Saying Goodbye to the 60th

With September beginning tomorrow, Halloween and all things pumpkin flavored are on the mind. But come September 5th, Disneyland’s Diamond Celebration for their 60th anniversary will finally end. Yes, the Diamond Celebration lasted well over a year, but it was such fun. With our visit to Portland coming up, we popped in to experience the 60th […]

September is National Sewing Month

I have a couple of holidays that are really special to me.  Easter because it symbolizes the rebirth – not just a Christian rebirth but also how the earth is budding & blooming in Spring.  Then Christmas is also a favorite. I love Christm…

Lessons from My First Job: Jenny Rushmore

Many people who have creative businesses landed in their current profession unexpectedly. Even if you went to art school or business school my bet is that it would have been hard to predict what your current careers would look like. In this series on my blog I’m exploring what that winding path looked like for…

EMERSON SEWALONG DAY 1

Welcome to day one of the Emerson short and pant sewalong. I am going to be sewing up one pair of crop pants in this great lightweight denim, and a pair of the shorts in some navy striped linen that I am really excited about . All of the directions are the same for both except for the hem width so I will be jumping back and forth between the two depending on which one shows better in pictures. We will do the whole sewalong in three days. It’s an easy sew, so it will go quick. I won’t be going over printing your pattern or assembling / cutting it out, so go ahead and do that first and come back when you are ready to get sewing. Step 1 – Before starting, make sure that you have transferred all notches and symbols from your pattern pieces to your fabric. I used a few different techniques this time around, but use whatever is easiest for you. I like to just snip the notches. Just be sure to make a small snip (about 1/4″) so that it stays within the 1/2″ seam allowance. I use a disappearing fabric pen for the dots and then my […]

More Miscellaneous Notions

Sometimes “spring cleaning” can last all year ’round. It’s probably easier that way, tackling one drawer or one closet at a time instead of attempting to clean the entire office or the entire house all at once. This week, we’re … Continue reading

Create Outdoor Patio Lighting Without a Pergola (Renter Friendly!)

One thing that can really make or break an outdoor space is lighting. Lighting is what really sets the mood as a hot summer night starts to wind down and a cool breeze (hopefully) begins to blow. Our last house had a pergola already built on the property, so it was easy enough to string some globe patio lights around the edge of it and call it a day. But…

Video PREGUNTERO 1 ¿Cuantos puntos hacer?



Hola a todos los seguidores y seguidoras que nos acompañáis día a día en este canal de costura y diy!!!!!  En agradecimiento a todos vuestros comentarios, apoyo y cariño, os traigo algunas novedades para esta nueva etapa que comenzamos tras las vacaciones, en el blog y sobretodo en el canal de youtube!!!!


Una de estas novedades son los vídeos PREGUNTEROS!!!! No, no me he vuelto loca, los he llamado los videos pregunteros, porque todas las semanas intentaré publicar un video contestando a las preguntas que me hacéis!! Comenzaré contestando las preguntas que mas se repiten, pero poco a poco iré resolviendo todas vuestras dudas. Se me ha ocurrido hacerlo a través de vídeo porque es muy difícil explicar determinadas cosas por escrito, así que de esta manera lo veréis de forma didáctica! Así que podéis preguntar lo que os apetezca! Dudas de costura, ayuda para prendas o lo que no os deje dormir por la noche!!! Intentaré responderos a todo lo que pueda.


La pregunta que he elegido para este primer video va sobre punto, hoy las tejedoras estáis de enhorabuena. Hace tiempo compartimos este vídeo de unos gorros de lana en el canal, y a raíz del éxito que han tenido hemos publicado más prendas hechas con dos agujas. Una de las preguntas más típicas que me hacéis es: cuantos puntos montar con mi aguja y mi lana. Pues bien, en el vídeo os enseño a calcular los puntos y hacer la prenda de lana a vuestra medida con vuestra aguja y vuestra lana.


Ojalá os sirvan estos videos explicativos!!!! Y espero todas vuestras dudas en comentarios del vídeo que os comparto en el canal de YOUTUBE!!!!! para el vídeo de la semana que viene elegiré alguna de vuestras preguntas. Pero por favor, dejar todas las preguntas en los comentarios del video, y no en otras redes sociales, porque sois muchas y muchas redes, y me es muy complicado leeros a todas y responder a todo. De esta forma, para el próximo video preguntero, me meto en los comentarios del vídeo y elijo una de las dudas!!!!

Un besazo enorme, gracias por estar ahí siempre, y hasta el próximo!!!!

UN BESAZO ENORME 😀

Tutorial: Tinny with Trappe ‘tucks

For the MaanKids shoot for MonDepot, I made a little Tinny dress for Ava in a stunning peach voile. I added four pintucks to the front. They are super simple, but add a bit of sophistication to the dress (I think). In a halfbaked attempt to be hashtagfriendly, I decided to give the pleats a name. […]
