Have you ever fallen so in love with a fabric or pattern that you just think of it constantly? That was me with this pencil skirt for about a year. I saw this fabric on Minerva back in January 2018, and couldn’t stop thinking about it ever since. Once I finally got my hands on some, I struggled!!
Merry Christmas! I’m sharing my first ever set of me-made family Christmas jammies on the blog today! Christmas jammies is one of my favorite holiday traditions, and it was so special to share it with my husband and tiny girl this year! I’ve got all the details on our matching set (hint – there are SLOTHS) as well as some pretty stinking cute photos. Whether you are reading this today or sometime after, I hope you all enjoy a fantastic and peaceful day with those you love!
Another Recap – and another super late post! I’m excited to look back over my September / October makes today, halfway through December. I think next year, I’ll be switching to quarterly instead of bi-monthly recaps, because I just can’t seem to keep up!! Over the two months I’m recapping today, I made 12 new garments – my three favorites were the matching outfits I made for our family for our tiny girl’s first birthday! I did more “selfless” sewing over this period than usual, and also did a little scrap busting by sewing up a headband out of some leftover leggings fabric. I didn’t include any photos here, but that has probably been my most worn item from this period!
It’s RECAP time! I sewed up SIX stash fabrics over the last two months, which I’m super happy about! My July sewing seemed a little slow, as I started my first ever pair of jeans about halfway through, but once I powered through that awesome project I was very productive throughout August! I had the luxury of taking some time off around my birthday, and just sit in my sewing room for an entire day and make stuff, which I haven’t done in many many months. It felt so great, and was the perfect birthday gift to myself. I also brought you guys in on the birthday fun by hosting a pretty awesome giveaway!! It was a super great couple of months, and here’s the outcome:
