What I have been up to....

Let me say, I have been sewing. Just some of my projects have been for my family lately, siblings mostly, and they don't want their pictures up here. =)

But, I will share one of my current sewing projects. It is a 1950s pajama Capri set. Using "Ava Rose" fabric that I bought in Marie-Madeline's latest bundle sale. Plus some brown vintage rick-rack (it is made out of cotton!), pink vintage/retro buttons, and a vintage Butterick pattern. You have the recipe for one cute pair of pajamas! =)  

I'm making view C, the one in the back. My Capri's are made out of the stripe fabric. While the hem binding and strings that lace up the sides are made out of the rose fabric you see above, but in a darker shade of pink. The top will be made out the rose fabric you see above and trimmed with vintage rick-rack.

I am also working on a headband tutorial for this week, which will be featured on another blog! So exciting! I will let you all know when that is up. =)

Um, lets see here. Oh, this week I was to make something from the 1930s, you know for that sewing challenge, but I couldn't find the perfect inspiration. Oh well, this week is the 1940s and I'm going to have a hard time narrowing down my favorites I would like to sew. ;-) And next week is the 1950s! My favorite era!

I'm thinking on doing a post on some of my favorite Old Time Radio Shows, and where I find them on the internet to download, for free! Would any of you be interested in this?



  1. How exciting! I shopped that sale too! It was a good one for sure girlie. I cannot wait to see your vintage inspired pjs's. I think they are gonna be cute!

  2. That "Ava Rose" fabric is so pretty! I like view B, but view C is even nicer!

  3. Hello!

    I follow your blog and I find it very interesting with a lot of exciting ideas!

    I am trying to get the word out about my blog I would love to be able to share it with people. I only have a few posts at the moment, but I plan on posting more. If you wouldn't mind letting your followers know about it, I would be very thankful!

    Keep up the great work!
