Cuddle bug #prettypearlygirly
Mi amor ❤️
Celebrating 14 years of marriage to my favorite dude today. We make a good pair. ❤️ @wirenestsound
Cuddlebug. Wish I was off today. It’s raining and cold and I want to sit on the couch and knit. #prettypearlygirly
Roberta, you’re so worldly #robertathecat
Button plackets are sewn. Not sure how I feel about my pattern placement but I don’t have enough fabric to worry about it. #deeranddoemelilot #africanwaxprint
Finally cutting out my #deeranddoemelilot from this #africanwaxprint that I’ve been saving. So excited!
Perfect weather makes me happy
The weather is amazing and I’m going I have a great day.
When you run out of large enough muslin pieces you resort to quilting cotton. Third or fourth muslin on the #deeranddoemelilot more photos in my story. #isew #deeranddoepatterns #sewingalterations
Rainy day chilaxin. #prettpearlygirly
@_pennylea_ Frank just sent me this ❤️
Second time I’ve seen this moth in this spot
Can’t beat tacos with a lightening show. Thanks @werokitchen for sharing this spot.
Dog park nights 🐕 🐶 🌅
I finally blogged about my McCalls 7445 pants and my celestial top in hand dyed fabric from my mom @connie.akers Apparently I’m into this odd cropped pants length lately. I saw it described as 7/8 length. It seems to be off the moment. I will do another post soon with more info about how I enclosed the yoke seams of the #celestialdress top. . . . #ashleyakersblog #m7445 #patternfantastique #memadeeveryday #imadethis #handmadewardrobe #indiepatterns #mccallspatterns
Front garden is looking good. We added the striped yucca and the Maximilian sunflowers are bloom 🌻 #texasgarden
Now closed. Giveaway: So excited to share my Parasol Trousers from @ensemble.patterns This was my first time being a pattern tester and it was such a fun process. I’m new to pants fitting and this really pushed me to forge ahead. I’m super happy with my results! I consider these a wearable muslin since I overfit them for this lightweight chambray. I plan to make another pair in a stretch denim and use top stitching to really highlight those awesome pockets and seam lines! If you would like to win a free copy of the Parasol Trousers and Jumpsuit pdf pattern leave me a comment and like my page. I will chose a winner on Friday. . . . #parasoltrousers #ensemblepatterns #ashleyakersblog #indiepattern #giveaway #sewensemble
Cruisin with my homie @wirenestsound
Sad day for the Napanee halter. I’ve been working on this dang thing for a couple of month. Got one half done and realized I messed up. The proportions were off and it turned out i had started with the smallest size and then counted for the next side up. Oh well, had to rip out a bunch but I will be worth it. #napaneehalter #avocadodye #ashleyakersblog
Happy October friends
Sewphotohop day 29: stash buster or scraps I usually give scraps to mom for her art quilts. I am adept at using small pieces of special fabric for parts of a pattern, but I rarely make small pieces like this. I made this clutch with hand dyed fabric a couple of years ago for my friend Gretchen. #sewphotohop2018 #handdyedfabric #imadethis
Sewphotohop day 28: favorite fabrics Natural fibers: linen, rayon, silk, cotton. Hand dyed or yarn dyed weaves. Indigo wins my heart always. #sewphotohop2018 #ashleyakersblog #handdyedfabric #indigodyed #ikat #memadeeveryday #imadethis
Sewphotohop day 27: other hobbies Mostly hanging with #prettypearlygirly and @wirenestsound my hobbies also include, knitting, cooking, hiking and seeking outdoor adventures, fare weather gardening and more recently and reluctantly home improvement projects. #sewphotohop2018
