Bubble Sleeve Dress Sewing Tutorial

Someone special is featured on the blog today — my sister! She recently graduated from high school and found the perfect dress to wear… but it was WAY expensive. We talked it through and decided it wouldn’t be too hard to make!

Striped, Midi By Hand London Kim Dress

I recently came across a sewing pattern on Instagram that I fell in love with immediately. The By Hand London Kim Dress had the sweetest curved square neckline, and a perfectly fitting princess seam bodice. I immediately knew I had to try it.

DIY Linen Duvet and Shams

Long time no blog! I’m not sure why, but it has been a while since I’ve blogged any projects, even though I have been creating and sharing over on my Instagram. As Covid-19 cases started to reduce in the start of the year and more of our friends and family are vaccinated, we are getting more visitors, and we decided we really needed to step up our guest room game!

Velvet Reversible Christmas Stocking Sewing Tutorial

We are only one week away from Christmas! Kyle and I are heading out to Chicago to see my family this weekend, and we couldn’t be more excited. Our plans include baking far to many cookies, designing an elaborate gingerbread house, and generally enjoying being together!

Thanksgiving table decorations

If there is anything we can all get behind this year, it’s that we are all getting in the holiday mood early!

It’s a simple premise for a show, but the characters are just so incredible and the writing cracks me up constantly. With numerous Emmy’s and thousands of fans, I’m not alone. That’s why this year I decided to dress up as one of the best, and most outrageous, characters from the show – Moira Rose! Continue reading “DIY Schitt’s Creek Moira Rose Costume”

My Two Favorite, No-Pattern DIY Face Masks

No matter where you live in the US, it’s safe to say we have adopted mask culture. I’m personally happy to wear a mask. It keeps other people safe from me if I am potentially sick and don’t know it, and me safe from others if they happen to be sick. It’s an easy way to take care of one another and ourselves, and there is no reason we can’t make them a part of our ensembles!
