Happy Birthday Katy! {and my Lille Dress}

I know I have been insanely quiet around here, so much has been going on, I just haven’t had time to post (and frankly my computer has pretty much not been unpacked in weeks.) We have left Korea, fit in a Hawaiian vacation as a stop over on our way to the US, and spending…

Emmie’s New Coat

So I wish I was kidding, but I literally started this project January of 2014. (as my instagram account can attest) Thankfully I made it too big for Emmie, because it still fits her well, especially considering how much she has grown this year. I got it 80% done, but then ran out of steam…

2014’s Resolutions, How Did I Do?

    Hello! Are you so excited about it being 2015? I am looking forward to so much of what’s ahead, but before I get too far ahead of myself, I thought I would look back at my resolutions from last year and give myself a grade for how well I did! Since there is…

I’m Assuaging My Guilt…

I’m just popping in today to assuage my guilt over not posting recently. I have no really good reason to be over here beyond that to be honest 🙂 I have been making a bunch of stuff, but because of my usual poor planning, I have no good pictures to share (my instagram is usually…

A Shibori Table Runner

I have been MIA over here (shocking I know) but that never means I haven’t been making stuff, just that I have been a bad blogger. I have been doing some sewing for a guest post, some sewing for Emmie’s fall back to school wardrobe, and even some for myself. I have several patterns and…

Knockoff Anthropologie Firenze Velvet Tassel Pillow

    I shared the 5 new pillows I recently made for the family room yesterday, with the promise that today I would get around to posting the tutorial for the Anthropologie inspired velvet tassel pillow,   My pillow is a knockoff of Anthropologie’s Firenze Velvet Tassel Pillow,   My teal velvet fabric color was…

Family Room Pillows

    I’ve been on a pillow making kick in the family room for the last couple of weeks; after the open house this Christmas, I decided that the couch was a little too bare. I have added 5 new pillows since then, and I really like the way that they tie the colors of…

Knock Off Anthropologie Layered V-neck

Have you entered my awesome Birthday Giveaway yet? If not, hop on over and throw your hat into the ring! Today I have sort of a quick and dirty post, (that isn’t a full tutorial,) but it does show how I altered an existing pattern, to make a knock off shirt from Anthropologie. Anthropologie has…

Tween Guest Post {brought home}

I am so excited to be here today, as tween sewing is one of my greatest passions! (Thanks Sally and Major Moma for having me!)  I have a total soapbox that I like to get on to complain about clothing companies not making things that are age appropriate for older kids by either having them…

New Couch Pillows

I decided recently that the kid’s couch needed a few more cushions, especially to pull the colors of the rug into the room, I was wanting something that was patchy looking so I could tie in all of the colors, but I didn’t want to do it in a quilt style, since that really is…
