When one of my fellow blogger and designers told me about this tour idea I jumped right on board!  One complaint we get at times is that the directions are too detailed (yes, we get that often).  Everyone is at a different level, those that are intermediate and advanced seamstresses, they are going to do it there way because they know how.  One of the great advantages of .pdf patterns and indie designers is we can write patterns OUR way.  It also gives beginners the confidence and support to jump in and give it a shot. It is rather sad to see just how judgmental people can be at times towards beginners of even someone who doesn’t use heirloom techniques etc.   I’m not saying you should lie to someone who is already trying to sell stuff and not having luck and asking for advice, but to remember people have feelings, there is such a thing as tact and WE ALL START SOMEPLACE.

So today I am going to share a little about where I started.

I won’t lie crafting is in my blood.  By age 8 one grandmother had taught me to crochet and the other to knit.  Growing up I watched both my grandmothers and mother create.  When ever I had a chance to grab a ball of yard or a piece of fabric I snatched it right up.  I did do basics as a child including sewing rice bags and shorts as well as how to thread and use a sewing machine, sew by hand and bead.  My Grandmother relied on their sewing to sell at markets though so I didn’t really get to explore beyond that.

When I was 18 my ex husband got me a brand new Singer sewing machine… I made one not so square quilt and a Harry Potter cloak before I killed it.  On that note I do not recommend newer plastic Singers, I have killed 3 in less then 5 years, the vintage ones are awesome though!  A few years later he got me a basic Bernina Bernette (that I used up until last May and is now my spare and sews perfectly).  After I had my oldest son I started sewing the occasional baby pouch sling but it wasn’t until 6.5 years ago after the twins were born that I finally really started to sew.  I tried my first tissue paper pattern ever… it turned out cute but WAY to big, lol. New Look 6688 Toddler Dress Pattern Review

I also started exploring with creating my own patterns with out a pattern.  This is the first real pattern I drafted 100% and has quite the story behind it.  This was back when e-book/.pdf patterns were very new and a few of my friends suggested I make it a pattern for sale because at the time there were not other round neck dress patterns unless you looked at vintage tissue patterns.  I posted to a forum asking what the ladies thought while many were very excited one wasn’t so much and had some very discouraging comments about how it was nothing special and you could get lots of tissue patterns for .25 at the thrift shop, so I decided to pass.

Well 2 months later guess what she released in her pattern shop for $7.95?  Yep, a nearly identical dress that was a HUGE hit at the time and made her a lot of money.  To be honest that experience discouraged me for a long time.  BUT obviously I finally over came that last year and I look at the time I waited as the time I used to expand my skills.  I will be honest I had good skills and people would have liked it but I didn’t have the types of skills I needed to really produce quality patterns.  Two of a kind dresses :)


One of the things I wanted to talk about is that we all start somewhere!  This red dot version may have nicely turned and pressed curves but if you look at the top stitching on the yoke, while not bad, it’s also not quite straight either.  Then there is there is the muslin version I did first… My first drafted pattern! Mini Boden style retro baby dress!

Mini Boden Style Retro Baby Dress
The yoke curves aren’t turned as nicely, they aren’t pointy but they aren’t nice and round either and my button holes aren’t quite even.  Even now 6 years latter guess what… I still have stuff that just doesn’t turn out!  But I everyone has to start somewhere!  So don’t get discouraged, set mini goals that matter to YOU.

The more you sew the better you will get.  You know what?  I ENJOY gathering by hand, sewing button holes and doing a proper finished hem.  Yep your read that right… I like doing those things!  I enjoy the challenge, knowing I can do it and seeing just how far I have come.


Pictures like these will keep me at my machines for years to come… KenzieTurnsOne-(5 of 167)

I sew because I enjoy it, I love fabric and I love creating.  The look of pure joy on my 5 kids faces when they see something I made is enough to keep me happy no matter what other people thing!  Next thing you know you will be looking at stuff and thinking, wow, did I really do that?  Being able to see something we love, but cant justify the cost, and being able to go home and make something inspired by it is amazing.  I can’t tell you the joy I felt when I got asked in the store if I bought or made a very adorable set of Gymboree dresses… just the THOUGHT they that thought I was capable of that after seeing other stuff I had made left me in a daze.

When I am sharing with ladies new to sewing I often see their eye’s glaze over and the thought ‘wow, I could never do that’ going through head but guess what?  We all start somewhere ;).

One of my new guilty little pleasures ;) Jammicures!

One of my new guilty little pleasures is Jamberry nail wraps. This is my newest set I am IN LOVE!!!! I love the look of them on even more then when I original ordered them and they don’t chip like polish when I am sewing.

