Моя очередная фантазия 😂😂 решила поучаствовать в забеге по пошиву вещей.
.
Между прочим уже 3-ий сезон идёт! #бнс_3  #большенесапожник от @letssew.game Вдруг тебе скучно, то присоединяйся))))
.
Необходимо отшить 6 вещей для себя любимой. Пока предварительно выбрала: юбка красная, юбка серая, рубашку в мурашку, худи молодный, платье трикотажное... И какой-нибудь топ  наверное надо будет... Или наоборот теплое. Ещё не определилась...
.
Может быть так подберу скопленные  запасы ткани. А то слишком много скопилось уже))))) Обычно коллективные игры меня будоражат и помогают выдержать сроки, перебороть сопротивление и прокрастинацию 😂😂

Ты любишь марафоны и ощущение совместного действа? Кто участвует? Кто ещё сомневается?

We believe sewing patterns shouldn’t just be for the little ones. 🤷🏼‍♀️
This dress pattern comes in tiny sizes for our little ladies to women sizes and even plus-size!

Day 19: Knowledge HUB #sewphotohop

I love using the internet in various forms to help me with my sewing but for me nothing beats a proper book. 
These four give easy to follow instructions with good photography to explain most things I've needed to know about or work out so far on my sewing journey.

Clockwise from top left:
@guthrieghani Learn to Sew with Lauren
@tillybuttons Love at First Stitch
@tillybuttons Stretch!

Amshinaapparel! Happy Tuesday! Catching up on Day 17 and 18 of the #sewphotohop photochallenge! Fitting and active versus lounge wear! Fitting is very important to me in a garment! Working with knits solve the fit issues  most times but zipper garments need that perfect fit! Often I make a muslin to ensure fit. What I have found which is not new is that commercial patterns need to be adjusted to ensure fit for different body types. That can be tedious and annoying. I mean we live in a society where almost every other piece of clothing needs alterations of some sort. There's always  nips and tucks needed here and there for it to be the perfect piece✂️✂️✂️. With that said, people are looking for fit more and more in their clothing!  In terms of lounge vs active wear I really don't know. A combination of both I guess. I like a jeans on the go but a nice dress for a fancy occassion! 😊👏#sewingpattern #wardrobeessentials #dressmaking #dresses #blogger #entrepreneurclimb #goals #businessgoals #ilovesewing #fashionphotography #model #photochallenge #photogenic #memories #memade #tuesdayflow #tuesdaymotivation #imakemyclothes #fashionentrepreneur #handmadebusiness #handmadewardrobe #handmadeintironto #sewingproject #sewingchallenge #activewear #loungewear #fitting #fitissues #bodypositive

FEAR: Your greatest fear might just be carrying your biggest growth. .
.
It took me three years to get over my fear of failing at sewing. .
.
I had my sewing machine for 3 years and every time I would sit to sew I would find an excuse not to cus it seemed too complicated for me to comprehend. .
.
I decided recently that it was better to fail, than not trying at all. With not expecting much. I patiently watched series of @youtube videos, and I thought myself to sew.
.
.
With me finishing my first dress successfully, I’m now saying mhen! Sewing is easier than I thought. 
I can’t imagine I wasted 3 years because of fear. .
.

SUMMARY:  Try that one thing that scares you the most today.  Don’t let fear cripple you. .

Oooooooo super exciting photo for catching up with #sewphotohop Day 17: Fitting S.O.S.

I don't really do any exciting fit changes. I should probably be more bothered about doing a FBA more often than I actually do, but the only regular thing I almost always do is grade out one or two sizes from waist to hip. 
This is my fringe PDF and although I've graded between sizes, having looked at the pattern more and other people's finished projects, I'm not sure it will be enough so am considering adding some more. Quite often if I'm really unsure of how I want the hip part to sit, I add a stupid extra amount, to cover any eventuality, as with most patterns it's really simple to just keep taking it in or altering the shape.

Day 16: Sewcial (friends I made)

Every time I go to any sewing event I feel like I have lots of friends. Everyone is so nice and welcoming.  This superstar @yoursewinstyle though is my first proper friend that I made from the sewing community. I don't manage to catch up with her enough, and definately don't see her enough but I think she is absolutely ace and value her so much. 😘😍❤ Photo taken at #sewbrum last year

Here’s my inverted pleat skirt for the @sewover50 mini sewing challenge. I used a pattern from 1977, quite similar in style to the M&S skirt which is apparently receiving rave reviews (swipe to see both). Being a vintage pattern I thought it might be a bit small round the waist so used cotton drill fabric with a bit of stretch from @minervacrafts. I’m really pleased with the overall result. Also wearing Freya top made some time ago and ancient ankle boots.

