Dia de los Muertos Apron (delantal)


I had been waiting to be inspired before cutting up my Dia de los Muertos fabric.  I waited a year.  Inspiration hit this week and I made this cute and quirky reversible apron.  PLEASE CONTACT ME IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO PURCHASE.  All seams are finished, two lined pockets on front and one on reverse, button closure at neckline, fabric is pre washed and  shrunk, hand sewn details like fabric yo-yo’s and buttons.  Fits small to medium frame.  Perfect for celebrating Mexican holidays!  To see all the photos check out my flicker set   Thanks for looking…..:)

She’s All Ruffles & Roses

I am really enjoying my new sewing studio.  A well lit and open space which allows me to play and create to my heart’s content.  This little outfit is in anticipation of my little grandniece due in May.   The pattern for this reversible dress and ruffled diaper cover is from The Tie Dye Diva.

Sewing a Purse Insert/Organizer

I have been wanting a purse insert/organizer for some time.  I hate having to take all my things out of one purse to put in another.  This seems like such a clever way to keep everything in ‘one’ purse and then just move the insert from purse to purse.  I drafted my own pattern and made this prototype.  It has lots of pockets, a key fob and a sturdy bottom.  Next one I’ll put some sort of handle to make it easier to life out of snug purses.   I’ll have to tweak the pattern a bit but I think I’m going to enjoy my new ‘purse’!

My Dream Sewing/Craft Studio

Well my wonderful husband has finished building my beautiful new sewing table with plans we pulled off the internet via Pinterest and Ana White Homemaker.  There were a few glitches along the way and a couple things he still has to work out (like sanding down the legs a bit ).  He also put up a matching pegboard for my sewing tools and i made a fabric covered bulletin board to match.  A few more decorating touches and my sewing/craft studio will be everything I’ve dreamed of!  Next time a tour of my almost finished art/darkroom studio upstairs 🙂
