The problem with these #upcycled rompers is that I’m too lazy to put snaps in the inseam... so a diaper change necessitates full derobing. #thanksforpooping #imakemykidsclothes #ilovemyserger

Some progress pics on my pile of ruffles for the dress I’m working on! It’s so amazing to have my serger back and in perfect working order! It cut the amount of time I needed to make these gorgeous ruffles down by more than half!! It’ll be so much fun to add them all together!! #lolitadesigner #homemadelolita #bittersweetlolita #bittersweet #roses #coffins #gothiclolita #ruffles #sergersarethebest #ilovemyserger #lovewhatyoudo

Such fun today in Skirt Class...at the new Homespun in TRUMANSBURG! We worked in the front of the store with great light, a nice breeze, some chatting with passers by and, naturally, took a break to get coffee at Gimme. 💯🙌 Check out the skirt I made today in the last pic. Once you get the pattern down they are so fast to whip up, even if your serger is being a total s**t. #ilovemyserger #ihatemyserger #sewingwithknits #everydayskirt #wardrobebasics #summeruniform #homespuntrumansburg #homespunithaca #littleyarnstore #littleyarnstoreithaca #littleyarnstoretrumansburg #makeyourownclothes #handmadewardrobe #clotheshorsestudio

Making sure those edges don't fray with my serger.

I plan to debut this Paris Pashmina dress this weekend at the @renegadecraft show Saturday and Sunday from 11 to 6pm at the Brooklyn Expo Center.

I'm still in love with those cute baby pants I made recently! They are so cute and soft! The making of the pants though was a weird labour of love. If you ever consider sewing a batch of clothes for yourself or someone else you might find it useful to read my latest blog. There I tell about my personal experiences and pros & cons on sewing a batch of baby pants! Also if you just want to stare at those cuuute pictures, you're welcome to my website;)

Day 35~My Favorite tool~ Well it’s more of a machine than a tool, but I can’t sew without it! I love my serger. It makes my insides just as pretty as my outsides! 😍 @tabithasewer @faithstjules
Thank you so much for creating and hosting #coloruscreative @tabithasewer. I had a blast connecting with all the amazing people that participated. I can’t wait to get my duffle bag that I won week 2 from @sproutpatterns!

Hey all! Sorry I've been absent for so long! I've had some unexpected complications with recovery and it's set me back a fair amount 😞
BUT!.... I have been fiddling around here and there with my machines and have started on designs for a new line coming soon!

Reusable straws on the go! Plastic straws are a huge problem! I'd give you statistics but then you might feel like I'm trying to make you feel guilty (which I only kind of am). In general, plastic straws are used and tossed without a thought and the pollution and problems they cause for animals is a big deal. We switched to metal and glass straws at home but as warmer weather moves in, there are more times we want to reach for a straw on the go. So a super quick server project was making a case to carry metals straws (and a cleaning brush) in my purse. No more twisting and flicking plastic straws fun, but that's a small price to pay! #babysteps to #ecofriendly #plasticfreeliving #noplasticstraws #smallsewingprojects #ilovemyserger

Reusable wipes with pouch and small wetbag! Spring is here and we are getting dirty on the go! I'm trying to take small steps wherever possible to cut down on waste and these will work awesome with the hand sanitizer I made last month. #ilovemyserger #quicksewingproject #ecofriendly #dirtislife

What a creative way to celebrate international PI day (yesterday) ❤️

Happy Pi Day! Anyone for some serger pie?? This pot holders was created on the serger and then the rick-rack was sewn on by the sewing machine. I love it when my machines play nice together! #geekysewing #happypiday #ilovesewing #ilovequilting #ilovemyserger #lindabcreative #lindabrattencreations

Blackwood Cardigan out of French Terry. Matches great with a RTW top that I was thinking of retiring. I decided to take a mirror selfie as I have not posted my last 4 makes...too dark for pics after my hubby gets home. So here goes :)

Serging the edges of a pillow cover for Christmas pillows ordered last week. The noise is loud but the finished look is wonderful. One of my favorite business purchases. #sherisewsweetonetsy #serger #etsysuccess #pillowcover #behindthescenes #girlboss ....

