I made it to round 2 of Pretty Girls Sew’s sewing competition. YAY me!! I can’t say I was super excited about my last submission but hey, I made it. Thanks so much to all that voted for me. The stress of making that dress under my personal time constraints almost took me out. But I made it thru to tackle round 2. (more…)
I’ve been itching to create something with neoprene since I randomly picked up 4 yards of it during a random fabric store run. I decided to finally put it to great use while creating my dress for the Rippin Ain’t Easy Sewing Competition. (more…)
I can’t tell you how excited I am about returning to creating garments again, especially ones for myself. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy creating for others but sometimes it feels so refreshing to work on a project for myself. I’m sure other creative people can relate to this odd sense of thinking.
When the ladies of Pretty Girls Sew announced they were having a sewing contest, my level of excitement peaked. I’ve taken part in a few of their monthly sew-alongs (see here and here) and really love their enthusiasm for sewing. So imagine how much fun their Rippin Ain’t Easy Sewing Competition will be, for me at least. Along with 8 other contestants, I will be creating garments using sewing patterns that are selected for us. You, the readers, will have the difficult task of judging our final looks. Voting starts tomorrow for the Rippin Ain’t Easy Sewing Competition. Wish me luck and don’t forget to check back tomorrow for my garment pictures.
Happy New Year ya’ll! Yes, I stepped away for a while and took a blogging break. Well maybe a little longer than a while. I guess I got a little overwhelmed with life and trying to keep up. I got a bit distracted by personal choices and also my 9-5 life. But stepping away was much needed. It allowed me to gather myself and refocus on why I started this blog in the first place. I gladly appreciate all the people who take time to stop by to read and comment here because that keeps me motivated to keep sharing my creations, adventures, and ideas. (more…)
