Shush! I LOVE this Literary fabric by @crimsontate for @windhamfabrics ! Purchased this fabric @fwfabricstudio and I do believe I need more before it's gone🙈. Who besides me is old enough to remember the card system in the library?? I totally enjoyed the library as a kid. Still do...its a happy day when I can hide in the library and read! Using some of the card fabric for low volume on my #bluerkblocks for Jessica @craftycop . What's a bluerkblock you ask? Check out her profile to see! #ilovehisfabric#lovehisfabric#sewforacause#sewwhatyoulove#thankyouforyourservice
Working on an apron for the lady across the street who just turned 75 today. She runs circles around me cooking and baking for the whole world. She asked if I would make her a second apron for when her first one is in the wash. I don't usually cut with scissors and I'm not very good at it. I'm a rotary cutter/ruler sort of girl. However when I do use the scissors there's something magical about that sound as they cut through the fabric and it resonates against the table. Brings me back to being a little girl watching my mom cut out the clothes, toys, and baby things that she sewed for my family and extended family. I'm going to use her machine to sew this apron as a quiet little tribute to her. Sure miss her! PS...the machine is named after her...Mary 😊 #sewwithlove#missmymom#giveback#sewwhatyoulove#shareyourgifts#handmade
Just traveling along with my "on the go" #epp kit! We're on our way to the Farmington River bike trails and you know what they say about idle hands! Joe made the spool spindle and everything is magnetic😊. Don't you just love my custom pin cushion ring? It was made by my friend Sue Parker @skippydoodledesigns and I LOVE it! She's pretty awesome too! #sewing @jensearthangels #slowsewing#hexagon#hexilove#handsewn#sewwhatyoulove#sewingpassion
Doing a little selfish sewing today. I've been itching to make myself a tuffet! Got this awesome kit by #fairfieldworld . Joe will turn custom feet on his lathe! He also made me the awesome tuffet template and between that and my rotating cutting mat getting the 40 strips cut up was a snap! Dug deep into my stash! There's some vintage @michaelmillerfabrics , some vintage @jenniferpaganelli, and some stuff so old I don't even remember where I got it! That's not true... I always know where my fabric came from, like a mother and her children 😂. What have you been itching to sew? #destashsewing#sewwhatyoulove#tuffet#ilovethisfabric#lovethisfabric#selfishsewing#sewfun#itchtostitch#decor
Do you use pressing sticks? I saw a set in a catalogue and was curious so I had Joe cut some for me. We bought four different size dowels and he cut them into 1/3 and 2/3 pieces so I have a short and a long of all the dowel sizes. Swipe through to see how I use them. They really make getting a good crease on a seam that you flip quite easy. How do you use your pressing sticks? #sewing#sewinghacks#sewingtools#ilovetosew#sewwhatyoulove#sewandcraft
Another shot of this pouch before it leaves me! So grateful to get in some sewing time during the summer when I'm mostly in the pottery studio. See some of my summer makes @azurearts__pottery if it interests you. Would love to see you there!
