Lap Quilt with Swirly Fur Fabric

Finally, something for the man who bought me my beloved sewing machine for my birthday…last May. – a quilt for my husband!

30 Days of Audrey Hepburn - Drafting the Pattern

The best part about learning on the “job” per say is that I am able to scrap an idea and start over. Since I’m an impatient person (especially for a project I’m super excited about and CANNOT wait to begin with), I’ve decided to work on possible pattern ideas for Week 1 Day 1 outfit, specifically the high waist shorts. 83 more words

Geeky sewing inspiration

I bought a fancy new sewing machine a little while ago and have made a few things using it, but not many.

My little girl is now in nursery a couple of afternoons a week so I have a little bit more time to sit down and try some new things. 212 more words
