We know how long it can take to create something (it’s always longer than we think!), so why not give our creations a little something more to make them extra special? Say, the “cherry on top?” Dutch Label Shop contacted me to try out their personalized labels, and they are perfect for making your projects… Continue reading The Cherry on Top – Dutch Label Shop and a Coupon Code
I am stupidly lucky and grateful that I have been able to visit Europe twice in 2 years. I love traveling and DD and I are big fans of hitting up Europe as much as we can. So much great food, culture, booze, architecture, and fashion! On our belated honeymoon trip in 2014, we spent… Continue reading New Dutch Sewing Magazines and Coupon Code!
Hello, sewing world! I have some exciting news to share! Last month, Cali Fabrics (a fabric store based out of San Fransisco, CA) put out a “Calling All Bloggers” post to find sewing bloggers who are interested in partnering with them to contribute to their blog in exchange for fabric. The blog posts will be… Continue reading Exciting News!
Gosh, how time flies! Yesterday was the second anniversary (blogiversary?) of my blog! We are getting into the toddler stage now… I just hope the “terrible twos” don’t translate to sewing blogs. 😉 Just like mothers say about their children, I can’t imagine my life without Sew RED-y. As I said last year, the online… Continue reading Happy 2nd Birthday, Sew RED-y!
Happy February, everyone! I see we have all survived January… high five! Now onto a new month… I’m not sure if February is most people’s favorite month what with most people in cooler climates being sick of winter and looking forward to spring. Plus V-Day isn’t high on the list of favorite holidays from what… Continue reading “Fail February” and It’s Getting Easier to Say Goodbye
HAPPY NEW YEAR!! I hope everyone had a happy and safe celebration. My New Year’s Eve was great. Maybe great for a 90-year-old, but great nonetheless. We ate at our favorite sushi restaurant, Ginza, where the chef gave us free takoyaki (octopus balls… yum!). We seriously go once a week there… sometimes twice a week,… Continue reading Move Over, 2015! Welcome, 2016!
Why hello there! I am back and almost rested after my week in New Orleans. It was a WONDERFUL time full of family, friends, celebrations, and fried seafood. OH, THE FRIED SEAFOOD! I mean, take a look at this beauty: Is that not the most beautiful thing you have ever seen? It hurt so good… Continue reading A Nomination and a Feature
The time has come to say goodbye to some of my handmade garments. I’ve been sewing almost every weekend for the past 4 years and my closet is getting smaller and smaller. DD refuses to give up the little space he has in our closet(s), so that means it’s time to donate. We did some… Continue reading It’s So Hard To Say Goodbye
One year ago today I published my first blog post. And what’s a blogiversary without some introspection? Before Sew RED-y, I was perusing various sewing blogs for inspiration and tutorials and fell in love with the sewing “blogosphere.” I loved how everyone had their own unique style and how pleasant and positive the commenters were.… Continue reading Happy first birthday, Sew RED-y!
Happy 2015, y’all! With a new year comes new hope that it will be better than the last… and that those sewing goals you set for last year will be completed this year (ahem, Sewaholic Thurlow trousers… ahem…). I’ve decided to jump on the bandwagon and do my top 5 hits and top 5 misses… Continue reading A New Year and Some Reflections
