Christmas Gifts 2018

Christmas is always my busiest time of year. While I enjoy the holidays, my work schedule always makes it hard to fit in celebrating. So I like to spend little bits and pieces throughout the year making gifts for my family as my own way of enjoying Christmas all throughout the year. Here is aContinue reading “Christmas Gifts 2018”

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.

Restyle Exchange 2018

This is one of the last projects I worked on in our old apartment.

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”

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”

A Tale of Two Toaster Sweaters

When I first bought the Toaster Sweater 2 pattern by Sew House 7 from Indiesew last year, it was because it reminded me of the sweater in the pictures above that was for sale at Anthropologie at the time. Seeing as that sweater was somewhere around $80-90, I decided to try make my own instead.Continue reading “A Tale of Two Toaster Sweaters”
