Just thought I’d drop in a quick post about a new release out today, the Giverney Blazer from Winter Wear Designs!
Circle Shrug Free Pattern
Happy Thursday! Today I have a really easy and customizable FREE pattern to share with you! I kept seeing a ton of these drape cardigans out there, but nothing in a circular shape like I see in a lot of knitting patterns. So I thought I’d put one together, and I’d give others the chance […]
Capitol Hill Dress – Sew Fab Bundle
It’s Sew Fab Bundle time! An awesome time of year, right? This time it’s all about the Ladies! Ten all new women’s patterns! I got to test the Capitol Hill Dress by Straight Stitch Designs.
Crêpe Myrtle Dress
Somewhat a delayed blog post on this dress, but that’s just how my summer has gone! So much happening day to day that I keep forgetting to blog it all. But I couldn’t go too much longer without posting about this. I’m calling it my “Crêpe Myrtle Dress” because Myrtle is the pattern and the […]
Delilah Pattern Tour
I was super excited to be invited to join the Delilah Pattern Tour today! Mostly because I totally need new shirts. Selfish? Um… yes. But darn it, this is a cute shirt!
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. Another mom organized a multitude of gifts for next week’s Teacher Appreciation Week, and I volunteered a bird themed tote since their class nickname […]
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 […]
Swim Shorts Lining Tutorial
How to customize a leggings pattern to add a lining for girls’ or women’s swim shorts. Honestly, I don’t really swim anymore. I used to swim! I used to love swimming. The water just doesn’t feel that good anymore. But my kids have finally gotten to the stage where they LOVE to swim. So I […]
Summer of No Pants
Well, submission time for the Summer of No Pants contest has come to a close! Seeing all the submissions has been awesome, and (once I do the wash!) I should be set to wear skirts this summer. Luckily I have a decent collection already. I’m going to try to Instagram daily with the hashtag #sonp2013. […]
Upcycled Teeshirt Striped Skirt
Here’s my third and final Summer Of No Pants #SONP2013 entry! An Upcycled Teeshirt Striped Skirt. I took two ten(ish) year old tees I didn’t wear anymore because the style was too short and boxy, and turned them into one skirt I can wear all summer! This was easy, although slightly tedious to make all those […]