Howdy folks! I've been up in Pennsylvania the past week (this is us at Glen Onoko Falls!) and unintentionally off the grid as I managed to drop my phone in the airport toilet as soon as I got off the plane. 😂 What an amazing surprise to come back and see so many new peeps joining in the #sewtembercosplaychallenge though!!! I am working my way through my feed to catch up on it all and will be finishing up the challenge too. But first I must replenish my jetlagged body with pizza and wine! 🍕🍷

My first crack at this dress for #sewingthescene is a mixed result. I love the fabric, I LOVE the collar, but I don’t like the specific way I hacked the #beachpyjamas into a skirt - if I did another (and I shall), I would make it a true wrap dress. Truth is, I didn’t have enough of this fabric for two skirt fronts, so I thought I could just put a skirt on a shortened yoke for like a half wrap, Bob’s your Uncle. It’s still really pretty, but I think I can do better. Don’t know if that counts as a “fitting SOS” for #sewphotohop, and it certainly isn’t activewear, but I was still living my greenhouse dreams at Kew this weekend. There’s still time to sew for #sewingthescene18, guys! #vintagesewing #folkwearpatterns #sewing #sewcialists #sewingchallenge #1930s

What a beautiful intricate quilt just finished by my sister Maura.  This is designed by Nikki Foley, Co Kerry, an amazing designer and is Director of the Sewing Shed, Keel, Co. Kerry.  This quilt design is called Dungaree Dan.  Maura loves a sewing challenge and has a great eye for colour.  This is one of Maura's many works of art.  #patchwwork #sewingshedkerry#sewing #crafts#creative #sewingchallenge #babyboy #littleboyroom #playmat #babyquilt

Fitting S.O.S. 
I’ve learnt a lot since I made this  #delphineskirt (my first ever #memade garment) but if there is one thing I’m still trying to perfect is the waistband, it’s always too wide 😅😊

@sewover50 a second day of shirts from me #sew50shirts after I’d had a long fallow period of not sewing among the first things I made were these 2 shirts. They are both @burda_style #burda7136 which is a fairly challenging but flattering and well fitting shape. I went to town on this first one with little ‘WhiteStuff’ style details-cotton lace trim, ribbon, mis-matched buttons etc. Although I made the 2 versions I never found the front placket instructions that easy to comprehend although they turned out ok in the end! This one is a fly front, the only one I’ve ever made I think 🤔 and there’s lots of pintucks. Sadly neither of them fit me now hence their crumpled state from the wardrobe 🤣 it’s a nice female shirt pattern though so if you like a challenge and you need a shirt this could be it!! #sewover50 #sewingshirts #burdapatterns #sewingchallenge #sewcialists #sewingblogger  #imakemyownclothes #handmadewardrobe #sewingdetails #flyfront #dressshirt

Day | 17 of #sewphotohop hosted by @houseofpinheiro - fitting SoS: im still trying to get the perfect fit for my armhole... I’ve learned that it not only depends on the pattern but a lot has to do with the fabric type too.  Case in point - I used the same pattern on this #gemmatank using seersucker fabric and I have no problem with the armhole being too tight on that one.  But on this plaid fabric, it sure is tight!  I still wear it tho, but I need to get it fixed so I’m more comfortable with it.  And with so many sleeveless tops I wear, perfecting this armhole thing is VERY important!

Day | 15 of #sewphotohop hosted by @houseofpinheiro - ugliest make:  this kimono cardigan that I was not able to finish!
.
I don’t know what happened to this one, but from the beginning I just didn’t feel right.  I had the worst time trying to figure out what fabric to use for the hems and how could I add the touch of cuteness and it just didn’t work out.  I didn’t get rid of it, it’s in a ziplog bag packed up waiting for my creative jujus are on again to try tackling this one more time.

These skintight shiny gloves are my new favorite accessory! They’re the first pair of gloves I’ve ever made, so I definitely know what to work on for the next ones. I can’t wait to wear them for Voyd, they make me feel like a total boss!

