Fabric Haul & New YouTube Sewing Channel

I'm so excited to be getting back to my sewing adventures. I'm kicking my comeback off with a little fabric haul.  Here are some pictures and fabric descriptions and you can watch the video I uploaded to YouTube for a more detailed look at my first fabric haul since getting back on the sewing wagon.

Here's the video where I shared my fabric haul on YouTube...Enjoy!  

Happy Sewing!!

DIY Thimble Shadow Box

This little project is not actually a sewing but sewing related.  A few years back I started a sewing thimble collection.  It all started when my dear youngest brother who is now deceased bought me two thimbles back from a trip he and his wife took to Israel.  The two thimbles (circled below) started my collection and they mean more to me now than ever.  Just knowing that my brother was thinking of me and my love of sewing when he saw them, makes them so precious to me.

Sewing Room Tour...

I did a quick video tour of my current sewing room a few months ago, so I decided to share it here.  You all probably didn't know that I moved from Maryland to South Carolina back in September 2016. I shared that adventure on my YouTube channel but since I wasn't sewing at the time I didn't share that adventure here. Since moving here I've been in an apartment and my sewing room set-up is a little bit cramped....but better than nothing.  So, here's the video....Enjoy!

Happy Sewing!!

Getting my Sewing Groove Back...

It's been over four years since my last post here and I've been longing to get back on my sewing wagon.  Instead I've been dragging my little wagon behind me.....BUT! I'M BACK! Please leave a comment below if you're there, I would love to reconnect. A lot has happened in this span of time, I moved from one state to another, life's ups and downs,.  I don't even know if there anyone out there still checking in but I hope so.  My sewing mojo is working so I'm working on a plan and hope to get my groove back.

I did do a little sewing this summer, here's one top I made...

Simplicity 1064
Pattern Back - Line Drawings

So, here's my version..... View B, only slightly shorter.  I was going for a tunic type top.
I also made a YouTube video if you'd like to check it out

I'll be back with more soon.  

Happy Sewing!!

Dreams and Plans for Fall sewing...

I was hoping to sew this weekend but came down with a cold this week and just didn't feel up to it.  I did however get several pieces of fabric ready to sew.  I pre-washed fabric this weekend out the ying/yang...LOL 
Tote of knit fabric to be pre-washed
and still have a little more to do.  It's a job that sometimes I'm tempted to bypass but have learned better down through the years. BUT, to top it off I just found out my dryer just gave up the ghost, I think the heating element just went out.  I'm so glad I did my regular laundry first.
So, here what I'm planning for fall so far...

I plan on making the 3/4 length top out of these three knit pieces below, unfortunately the colors aren't coming across very well, these are a lot more vibrant in person...

This is another stack that I pre-washed this weekend.  The grey and black on the bottom will be a cardigan and I think I can get a skirt out of it too. The red & black are the same weave design just one is really small and the other a bit larger.  So the larger design red & black pieces will be a cardigan and the piece with the smaller design a skirt and cardigan. The green & black is a light weight knit and will be perfect for a wrap dress.

So to mix and match with these I'll make skirts and tops and probably one cardigan out of this black knit stack below...
 Here are a couple more patterns I plan to use, just have to decide which fabric for which pattern.

Well let's see if I can make some of my dreams come true.  I hope to get back in my sewing room at least by next weekend and make it lease some of IT.

More later,
