Fabric Haul

Today I thought it might be fun to share a recent fabric haul! If I'm not sewing, I'm either sorting through my fabric stash or dreaming of adding new prints to my stash. I absolutely love matching up colors and textures. There is just something about fabric that makes me happy.

Let's jump right in! For starters, I decided to restock this gorgeous blue palette that I've been working with all summer. If you follow me on Instagram, you already know I'm obsessed. I originally picked these up in person at the Portsmouth Fabric Co. in New Hampshire, but this time around I did a quick online order. They remind me of classic seaside New England. Especially with those adorable whales!



Next up I tried out some new fall inspired colors. I don't know about you, but I'm dying for some cool crisp fall weather. It has been a hot and humid summer in our area, and I'm ready for the leaves to change, the air to cool off, and some fun fall activities.  I'm hoping to co…

August 2018 Favorites

As a part of a new series, I'm sharing my favorite things (both sewing & non-sewing items) each month. I get tons of questions on social media about the fabrics, tools, and supplies I use in my shop, so I thought it would be fun to do a monthly round-up of everything I currently love! My life isn't 100% sewing, so I'll be throwing in some extras too, like a new book I can't put down, what I'm sipping on while I work, or a new YouTube channel I can't get enough of. And of course, my favorite sewing supplies, tools, fabrics, shops, tutorials, patterns, and more. Fun, right?! 
Let's jump right in! Here are my favorites from last month (in no particular order!).
1. Olfa frosted non-slip acrylic ruler: This thing is AMAZING. I've been using the same cutting ruler for 13 years. Yes, that's right 13 years. The markings were rubbing off, it was constantly slipping out of place, and eventually one day my daughter snapped it in half. And it's a good thi…
