swoon: H is for Happiness

I stumbled across Eva Juliet’s etsy store last week and simple love her artwork. Her use of color, type and design is awesome, and her work is affordable. Big win in my book for sure. View more of her work here. Cheers and Happy Monday! xo Kristi

stitch: Quilt Sneak Peek

A slew of my friends are having babies this summer, so I’ve been a busy bee on the weekends making various baby blankets. I haven’t had a chance to properly photograph the current quilt that I just completed, but wanted to post a snap shot. I am absolutely loving the pattern and color combo. It’s the perfect quilt for a summer picnic in the park, right?!  Cheers! xo Kristi

stitch: Wiksten Tank Pattern Review

I made the Wiksten tank over the weekend with a fabulous print from Liberty of London (which I had purchased 3 years ago while traveling) and couldn’t believe how easy the pattern and step-by-step instructions were. Seriously, start to finish it took about 2.5 hours (due to tracing the pattern out first). Initially, I envisioned myself wearing this tank with white skinny jeans and heels, aka typical summer attire in Dallas. Once I tried it on though, I realized it was just a bit too short in the front on my frame for jeans. Happy to say though, the tank looks great tucked in to a pencil skirt!

CityCraft  blogged about the Wiskten Tova Top last week, which will be my next weekend project as well. If you’re in Dallas you can purchase both patterns at CityCraft, otherwise they’re available online here. Cheers! xo Kristi

stitch: Color Block Clutch Tutorial

Color blocking has been all over pinterest lately, so I decided to make 2 color block clutches this weekend. I worked out the kinks last night with the template and the color block clutch tutorial is now ready to download.

I’m so excited to make additional clutches – the color possibilities are endless. Please send us pics of your clutches at moderndrygoods@gmail.com. Cheers! xo Kristi
