Padded Phone Case with Pockets

I was tired of digging through my purse to grab my phone when I’m out and about so I made a phone case or pouch to hang off my purse. Unfortunately, I didn’t take photos as I made it so I made a second one from my Sweety Pooh’s old jeans and some scrap fabricContinue reading “Padded Phone Case with Pockets”

Boho Purse from Ugly Stash

I made a post about some super ugly fabric I was given and I gave some ideas for things to make with ugly fabric. I promised to follow up with anything I created with what I now refer to as my “ugly stash” so here I am, sharing the purse I made. Included in thatContinue reading “Boho Purse from Ugly Stash”

What to do with Ugly Fabric?

Below is a list of inventive ideas what to do with ugly fabric. I recently received bags (big white garbage bags) of fabric from my ex mother-in-law which was so very nice of her and I don’t mean to complain but some of the fabric was flat out ugly. I tried to search for aContinue reading “What to do with Ugly Fabric?”

Quilted Carseat Canopy

I wanted to make my niece a quilted carseat canopy but I couldn’t find a quilted pattern. They looked fairly simple so I took all the information from several patterns and just adapted them to be quilted. What you will need: Sewing machine Ruler Something to make rounded curves like a big bowl or frenchContinue reading “Quilted Carseat Canopy”

Organizing Fabric

Just thinking about organizing my fabric was daunting. I have fabric everywhere in my craft room. I have tried organizing it before but with limited space, I had few choices so it all ended up in big plastic totes and two dressers. Every time I need something, I have to dig into the totes andContinue reading “Organizing Fabric”

My Thread Catcher Attempt

I made so many mistakes on this that I hesitated sharing it but I like showing that I’m not perfect and nobody is.  Maybe my mistakes will help someone else somehow. I should never sew when I’m tired and my back is sore because I just wind up powering through things and I make mistakesContinue reading “My Thread Catcher Attempt”

Rounded Yoke Summer Dress

A friend gave me this dress and I love everything about it except the color washes me out. It’s retro and fun and super comfy so I thought I would try to find another like it but I couldn’t so I thought I’d sew something similar. I thought I would just whip up a sleevelessContinue reading “Rounded Yoke Summer Dress”

Boxy to Fitted T-Shirt with gathered neck

I cut out a design with my Cricut and realized the black vinyl was too dark for the navy blue t-shirt I had purchased from Amazon. I love these particular t-shirts because they are lightweight, tailored at the waist and are flowie at the bottom. They are also long enough for me but they costContinue reading “Boxy to Fitted T-Shirt with gathered neck”

Bra Fix for Better Side Coverage

I love these bras but, like a lot of bras, they do not sufficiently cover my side boob. Yes, I said boob because that is what I call the extra that escapes under my armpit. When I was young, I didn’t have this but as I aged, my little…er not so little…birdies drifted. I haveContinue reading “Bra Fix for Better Side Coverage”
