#NaBloPoMo – Handmade Clothes

I love handmade clothes. I’ve even made a few for myself. But I have one problem with making my own clothes- I can never get the finish the way I want. The outsides always look great, but my inside seams ravel. I think I need a serger, unless you have another, less bulky way to Read More …

Introducing Yuletide Magic

I’m excited to share my most recent quilt finish with you all today. I’ve named the quilt “Yuletide Magic” after the panel that I pulled the focus fabric from.

My First Woven Tee
