I had such a funny disaster this week that I had to write a Terrible Tuesday post. I would be a dishonest blogger if I didn't. We all have sewing and crafting fails. This is my latest.Read More
This year my daughter asked me to make her a Cinderella Costume for Halloween. I must admit that it made me think of this funny sewing meme I saw in my Instagram feed...Read More
So... I've had this dress cut out and ready to sew together for over 7 months. How's that for procrastination?Read More
So, all this week I've been getting emails from people who think they found the real source behind this Pin. Funny thing is, these same pictures are showing up on lots of different blogs and almost every blog takes credit for them. Only one blogger admitted that she found the pictures somewhere else.
Instead of doing that, I'm going to show you my own pictures!Read More
I'm so excited to show you something (or someone) that I've been working on for a few months... a doll pattern!Read More
Ya'll know how much I love the holidays... and I practically sew for Christmas all year long, lol! This week I made a Raccoon Softie from the PDF Pattern by Mariska of DIYFluffies and it turned out too cute for words!Read More
This tote is a great size! just big enough, but not too big, I love it!Read More
Wow. I am shocked. This is not the project that I thought would be making. It was not winning the vote a couple days ago when I checked.
But as of today, the Un-Tutorial that is getting the most votes (which means I will make it and show you how) is...Read More
Have you ever had almost enough cotton batting to finish a quilt? Or wondered if left over pieces of quilt batting could somehow be used? Of course you can use them... just join them together.Read More
This is not the way I had intended to show you my finished sewing room. It's pretty messy and I still have lots of organizing to do. But I am so so grateful that we are safe and dry after hurricane Matthew has passed!Read More
Many of you know that I live in Florida so I thought I might give you a little update on the spot where Hurricane Matthew is supposed to hit. Right now the models show the hurricane barely making contact with Cape Canaveral - about 30 miles from where we are.Read More
It's UnTutorial time again! Un-Tutorials are those sneaky pins that lead you to believe there's a tutorial behind them - and then there's not. Or maybe there's a bunch of pictures with no real instructions that you can understand. Those kinds of pins are so common that I gave them a name and started a Pinterest board.
And now it's time for YOU to vote for the Un-Tutorial that I'll solve (aka write a new tutorial for) this month!Read More
A couple months ago I ran out of patience with my old Elna serger... even though the sewing function still worked okay, she was a beast to thread and the presser foot lifter had broken off, which made inserting fabric tricky. Plus she lacked the feature that i dreamed about most... jet air loopers.Read More
I was in the mood to do QAYG (quilt as you go) and I was also in the mood for pom-poms (they remind me of music notes, lol) so this is the result.Read More
Today's Friday Spotlight is a double whammy!Read More
