Deco Pillows

Made these pillows for a customer recently.  He is doing a spare room in a vintage decor, and he provided the fabric/materials.These are 14" stuffed pillows with a thin linen vintage cowboy print for the front, and chocolaty brown vinyl for the back and a 3" skinny brown suede fringe for the trim.  He texted me after he got them home and "placed" them and said he thought they looked great.  So, I'm happy.  :)…See More

Profile Information

I am an awesome:
I have been married for 27 yrs. to my hard working hubby, have 7 beautiful children, and have been home educating since my oldest (now 26) was 4yrs. I have been sewing since I was in grammar school. I never had lessons but muddled my way through and continue to learn something new every day. I have recently learned to crochet and have reacquainted myself with embroidery. I also love to read, research, and teach. Seeing the joy and excitement someone, especially children, gets from learning something new is a thrill for me.
My sewing interests are:
garment, drapery, home decor, quilting, cross stitch, embroidery, hand sewing
My sewing machine(s):
I have a Viking Huskvarna Constitution 200, which I've had for 21yrs. and has just recently gone on the blink, but I think it's only the power cord. I need to get it checked.

My mother-in-law gave me her old Bernina 2000DE overlock, which I still haven't completely figured out. It works but has some quirks that she is apparently familiar with, but I am not. :)

I also have a Huskylock 1003 LCD which I bought off of Ebay, but again, I'm trying to familiarize myself with it. I have never used sergers before, but have a goal to work on these machines this summer. :)
I am interested in patterns such as:
I have always found myself buying first Butterick, then McCalls, and occasionally a Simplicity pattern. I have yet to try Vogue or Burda.

My Newest Additions!

It's funny the things you can get excited about!  Well, I'm excited about 3 new additions to my sewing room.  

First up is this lovely pair of vintage 1950's Wiss Model C Pinking Shears.

Even though it' obvious that they have been used, they cut beautifully.…

Making Piping for Customer's Cushion Covers

Posted on June 20, 2013 at 12:19pm 0 Comments

 

Cutting, piecing, sewing, 36 yds of piping.  In my best pirate voice, "...pin it down, stitch it around, 35 yds of piping on the floor..."

I've sewn a lot over the years but I've never done piping before and it's very time consuming, especially on a project this size.  I cut and pieced the…

Hi Ags,  Re, the time frame on hats.  Guess I spend about 10 to 12 hours on  a hat plus more time to make the attached flower. Generally I set aside 2 days to make a hat and 1day to just make flowers. Since I sell my hats at craft shows I do spend the time be sure every detail is OK.  I think your gardening accessories is a good idea.  Your daughter will love it.  Thanks for your comments.

Hi Alie, I received my fabric right on time and I love it. I have a project all planned out for it as soon as I get these civil war dresses done. Thank you so much. Derenda

Hi Alie,

I drew your name in the garment-fabric swap. I'd like to ask if you have any special requests or perhaps any special dislikes in fabric. I wouldn't like to send you something you hated!

Best,
Robyn

Hi Alie, sorry it took me all day to get back to you. The pattern number is 3544. I made some patterning changes, added facings for sewing buttons and buttonholes. Also for some reason the style lines at the shoulders of the apron are different on the pattern pieces and the picture on front of the envelope. The real look is shown on the direction page though. I smoothed out the line to get a look more like the pattern envelope.

Hi Alie, the apron is a Simplicity pattern. It is one of their retro reissues. I don't have the number right now. Do you want me to look it up? Joyce
