Sewing Patterns Blog Tour ~ Jess from Craftiness is not Optional

As I mentioned yesterday, The Cottage Mama Sewing Patterns are going on tour.  The first stop is over on the lovely Jess’s blog, Craftiness is not Optional.  Today Jess is showing off her version of the Janey Jumper sewing pattern and giving away two copies of the pattern!

Jess has two sweet little girls and comes up with some of the best little girls outfits.  She is so sweet and has a really fun writing style.  We ‘met’ (though we’ve never met in person) through the first edition of the children’s sewing contest, Project Run and Play. I’ve loved her blog ever since and am so glad we can both share our love of girly girl outfits and sewing for our girls.  Jess’s blog always brings a smile to my face.  Not to mention the fact that I think she might have two of the cutest little models in blog-land. 

Here’s her darling version of the Janey Jumper sewing pattern:

You must check out more pictures of her little cutie-pie modeling her version of The Janey Jumper over on her blog.  

Also, head over and enter to win one of two Janey Jumper patterns that she is giving away.
