Knits have always been a little scary to me, but since my Madalynne x Simplicity bodysuit went so well, I’m embarking on making a knit Henley (pattern by @threadtheorydesigns) for my husband. This awesome fabric is a cotton/spandex/wool blend from @thetinthimble (available in their Etsy shop) and it’s super warm and cozy. I rarely dabble in menswear, and I’m pretty excited to make this! What other patterns for the husband should I pick up?
Since our serious downsizing happened (see two posts back for details on that) my Christmas decorations are more limited than they’ve ever been. I’ll definitely be bustin’ out my ‘merry’ and ‘bright’ appliquéd pillows and if you want to learn how to make them, I have a tutorial for you! Visit www.palindromedrygoods.com and this post is at the top!
I remember being five and making a pact with myself to never wear leotards that snapped in the crotch ever again. I hated them. Well, today I sewed snap tape onto the placket and crotch (!) of my Madalynne x Simplicity bodysuit like it weren’t no thang. Seriously though, this jumpsuit is so comfy, I have it on under jeans and I’ve been lounging in it all day. A blog will be up next week about this new garment! #madalynnexsimplicity8435 #simplicity8435 #bodysuit #sewingissexy
I need your help! It’s time for me to add a new (not vintage) sewing machine to my arsenal and I need to know what machines other sewists are out there using and loving. I do mostly apparel sewing but I’m not sure that I want a serger. It needs to be under $500 and sew everything from knit to quilting cotton to silk without an issue. What should I get? Thanks for your help! 🙏🏼✂️🧡 #sewingblogger
💁🏼♀️Hey there! I haven’t been around here much because I’ve been too busy renovating the camper we’re living in full-time. Yeah, my life’s been a lil’ weird lately. But, I’m talking all about it over on the blog today and I’m excited to share this new chapter in my life with everyone! It’s nice to be back here and I plan on seeing more of you! Link to the new post is in my bio. Extra points if you can spot Opie cat in this photo. 🐈
My project for the next few weeks (maybe months...). 😍 I've wanted an antique quilt on our bed for years and when my mom reminded me that we had used this incredible 1930's, hand sewn, quilt top at my wedding, I was elated. Not looking forward to sewing a border onto the hexagonal edges but I can't wait to finish it. It'll finally get the life and use it deserves!
