Saturday, March 3rd, 2012

It appears that many ladies don’t bother to drag out the iron while creating clothing.  I will not be naming names or showing photos.  There are many photos across of the blogosphere showing creases where the fabric has been folded and the other wrinkles that are an inevitable when sewing a garment. Maybe these ladies […]

Saturday, August 20th, 2011

        There’s a Make Do and Mend Monday thing going around the Internet.  I think it started at The Cranberry Chronicle. Yes, I know it’s not Monday, but I’ve decided I need to participate in this or I’ll never get any sewing done. I really do not like to mend.  I’d rather make something from […]