These skintight shiny gloves are my new favorite accessory! They’re the first pair of gloves I’ve ever made, so I definitely know what to work on for the next ones. I can’t wait to wear them for Voyd, they make me feel like a total boss! . . . #cosplay  #womenofcosplay  #voyd  #theincredibles2  #disney  #disneycosplay  #pixar  #sewing  #sewingchallenge  #isew  #wip  #cosplaywip  #sewist  #sewistsofinstagram  #accessory  #accessorysewing  #creative  #artsy  #costuming  #superheroine  #gloves  #spandex

Hands up if you’re joining in with #sewingthescene hosted by @theunfinishedseamstress this year? I’m rather taken with this pink coat that beautiful Audrey Hepburn wears in How to Steal a Million. Thought I’d use it as my inspiration to make a new coat. Got the fabric, got the photos, now I just need some time! #sewingthescene18 #sewingchallenge #audreyinspiration #audreyhepburn #howtostealamillion #audreycoat #pinkcoat #sewspiration #sewingideas sewcialist #sewcialists #isew #sewistsofinstagram #bathsews

☁💧☔ +🎀=🌈 Made this for @littlepineneedle #makethrifttry challenge. 
This falls under Weird & Wonderful Bags...mine is probably more on the weird side, 😹due to the shape, function, etc.

I did use all materials that I already had with me...which were thrifted or given to me to reuse for something. 
Finally had free time to sew something! 🎒👜✌
Thanks Annika for the challenge! 🙋

There are some parts I do not like, but it is weird and it's a bag...so yeah 👍

Amshinaapparel! Trying to catch up with Day 16 of the #sewphotohop photo challenge! The theme is Sewcial! I have discovered an entire secret society of sewist that I didn't know exist in this day and age since I started 😂😂😂. Some I have met and others we have known each other so long I feel like we are friends and of course some I have never talked to but have been following their journey. Let's not talk about the ' they don't know they are my mentor folks" 😂It's also challenges like the #sewphotohop by @houseofpinheiro that allows me to connect with and share while meeting like minds and sewing enthusiasts. I can't thank you all enough for influencing my craft and allowing me to be inspired day in day out to stay the course as a fashion entrepreneur and sewist! Here for the Sewcial! It's motivational! My remix of just keep swimming from Finding Nemo.... In closing " Just keep sewing, just keep sewing what do I do I Sew, sew, sewwwwwwww" The Chronicles most definitely continues! #sewphotohop #ilovesewing #hiyhall #hello #sewcial #handmadebusiness #handmadewardrobe #isewmyownclothes #sewingchallenge #entrepreneur #photochallenge #photogenic #hieveryone #memade #fashiondesigner #fashionphotography #fashionentrepreneur #fashionblogger #fashion #thankful #onlinementor #friends #inspirationstory

My #sewingthescene18 entry is finally complete!  This look was inspired by Claire from The breakfast Club.  Hear more about it by clicking the link in my bio and watching my vlog post. @theunfinishedseamstress #pinsandwaxprints #sewingthescene #sewingchallenge #linen #africanwaxprint
Day 16 of #sewphotohop. I love the sewcial scene and continue to be inspired and uplifted each day by this amazing sewing community. I so enjoy the various challenges, such as making wrap dresses, Frida Kahlo outfits and kaftans and am similarly excited and eager to participate in @sewover50. Through these activities I’m able to connect with both existing and new sewing friends. Living in a rural location in the Scottish Highlands presents challenges to meeting up with other sewists. I have managed to get to two #sewscottish events which I enjoyed tremendously. I was so nervous about the first one! Also I was so pleased when @theweefabricshop opened up in Inverness as it means I can pop in not just for supplies but to chat all things sewing with Claire, Fiona and Marice. @houseofpinheiro

I haven’t got other sewing “ real “ friends, but I met a lot of lovely people on line, from all over the world! Sewing people are so kind!!!! ❤️❤️❤️
Day16 of #sewphotohop “Sewcialist”
I really appreciate the sewing (but also knitting and crochet) community of IG. I definitely made some good virtual instafriend but I haven’t had the chance and pleasure to meet any of you in real life. Nevertheless you had an impact in my everyday life...you make me happy when a project is well received; I am inspired by your style (red boots😜); I read what you suggest; I get to discover new fabric shops thanks to you; I receive plenty of motivation, support and sewing ideas (plissé skirt, wrap dress); you send me presents; I worry about you if I don’t see your posts; I take part to many challenges and giveaways thanks to you (I haven’t won any this year yet) and you gave me the courage and the confidence to finally enroll to a fashion design course which I will start tomorrow. If you are reading this, yes, it’s you who I am talking about! Thank you so much!

