Thread Cutterz Ring Review and Giveaway


Hey guys! 

Hope you're gearing up for a killer 4th of July or just a killer weekend if you aren't in the states! I plan on spending the day doing yard work and breaking for mixed drinks and embroidery. I've been doing a lot more stitching on the go, and now I have a great product to share with you to make those impromptu sewing moments as easy as they SHOULD be. 

This little tool is called a Thread Cutterz Ring. Instead of keeping my little nippers in my lap while sewing, I'm able to slip it on and keep track of my cutter at all times. It's been such a time saver not to mention a huge stress relief!

Upcycled Vintage Sheets


Boy, getting back into the groove of blogging has been such a struggle after having Skye, ahem, a year ago. So, I was piling up projects for The Lucky Star Market that I was a vendor for last weekend and staring at all the items made me a tad sad. No, I'm not going all sappy about it, but know that I do love sharing everything I make with the sewing community. I was sad because I gained so much inspiration from the seamstresses I found online, and that's really what pushed me to keep making and failing and making again. I really like it when I get to give something back. Even if it's simply something beautiful for others to enjoy, and that small moment inspired me to take time to write up some new content.  

I'll start it off with a great find from the thrift store... a vintage Disney sheet rocking Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Goofy, and Donald Duck (with those two nephews.. Hewey and dewey right? Is that how you spell Hewey?)  This sheet is such a throw back to childhood and though I had an entire list of other projects I wanted to get done, I tossed that thing aside and made upcycled clothes.

KCW: Romper in Peach and Triangles



I really wish I had the time to sit and pre-purchase awesome fabric that matches the KCW theme because they're always insanely fun and well thought out.
This theme is Wild Thing and this make has absolutely nothing to do with it. I digress...

Boys Button Up in Echino Fabric


Hey!

I'm back to show off this killer boys button up that I made to sell last week. I was realizing the sad state of boys clothing on my Mae & Co. rack and had purchased a yard of this insane Echino fabric last year, but hadn't felt confident about what it should be. I wanted something that I could really show off the intricate design of the pattern. I think this top does a great job, though I could see it as a few other really awesome garments as well.

Jumpers in Upcycled Vintage Fabric



Lately I've been cranking out jumpers like a mad woman- why? Because I'm stocking the Five Little Monkeys shop that I'm offering my clothing in locally! I wanted to really have fun with the items to match the vibe you get when you walk in. It's fun, it's eclectic, it's bright and colorful, and it's in a small business nook with two other vintage stores. So where am I going with all of this? Upcycled vintage fabric.

Happy SPRING! 

Oh man, I've been waiting what feels like forever to say that! Luckily, my son's birthday is the first day of spring and so I get to doubley celebrate it.
