I learned something …

... even though there really wasn't much sewing this last week.  There was a lot of reading and exercising, but not much sewing. I did learn something though! I participated in the "Makers for Fashion Revolution" daily themes organized by @inthefolds on Instagram.  The daily themes made me think seriously about Fashion Revolution Week (April… Continue reading I learned something …

Just a bit of practical sewing…

I am sure you have already met my two buddies - Simon (The Grey) and Sophie (The Skittish).

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle … Refashion? (and my #mmmay15)

In preparing for Me-Made-May'15, I discovered a few things when cleaning up my closet a few weeks ago.  Such as: I still have the shoes that I wore to my wedding almost 27 years ago in a box in my closet.  I find that amazing for some reason.  I put them back safely. I have… Continue reading Reduce, Reuse, Recycle … Refashion? (and my #mmmay15)
