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”

My Mother’s Day Outfit

I love skirts and dresses, especially in the Spring and Summer. Tiered skirts are easy and fun to make. You can mix and match just about any pattern and it will work. It doesn’t even have to match and it will still look cute. I thought my Converse would look adorable with a tiered skirtContinue reading “My Mother’s Day Outfit”

Homage to My Favorite Authors

I did this quilt to pay homage to some of my favorite authors and series. It was something I did for the pure enjoyment of doing. I usually make things for other people or something that serves a practical purpose if it is for myself. If you have read any of my blogs, you probablyContinue reading “Homage to My Favorite Authors”

Easy Sew Grocery Bag

My niece asked if I could sew her some reusable grocery bags. She didn’t like the ones you buy at the grocery store. I don’t blame her. They are thin and the handles constantly rip off. I decided to try making some that would hold up way better than store bought cheapies. I found someContinue reading “Easy Sew Grocery Bag”

Dr. Seuss Scarf

This scarf has Cat in the Hat red and white stripes but the quote is from Horton Hears a Who. This started out as a simple red and white scarf but then I learned in a Cricut group that infusible ink can be used on fleece so I had to add a Dr. Seuss quote.Continue reading “Dr. Seuss Scarf”

Making Harry Potter Inspired Fleece Scarves

Years ago, I crocheted a Harry Potter scarf for one of my grandsons. He wore it until it started falling apart. He’s 13 now and still asks me to make him another one but I cannot get into crocheting lately so I decided to make one out of fleece instead. I decided to make HarryContinue reading “Making Harry Potter Inspired Fleece Scarves”

Making a Padded Tablet Case

I learned a lot of things not to do on this project. I’m making two for two of my grandsons and the second one will be much better so I hope one grandchild doesn’t get upset that his looks a little different. First, let me apologize for not taking photos of the first few steps.Continue reading “Making a Padded Tablet Case”

DIY Pin Cushion on a Canister

I had to stop all my projects to make a pin cushion. The pin cushion I was using was lopsided and hard so every time I pulled a pin out while I was sewing, I had to stop to wrestle with the pin cushion. It was seriously messing with my flow. Now, you would thinkContinue reading “DIY Pin Cushion on a Canister”

Making a Tiered Dress for Plus-Sized Women

So, I have this dress that I love because it is all flowy and makes me feel feminine. I found it in Arizona when my sugar plum and I went to celebrate his mom’s 80th birthday. Arizona, unlike Oregon, has tons of cute dresses everywhere. Oregon has things like flannels and hunting vests. I’m kidding…kinda.Continue reading “Making a Tiered Dress for Plus-Sized Women”
