DIY: Candy Corn Bunting

Last Fall I made some candy corn bunting to decorate my office at work. I wrote up a tutorial and everything and it never did see the light of day on the blog. I did share it back in January at Cut Out and Keep but who really cares about Fall/Halloween decor in the middle of winter?? I patiently waited until the appropriate time to share it all with you.

Completed: Simplicity 1358 Maxi Dress

Fall is my favorite time of year.  While some of y'all have been crying over the end of summer I've been over here happily trading out my sandals for boots....a little to prematurely I might add.  While it's officially Fall here the temps feel otherwise.  It's kind of a challenge getting dressed for work.  The mornings may start off chilly but by midday it's back in the 80's and your shedding clothing.  That's where layers come in.  I never got around to sewing up a maxi dress for the summer so I thought some heavier knit and layering pieces like a jean jacket would make it a good transition piece for the Fall.

DIY: Inspirational Banner

I created this tutorial for Cut Out and Keep's website back in January and never got a chance to share it here on the blog.  Sewing life is stagnant at the moment so now is as good a time as ever to share this easy project with you all.  We need a little inspiration sometimes to get us going or just a little reminder that it's OK, mistakes happen, just pick up your seam ripper and move on.  So if your interested in DIY'ing your own inspirational banner to jazz up your sewing space then please read on.

Completed: Megan Nielsen Tania Culottes

I made these culottes, oohhh, about a couple months ago.  Standing in front of the mirror, Vito sitting next to me, I had a meh moment.  "Are these really my style?" "Where will I wear these?" "Do they make my butt look big?" Vito quickly got up and exited the room.  With every intention of getting pictures for the blog I laid them on my ironing board as a reminder.  Yep, they laid there for two months until I finally got sick of  working around them.  My second go around in front of the mirror had me questioning my antics the months before.  I actually like these a lot.

BANANAA!! Minion Pincushion Tutorial

Minions...they're everywhere!  On my television, on my cereal box, in my Happy Meals...#noshame and in my Pinterest feed.   After their debut in Despicable Me I along with a million others was left wanting to see more of these adorable little guys.  I'm probably the only one who hasn't seen the Minion movie yet.  It grossed $115.2 million in North America alone it's opening weekend!!  So to celebrate these loveable yellow dudes and to add to my Happy Meal collection I made a pincushion.
