Hey everybody!! Welcome to week 2 of my collaboration with TÉLIO! I'm so excited to get this week started. If you missed last week inspiration post and review of my casual top, you can read those here!Read More
I'm so excited to share this first look of my month long collaboration with TÉLIO today! If you're just joining in, I'm going to be working with TÉLIO the month of September to share some great Fall transitional wardrobe pieces. If it takes you a week or two to get into the next season of sewing like it does for me, I'm hoping this will be the jump start you need to get inspired. So lets get into this weeks project, the casual top.Read More
Hey everybody! I'm so excited to kick off this first week of my collaboration with TÉLIO! I am a big fan of their fabrics from the colors, prints, quality, I really love and enjoy working with them. In today's post, I'm sharing all about inspiration for a simple casual style top. I think having simple pull on tops are great for fall because one, it makes layering really easy, but when made with beautiful fabrics, they can stand alone and look fabulous with jeans, boots, skirts, you name it!Read More
Hey everybody! Happy Sunday! I hope you’re enjoying your weekend! I’ve been sewing away at projects all day, and enjoying every minute of it! In todays post, I wanted to share some fun things about my new sewing machine! Its been about 4 months now since I became a brand ambassador for Husqvarna Viking and received my Epic 980q and Huskylock s25. I’ve been reading the manual non stop to learn them and all the awesome things they are capable of!
I’ll be sharing more blogs/videos like how to make buttonholes, the easy to follow tutorials and sewing techniques that come programmed into the machine and all the presser feet that comes with it in later posts. Today, is all about how to thread the Husqvarna Viking Epic 980q.
I created a video to show how to thread and wind a bobbin for the machine! I know all the bells and whistles of the Epic makes it seem a bit intimating but I can assure you, it’s not complicated at all! You can watch the video here!
Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed seeing how to thread and wind a bobbin for the Husqvarna Viking Epic 980q! Until next time….
Hey everybody! It's September 1st, and its time to kick off this Fall Collaboration with TÉLIO! I'm so excited about it! I don't know about you, but when seasons begin to change, I always get off to a slow start with sewing. Whether its overthinking what patterns I want to make, fabrics I want to use, or what I really need over just want, it takes me a couple weeks before I dive in!
I know I can't be the only one that gets off to slow start, so I figured what better way to really get the ball rolling on Fall sewing than to sew some staples. When I think about Fall I think about casual tee style tops (perfect for layering), lightweight jackets, classic button up shirts, and some versatile denim pants. Of course, your style and idea of Fall staples may be totally different from mine, and thats completely perfect (its what makes you....you!) but don't let that stop you from joining in this month!
I uploaded a video with details of this collaboration and what you can expect, but I wanted to go a little more into the post scheduling so you'll know whats happening on what days! On every Monday of this month, I will post read-to-wear inspiration, pattern options, and fabric options for the project of the week. On Wednesdays, I will post my finished look of the project, giving a review of the fabric and pattern. On Fridays, its sew along time! I'll upload a "sew with me" video to my YouTube Channel and we can sew the project together!
Sounds like fun?! I think so! And here is a schedule of the order of the projects......
- Week of September 3: Casual Top: Pattern- McCalls 7630
- Week of September 10: Denim Pants: Pattern- Simplicity 8701
- Week of September 17: Classic Button Up: Pattern- McCalls 7575
- Week of September 24: Utility Jacket: Pattern- Simplicity 8700
And in case you don't follow me on Instagram (you should :) here's a sneak peek of the first project! I won't get into how amazing this Rayon Voile Print is now, but y'all its amazing!
I can't wait to talk more about it in Mondays post!
Hey everybody! Happy Friday!! Today I'm sharing one a quick and easy make thats quickly become a favorite. I don't know about you but I love kimonos.

Hey everybody! As some of you may know by now, when it comes to patterns, I have to merge between three different sizes to get a good fit. I'm currently in a size 16 for my bust, 18 for the waist and 20 for hips.Read More