Part 3, the epic conclusion to the #OrlaDress #sewalong for the #sewtember2018 challenge is now up on Youtube! This time we add the skirt and zip, finish the hem and complete the dress. See #linkinprofile
This weeks pattern is an adorable jumper dress made from Simplicity pattern 8641, and designed by Sew House Seven. I will be shortening this pattern so that it comes to my knee. I am using a truly vintage corduroy for the main dress, along with a vintage cotton for the straps.  Week 2 of my one year sewing challenge. #sewing #plussizesewing #simplicitypatterns #sewhouseseven #vintagefabric #cordaroy #sewingchallenge #weirdlikeme
Amshinaapparel! Happy Sunday! This is me catching up on Day 15 of the #sewphotohop photo challenge. Day 16 will come later in the day! What was I Thinking? So I loved this red velvet textured fabric. It was smooth and a great quality but turned out to be the worst make last year I think...lol..that's how bad it was. I was determined to wear it but I was not happy with it. We were going to the movie theatre so I figured none would see the faults. Lol hahaha ....except me of course who knew they existed! This fabric was like trying to hold a handful of aloe pealed and covered in oil. I mean it was slipping every where.😂 It was hard to keep it still. Pinning and sewing were a task.😮 It turned out unintentionally high low with a wonky collar that needed to be pinned at the back in order to take this photo. 😣So you see my dilemma guys! I really pushed to save it but it's not a piece I am proud of. This photo captures me saving it and giving it an evening to shine!😊. I would still give velvet another chance at the machine again despite this experience. So to my sewist, designers, seamstresses and creatives out there let me know your tips on perfecting the velvet dilemma! #photochallenge #redvelvet #designing #sewphotohop #sewingchallenge #sewingbooboo #bus#entrepreneurclimb #designing #handmadebusiness #handmadewardrobe #memade #designingerrors #designingwomen #ootd #handmadeintironto #fallsewingprojects #photography #fashionphotography #fashiondesigner #fashionentrepreneur #fashionblogger #fashion #blackbusinesswomen #blackfashion #sundayflow #sundayvibes

In the end, pajamas were a more practical ideal for me to use the amazing sewing themed fabric I found on @etsy. More on how I made this cute set, on the sewing journal. Link is in Bio. HAPPY SUNDAY!

I’ve started my Christmas sewing plans and this encouraged me to reflect on my #2018makenine list and what I have hopes to complete! I’ve got two projects left on my grid. I’ve got fabric chosen for my #blackwoodcardigan but I don’t think I’ll finish that quilt. And I exchanged the other quilt for my #jellyrollrug . I’ve completed a lot of garments this year and quilting has been put aside for now! I need to make a grid like this now for all the gifts I hope to complete! •• #sewinggoals #sewingchallenge #makenine2018 #garmentsewing #slowfashion #sewistsofinstagram #lovetosew

Ugliest fabric?

I hated the colors but I loved the print. Since I am a scissor hoarder I ended up making myself scissor print PJs!

Day15 of #sewphotohop “What Was I Thinking?”
I love this pattern and I love these tartan fabrics, but pairing them (and mixing them) wasn’t a great choice as I feel like I can wear this dress just at Christmas and being flannel fabric I can wear it just in Winter...but it is sleeveless...and I don’t have a suitable coat for it! 🤦‍♀️so I wore it just with family members for now!...but it was perfect for ballroom dance with my dad though!😜 #sewing #sewistsofinstagram #sewcialist #isew #memade #iwearwhatisew #tartandress #sewfun #sewphotohop2018 #sewingchallenge

Suzy @threadquarters set aside September as a #hellnoufos challenge. I am in and decided to finish up some projects.  Last September I tried Oslo cardigan in wool, lengthen it and color blocked. I was excited until I tried it.  Then I was so disappointed with the combination and appearance. As if I had fled from the eighties. I've been thinking for a long time whether it's worth it. I do not even know where it is. When I think of a failure, I remember that and I would like to correct it. Maybe I should find it and shorten it to high hip?

Day 15 - What was I thinking? @houseofpinheiro #sewphotohop 
I bought this fabric to make some reusable grocery bags. It is a sheeting so it was really cheap and the fabric was very wide... I thought it was brilliant until I realised there's no way I'm walking out the supermarket with five dangling zebras... alien zebras that is! Cuz ain no zebras on this planet looking like this! 😒 What was I thinking?!?!? 😕😑