With 5 kids, the never ending cleaning of my house and my sewing business most polish doesn’t last more then a few days.  While I love going in and getting a gel manicure I don’t have the time or the money to do it often, and acrylics are pricey and also tear up your nails.  A set of wraps runs $15 and you can get about 2 mani’s & 2 pedi’s out of it which is the cost of a polish mani in the salon. Plus they even have kids ones including mommy & me sets for those of you it girls ;).

Jamberry nail wraps are the perfect solution!  I know many of my nurse friends have similar issues with polish. They are easy to remove (quick soak and pull off) with out damaging your nails.


They have everything from the wildest new trendy prints…  (yes florals, chevrons & more!)


To classic solids and French tips. The French tips look perfect but are easy to do at home and not harmful to your nails like acrylics AND don’t chip right away like polish.  They are a great professional option.


My party is going to be open until June 25th, order 3 sheets of wraps and get the 4th free! You can get 2 full mani’s and 2 full pedi’s out of 1 sheet for the price of 1 regular polish French mani.  I’m not going to lie, they probably won’t go on great the first time but don’t get disappointed!  I have super curved nails which are some of the hardest to do and I just watched a few videos on YouTube that made a HUGE difference.  This is only my 3rd set but they look better/ go on easier every time, I get tons of compliments on them and even on my super curved nails they last at least a week. They currently only ship to the US & Canada.

Select Kymy’s Party at checkout and help me earn a discounted sheet ;). I already bought a bunch and hubby says no more full price right now, lol. They have juniors that are great for little girls too!

Zulily ‘National Sewing Machine Day’ Sale!

*This post contains affiliate links that help support this blog.  That being said I only share links on products I own, or would personally purchase.*

I will be honest I have NO CLUE if it is truly ‘a day’, but for us crafters it might as well be!  The sale itself won’t go live until 6am PST I believe, so they haven’t announced anything about what is included, but this is the teaser they have up…

zulily sew sale

They have a variety of stuff listed and I heard from a little birdie that a few of the items come from one of my favorite pattern AND fabric designers, Patty Young/Mod Kid.

One thing to keep in mind is the shipping is slow (they tell you how slow on each item) and unless it arrives damaged all sales are final.  This is how they keep prices low.

I have been buying shoes from them for years and have been excited to see them bring in more made in the USA products including from small shops on sites like Etsy!

So go check it out!  Their sales tend to sell out fast.

UPDATED: Craftsy Sewing Classes Sale, Today Only!


Apparently it appears that there is some sort of glitch with some browsers :(. In IE 10 it shows up with 64 sewing classes on sale…


But Google Chrome is only showing me 1…


And finally the windows IE app on windows 8, which is the IE mobile/touch app as well as the browser on my cell phone show 0…

ie touch

I’m not sure why, it does it with or without the affiliate link, logged in or logged out, but I would recommend using IE on a computer if you are having issues.

crafsty sale


I was excited to get this email, I have purchased about a dozen Craftsy classes on sale now and LOVE them!  Today only (5/17/2014) get 1 of the selected sewing classes on sale for 40% off making most of them $30 or less.  Hurry! This offer disappears Saturday, May 17th at 11:59 PM MST. This offer applies to one class only per customer.

*This post contains affiliate links that help support this blog.  That being said I only share links on products I own, or would personally purchase.*

If you have a larger, smaller or simply harder to fit bust then the average women, this class, “Adjust the Bust” with Kathleen Cheetham, is extremely helpful!  It covers both FBA (Full Bust Adjustment) and SBA (Small Bust Adjustment).  She explains it well, explains the math and why and how it needs adjusted where.  This is one of my favorite sewing classes I have purchased.

Is your chest not your hard to fit part?  There is also a “Back, Neck & Shoulders” and “Waist & Hips” class too.  All 3 fitting classes are on sale for $29.99 for today only.

paymentp paymentb

One other class I have started recently is the “Sewing Designer Jeans”.  I am excited to try this out and love that I can watch the classes just a little at a time, at my own pace.  It makes the idea of making my own jeans a LOT less intimidating.


Another class that some of my amazing fans have recommended is the “Beginner Serging” class.  If you haven’t used one before, and don’t have friends or family with one they can be very intimidating.  The feed back I got about this class is it is a great way to but the fear a side and pull that serger out of the closet (seems pretty common, lol) and start falling in love with it!  Since different sergers/overlockers work differently you will want to make sure you have your manual.  At $29.99 it is cheaper then most in shop classes and you can watch it as many times as you want forever!

