Sewing room redo: DIY Pegboard

DIY Sewing Room Pegboard

Hi! It’s been almost a month since I last posted a sewing project  and a busy month it’s been. I managed to finish my last project right before my birthday, but I never have gotten a chance to wear it anywhere yet. Sadly, my father in law Bob passed away the day after my birthday. […]

Making my sewing studio part two


This post leaves off from around March when we finished the first part of creating my sewing and crafty studio. In part one I showed how I partitioned off my garage and added sliding glass doors instead of the old wood doors to let in more light.This is the old garage before we did anything […]

A little bias-ed dress McCall’s 7116

This weekend I made Miss G her floor length maxi dress made with the fabric she picked out at Joann earlier this summer. I used the Violette Fields Emmaline pattern also bought at Joann and we are both happy with the results! This photo was taken at dusk on the road near our home. I […]

Another tennis dress : Jalie Anne Marie


When I decided to get into tennis by joining a city run evening class, I would have never thought I’d stick with it for almost two years and join a women’s USTA league. I may only be playing at the 3.o level, the beginning level for competitive tournaments, but I’m totally excited and also a […]

McCall’s 7386


I loved the look of the skirt on the model of the recent release from the McCall’s Learn To Sew For Fun pattern line, M7386. I like maxi skirts and dresses but don’t wear the ones I have very often, so I decided to make the shorter view of the skirt, view C. Maybe all […]
