Mini Moy Baby Gift Roundup

When I found out my brother and sister-in-law were expecting a baby, I couldn’t wait to get started on making gifts for them. Their Pinterest board was full of woodland creature themed decor so I went onto Fabric.com and searched for “woodland creature fabric” and loaded up my cart with everything that I thought mightContinue reading “Mini Moy Baby Gift Roundup”

Striped Chambray Tamarack Jacket

I had had my eye on the Tamarack Jacket by Grainline Studio for a while because I still wore my old North Face fleece jacket from college when the weather turned cool in the Fall and I wanted something more adult looking. Thankfully Jen Beeman, the owner of Grainline Studio, announced a new sew-along forContinue reading “Striped Chambray Tamarack Jacket”

Restyle Exchange 2018

This is one of the last projects I worked on in our old apartment. I was afraid to take part in the Restyle Exchange 2018 at first but once I received these garments from Rosy Retrospection, I became so excited. Before she sent me her items, Rosy messaged me three different sets of options throughContinue reading “Restyle Exchange 2018”

So Many Scout Tees, So Little Motivation to Take Pictures For Me Made May

Every May, I get so excited for Me Made May because I love the sewing inspiration it provides. This year I pledged to wear at least three me made garments a week without any repeats. The wearing of the garments is the easy part, the taking pictures of myself wearing them is not! The monthContinue reading “So Many Scout Tees, So Little Motivation to Take Pictures For Me Made May”

A Tour Around the Walls of Our Studio Apartment (Because the Rest of It Is Too Messy to Show)

For the past two years (four for Kevin), we have lived in a tiny studio apartment in Queens.

Since I spent the past two years trying to make this placeContinue reading “A Tour Around the Walls of Our Studio Apartment (Because the Rest of It Is Too Messy to Show)”

Caitlin’s Bridal Accessories

I can’t believe my friend Caitlin got married almost two years ago already. I was so honored when she asked me to be a bridesmaid and was even more excited when she let me make her veil and sash. The above collage features all the inspiration photos she sent me. I loved the short, layeredContinue reading “Caitlin’s Bridal Accessories”

Fabric Covered Shoe Box

Saturday night I sat down to tape together a PDF sewing pattern and watch “Say Yes to the Dress.” Then I went into the junk closet for something and found a shoe box I had been saving because I thought it was good quality. I immediately switched over to crafting something out of said shoeContinue reading “Fabric Covered Shoe Box”

Christmas Gifts 2017

Back in April, I decided I was going to try and make as many Christmas gifts as I could. My husband had been out of work since February and I was already panicking about how expensive gifts usually are because I am a worrier and like to make the worst of things. It was aContinue reading “Christmas Gifts 2017”

Scrap Fabric Coaster Tutorial

I’m always looking for projects to make in an attempt to get rid of fabric scraps I don’t know what to do with. I feel so bad throwing fabric away because of it’s impact on the environment but haven’t been able to find a place that takes fabric scraps yet. So one day this pastContinue reading “Scrap Fabric Coaster Tutorial”

An Army of Emerys

Over a year ago, I decided to start making some special occasion dresses because 2017 was very busy with weddings and wedding related events for us. I hadn’t made a dress for myself for a special occasion since senior prom because I decided to make sewing my career and for a while it was hardContinue reading “An Army of Emerys”
