Glamper-licious with a Cherry on Top

Nothing says summer like being outdoors, enjoying a slower pace, and eating sweet treats that are at their best once a year. Growing up in the Midwest, cherries were reserved for summer days, and I remember them being a staple of our 4th of July celebrations.

Goldilocks Blog Tour- Addie Jo Skirt

I’m so thrilled to bring you another project from Riley Blake! I love the variety of prints and textures they bring to the fabric world, and they are some of my favorite people to work with in the industry. Today I’m bringing you a project from one of their newest designers, Jill Howarth. Her Goldilocks…

One Thimble 14- Amuse Boho Top and Dress

I seriously can’t believe that we have made it to Issue 14 of One Thimble! It seems like the time has flown by! I’m excited to participate in the tour again, especially considering I’m sewing for ME this time! How’s that for self-care sewing!

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 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…

Desert Bloom Beverly Belle

Back in April I received an email from Amanda Herring, asking me if I’d like to participate in her Desert Bloom Blog Tour. WOULD I?!?! I tried to maintain my composure and not go all fangirl on her, but I don’t think I kept my cover very well. You know when you have those favorite…

One Thimble Ezine- Issue 11- Adventurer Pants

This post contains affiliate links. If you choose to purchase any issue of the full Ezine, I receive a portion of that sale. This doesn’t add to my millions . . . it just allows me to fund my fabric and trim addiction! I can’t believe we are at issue number ELEVEN for One Thimble!…

The Minis Blog Tour with Pat Bravo Fabrics

I think most everyone would agree that everything is way more cute when it’s done in miniature. Even those silly food videos where they make the tiniest donuts, or burritos for hamsters . . . I just can’t stop watching! So the thought of making a mini quilt immediately intrigued me, but the real kicker was using Pat Bravo’s gorgeous Essentials II and Dare fabrics as my inspiration!
