Welcome back to the second week of the Jersey Love Blog Tour! Kristy from Hopeful Threads and Vanessa from Designs by Sessa are up today with a pair of Runaround Pants and a Beachcomber Dress both sewn with those amazing Riley Blake Jersey Basics.Kristy from Hopeful Threads is not only an incredibly talented seamstress, but she’s one of the most generous people I know. Each month, Kristy runs a special project that encourages sewists from around the world to sew and give to various charities. This month, she’s collecting Pencil Pouches for the children of the Pine Ridge Reservation. Her blog is packed full of fun and practical tutorials like the 2-minute Pencil Pouch (perfect for this month’s project), Big Daddy’s X-Large Oven Mitt, Whaley & Starla Stuffed Friends and the Pet Treat Pouch. I absolutely love Kristy’s Sewing Essentials Series that she uses to share her favorite indispensable sewing tools. I keep finding new things that I simple must try! Kristy also shares many of the projects that she completes for her own family, too, like this adorable I-Spy Quilt. Can you believe that it was her first ever completed quilt?!For the Jersey Love Blog Tour, Kristy sewed an adorable (and comfy!) pair of Runaround Pants for one of her little guys. You can check them out by clicking on this sneak peek picture:Vanessa shares her beautiful sewing along with peeks into her busy life as mom and foster mom on her blog, Designs by Sessa. She sews the cutest clothes for herself, like her Monogrammed Seafarer Top and this Women’s Rash Guard (complete with tutorial!). Vanessa shares all sorts of sewing tutorials on her blog! I love this Chevron Applique Skirt — so sweet and so simple. And, these Vintage Sheet Mommy – Daughter PJ Pants? How can you resist such cuteness? I think my favorite thing on the Designs by Sessa blog, though, is The Porch Series. Vanessa invites talented sewing bloggers from all over to share a little bit of insight into who they are via conversations on the porch. You really have to go check it out!For her stop on the blog tour, Vanessa sewed up a Beachcomber Dress for her niece, and she even took pictures at the beach!
