love the birdie sling

I made the Amy Butler Birdie Sling for my Mother -in-law, she chose the colors and fabric, fantastic Amy Butler choice don't you think?
I enjoyed using this pattern, it took some time but the finished product is well worth it, the bag is lined and has fusible fleece inside so it has a nice weight to it. The strap is one piece so it fits nicely on your shoulder and you don't have that one pesky strap that always falls off to deal with.

For those of you who are not familiar with Amy Butler and her products I would encourage you to check out her web site, its full of sewing inspiration.

new style soft shoes

I was ispired by a customer to create a new style shoe, and this is one of them, I started with a free pattern that I downloaded from this web site, and then modified it to the new style I wanted, you can adjust this pattern in many ways, let your creativity be your guide.

easy wrap skirt

sorry I have been away.....busy sewing and not posting.

this wrap skirt is a perfect first sewing project or for a beginner...something that looks store bought and not homemade.

Tip-when making clothing, pay close attention to your fabric choices it will make or break the homemade or store bought look.

I am not a mathmatician and this was simple...really

backpacks by rae

backpacks for the boys because..... I didn't think they needed to be carrying their sister's purses anymore......

easy pattern to follow, I added a few of my own touches like lining and seam binding, took a few hours but very satisfying results....give it a try.

I will be purchasing a selling license from rae soon and will have backpacks to buy on my etsy shop, check back.
