    Home Sewing Angie Dress

    Here it is, my second and final Selfish Sewing Week Project! Nothing like the last minute for me, I finished my Home Sewing Angie Dress Saturday night right around midnight. I hadn’t made a Sis Boom Angie dress yet, and this seemed like the perfect fabric for it. And now that I have a dress […]

  • Tee for me

    Tee for me

    It’s Thursday of Selfish Sewing Week, and I’ve finally gotten to make something for me! I spent the earlier part of the week sewing up a tote for my son’s teacher.

  • Seaside Hanami Dress

    Seaside Hanami Dress

    I picked up the Perfect Pattern Parcel last week during Kids Clothes Week. This is a neat project on its second “parcel” or pattern collection.

  • Goodbye 2013, Goodbye RTW, Hello 2014!

    Goodbye 2013, Goodbye RTW, Hello 2014!

    Last post of the year! I’m saying goodbye to 2013, and with that I’m making a promise for 2014. Notice I said PROMISE? I do not make RESOLUTIONS. Mostly because I’m defiant by nature and don’t want to be told what to do. So… what’s my plan for 2014? Yep, no store bought clothes in […]
