Trello fabrics
I’ve been trying different apps to organize my pattern stash and fabric stash together. I came across this article from Colette pattern about apps to organize your sewing. I tried using the Memento app, but didn’t like the fact that you can’t use it on the computer as well as your phone. Then I came over Camille from Deer and Doe suggestion of using Trello for her fabric stash. I have to be honest, I didn’t find the app or website […]

Sophie’s World #4 – Organising my stash


Iago
Collaboration with Minerva Crafts* Do you have any new years resolutions? I have three that I would like to share with you: No new patterns. If I manage to make three patterns I haven’t made before from my stash I can allow myself to buy one new pattern, that’s it. If I start on another pattern without buying a new one, I then have to make up three from my stash before maybe buying one new. Reduce the fabric stash. […]

Happy new years, everyone!

Tiana
Name: Tiana (from the Princess and the Frog) Pattern: Luzerne coat from Deer and Doe Fabric: Bottle green cotton drill from Minerva Crafts If you do your best each and every day, good things are sure to come your way. Tiana from the movie has a bunch of incredible motivation quotes that I like. My family didn’t have much growing up with my parents being first-generation immigrants.

The amazing Tiana!



Luzerne for Julie
  Pattern: Luzerne coat from Deer & Doe Fabric: Beige garberchino fabric from Minerva Crafts This summer has been a huge summer for my big sister. She turned 30 years, she finished medical school and right away got an internship at the hospital nearest home as she wanted. I’m not surprised because she is incredibly smart and talented! So I needed to give her something special, but what would that be? She has already wished that the whole family take a […]

I couldn’t afford Burberry…


Pattern: Dahlia dress from Colette Patterns & Centaurée dress from Deer and Doe Fabric: Floral navy blue and purple viscose & Floral silky satin I don’t think I would have made my wedding happen without these two strong and independent women in my life. Even though we snap at each other and don’t always agree on everything, we always stick up for one another. I can always count on them to be there for me whenever I need it. So […]

Kevin
Collaboration with Minerva Crafts* Name: Kevin (from Up) Pattern: B6453 from Butterick by Gertie Fabric: Michael Miller flock fabric from Minerva Crafts I love this dress, but most likely because of the beautiful birds that are printed on the fabric.
