#throwback to Nov 5th 2016, when I worked in a shared stall and did a #collaboration with @missymoo_and_babyboo and @joyandgracehandmade with my sweet friend Anna, at the #unley #vintagefair , here in #adelaide
We had SUCH an amazing time together as #workingmums !
I will always look back on this day with the #warmfuzzies, in fact, I often day dream about doing it again! Haha!
My #dollies and I had a blast that day and I even rehomed some, and managed to take a few custom orders home from the day!
The experience left me SOOOO in love with the #handmadecommunity and drives me to do what I do everyday, connecting with other #craftyfriends particularly those like myself, who are #fulltimemums and are crazy enough to squeeze sewing in despite being driven crazy by our kids! 😂😂

*SPANDEX IS EASY TO SEW!*
While we are SHIVERING here in Australia, I am DREAMING of the #summer just gone! We spent so much time #atthebeach and my girls got so much wear out of their #mamamade #swimmers !

So often I see women say they are afraid to sew with #spandex and I am here to say DON'T BE AFRAID!!! It is such a dream to sew with and gosh, the QUALITY of the fabric, compared to store bought...well it doesn't begin to compare!

Once this disgusting winter has gone away, I am going to hunt down a #patterndesigner for us to sponsor a #swimwear #sewalong, and show you ladies how EASY PEASY it really is!
Who's in? 😁😁😁😍😍😍 Now! Onto the deets for those who came for them! Haha!
The top pattern is the #tweeniebikinis from #boodesigns and the bottoms pattern is #scrundlewear from #stitchuponatime. And the #fabric is #spandex from @wickedfabrics

*SEWING SPANDEX IS EASY GUYS!!*
Sigh...dreaming of summer... It got down to -0.2°C overnight in Adelaide! Blegh!
I made these #maternityswimmers in the summer just gone and wore them to do laps at the pool 2 weeks ago! I'm pleased to say they fit well still! Just a little spare fabric around my tummy! 😊
Bottoms were made using #wickedfabrics #spandex in the #stitchuponatime #scrundlewear, and the top was a #patternmash of #stitchuponatime #brazi and #spoxxytank, again in #wickedfabrics spandex!

Once this disgusting winter has gone away, I am going to hunt down a #patterndesigner for us to sponsor a #swimwear #sewalong, and show you ladies how EASY PEASY it really is!
Who's in? 😁😁😁😍😍😍 #sewingislife #sewinginfluencer #sewingblogger #sewingvlogger #sewtopiaaustralia

How beautiful is this little guy! I sewed him up in one afternoon using the #freepattern from @mistyswhimsies for my sweet little boy #rubentheodore. This is called #cherrythefox and you can find him @ https://www.mistyswhimsies.com/freepattern/
Trust me guys, this was EASY! I sized it up before printing and plan on making some minis too in matching fabrics and coordinating outfits! Wouldn't this make a beautiful baby shower gift? 😍
Mr Ruben and Mr Fox are wearing #fabulousfoxesfabric Matching #overallspattern is from #tadahpatterns #vintiesoveralls

Day 8 Winter #bpsewvember ...I am in the process of making warm winter clothes for my visit home in the Midwest soon! I made both these winter pieces Monday evening using Burda 6476. The first is made with an olive green sweatshirt fabric and the second is made with pink and black sweater knit fabric. Both are long but the sweater knit version looks so good as a dress. It’s interesting how both are made the same (except one has sleeve cuffs and the other one does not), but you get two totally different effects by using different fabric. It’s actually getting cold enough to wear these here in Vegas ( I am sitting next to a heater as I type this)😀. However, in the Midwest this can’t be worn as just one piece, it will also require me to layer it up with an extra shirt, scarf, coat, boots, etc. I do not miss those cold winters!!! @bimbleandpimble :

New #diyblog post (link in bio)... so I never knew making a pair of curtains could make me as giddy as I am about these curtains I made for my sewing room. The fabric is a gorgeous home decor floral waterfall cotton canvas from @stylishfabric ...the color and bold print really brightens up my room and gives the room a whole new vibe! After knocking these out, I am ready to tackle the rest of the curtains that I have been planning to make this past year 😂 :

Day 5: Origins #bpsewvember ...Since I fell asleep in my sewing room last night, what a perfect time to share my origins...This pillow started it all back in 2011. I have shared the story before but here’s a little more. I was living in Chicago, had a great job downtown with a big company, I was in my 2nd Masters program at Northwestern University, rented a tiny, cute condo in the city, cool car, early 30s, when life really was supposed to start and... I WAS MISERABLE!!!! To the point where I would wake up in the morning crying. I had no real passion for anything. I was an unhappy person. I longed for something else, but didn’t know what. The day I was supposed to start my 4th class at this “prestigious” university I sent in my withdrawal papers and on a whim signed up for a sewing class at a neighborhood fabric store. It was in that “very cold basement” where I found my zeal for life! I learned to sew and made this pillow. I have been sewing ever since then. Eventually, I ended up quitting school, quitting my job, moving away for a brief period, and working a temp job that paid significantly less, but I had my little singer curvy sewing machine, lol. Nine months later, I moved to Vegas for a job, with 2 suitcases and no where to live yet, another on the “whim”. Literally starting over. I didn’t know it then, but since I have lived in Vegas, I have grown so much in my sewing and in opportunities that I am not sure would have happened had I stayed in my perceived comfortable life. I use this pillow all the time in my sewing room for back support, to sleep on, and mostly to remind me of the moment I found my happiness. Life is still full of ups and downs for me, but I know one thing, sewing will always be my refuge after my faith of course. @bimbleandpimble #bpsewvember :

Machines #bpsewvember ...meet more members of my family! My sewing machines!
1st: Bernice, named after one of my ride or die aunties. When my Granny Elaine wanted to get her attention, she would call her by her middle name and loudly say “BERRR-NICE”! 😄. This #tulapink #bernina 350 SE was a Christmas gift to myself last year.

