Like April, May has been a total bust as far as personal sewing goes. I did somewhat anticipate this at the beginning of the challenge – I didn’t really expect to have a lot of personal sewing time until the end of summer, and this is turning out about the way I predicted. I am … More Sew Your Kibbe Challenge – May Round Up
April hasn’t been a really great month for me as far as Kibbe sewing/challenge things go. It’s been a really busy month with lots of travel and event planning, and work, and sewing costumes for others. I’ve nearly finished sewing commissioned projects and I really hope this means a return to selfish sewing next month, … More Sew Your Kibbe Challenge – April Round Up
March has been a really slow month for me as far as Kibbe/personal sewing related things go. I did manage to finish the cardigan I started in February, New Look 6330, which was good. I feel like I at least haven’t been totally slacking as far as the whole “sewing challenge” thing goes, though my … More Sew Your Kibbe Challenge – March Round Up
It’s been another crazy busy month for me, but I’ve managed to get sick at the tail end of it, which has totally ruined my sew-jo. It’s really sad because I’d just finalized my plans for the Sew Your Kibbe Challenge when I came down with the plague. Whilst bedridden, I’ve been finding ways to … More Sew Your Kibbe Challenge – February Round Up
So a few weeks ago I posted several examples of how you could plan a capsule for the Sew Your Kibbe Challenge, using Soft Natural as an example. You may have noticed that many of these plans had quite a bit of overlap, not because Soft Natural options are limited (they aren’t), but because I’d … More Sew Your Kibbe Challenge: Final Capsule Plans
I’m pretty sure that the title of this post should come as no surprise given the past three months worth of posts about Kibbe and his style IDs. I’ve just completed posting the main series yesterday morning, and after having gone through all of the Kibbe types in such detail, I’m more certain than ever … More 2019: Sew Your Kibbe Challenge!
With the mindset of focusing more on sewing on this blog, I’ve decided to break up my look back at last year’s goals and my look forward to plans for 2019. My upcoming plans will be posted on the 31st, as is my tradition January 1 (because I need to finish my Sew Your Kibbe … More Sewing Goals 2018 – How Did I Do?
At the beginning of the year I thought about all the things I needed in my wardrobe, I plotted, I planned, I gave myself a year-long sewing challenge. I did something similar last year, and I really enjoyed thinking about making clothes that work in a wardrobe, for multiple occasions, or fill a need in … More Throwing in the Challenge Towel: Sewing for ME!
I feel like I have been chained to my sewing machine! Last year I was asked to make a few skating costumes for other people, which I did gladly because I was quite happy to pick up some extra cash with my sewing. This year – business has increased tenfold! Well, not really, but the … More Pattern Review: BS-03-2013-109
So, while I was initially uninspired by the early preview for the March issue of Burda, I ended up really liking a lot of the styles in this issue, and it seems that having the magazine in my position has inspired a fair bit of fabric acquisition and unexpected project planning. Which I think is … More Drat You March Burda!
