Business in the front, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious in the back. Today I'm excited to jump back into the sidewalk chalk drawing that is CraftingCon!

Then & Now: Magic of a different sort.

My favorite blog post of all time was my first trip to CraftingCon via broomstick. I'm thrilled to be back, by way of flying umbrella this time, with simple tips and tricks for combining a woven character fabric with your favorite knit tee pattern. So hop on a floating cloud and head on over to CraftingCon for Disney (Non-Princess) Month to read more and see all the details. Spit spot!

  1. Totally and utterly awesome. Making me want to watch Mary Poppins too. I especially have a soft spot for suffragettes song. But my favourite was feed the birds when I was younger. Thank you for this, it's great.

  2. Is there a certain pattern you used for that Mary Poppins hat? It is exactly what I'm looking for! My three year old has asked to be MP for Halloween! Thanks and your MP outfit is super cute, btw!

    1. I got asked that question about the hat a lot, so I finally wrote it up. Find it here: http://theinspiredwren.blogspot.com/2015/10/crochet-pattern-mary-poppins-hat.html
