My husband and I love thrifting and along the way we have come across some wonderful vintage fabrics.

When I began sewing clothes in August, I put down my knitting needles and became a bit obsessed with sewing. This weekend as we prepared to drive across the state to see our son compete in his final state speech and debate meet, I decided to find something new to knit! I ordered the Curls […]

I’ve been taken quite a few orders for these pillows locally and I’ve made most of them with a combination of cotton and flannel fabric making them extra cozy. Each pillow is stuffed with Montana […]

I’m in love with Colette Patterns and Robert Kaufman cotton flannels.
