The girl is currently playing volleyball, and she also has gymnastics on Saturday mornings, so she asked me to make her some pants that would go over those clothes. It is coooooooollllddd out there, man. So cold, my car battery […]


My family knows me so well. For my birthday in December they all gave me gift cards for Michael’s craft store, which amounted to around a $100 all together.  I finally had a chance to go do a little shopping, […]

The holidays tended to go quite fast this year, and I didn’t get pictures taken of everything I made for everyone. I made a few gifts: – A white fur minky infinity scarf.  It was very plush and the gift […]

I had thought that I wouldn’t put out my goals/resolutions for 2015, but Here It Goes: 1.  In 2014 I sewed up around 120 items and 140 yards of fabric.  This is my (very messy) fabric closet today. Goal:  Quit […]

Anya is back into gymnastics, and it is time to make her a new leotard or two…or three.  I still use the same basic leo pattern that I have used in the past, which is Kwik Sew 2679.  I have […]

Sally from Daisy Chain Creations and Sew Cool for the Tween Scene asked me to participate in this blog hop, so here goes! What am I working on: I always have something on my sewing table, and I tend to […]


When I drew this design up, it was supposed to be the wings on a Phoenix.  Or the tail.  I forget.  I drew it at some point last fall (as in over a year ago, fall) when I was watching […]
