Succulence Blog Tour

Today is the last day of the Succulence Collection blog hop, hosted by the very lovely Bonnie Christine of Going Home to Roost. Have you seen all the lovelies on the tour thus far? Amazing. I am so honored to be on this tour alongside a lot of talented people! And Art Gallery fabrics are so special. Once you work with it, you will immediately feel the difference.

Tip Top and Dress: 2016 nani IRO collection sew

To those of you who have found me via Petit a Petit and Family, hello! And thank you for coming all the way over to my little corner of the sewing world. 

Now that you have seen the Ash top that I made using that lovely grey nani IRO Pocho fabric, I would like to share with you the second item I made using fabric from the new collection. Just a warning: picture overload!

Pattern Testing: The Trinity Tee by Rock the Stitch

You probably have heard me mention many times that my pattern testing adventures began with the women's Aberdeen Jacket from Rock the Stitch. It was thanks to Rebecca taking a chance on me that I entered the testing world (as a total beginner, no less!). So you can imagine I was very excited when I heard she was working on her next pattern, this time for kids! The Trinity Tee.

Pattern Testing: The Mackinaw Coat by Designs by Call Ajaire

How has your 2016 been so far? Many of my blogging plans have fallen to the wayside, but at least I've been sewing a lot! I'm here with a fabulous coat pattern that is launching today. It's the Mackinaw Coat by Call Ajaire. Comfy-cozy and really cool.

Project Sew It - January 2016

So let's be honest. Until now, most of my sewing has been selfish sewing. And I don't mean "selfish sewing" in the sense that I have been sewing for myself (anyway, I think of that as "self-care sewing"). I mean "selfish" in the way that I make almost all of the sewing decisions regarding the clothing that I make for my children. It's a pleasure that is truly a selfish one. I get to decide on the fabric, I get to choose the pattern, and I select the notions. Of course it is not entirely a dictatorship; I do ask them for their opinions sometimes, ha ha.
