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.

Do you recognize this?

Next week I will be sharing a big "give back" initiative I have been working on the last few weeks, but until then, this is just a quick post today to give you a small glimpse into some of the fabrics I have been you recognize this one at all?

I'll give you a hint....its a pretty recognizable print from a large home goods retailer and it has just been sitting in a box in my linen closet for at least the last 5 years.

I'll be back tomorrow to share the lovelies I found on Etsy this week with Tuesday Treasury #9!

Happy Monday!


  1. I have no idea what fabric that is???

  2. Anxious to hear about your 'give' back' :)
