Eielson Jet Sweater


I’m very proud of this particular project representing my current home in Alaska! Alaskan-dyed wool, fighter jets, and snowflakes--what more could I need?!

Nursing-Friendly Vintage Thrift Haul

New Youtube video! 

I needed some nursing-friendly garments for this phase of life, but I needed a way to get them that is more budget conscious. Enter thrifting!

What's your favorite look from the haul?

1940s Woman's Day Purse

 While I've still got some fluctuating postpartum measurements, I'm taking the time to make things like accessory sets that will fit any time. As part of a set, I decided to break out this 1940s pattern and make the "small rucksack" purse!

Wearing History Victory Hat Pattern

Not gonna lie to you guys, this hat almost did me in.

I wanted a small project to get my sewing mojo back, and this Wearing History Victory Hat pattern seemed to fit the bill. I had some scrap denim left over, so I decided to make a hat, purse, and belt set out of it.  

I got the denim cut out, and the hat is only three pattern pieces. The pattern also called for interfacing or hymo for the cap brim and top, but I thought it would be better to recycle an old plastic dog cone to prevent future creasing if the hat got bent and such. FIRST MISTAKE.

1934 Curtain Tie-Backs

I decided it was finally time to make something to hold back my curtains, and I remembered a booklet I have from 1934 with just that type of info in it!

1930s Black & White Ensemble

I'm excited to show you guys my finished 1930s ensemble! It's one of the rare times that I got to use a true vintage pattern, and it turned out just as I wanted. (Also a rare thing, ha!)
