If get the chance to go to a Commemorative Air Force Airshow, I would highly recommend it. I had a lot of fun going with my family. Seeing the planes in the air, (not many old planes do that!), and hearing from veterans was great.
I thought I would share some designs that I hope to use with those fabrics I got recently. I hope to be able to get working on a project soon. I also have a few home decor projects to work on too. Cowhide, suede, and leather lacing are on the supplies list.
When your best friend comes to visit, what do you do? You sight see of course. Our adventures took us to various locations near my new home.
One of our stops was at the Texas Civil War Museum. And how does this classify as a subject for a sewing blog you ask? The museum houses an exhibit of ladies fashion from the Civil War up to the beginning of the twentieth century. There are a few other fascinating textiles as well. (One friend kept texting me and asking questions about all the Civil War flags...... The Color Bearer.)
Help! I have a few design ideas floating around, and I am trying to decide what I should do.
I made mini mock-ups in doll size to get a better feel for how a design would work.
T-shirts are one of those articles of clothing that could be great or could be terrible. Nice and comfy and trendy, or boxy, frumpy, and a fashion disaster.
My parents bought me this T-shirt (knowing my love for Roy Rogers!) while down in Fort Worth, Texas on a trip this spring. My sister got the size small and I got the size medium...... because those were the only two left. Obviously, I didn't want to wear it looking like this.
I plead very guilty to the charge of fabric hoarding. Hopefully, these projects will actually get done in a reasonable amount of time.

I am just in love with those white oxfords in that picture there. Royal Vintage's latest collection is on pre-order and feature practical and casual shoes. (Can't always wear those high heels and be comfortable!)
I know I have had nothing but books to show lately, but I have nothing else to show to prove my continued existence. :)
I know I have been teribly negligent of this blog for the past month. I really haven't been doing any sewing. My excuse right now is that I am spending time working on building up a business again. It takes some time and effort to put a website together and find ways of advertising your services. In case anyone is wondering, I am a private piano teacher.
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away. Oh, wait. Wrong story. This wasn't a long time ago nor in a galaxy far away. My last project was about two months ago and that feels like along time ago and a whole other world.
Sarah loves to sew, learn more about sewing, and create items with a vintage flair. Her arch enemy is clipping curves, and she has a tolerable relationship with the seam ripper.
