redux…

Well, my pincushion cuff project got me sliced from the Moda competition, but I still got to write up a tutorial for it. I’m not sure when they will post it on the Bake Shop though it’s live now- click here to peep my tutorial & the PDF’s will be up shortly…because I was VERY late with it. VERY. I’m a recovering perfectionist, so I had to fight myself from writing draft after draft & taking millions of photos & fussing with every anchor point in Illustrator! I’m my own worst enemy sometimes, but I got to sew another one during this whole crazy tutorial creation time & it came out just as lovely as can be! I used hot pink felt for the strap and yellow thread in my bobbin (because I had a bright yellow bobbin for some reason & needed to get rid of it!) & this color combination was so happy looking! But it’s only on the inside of the strap, so it’s like a little secret… Anyways, I just thought I’d share in case anyone out there liked my project! Happy Thursday! -rebecca

well, i finished…

I am quite proud of my cabochon because I busted out my plushie 3D sewing skillz! lol It was appliqued from a jelly roll from the Hello Luscious line. I decided I wanted something that was a play off of the real jewelry that I’ve inherited from my momma- But a softer, fluffier version that I can wear all the time! & hold my pins! & I must ashamedly say- Before this bracelet, my only pincushion was a miniature Crown Royal bag stuffed with Polyfil… So, I’m calling this a step up. 🙂 rebecca

not so lonely teardrops

Whew! Can you say “squeaked in”? This little teardrop trailer sewing box was my entry into the Moda Bakeshop Sliced Competition.  They had tryouts throughout the entire month of February & of course, who waited until the last day to enter?  They will pick four finalists out of all the submissions and those lucky peeps will then compete against each other in weekly contests all March long.  I kept thinking about it and thinking about it, then I took a long hard look at all the sweet prizes they are offering & couldn’t resist.  Who doesn’t want a giant acrylic box full of Prescencia thread?!  So, the phrase of the day was “Sew like the wind!!” And I did.  Cross your fingers for me! -rebecca p.s. Yes, the trailer wheels are spools of thread. 🙂

this is the top of the box, yo.
