Halter Tee

Last year, I wrote about stitching an engagement present for two of my friends, and the time is coming for them to finally get married! I am honored to be a bridesmaid at their wedding, which also means I get to be a part of a bachelorette trip coming up this month. Now, the dress […]

Sleeve Alterations

Still out here doing everything I can in the crusade against fast fashion. You may recall my friend, Maggie, from her fiber arts meme endeavor. Maggie reached out to me last week, because found a shirt that she really liked except for some rather unflattering sleeves. She offered to buy me dinner for me to […]

Tampa Fresh Foods

My friend Lauren didn’t stop with her fantastic fiber arts tour of Tampa with Stash. Oh no. She also took me to see the TikTok-famous, as-seen-on-TV Tampa Fresh Foods! This art installation was made by British artist Lucy Sparrow and her team. It’s a whole grocery store handmade entirely with felt. It’s so wild. I […]

On the Mend: Dog Damage

I love dogs, but I have had my fair share of crafting casualties due to pups. This, however, was a new one. This is Poppy, the most recent addition to my friend’s family. She is so sweet and as energetic as any puppy can be. Behind this angel face, though, is the heart of a […]

On the Mend: Mattress Stitch

I still have an offer out to fix clothes, as my own small way to fight fast fashion. Over the holidays, the clothes formed to a mending pile once again, so I knew it was time to get back to it! One friend needed fixes on a dress shirt and a hoodie. The chosen mending […]

Ring Bearer Pillow

I’m in the wedding of a couple of dear friends coming up in a couple of weeks (cue panic). You may recall I wore a handmade jumpsuit to my friend Becca’s bachelorette party? Same bride. Becca was talking about getting a couple of generic ring bearer pillows, so I volunteered to make some instead. It […]

Me Made May: Week Four

This last outfit was a doozey! Wanted to finish the top I had started for the Yarn Social Springtime Tee Party and a pair of shorts to go with them. The shorts were easy enough, if I could just follow the directions… The seam ripper came out more times for these shorts than any other […]

WIP Challenge: May Update

It didn’t go as bad as I hoped! If I had had another 24 hours, I would have two less WIPs, I’m sure of it. Me Made May didn’t even throw me off that much. It just upped the Squirrel count considerably, but I did say if that was all that happened, I was a […]

Me Made May: Week Three

Very, very proud of what I accomplished this week! I made a jumpsuit! Which is something I never would have imagined I would do! Never have I even rocked a commercial one, because it seemed like one of those things only flawlessly elegant people could pull off. But when my friend Becca decided her bachelorette […]
