Fan Feature: Clean and Chic Sewing Room

Unfortunately the time to submit photos of your sewing room is over.
We hope you got a chance to check out all of the sewing spaces over on our Facebook page!
We had a lot of fun looking at everyone's space and wanted to extend a big thank you for your support and kindness.
But just because it's over doesn't mean we are done showing you inspiring rooms!
We couldn't resist showing you Holleigh's sewing room!
How amazingly clean and organized is this space?!
Don't you just love it!
We sure do! So we asked her a few questions about herself and this fabulous room.
What is your day job? Insurance Agent
What is your dream job? Purse Designer

What do you sew in your sewing room?
 Purses

What is your favorite part of your sewing room? The side-by-side tables.  One table is for my daughter to do her arts and crafts.
Give us an organizational tip: I have baskets and bins that fit perfectly under the tables.  I also use fishing lure boxes for small trinkets like buttons.
What was the inspiration for your sewing space? I wanted an area where I could sew, and my daughter could do crafts or relax. 

When/How did you learn to sew? Self-taught, about 9 years ago

How much time do you spend in your sewing room?  Not much anymore!  I started sewing when I was a pregnant housewife.  After the birth of my daughter, and going back to work about 4 years ago I have had less and less time to sew.  Just having the room, though, and having a place to keep all my favorite things makes me happy.  I think we all need a space that reflects who we are and what we love.

Where do you get your inspiration for your projects? I love purses that are made of beautiful fabrics and look for them on-line.  There was a lady in Canada who sold purses on Ebay about 9 years ago and she was my first inspiration.  My sister-in-law was also a huge inspiration.
What inspired you to put a beautiful couch in your sewing room? Wanting a comfortable area where my daughter could hang out.  There's also a bookshelf in the room filled with all my favorite books and so the couch provides a peaceful place where I can read.

Made By A Fabricista: ITY Dress

Hi sewing friends - Andrea here from Happy.Things.Here over on Insta with this week’s post – I’m sharing about a favorite fabric and pattern today!  So… the last two months have almost gotten the best of me. We made a somewhat unplanned decision to move homes and life has been just insanely busy and hard to find time to sew. But sewing  is such a joy and a stress reliever for me, so I fit in this fun and easy sew amidst the chaos and it made me sew very happy! Sneak peek – how could this print NOT make someone happy? First, let’s talk fabric. ITY , or Interlock Twist Yarn, is one of my all-time favorite fabrics for sewing clothing. Fabric Mart did an Instagram post with a video on this fabric and I highly recommend you check it out if this fabric is new to you. Three things I love about ITY – 1) it’s easy to care for and rarely wrinkles, 2) it’s easy to wear, great for drapey pieces, and works all year long, and 3) Fabric Mart gets great deadstock prints and colors from fashion design

Made By A Fabricista: Summer Separates in White Eyelet

To me, eyelet fabric suggests warm weather and sunshine.  I can envision myself sipping lemonade, while swaying on a porch swing with a gentle summer breeze on my face, all while wearing a lovely eyelet dress.  Hello Sewing Friends! It’s Sharon with Sharon Sews here sharing my latest Fabricista make with you.  This time I sewed some separates using a summer staple, eyelet fabric.   A quick search online revealed eyelet being used in more than just dresses this season, ranging from romantic dresses to flirty tops to wide-leg pants and matching camp shirts.  I even saw a man’s white eyelet top on a high-end shirt designer’s website.  There are so many options for using eyelet fabric, but I liked the look of eyelet pants with a matching top. Both fabrics were designer fabrics – I LOVE that section on the website! A white 100% cotton geometric floral embroidered eyelet lawn, and a baby pink/white 100% cotton embroidered pinwheel floral voile.  Both are so, so lovely!  I also took advantage

Made By A Fabricista: Breezy Summer Style with Rayon Challis from Fabric Mart.

Hey there my sewing friends!  Summer is here and I am all for it.  It has been exceptionally hot here in Southwest Florida. We have had temps in the high 90’s.  I want to keep cool and comfortable and still look pulled together this summer.  That’s why I chose rayon challis for this month’s summer make.   Rayon Challis is lightweight, flowy, soft and extremely comfortable to wear. It’s an excellent choice for summer outfits.  It has a beautiful drape making it an excellent choice for maxis, tops, dresses, and shorts. The fabric is lightweight and depending upon your sewing project you may need to use a lining with this fabric. Also use a lightweight interfacing when working with rayon challis.  If you are a beginner at sewing, you may find the fabric a bit fiddly to work with, but the end result is so worth it.  Fabric Mart has beautiful challis fabric to choose from. I chose this fun tropical print on an off-white background. This summer season vests are in.  I love the ease of wearin
