Visible Mending | Hemming Jeans

I’ve started clothes shopping pretty exclusively at thrift stores, especially for jeans. I often find jeans in great condition for just a couple of bucks. Knowing the ecological cost of producing jeans, buying them secondhand makes me very happy. Not only that, but I’ve found myself much more likely to use them, wear them out, and get them dirty when I only spent a handful of dollars. The “fear” of ruining good jeans goes away!Continue reading

A Boro-inspired Pouch & Favorite Thread Weight

As an Aurifil Artisan, my prompt for this month was to create something with my favorite thread weight. When I first signed up for this challenge many months ago, I was torn between two thread weights and I wasn’t sure which one would win out as my favorite. Over the last few months, however, I’ve found myself turning more and more towards the calming rhythm of hand-quilting. Thanks to that, I think I finally haveContinue reading

Fabric Ball | Dog & Baby Toy

I don’t think this spoiled poodle honestly needs more toys, but IContinue reading

Etoile Quilt | Farmhouse Version

Find Etoile in my shop! I started calling this my farmhouse Etoile quilt pretty early on! I think it is a combination of the gingham and soft colors! Whatever it might be, I am smitten with this version! I can’t help but think that it would be right at home in a house designed by Joanna Gaines. Have I mentioned how FAST this pattern is? After I cut out all my pieces I timed myselfContinue reading

Etoile Quilt | Scrappy Version

Etoile releases next week! It is a fun, fat-quarter-friendly quilt pattern that comes together SUPER fast. I mean, we’re talking lightning fast here! I wanted to make a scrappy etoile quilt to show you guys what it looks like with fat quarters! This version was all pulled from stash. I decided to use a single fabric for the background, but the pattern does give fat quarter requirements as well if you wanted to go ALLContinue reading
