Brassy Apple Review & Giveaway

I am very excited today to share with you an amazing shop.... The {Brassy Apple}

I truly enjoy creating unique, eclectic items for women and children and extending my designs to offer patterns and DIY kits for the Do it yourself woman.From my Shaggy Mosaic style jeans, Aprons, skinny scarves and more, I hope you find something unexpected in each piece. Designing with fresh colors and fabrics that are only reproduced a few times keeps things new and original for you and me! 

I was very excited to feature The Brassy Apple with my readers especially since I have been buying Megan's ebooks for the past few months now. LOL My first purchase was her "Shaggy Mosaic Jeans" This is the best project ever. I hat throwing away the girls jeans just because they have holes in them and I hate ugly patches. Megan's tutorial for the "Shaggy Mosaic Jeans" was my saving grace. I can now re-fashion their old jeans into some oh so adorable ones instead of throwing them out!
This pattern and directions were so easy to follow. I had my own masterpiece done in no time. I literally spend all my time just trying to find the right fabric. Don't we all. But actually putting this together is a dream and your lil one will love showing them off. I like that she shows that a mom can wear these too. So all you {Trendy} moms out there.... don't forget to fashion some for yourself!

Another one of my favorites of Megan's is her scarves. She has 20 different styles. Each of her ebooks gives you 10 different designs. So you will definitely find a favorite for each member of your family and friends too. Yep, you will be making these as gifts. I know I am. Christmas, Birthdays, you names it. Anyone would love one of the Brassy Apple Designs. You can choose from The Bunchy Scarf Pattern or The Brassy Neck Scarf Booklet. Both have some pretty fabulous patterns. Trust me you will want both ebooks. And I made my first scarf in about 15 minutes while cooking dinner. LOL Super easy instructions with some cute photos too!

Jamie got some copies of the scarf ebooks from Megan too. Here's what she had to say...

You are going to love this Brassy Apple Neck Scarf eBook. It is FULL of awesome scarf patterns that are wonderfully illustrated and explained. I'm by no means a master seamstress but these patterns look so fun, quick and easy that I can't wait to give them a try. I need to buy some fun fleece and get to work because I've got lots of friends and family that live in cold, snowy climates and I'm pretty sure their necks are begging me to make them a cute scarf...or two! You have to check this eBook out and get sewing! A cold neck will thank you!...or just an averagely warm neck that needs to be cuteified! (I think I just made up two words! ha!) 

Ok, not only is Megan fantastic for her Shop, she has a blog too! The Brassy Apple Blog is just as fun because she shares some really great tutorials there. You will go crazy making out a checklist of off the projects she shares. I already have a huge list.

I found a post today that I added to my list. It's for a {Girl's Rosette Shrug} Re-fashioned from a T-Shirt. Just look at how adorable that is. Your lil girl will love to wear this beauty. I think the rosettes would be cute for lil head bands, clips or pins too!

Another post I loved was Megan's {embellished arm warmers}. I have seen some arm warmers before, but these are above and beyond all others. These are the most creative and adorable arm warmers I have ever seen. I even featured them a couple weeks back. Because I loved them so much, I went straight out and bought what I needed to make some for my girls. They loved them! They wouldn't take them off. My nieces came up that weekend and when we took them to the movies, all 6 girls were wearing them. We got a lot of stares and oh how cute those are. LOL So I know you will love making these for everyone you know! Even yourself! I made myself a pair.
