One Thimble 13- Rosie Petal Party Vest

I can’t believe we are to One Thimble 13 already! It doesn’t seem like it’s been 3 years since Jen shared her genius with the planet. I’m always so proud to be a part of these blog tours, and this time is no exception. I always try to make time to do one or two…

One Fabric Nation- Hotel Frederiksted Part Two

Last week I shared a deer of a skirt made with Hotel Frederikstead, and it got so much love! It reeked of girly, shabby chic style, and it’s definitely going to be a favorite. If you didn’t get a chance to read about it, you can catch up HERE. Today I’m here to share an…

One Fabric Nation- Hotel Frederiksted

It’s that time again! I’m here to tell you all about Hotel Frederiksted, the newest line from Jennifer Paganelli that ships this month from Free Spirit Fabrics! I’m not gonna lie . . . I never turn down an opportunity to sew with my favorite JPags, but this line takes the cake! I had such…

One Fabric Nation- Addie Jo Skirt

I’m back with another Loominous 2 project for you! This line is different from most of the traditional fabrics you see from Anna Maria Horner. Think shirting weight and jacquard fabrics. They are soft and light and are great for any of your woven garment projects. You can see the knit/woven combo I made with the Charly pattern HERE. Today, I’m going to share the Addie Jo Skirt paper pattern from Izzy & Ivy Designs.

One Fabric Nation- Loominous 2 Charly

I have this quirky little habit when it comes to fabric designers. Sometimes I give designers nicknames. I use them with my fabric savvy friends because we all talk online and our fingers get weary of typing out all of the names. You know, because we have to save our precious fingers for the sewing. Names like JPags, JDew, and AMH frequent our conversations and Mrs. Paganelli, Mr. Dewberry, and Mrs. Horner are among our favorites.

One Fabric Nation- Cali Mod Wrap Up and Giveaway

I have had so much fun working with Cali Mod, the latest group of pretties from Joel Dewberry and Free Spirit Fabrics. In fact, I really want to sew through what I have left, but I need to catch up on a few more projects first. Too many ideas to use up these gorgeous colors! I have a trifecta of garments here to recap, and then stick around for a great giveaway at the end!

Labor Day SALE

9 years ago this weekend, I was hoping for a REAL Labor Day. As in, have a baby, Labor Day. We thought things would go one way, but they went another, and while I had a baby on September 5, 2009, there was definitely no labor involved. So even though we had a c-section with…

One Thimble 12- The Azure Party Dress

I can hardly believe that we are on Issue 12 of One Thimble! (affiliate link) We are almost to the three year mark for my favorite E-zine! It’s just an amazing collection of all things sewing and I hope that you check them out and not just take my word for it. Issue 12 is chock full of some great new patterns and articles, as all One Thimble issues are, and you can check out more great reviews on the One Thimble Blog Tour.

Back to School: Made for Mermaids’ Style

My kids attend a school where we follow a balanced calendar, almost a year-round type of schedule, so we’ve been back to the daily grind for a few weeks now. They also wear uniforms, which kind of breaks this handmade mama’s heart. But just because we can’t actually wear our new clothes to school, it doesn’t mean we can’t have a little fun and celebrate gorgeous patterns and fun fabric! I think we will at least have a pretty new dress for school pictures!

Posy Garden Blog Tour

One of the coolest things I got to see at Quilt Market was Carina Gardner’s infamous camper AKA “Glamper”. She redid the inside of the camper to reflect her newest line for Riley Blake Fabrics. Pulled it right into the convention center! Quilting friends from far and near sewed up the cutest mini quilts and…
