DIY Coffee Filter Flowers
Hi guys! I'm really excited to share this project with you today. I made lots of these coffee filter flowers to decorate with for our wedding. They were really fun and simple to make and they're much cheaper (and easier) than buying large quantities of colo...

Sewing Project: Aster Blouse
Well, it's June! I kinda can't believe this month has finally arrived, since I've been thinking about it for over a year and a half as we plan our wedding. As you might assume, most of my spare time has been taken up by wedding projects (which I outlined in...

My Top 10 Favorite Podcasts to Sew to
Ok, this is a bit of a departure for a sewing and vintage blog, but lately I've been really into podcasts. I especially like to listen to them when I sew (see, it is relevant!). They're a little more engaging than just listening to music, but I can still fo...

Sewing Project: A Charley Harper Moneta
