Late last night I finished my first (of 20) #mandolinquilt medallion—just in time to count for #sundayscrapalong2018. This is made from vintage scraps from the ‘20s to the ‘40s, the same era as this cooking pamphlet. ・・・ #patchworkquilting #patchwork #handmade #memade #makersmovement #workingmystashoff #epp #fussycutting #englishpaperpiecing #hexies #hexielove #slowsewing #handmadeisbetter #homesewn #instasew #makeitsewcial #sewyourstash #stashbusting #madetocreate
This block has turned out to be one of our favorites so far! We stitched in some of Mathew’s 💗Loved To Pieces 💗 fabric along with some coordinating solids from the @artgalleryfabrics ColorMasters! ·Block 12: Broken Sugar Bowl  #fw1920eppsal #slowsewing #agfcolormasters #farmerswife #agflovedtopieces #epp #paperpiecesprojects @misterdomestic @artgalleryfabrics
Happy 14th birthday Jamie!  At 14 you are growing into a young man that your dad and I are so proud of. You are dedicated, caring and sensitive and we love how you are always trying to make things better. You’ve become our family game night instigator; the one who says such lovely things that you bring all the adults around you to tears; the one we turn to for karate advice (seriously where do you store all of your knowledge?  How can such a big brain fit in your head?); and our explorer. You still want to be a teacher, and are so dedicated to it, I’m sure you’ll do it. All this kid wanted this year was a coat the same as Newt Scamander’s from Fantastic Beasts. So many hours of work went into it, but I think I nailed it and the look on his face this morning said I did good 😉. @mineyzoroark @stutookphotos #happy14thbirthday #proudmum #newtscamandercosplay #mumsthatsew #imakeourclothes #slowsewing #cleoscottage
I’ve seen a lot of appliqué for kids on instagram, but not a lot for adults. Do you know of anyone I can follow? Post them below! ✨ I’m also thinking of posting some one-of-a-kind appliqué items on Etsy (see my bio for the link). Anyone have some fun and simple ideas of patterns I should try drafting? 💭 #slowliving #slowsewing #appliqué #ruggedrosetextiles #newideas #brainstorm #comfyclothes #hipsterfashion #postitfortheaesthetics #prettythings #prettythoughts #appliqueshirt #whattomakenext #ideas💡 #iliketosew  #sewinglove #sewinglife #instasew #memadeeveryday #makerlife #maker #handmade #handmadeisbetter #craftsposure #creative #consciousstyle #sewing #sewcialists #imakemyownclothes #isewmyownclothes

Next... look at this amazing skill... beautiful bound buttonholes #sewover50  #repost @intostitches • • • • • My dad was an engineer - I wonder if that’s why I like these triangular bound buttonholes so much?  These are a few of the steps. I’m almost finished with an exact replica of the @kennethdking  coat pattern I made for myself in August. This one is for my best friend. All I have left is lining, shoulder pads and buttons - and I have a work holiday to finish up 😊  #tmsslowvember #slowsewing #boundbuttonholes #wearallthecoats #sewersofinstagram #sewistsofinstagram #ilovesewingcoats #memadewardrobe #makersgottamake #sewingtall #ilovetosew #sewover50 #fashionover60 #so50coats #madewithmood #sewersgonnasew @themontlystitch

Hi Everyone-  today is our first day of our blog tour 🙌🏼 and today the blog is featuring the marvelous @nf_merritts // Nicole made the #kastedress from the new @namedclothing book 📖Breaking the Pattern.  The details, the fabric and overall construction of this dress leaves me speechless.  She looks stunning 💕 // Read all about it on our blog today.  LINK In BIO.
Sewing began as a creative outlet for me, but learning about the social and environmental impact of fast fashion through books like this, campaigns like #whomademyclothes and documentaries like @sjdooley‘s have really spurred on my desire to build a more sustainable wardrobe. Will I ever get to a fully handmade wardrobe? Definitely not! (It’s not even a realistic goal for me.) But a few more considered choices and small changes to focus less on fast fashion can definitely be seen as steps in the right direction. I’m also loving how there is a more positive spotlight on shopping second hand at the moment, but that’s a post for another day 😉  #andrewbrooks #clothingpoverty #slowsewing #sustainablefashion #sustainable #memade #ecofriendly #ecofashion #slowfashion #whatimreading #handmadewardrobe #makersgonnamake #makersmovement #bpsewvember
Crocheted beanies 🌿🌿🌿 I am improving and making less mistakes , becoming a bit faster. I made all three in 2 days. The top two were made with a great free tutorial over @makeanddocrew called the 1.5 hour beanie, which I would say is accurate for an adventurous beginner. And the bottom hat ( which reminds me of a beehive 🐝) was another step by step tutorial found on YouTube called The Valdiva crochet hat. So easy!! Hopefully I can venture off to knitting, but crochet is so fun! Pom Pom’s were made using pom Pom makers and left over fabric, I even got the kids involved. 🌿🌿yarn from JoAnn stores called Paton Roving in Classic Wool. The blush pink was a wool blend , I didn’t care as much for it! But highly recommended using Paton wool for an affordable starter yarn. Swipe to see a close up👀
October's block for the #raspberryapplique  quilt is finished! I am really pleased with how it turned out😍  #needleturnapplique #quiltalong #islandbatik #hawaiianquilt #slowsewing #raspberryspool #appliquequilt #applique
WIP. The belt loops on these Lazo trousers are supposed to be topstitched in place. I want them secured in the waistband seam instead so I'm pulling out the seam ripper. I'm using the Tencel from @dgpatterns shop. My first time using tencel and it's pretty wonderful. . #wip #workinprogress #lazotrousers #fabricambassador #slowsewing
Bluse Sofia aus der @la_maison_victor Nr.5/2018 Ich mag den Schnitt. Beim Kopieren hab ich eine Konfektionsgröße kleiner gewählt, weil ich es nicht zu weit mag. Den Bund hab ich so zugeschnitten, das er 5 cm länger ist. Der Stoff ist dunkelblauer #viskosejersey mit #pünktchen #sofialmv #happysewing #
Mina nya #landerpants är här! Sydde dem i stretchdenim från #stoffostil och är överlag nöjd med resultatet. Gjorde #innerpockethack enligt #truebias bloggen, förlängde grenen 2+1,5 cm och designade om hällorna. #sewing #instasew #indiepatterns #swedensews #memade #memadewardrobe #imadeit #imademyclothes #slowfashion #slowsewing #sewingjeans
