I never tire of a good before and after! When people know you sew, they tend to just throw things they don’t want your way. It’s both a blessing and a curse (no I don’t want your hole-y mud stain splattered jeans thank you very much). One thing I NEVER say no to is good leather… its always good to have around.Click here if you would like to continue reading
I want to start making an effort to video and share some tailoring & alterations tutorials with y’all. I figured I’m doing this stuff all the time for clients anyway, might as well turn it into some great and helpful content for the blog! This one is a big one that can seem quite scary, so when I had to do it for a client recently I made sure to video the process to talk you through it.Click here if you would like to continue reading
Instagram destashes are the best. I’ve been curious about this pattern since it came out (I love the cropped version!) But I didn’t consider actually making it till this fabric came into my life and it seemed like a match made in knit dress heaven!Click here if you would like to continue reading
I get asked a lot about how I take my photos and what I use for a backdrop. It always amuses me because my set up is quite rudimentary, but with some careful photoshop magic, I’m able to make it look like my photos are taken in a professional setting.Click here if you would like to continue reading
It’s finally reveal time on this fun project I did in collaboration with Workroom Social Fabrics! If you missed it, check out my behind-the-scenes planning post I did for this project here. Be sure to watch my you tube video for this make (scroll down) for a special guest appearance!!
So I’m FINALLY blogging about this super cozy sweatshirt I made with speckled sweatshirt fleece from D and H Fabrics last year. I LOVE the shape of this top (so swingy yes!?)
Most often when I see a fabric I immediately know what it is meant to become. This was absolutely the case with the polka dot rayon I used for my birthday dress, and the striped rayon Jackie gave me for our Share Your Fabric Stash challenge. But every now and then a fabric comes along that stumps me. Whether it’s because the fabric is too amazing that I’m intimidated by it, or perhaps I have idea overwhelm and the one thats just right isn’t jumping out at me.
With this amazing rayon print I recently got in collaboration with Workroom Social’s new fabric collection Bantam by Kelli Ward of True Bias I think it was the former. I mean, how great is this wacky mustard-based print!? The name of the print is actually WILD!! I just have to do it justice.
Today I’m taking you behind the scenes of how I plan out a project when I’m not 100% sure what a certain fabric should become. I hope you find it helpful & inspiring as this process never lets me down.
Hello lovelies and welcome to my first post of 2019!!! I hope everyone had an amazing holiday and new year. Honestly, it took me a while to really get back in the groove of things after spending some much needed time off with family and friends. But I’m back in action now and ready to tell you all about this very exciting project I’m launching for the whole year of 2019.
Yes, yes … it’s gift guide season! I’m sure you’ve seen them popping up everywhere. I love gift guides because they take a lot of work out of the gift hunt. Themed ones are especially helpful when buying for that special someone who has interests you are unfamiliar with. So while you may not need this guide for your own holiday shopping, it may be helpful to forward along to your loved ones with a little *wink*wink* *nudge*nudge* if ya know what I mean ;).
