Sewing is my passion!
I began sewing in 2013 when my children were toddlers and was inspired to make them clothing. I started with cute little dresses for my daughter (this pillowcase dress was the first!) and button-up shirts for my son (like this summer shirt for boys). I loved the creative process of choosing the fabric and turning it into something that someone could wear!
From there I quickly tried all different types of clothing and different types of fabric — Halloween costumes, fancy dresses, pajamas, and some tops for myself. I tackled knits and silky fabrics, learning so much as I went. It wasn’t until 2018 that I branched out into quilts, home decor and bags, and found a love of free-motion quilting. Now there’s nothing I won’t tackle!
I use this blog to document all of my sewing creations, lessons learned, and tools I can’t live without. I hope to spread inspiration to others on their sewing journey who love sewing as much as I do!
My Sewing Machines
