Sew Americana 2018!

Three years in a row, my friends, I have convinced some AMAZING bloggers to join me on a blog tour that celebrates all things red, white and blue.  And I'm excited to share with you day one, and my leg of the tour.  Just like years past, I convinced my guys to let me...

G+G Festival Fever Blog Tour

G+G Festival Fever Blog Tour

You should know by now that I love a good blog tour.  I also love the women I've connected with in the sewing world -- and generally speaking if Molly (our tour guide) or Kristi (the designer behind George + Ginger) ask if I want to play with them, I jump at it!...

Let me tell you a secret about me that's not secret at all: I love a good adult beverage.  I mean, don't we all?  Haha. When Erin sent me this "SubLIME" fabric from her new lineup of The Real Thing custom prints, I was instantly inspired to whip up this new tanktop...

Threads of the Month :: May 2018

Threads of the Month :: May 2018

I'm firing myself for being my own hype man.  Because I totally started a fabric subscription service and didn't even blog about it the first month.  For shame! But it's okay, because I'm here to share with you this month's fabric.  And e-prance around...

Fall Mix Tapes by Vintage Lace Prints

I love when a fabric shows up at my house that can be used for clothing for Louis.  Because it's the perfect excuse to sew something for him....and then take photos.  Sewing has seriously helped me create a snapshot of my growing little man, using my "big camera". ...

Enchanted Whimsy :: Just That Nifty Sewing Company

Let me tell you a little about my love of mixing prints, and playing with fabric: it's endless. When Keanna first contacted me about her new custom fabric company, I was excited.  She's taking a slightly different approach to her prints.  Each design is handpainted by...

Bennett was my prom date for the second year in a row, for the Wheeling Young Preservationists Adult Prom.  Any excuse to dress up in a fancy gown and dance with my hubby is the best thing ever. And of course I need to share pictures of us looking all cute and stuff. ...

I helped test the original Boundless Dress from Patterns for Pirates back in 2015 -- and I'm here again in 2018 with the update!  We've been going through older patterns and tweaking the fit, as well as updating the files to fit with the new specs that we have...
