We’re in December and you know what that means! It’s time to frantically craft or buy gifts for those you love. Hooray for the Christmas (and Hanukkah) season! For the next few Thursdays, I’ll post things I’ve made for others for the holidays. Today features Christmas 2012’s gifts – OWL MADNESS!!! I think owls are… Continue reading Throwback Thursday: Owl Gift Ideas
Ahhh, the Sewaholic Renfrew. Beloved by all and probably the most sewn cake pattern out there. It’s definitely my most-sewn pattern for sure, including some Franken-patterns (mixing 2 different patterns for a new kind of beast!). It’s an easy enough pattern to sew and Tasia’s instructions are always amazing and usually teach me a new… Continue reading Throwback Thursday: A Parade of Renfrews
Trends. There are some trends that I won’t touch with a 10-foot pole (sorry, Peter-Pan collars) and there are some that I’ll jump all over. When the song, “What Does the Fox Say?” came out, foxes instantaneously became trendy. Unfortunately, I’m not a huge fan of the song, but I am grateful that a cute… Continue reading Throwback Thursday: What Does the Dress Say?
I’d have to say the absolute best thing about sewing your own clothes is being able to make something that is so totally you. You find the perfect fabric, pair it with the perfect pattern, and magic happens. Just the mere act of wearing it can spread joy to others. Or, in my case, make… Continue reading Throwback Thursday: The Little Mermaid Dress of My Dreams

I’m gonna rock out with my awesome new costume and enjoy not being judged for dressing up for the night! So it’s Thursday, and as you… Continue reading Throwback Thursday: The Stuff of Nightmares
Halloween is approaching fast so I’m sure most of you have seen some costume ideas being kicked around the blogosphere. I’m currently working on my costume for this year (which I swear will be more awesome than the following), but thought I would share something I made for the Renaissance Festival last winter. I know,… Continue reading Throwback Thursday: Huzzah for Costumes!
One year ago this Sunday, I married my best friend and father to my fur and feather babies. It was a crazy day filled with love, family, friends, stress, exhaustion, and cake! What more could I ask for? But this TBT post isn’t about me getting married, it’s about all the wedding sweatshop slave hours… Continue reading Throwback Thursday: Our DIY Wedding
DD’s and my wedding anniversary is approaching! One year ago on October 12, the magic happened. Well, maybe not magic but it was a lot of fun/stress/relief/more fun/exhaustion! That’s how weddings go. But for this TBT I’m not sharing the projects I made for my wedding day (pssst, stop by next week for that!). Instead,… Continue reading Throwback Thursday: Bridal Brunch Dress
Happy Thursday! I bet you can’t say that 5x fast… silky purple preggers dress! First off, let me say that I am not currently nor ever was “preggers.” This dress just kind of makes me look that way, thanks to the empire waistline. This TBT features a make from 2012 – Butterick 5639, view B:… Continue reading Throwback Thursday: Silky Purple Preggers Dress
