I had SO MUCH FUN making this cathedral window pillow today with the instruction and help from @gogokim at @sewsweetness sewing retreat!!! Omgeeeeeeee so much fun. I NEVER worry about perfection because for me personally it ruins the whole experience. I’d rather have fun and have a pillow that’s pretty if imperfect. Just do it right?! Right!!!!!!! 💕💕💕You can see the second photo I got a little cray, but that’s me and I’m owning it 100%. I’m so glad Kim accepts me. 😂😂😂😂😂😂 #sewing #sew #sewingfriends #sewingretreat #surroundyourselfwithgoodpeople #communityovercompetition #isew #makersgonnamake

Easy market tote with dimensions turned 90degrees. I love using unconventional materials like gold spandex with canvas. I need the bling in my life. #hhsewingpattern
Also I’m impressed I e kept my spider plant alive. 🤗🌿🌿🌿

I'm heading out to Chicago for a sewing retreat- this is much needed therapy time with Sewing People. LOL! ANywho, I'm packing up my Essentials Tote with all my things- it has huge vinyl pockets which help me organize. This pattern is in my shop for only $5 -PDF download for 24hrs only. Etsy link in bio.⠀

Happy Sewing!⠀

Stephanie @modernsewciety has made a single layer dress out of knit fabric! Great way to dip your toe into the Metamorphic dress if you’re a bit wary!

#metamorphicdress dress hack for the #summerdressalong with @sewhungryhippie. Go check out her page for all the info on the pattern! I am a rule breaker and used one layer of this gorgeous knit by @the_tattooed_quilter for @rileyblakedesigns, lengthened the bodice by 2.5" inches, left hem/arms/neckline raw. Super easy, fast, and so wearable in this Florida heat.

I posted a live video of how to lengthen the bodice today so check that out if you want more info. Also check out Natalie's blog and fb page for the sewalong. She is a wealth of knowledge.

Loooooooving my new #louboxtop ( pattern by @sewdiyblog ) in a silky rayon from @stonemountainfabric ! This pattern is so fast and so easy : which is exactly what my brain needs after seeing all this hurt in the world. We can do better, so why don’t we?

Metamorphic Dress #1 Done! What a great back to sewing after 30+ years project this was. 100% Cotton inner and outer fabric for hot summer days. Easy sewing and learned the burrito method. Thanks @Sewliberated for the clear video tutorial and @sewhungryhippie for the kickstart. I will definitely make this again, likely in a more drapey fabric. #metamorphicdress #summerdressalong

Wearing what I make ... I have worn this ONCE. After re-evaluation of my closet and clearing out all items I don’t love-I decided to dress up this week for ME. If I wear something and I’m not feeling it I will donate it or cut it up for another project. Funny how this can happen- “making” something and then : bleh......But I refuse to judge or feel guilty. It just IS. #carryon 💁‍♀️
Fabulous fabric my Amy Butler. Dress pattern in Japanese dress book. 💕
PS: now I’m feelin’ it. 😊 🙋🏼‍♀️

Finished everything except the hem for the #metamorphicdress #summerdressalong and it turned out nice! I’ll make a few changes for the next dress. 1️⃣ I’ll make a smaller size as there is too much bulk for my liking2️⃣ I’ll use a heavier fabric with more drape. This dress used cotton voile which is nice and light for the summer but not drapey enough if that makes sense 😜 3️⃣ I’d like a bit more length. Overall it’s a nice pattern and easy make thanks @sewhungryhippie for organizing this #sewalong! #sewingmywardrobe #memadeeveryday

#sashiko bag made last night while watching Queer Eye ( which is SO good it makes me ugly cry).... I used a strap from a previous bag I never use, and Sashiko panels I intended for a quilt but I can’t force myself to work on anymore. Abandoned and up cycled - use it right?! This pattern is coming soon. 💕💕💕

・・・ I loooove this plaid print with the red! It pOps! Thank you for making Iris !
My second make in 1 week (#humblebrag ) is the Iris Messenger Bag, pattern by @sewhungryhippie . Her pattern is so easy to follow and feels like she’s teaching you how to make it vs reading an instruction manual, excellent!

All the fabric came from thrift stores. The strap was some nylon webbing I had (her pattern uses a fabric strap, but since I had dog collar/leash stuff I never made, I just used what I had.) I made the padded shoulder using some of the scrap pieces because I don’t like straps digging in. Zippered pockets are vintage napkins. And, since I put a very padded laptop sleeve on the inner backside, I put the zippered pocket on the front outside.
Things got a little thick, and bent some needles, but I love this bag!! Sorry for the novel, I guess this is why people blog blog blog...

Thank you @weftyneedle and @sewhungryhippie for sharing your passion with the universe, we are all better for it!
Learned weaving from Wefty WonderWoman Tara Curtis @modernstitchingaffair in April, and I used Natalie Santini’s messenger bag pattern to use my weave!
