Spring Line Photo Shoot – Behind the Scenes

This past Saturday was a milestone for MLP. I had my first “real” photo shoot. I have been hard at work for the past four months leading up to this day. The days and weeks leading up to Saturday seem like a blur to me. There were a lot of late nights at my machine, lots of mumbling and grumbling under my breath and let’s get real, a lot of dishes in the sink.

I thought it would be fun to share with you a few behind the scene photographs.

All of the models did such a great job! I was really nervous at first, but things went better than I ever could have imagined. We had a “wrap party” at the end with the most amazing cupcakes from a local bakery.

I hit the photographer jackpot when a friend told me about Elisabeth from LibbeyBelle Photography. We have worked together several times now and her work is AH-MAZING!! Any local peeps in the Indianapolis area should check her out! She was so sweet sending me these pictures from her phone after the shoot. https://www.facebook.com/libbeybellephotography

New Year, New Blog- Happy 2014!

Happy 2014 and welcome to the all-new My Little Plumcake blog!


Most people make resolutions and while we typically like to swim away from the school, we’ve decided that this year we’re on board with the resolution thing.  2014 is going to bring about growth.  We are determined to work harder and better to bring you a fantastic sewing experience.  Our blog is just the jumping off point for all of the new & exciting things that we’ve been dreaming up.   We will keep posting to our Facebook fan page, Facebook group page,  Instagram and Pinterest (follow us!), but we also have some really awesome NEW stuff on our list:

  • Giveaways
  • Tutorials
  • Recipes (sewing snacks anyone?)
  • Sew-Alongs
  • Patterns of the month
  • New pattern testing opportunities for you
  • And our MOST EXCITING upcoming event….the Spring 2014 pattern collection!

The Spring 2014 pattern collection will include patterns for both girls and boys and will, of course, feature Michelle’s eye for detail and style.  We could not be more excited about it!  Keep an eye out for a tester call in the near future.  We’ll be looking for experienced testers with fresh eyes and a willingness to help My Little Plumcake deliver a quality product for our extremely valued customers.  That’s all the detail we can reveal right now, but we hope it was enough to get you pumped up about it!

One of the really fun things we’ve decided to do in 2014, is feature one of our patterns every month and offer a discount for that pattern.    For January 2014, we’ve chosen to feature….. :::DRUMROLL:::


 The Sophie Jacket!

 This jacket is awesome for finishing out the winter and welcoming the chill of early spring.  It is a belted cape that creates the warmth and visual illusion of a sleeve by using a belt or a ribbon to tie it closed.  It’s fully lined and perfect for beginners.  There’s a faux button placket that gives the look of buttons with the ease of snaps!  As with all My Little Plumcake patterns, the Sophie is an instant PDF download- NO WAITING.     Michelle has JUST re-digitized this pattern as part of her plan to make MLPC the best it can be!  Snatch it up right now for 25% off.


We really hope that this blog will give you a great sewing experience.  We aim to help make you a more Savvy Seamstress with a little Plumcake spice and everything nice.

Happy New Year,

Michelle & Crystal
