Before I Delete these from my IPhone…these photos are just too good not to share with fellow Sewists ( a new popular term for all of us who love to create with sewing). Below, you’ll find just a ‘mix’ of pictures/inspiration/sharing from my recent summer travels. Enjoy!
Whimsy Feline T-Shirt
This new Compass Retreat friend brought smiles to all our faces when she came out with this fun T! I can’t wait to make one like it. I think I’ll try to do it with a combination of couching and rhinestones and reverse applique. Not that I need it – but since on a T is the only place I can have a cat these days…..
Raggy Jeans Bag
Decorative Stitches, Extra Wide Stitches, and couching with these threads added into the lower fringe take this Jeans Bag a step beyond!
‘Fake’ Lace Vest
Though it looks like a black lace vest over a neutral sweater, this lace was actually constructed right on top of the sweater. No question, it will stay ‘in place’!
Needle Felted Belt
Often we overlook Accessories as the place to execute our fiber skills. This belt was felted on a piece of jute-like webbing.
Perforation Yoke Detail Idea
Though this yoke was ‘knit in’ on this garment, I can see doing this perforation with a large punch on a piece of fabric, and piecing it into a sweater or T. Hmmmm Goodwill here I come…..
Why I Sew
This Infinity Scarf reinforces why I sew. How about you? In case you can’t read that price tag – it is $39. for 1/2 yard fabric at the most, and maybe 10′ to sew one seam, YES, you can make this!

I love to get to know sewing fashionistas and share our sewing adventures together!