Princess Seam Full Bust Adjustment (FBA) Tutorial

Earlier this year I got a chance to help out Hayley of Mouse House Creations with her Ladies Caroline Dress.  Hayley herself is petite with average proportions.  So when her testers with larger busts were having fit issues I knew what the problem was and offered to make up a tutorial for a full bust adjustment.  Today I am going to share the same FBA tutorial with you!  Proper sizing/fit is key to a stunning finished garment, as someone with a cup size WAY past DD (try 34H/I) I can attest to what a huge difference a proper FBA can make.

Princess Seam Full Bust Adjustment

(FBA) Tutorial

Start by measuring over your bust down under your arms and back up and over your bust on the other side.  Then measure across the fullest part of your bust like normal.  If your over bust measurement is 2″+ smaller than your bust measurement, pick your bodice size based on your over bust for the bust/chest measurement and then do an FBA. The reason for this is simply adjusting a larger size down will alter the lines, shape and fit.


Pieces as is.

EYMM FBA Tutorial #eymm #diy

Mark bust point on both pieces. With seam allowance a size 12/14 is about 11″ down from the highest shoulder point and you want the mark 1/2″ from the edge of the side.


Match up your pieces like sewn, but transfer your bust point mark over, placing it also 1/2″ from the edge.


Now, draw a line down 1/2″ along the edge of your princess from the seam. Then, draw a straight line from bust point to the middle of the arm opening and another from bust to the side seam about 2″ down from the point where the side seam & arm holes meet.



Next, make 2 cuts with the first starting at the side seam and stopping about 1/16″ from the bust point. Then, starting from the bottom edge go up through the bust point, stopping 1/16″ from busting through the arm seam. You should now have 1 pivot point at the arm, and one at the bust.


Now, you want to take your bust/over bust and that is how much room we need to add. Mine is 4″. Since there are 2 side panels that means I need to add 2″ per side. **NOTE** Some tops have more ease in them and you may not need to add the full 2″.  This one does not, so I need to add the full amount**

At the bust point, use a ruler to add the amount needed and tape from the bust point pivot to the small 1/2″ strip keeping that the full width needed.


Next, you will want to cut your long skinny section into a few pieces and spread them out as shown here. I did NOT need 4″ added to the waist so I tapered it in. This added only 1″ total to the waist instead. Make sure to keep the fullness closer to the bust point.

Tape in place, filling the entire vertical gap from the arm to the waist seam. You can fill with scrap paper or clear packing tape.


Draw a line connecting the 2 halves of the original bust point mark and continue to the edge of the paper.


Cut along that mark and close and tape the original line to the side seam.  Fill your new gap with tape/paper.


With a soft flexible measuring tape, measure from the top point of the princess seam on your new piece to the waist. Repeat with the original front center piece. For mine, there was a 3″ difference.

Then, cut across your center piece at the bust point and again about 1.5″ from the bottom. Since I need to add 3″ I then add 1.5″ to each gap lengthening the center panel 3″ to accommodate for the bust.



Your new pieces are finished. Cut and sew as normal.

Did you already snatch up some good deals and patterns from your wishlist?  If so what did you get and which one do you plan on making first?

May 9th – May 12th until 11:59PM PST only save 30% off your entire order at with the coupon code MAMATURNS30 .  This includes not only individual patterns but an additional 30% off the already discounted bundles too!  That makes many of the bundles almost 50% off retail.  It’s not often that I have big store wide sales like this so now is the time to order those patterns you have been wanting because it will be months before there is another sale like this again ;).  No other coupons may be combined with this sale.

Also don’t forget the awesome customer rewards we offer too!  For every $1 you spend you get 1 point and 1 point = .01 to use towards a future order.  There are also 25 points for leaving reviews AS WELL as a 10% email coupon good on your next pattern purchase.

ARGH! Boy’s Pirate Long Beach Board Shorts



Sew Fab Bundle 19 PDF Sewing Patterns for only $29.95 #DIY #EYMM #SewFab 

One of the really neat parts of participating in the Sew Fab Pattern Sale is that we get a chance to try out the other patterns in the bundle! The ones I was the most excited to sew up is Terra’s Treasures Long Beach Board Shorts for my littlest boy.

I have to say, even with proper detail finishes these were a considerably fast sew and the end product is AMAZING! I can’t wait to make some for the other 4 kids. My 8.5 yr old son asked when I was making him pair and the pattern includes a shorter girls length too.

I wasn’t sold on the fabric combo until I got the bum panel done… that’s when I fell in love!

Then he tried them on and I was done for, lol.  This is one of my favorite boy items I have ever made!
