A Little About Me!

Hi, I'm Laura! 

I am a mama of two boys, Daniel and Luke. They are my world! You'll probably see them A LOT here, because I plan to share a lot of my sewing projects and creations. They are the primary reason I sew!   
I enjoy sewing, pattern testing, trying new things, cooking, and trying new recipes, so I thought it might be fun to write about these things! This will be my blog to share things I make – whether it be food or clothes.  

I want to give credit to my sister, Leah. A good many of the pictures that I share will be by her! She started taking pictures of my babies when they were born, and aims to take a good picture of all of the kids every week, so we usually get plenty of photos of the kids wearing the things I make. It has been fun!  

I really got into sewing shortly after Daniel was born. I wanted to learn how to sew cloth diapers. I made some diapers, and somehow found out about the sewing world on Facebook, and it has been FUN! I've learned so much over the past few years, and have tried all kinds of new things! It wasn't long before I was devoting most of my free time to sewing baby clothes – I preferred the fit of the things I was making – They actually fit over the cloth diapers and looked good, where a lot of our store-bought things didn’t. So, this is a little about me, and how and why I got started. Now, I'm just hooked.  

I love sewing! I love PDF sewing patterns. I love fabric! 

So, WELCOME

Free and Easy... Sewing the Agnes by Halla!

I love trying new things when it comes to sewing. I love learning new techniques, how to do things different ways, and figuring things out. For the most part, I also enjoy trying new-to-me pattern designers.

This was my first ever pattern by Halla - the AGNES. Yep, I downloaded it a long time ago when it released, but this was my first time ever making it! I downloaded it with intentions of trying it because it was so popular. It may have been popular because it's a FREE pattern (you can get the code to download it in the Halla Facebook Group), or it may have been really popular because it's FREE and REALLY AWESOME. This blog tour gave me a chance to find out for myself!

I participated in this blog tour put together by Kate of Sewing from Scratch... the idea is that we would all sew the same pattern, but make it our own. If we love it as is, we sew it as is. If we want a cute bow (GwenπŸ˜‰), we add a cute bow, if we want to make all the adjustments to get our perfect fit (Sequoi…

The Harmony by Wardrobe by Me

Wardrobe my Me is one of my favorite pattern companies to test for. I always love the result, and the style of the patterns is really what draws me in. They are really beautiful and always end up being favorites for me. The new release is no different from the others... they're already on repeat in my wardrobe! 😍

This is the new Harmony Blouse


This pattern has three neckline options and two hem lengths. There are also several sleeve lengths available for this.  I sewed two of the neckline options during testing. View A has a cute woven detail that ties in the front. View B has a woven detail with little pleats, and a placket that buttons in the front. View C is made with knit fabric, but has a woven bias tape to finish the neckline. This pattern is drafted for knit fabrics, with the exception of the …