I cut out four patterns to sew in early December, but holiday busy-ness kept me from sewing you. Guess what: I’m coming for you, my pretties.

This #upcycled #tshirtskirt was leftover at the end of market season so I am wearing it out to run errands today to see if I want to keep it or list it on Etsy. #sewinsta #ilovemyserger #upcycledfashion #upcycledtshirt #upcycledskirt #themushroomtree

This is how I spent my afternoon. Sewing this bunting was fun. But as per usual I cannot stand unfinished seams. Yes I used the serger but I also fully lined it. It is lined with super soft knit from #robertkaufmanfabrics and the main fabric is of course the best #shannonfabrics #cuddle The pattern is from #simplicitypatterns #ilovesewing #ilovefabric #ilovemyserger #fullylined #ilovetosew #makersgonnamake #handmadewithlove #handmadegarments #handmadebabyclothes #bunting

The pre-holiday crafting pile on my dining room table has begun to spread to the nearby kitchen stools 😂

It's not a serger, it's Cromwell tank! 😄 Thank you, serger, for not letting me down! 4 layers of medium weight sweater knit fabric - mission accomplished 💚💚💚 #ilovemyserger #sewing #janome #ilovesewing #finlaysonsweater #finlaysonsweaterinprogress #makemenswear

Squeezing in a bit of serger work while I enjoy my second cup of coffee and figure out the rest of my day...which, sadly, involves more cleaning than sewing ☹️. ___________________________________

Back to work adding to my fall wardrobe...and much as I love the feel of this fabric, it's stretchy, drapery and thin and much more of a pain in the a$$ to work with than I thought it would be 😬🙄😖. *and now I'm glad I only ordered enough for one top*

These shorts went from fake pockets to real pockets tonight. Much better! Now I can keep my phone in my back pocket just the way I like to. I am having lots of fun with little projects thanks to the class I took in the spring. Using a precious piece of Stonington. @threadsoftimefab @dsquilts #ilovemyserger #juki

Re-threaded my serger by tying new thread to old with disastrous results but was able to follow thread paths and find the missed loop. Whew!

I LOVE this purple satin. I'm so lucky that @sirenasama found it for me! Also pleats can die in a fire 🔥. Need to let the skirt sit for another day before I trim the hemline and then actually hem it!

My Fuku base is done for Saturn! I couldn't have done it without the tutorials from @cosmiccoterie. They were incredibly helpful! I'll be using more of their tutorials for the rest of my Fuku. Tomorrow I plan on getting the sleeves and collar done. Maybe the bows if I am motivated enough! 💜

Peasant blouse progress: this neckline is going to have to wait until tomorrow. The pattern calls for elastic with a self casing for neckline and cuffs, but I prefer a stabilized contrast fabric with the pleats sewn in. I used the cuffs from another pattern, but I'll have to make up the neck as I go along. #peasantblouse #patternedprint #isewmyownclothes #ilovetosew #ilovesewing #sewingpattern #sewing #newlook6892 #neckline #ilovemyserger #ilovemysingersewingmachine

This black fabric and my sewing lamp are creating a purple effect, but really I just wanted to show off my piping. I used my serger's cording foot for the first time and I love it! #piping #pipingfoot #cordingfoot #serger #ilovemyserger #ilovetosew #isewmyownclothes

Well, that only took 15 years to finish. You'd think I was waiting on the right machine to get it done. #ultimateprocrastinator #ilovemyserger #ihatehandsewingpurseliningsthough #thiswillbebackinstylesoon

I got my other serger back from the shop and I'm in heaven.

When you realize you don't have a red shirt to wear for #internationalwomensday so you stop at the fabric store on the way home and start tracing your pattern right after dinner.

On to Day 4 of #marchmeetthemaker - tools. I don't use anything too exciting, iron, sewing machine, seam ripper (d'oh!). The very basics are my rotary cutter and serger. I mentioned in a recent post that there's something cathartic about the hum of the serger. For me, the serger means a finished product, as it is the last step in making my nursing pads. And when I first started out, I was cutting 5x5 squares of fabric with scissors! ✂️ My poor wrists! 😆 The rotary cutter allows me to cut hundreds of pieces in a short time, perfect for assembly-line preparation.
