Sewing is a lot like life...sure, there are patterns for just about everything, but in order to love what you do, or love what you make, you have to change the pattern to make it your own regardless if the change is a fraction of an inch or the length of a yard. And more often that not, those choices you make to change the pattern do not work out exactly the way you hope. It can be frustrating and challenging, and sometimes you have have to rip it all apart at the seams and start completely over. Which requires patience. A lot of patience. But in doing so, you create something that is far more rewarding, and far more beautiful, then what you started with.

The perfect afternoon?

I got to spend the afternoon alone today..... sewing.....just me, my iTunes, a glass of ice cold diet coke (okay, maybe three glasses) and these two sweet baby girls.

(aren't they the SWEETEST?!)

I think what I enjoy about sewing the most, is finding a fabric like this one...

And this one.....

Or this one...

And especially this one....

And then turning them into this!

And this!

And this!

And especially this!

  1. Nice! Perfect day...time to yourself, diet Coke, puppies... and new handbags! You are the luckiest woman on earth. I wouldn't even be selling the handbags Emily, I'd be matching them to my outfits every day, or going out to buy new outfits to match the bags!
