holiday season approaches we are seeing that not only is it socially acceptable to drape yourself in velvet but also it might be the official YEAR OF THE VELVET. Over here, Heather has already made a velvet Amy Jumpsuit
and still has a crushed velvet number to finish for our holiday party next week. We got out all the books, we have trialed and errored (those are...
Hi there, Amy here. On instagram we asked you what your absolute must-have sewing books, tools and fun extras for your sewing practice and boy oh boy, did you let us know! We put together a lot of your suggestions as well as a few of our own favourite gifts for the sewist, or maker in your life. And if that person is you... please feel free to forward this Santa.
There were so many great books that have come out this...
The deadline for our Sew Frosting Challenge
is around the corner (Friday to be exact) and I am coming in just under the wire with my second Frosting project (here's
my first), this insanely luxurious and swishy Amy Jumpsuit
in silk velvet. Yes! Silk! Velvet! Is! A! Thing!
Of course, I'm not entering the challenge but I would have kicked myself if I didn't meet a deadline I created. Last week I forced myself to block some sewfrosting time into my workday even though it was a crazy busy week. I broke every step down into bite-size...

I was scrolling through Instagram a while back when a Madewell dress
popped out at me; it was a simple corduroy shift dress with a V-neckline, patch pockets and a button placket at the side seam that looked a lot like our Charlie Caftan
, minus the center panel and gathers. I've been meaning to make a cold-weather version of Charlie for ages, so I quickly started plotting a way to recreate it.
First up was finding the right corduroy. I wanted a beefy wide wale like the Madewell version, and after posting about it on Instagram, it was Club...
Do you ever get struck by an idea so intensely that you have to see it through no matter what? I get lots of ideas (you should see the stacks of notebooks I have strewn around me at all times) but it's rare that I get so
gripped with one I basically stop everything I'm doing and throw myself into a research hole I can't climb out of until I've found the solution. Such is the story with the newest addition to our shop, our silver and gold Maker & Sewist necklaces
These delicate pieces reference some pretty iconic...
Hello all! Amy here. I imagine by now many of you are knee deep in your frosting projects
(right guys?!). In case you are still looking for inspiration to get your sewjo fired up we thought we would put together a roundup of some Frosting looks that Closet Case customers have made with our patterns. Chances are, if you are reading this, you may already have one of these in your stash.
