Sweater Weather!

As the weather gets cooler, I have to fight my natural instinct to hibernate. Much as I’d like to cozy up in front of the fireplace (my cave) and doze off all season long, life doesn’t seem to slow down, so I have to find ways to cope. Warm clothing is essential for motivating me…

Fall Textures!

It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of Itch to Stitch Patterns– they’re well designed, practical (read: mom friendly and no crazy styles that make me raise my eyebrows!), and the instructions are top notch: three of my biggest criteria when choosing a pattern company to sew from. On top of all that, the…

A Plaid obsession….

Do you ever have a designer that just reads your mind- putting out the perfect pattern at the perfect time? Not to go too #fangirl on you, but that’s exactly what happened to me with the new Julianne shirt by the DIBY Club. I’ve had this hooded button up shirt on my mind since last…

My Favorite things in (sewing) life are FREE!

There are a number of sayings in our culture cautioning people not to trust a free product- and while sewing is far from being an economical hobby (at least for me!), I’ve actaully found the opposite to be true with regard to patterns: many of my favorites are FREE! In fact, a designer’s free pattern…

Challenge yourself! Birch Button Up Release, Review and GIVEAWAY!

     I’ve gone on  and on about sewing with wovens (see my Wovens 101 post HERE)….but I hadn’t made the most obvious woven garment: a collared shirt! Right up there with swimwear (conquered!), real jeans (yikes- not yet!) and a formal dress (I’d love the challenge but I’d never wear it), sewing a fully featured…
