I recently achieved something I've only ever dreamed of....I managed to sew up one of my fabric strike offs FOR a pattern test! If you do pattern testing and strike off sewing(or know about them), you know that finding a balance is key, but seldom do the two end up overlapping perfectly.

I'm pretty darn excited about it all, too!
Hey yall! So glad you're here! Every season, it seems, I decide to embark upon the ultimate quest....the capsule wardobe. And every season, I get about 1-2 pieces in and I either get bored with creating basics, I run out of fabric within my color scheme, or my ADD kicks in and I completely forget… Continue reading Beginning at the beginning again-my every season struggle to begin a capsule wardrobe
This post is going to serve as a catch up post. While I love to sew and love to share, I have kids a fairly busy life, which means that often, things don't get shared. I'm really tired of looking at my pretties and realizing I didn't share them. Sewing, for me, is all about the tangible item/reward that comes from it, as well as the feeling of having completed something. Lord knows, nothing else in this house ever feels like it's really "completed". (Laundry or dishes, anyone?...
Hi everyone! I have a few online "friends" that I follow for inspiration, advice and tips. Sewing with Sarah is one of my favorites. She recently had a scare, where someone took a photo of hers, removed her watermark, then used the picture to market their product. This isn't the first I've heard of companies… Continue reading Reblog: Tip Tuesday: Hey! That’s my baby! (and my photo) – Sewing with Sarah

I was lucky enough this past month to receive an amazing little box from Influenster. If you've known or followed my social media pages for awhile, I'm sure you've seen me share some of the fun things I've gotten from them. But my favorite things, by far, are these things called VoxBoxes. They are random packages you receive full of fun little products to test, in exchange for your reviews on them. I love it!
