Sew Together Bag Review

It just so happened that I had a space of time without a “have to” project to sew, so I decided to try out a bag pattern.  The Sew Together Bag by Sew Demented caught my eye the first time I saw it, and everytime since.  Recently I ordered some Liberty of London fabric withContinue reading “Sew Together Bag Review”

An Over The Top Outfit

When you sew, sometimes you can afford to go all out!  (Especially when you refashion and have a large fabric stash.) This is our interpretation of the Over The Top: Holiday Challenge from Pattern Revolution.  It all started with an Uptown/Downtown Dress we made.  Annie’s cousin saw and loved Annie’s Uptown/Downtown Dresses, so we decidedContinue reading “An Over The Top Outfit”
