I spent much of this summer (and last summer too) sewing swimwear! From never having sewn a swimsuit before, to being considered somewhat of an expert, I learned just about everything there is to know! And I want to share some some vital things I learned with you before you start. Because sewing your own … Continue reading So you think you want to sew swimwear?
I have a habit. A swimwear sewing (or at the very least, a swim-fabric-hoarding) habit. And I have Cali Fabric to blame thank. I lived in San Francisco a few summers ago, and my maiden voyage to their bricks-and-mortar shop, The Fabric Outlet, was just in time for a super swim fabric sale. Table upon … Continue reading Pink Giraffe Swimwear
Starting my own business has been a dream of mine for some time now. Being my own boss means I get to make all the calls, which is a good and a bad thing. On one hand, I get to decide what work I take on and when I want to do it. On the … Continue reading Starting My Own Business
Let me start this post off by saying that yes, I am 33, and yes, I still want to play dress-up. But running around town in a full-on princess dress just doesn't cut it in "civilized" society unless you're under the age of 6. Not fair! But thankfully, sewing has given me the freedom to … Continue reading The Little Mermaid Inspired Yoga Set
I don’t often make New Year’s Resolutions, but for once I was ahead of the game and made my resolutions for 2017 last year!

I usually struggle to find workout … Continue reading New Year, new… workout gear!
I am currently on a sports bra making kick! Honestly, I have sewn for years but never knew that making your own undergarments would be this easy or rewarding. Like many of us out there, I have a pile of patterns sitting in my sewing room that I intend to sew up when I have … Continue reading Greenstyle Endurance Sports Bra
Halloween is just around the corner and if you're anything like me your costumes are still just a thought in the back of your mind. I'm usually a last minute girl and I rarely, rarely sew my kids costumes. If it can be done in under an hour- then I'll jump right on it! This … Continue reading Halloween Costumes with Cali Fabrics
Hi again, everyone! I'm super excited to share my next project with you... this one puts a smile on my face and a fry in my tummy. 🙂 When I was perusing the Cali Fabrics knits, the French Fries on Black Stretch Brushed Jersey caught my eye. Heck, it caught my eye, my heart, AND … Continue reading You Eat What You Wear
I know that some of you may be planning your fall sewing ( great for you but.... I'm not going to join your party just yet...) but for those of you....who, like myself will have to be dragged into fall kicking and screaming, I thought I'd share my new swim suit and beach bag … Continue reading Still Summer
So, there's this fabric on the website that I kept coming back to. I'd add it to my cart and then walk away for a couple hours and then look at it again. I thought on it for a couple of days actually. I loved the fabric but I didn't have a plan for it so … Continue reading Brushed Poly for Everyone!
