    I have been making bags that have been inspired by design details of the show Downton Abbey. This particular bag I created a stamp and came up with the design. I also use bike inner tubes and upcyc…

    I use a walking foot for sticky fabrics. It has been worth the investment many times over! Rebecca S.

    Thanks! I brought my dress with me thinking that a covered bridge might be a great background!

    Recently I took an online Craftsy course called, Sew the Perfect Fit with Lynda Maynard. This dress was part of the fitting process. I loved it!

    Thanks! Since I was working with silk I wanted to make sure that it was going to fit perfectly first before I cut the fabric.

    Thanks! I chose the buttons because for some reason they made me think of the show “Game of Thrones.” I love the show and I could have pictured these on someone’s jacket from it.

    Dscn5746_listing

    I created a jacket in one of Burdastyle’s first sew-alongs. I love the jacket. I did make a few muslins first to make sure that the fit was correct. I was very glad that I did this because I had to…

    Thanks! I can fit a good amount in it. I try to be careful that it isn’t too heavy, but it works.

    I have been scared to sew with knit and took Meg McElwee’s Sewing With Knits class on Craftsy. It is a great class! I highly recommend it. I talk more about it on my blog:

    This is great. I never thought about wearing something as a dress during cold weather and as a jacket during the summer. I have a project that I have been wanting to work on and this gives me some …

    I made a bag for my laptop. I added straps and a pocket to store the cords. It has a woodsy theme with the use of the fabric.
    I write more about it on my blog:

    This looks great on you! Very well fitted. That is one of my favorite parts of sewing. It takes a lot of time to get it right, but it looks incredible afterward!

    Thanks! The piping actually made it easier to piece the front together. It was hard matching up the fabric design as best that I could and the piping gave a little spacer between the fabric edges.