2nd: Larry, this is my Viking 930, a gift to myself Christmas 2015. He is very shady and I had so many problems out of Larry, BUT when Larry acted or acts right, he really comes through BIG time and almost makes you forget your frustrations with him for a moment. Larry is my backup mostly. (Yep named after a former associate 😂, but so appropriate). 3rd: Brother, nicknamed Bruh, my Brother serger. Although I am hoping to upgrade my serger soon, Brother has been a very reasonably priced workhorse. I think I have messed up the tuning trying to work him too hard.

4th: Ju-Ju Bee 🐝... she is my Juki cover stitch machine that I am still getting to know, but we have made a little magic together this year.

5th: Eleanor, a classic, my $10 thrift store vintage find, Nelco zig-zag machine, this one makes the most beautiful and consistent zigzag stitches and is a heavy little thing!

6th: Edith, a $15 thrift store vintage find. Another heavy thing, I don’t use her too much sewing wise, her settings are a bit off, but she has been a very useful “security” door stop for me. @bimbleandpimble :

#sentimental #bpsewvember ...let me introduce you to my dear dress form and friend “Lady”. I can spend a lot of time talking about all of the things that are sentimental to me, because I am a sentimental extremist. But this time I want to talk about Lady. When I first got into sewing clothes, I told my mom I needed a dress form to work on. My mom said, I have “a lady” you can have, so she gave me this one from a boutique she use to co-own. I asked my mom what is her name, and mom’s response was, “umm Lady”, as if I didn’t get it the first time when she called her Lady. Lol. My mom supports my sewing passion majorly! I have moved several times since Lady became mine, but the funniest is when I relocated her to Vegas with me. Instead of getting her a plane ticket(as if, 😜), I took her apart and stuffed her in the largest suitcase I could find. At the airport when checking my bag, I told the ticket agent, I have a dress form in my bag, please don’t mistake this for a human body when it is scanned through security and please don’t damage her😂. (P.S. I am the person that always gets pulled to the side at security checkpoint or have TSA “your bag was searched” notes in my checked bags for having sewing tools, sewing machines, vintage irons, or dress forms in my luggage 😂). Even though I have a professional dress form now named Ann, I still use Lady, she will always be my number 1! Oh I made this coat and self drafted my dress in this pic too! @bimbleandpimble : sorry for bad pic, took a pic from my computer screen 📺 :

Breakfast at Tiffany’s ...#happyhalloween ...I watched this movie 🎥 for the first time earlier this year...I didn’t know I would dress up as this character for Halloween 🎃 until last evening when I found myself on the eve of Halloween without a costume (so not normal for me, I love dressing up). I thought maybe I could go to the thrift store and find something real quick. After not finding anything, I went to Walmart and saw the last wig like this, and from there I thought Audrey Hepburn... so while at Walmart I grabbed a tiara, black knit gloves, craft paint and dowels. Then I ran over to Ross and found this one last dress for $12.99 hiding in the wrong size section. I had the necklace, shoes, and earrings at home. I DIY’ed my “gloves” by cutting off the sleeves of a knit blazer I made and I sized them down with the serger. I have the gloves from Walmart on top of the “sleeves”, which works great because I can take the bottom part of the gloves off and have my hands free (for texting of course). I painted my dowel black and white to create my cigarette. For less than $40!!! Viola #hollygolightly #breakfastattiffanys #fashionicon #audreyhepburn :

These windows are getting dressed!!! I need a little extra prettiness in my sewing room as we begin this transition into 2018 (can you tell I Iike to think ahead sometimes). So I am starting by adding curtains. Last night I started prepping and pinning the curtain tab tops onto this pretty yellow/gray/creamy floral home decor fabric from @stylishfabric ...So as much as I have referenced my home decor sewing books for the “technical” or “right way” to make curtains, I am “freestyle” sewing these, because sometimes you just need to sew from the heart ❤️❤️❤️... not to mention my brain is like, now what the heck is this book saying to do again? Anyway, I love how my freestyle is looking (and measuring up) so far! #trustyourheart (sometimes 😂)

So I decided not to put these summer makes on the blog, because I kinda didn’t like most of my pictures, the look, or styling, but nevertheless, since I spent the time making these looks I will share a few not bad pictures in this post.
Picture 1) Sooo the fuchsia #simplicity 8389 top looked great on my dress form Ann, it was very ill-fitting on me, but I love ❤️ my ivory and black pants #simplicity 8386 (I love all 3 pairs I have made actually). These pants get a lot of wear.
Picture 2) #mccalls m7602, super cute on the hanger and actually fun to make, but not sure it was very flattering in the bust for my girls. I am giving it away to a family member.
Picture 3) McCall’s M7593...another “looked really great on the hanger and dress form”, and I love my fabric, but just kinda a “meh” for me and another giveaway to a family member. How does things that you make look “better on the hanger” than they look on you, I mean is that suppose to happen when you make it just for you? 🤔Lol... I guess so 😂 #confessionsofasewingdramaqueen #mood #blah #notfeelingit :

6 more snaps to sew on and my fall/winter wool coat is done! Coming next week for @fabricmart ! I was so bummed when my original lining was ruined in the pre-treating process but after seeing how beautiful the leopard print lining looks in this coat, I understand why that first lining couldn’t work out. Though you may not always understand why...things happen for a purpose! #simplicity 8469 #details 💛💛💛