Cuz ain no zebras on this planet looking like this! 😒 What was I thinking?!?!? 😕😑 . . . . . . . . . . . . #photochallenge  #sewistofinstagram  #sewcialist  #sewingchallenge  #sewingaddict  #sewingblogger  #fashionblogger  #instafashion  #fabricaddict  #memade  #memadewardrobe  #ilovetosew  #ilovesewing  #paradise  #islandlife  #islandgirl  #caribbeanfashion  #caribbean  #sewphotohop2018  #reusablebags  #grocerybag  #reducereuserecycle  #reduceplastic  #saynotoplastic  #gogreen  #savetheplanet 
One of my sewing friends and I started a long-distance, monthly #scrapbusters challenge.  The only rule: You must use the fabric already in your stash.  This month’s project was reusable grocery bags!  Super pleased with how quick and easy this whipped up...and how my stash is just a tiny bit smaller now. 😉 #trendypixeldesigns

Day 15 of #sewphotohop. I love the @lottajansdotter #esmetop pattern but don’t know what I was thinking when I elected to make this version in tweed with contrasting wool sleeves. Both of these fabrics are very scratchy so the top is a nightmare to wear. I know, I know, should have lined it but not going to do that now. Also it doesn’t hang well and tends to cling if worn over a lightweight top. So it’s currently in my refashioning basket!  A lesson learned! @houseofpinheiro

#sewphotohop Day 15: Ugliest fabric (What was I thinking?) The snakeskin fabric is just horrible. The colours looked way better online and although I'm a fan of animal prints this is one of the worst. However the real issue with it is the quality of the jersey and I doubt it will ever get used, except maybe for fancy dress or an experimental toile.

The letters and numbers fabric isn't ugly but really when am I going to want to wear an item of clothing with A, B, C and 1, 2, 3 on. So really WTF was I thinking when I made that purchase?

This is my second year of sewing with knits. After experimenting with techniques, fabrics and ideas, for the past year I started to sew what I need every day. I do it in collections. I am happy because every day I can wear something memade. Here I am in my new Jemma tunic from @sinclairpatterns . I love it!

Very delicately presenting Elisabeth - for the second time. The first time graced our #instagram feed with our #limitededition border printed #botanicalprint top back in early June. And now she's almost going to pop out a baby boy. May God's grace be with her and her little baby and that both are healthy
.

With just one yard of this hand stamped block print - she picked a tried and tested Tiny Pocket Tank pattern from @grainlinestudio - I love the little pocket detail and the golden zipper she has used on the front
.

About our @fiberstofabric - fabric, she says : the cotton is just so lightweight and breathable. You can read more about how she made the top on her blog here - https://stitchingandmaking.com/2018/06/02/hand-stamped-fabric-tank/
.

Thank you SO MUCH @stitchingandmaking for sporting your baby bump in the tank top you made in our fabric. We wish you and your soon to arrive baby boy lots and lots of good wishes...
.

And speaking of baby boys .. please keep your eyes peeled for the next post - a baby boy coming right up :)

The best repair for stormy 🌧 weather! Powers out? Grab your candles and sewing kit.  Powers on? Time to relax and unwind. A mending meditation to calm your nerves and help you work through tough times! Sewing for the soul, your new sew-cial media time, you won’t be disappointed! ⠀
⠀
Head over to @thefarwoods to see their step by step tutorial that is so clear and easy to follow! Thanks for the mending resource, you all sock, I mean rock 😜! ⠀

"One winter wearing a crummy pair of boots and now ALL my very $$$ @smartwool socks have holes in the same place 😱 BUT fret not! Now is the time to pull out all those woolies tucked away since winter - socks, sweaters, mittens and hats - and spruce them up for Fall 🍂⠀
Darning a hole is surprisingly simple!  Essentially you are using yarn to weave new fabric wear the old has worn away.  Swipe left for our simple step-by-step tutorial on how to earn a BIG hole in your sock!  If you’d like to mend a hole in something without a heel - like a sweater or hat - the process is the same, you just don’t need the apple/orange/darning egg because that is really only used for holding the shape of a heel.  If you are mending a fingertip in a mitten or globe, use a smaller finger-like tool - perhaps the wide end of a carrot? - to hold the glove-finger’s shape while you mend the hole⠀
🍂⠀
Often mending feels daunting because there never seems to be time to fit it in - there always seems to be something more important to do.  But we find it helpful to tuck a mending project in a bag when we are in the go so we can pull it out in a lull - riding the bus or train, waiting in line, waiting for our food at a restaurant.  There are so many moments, out and about and at home when a few rows of stitches can be added to a mending project and soon enough all the holes will be filled and things are ready for action again 🍂⠀

3 patterns I don’t think I’ll ever stop using are:

#sewphotohop Day 14: Wardrobe essentials

For me this has to be simple tops as they are the items that get worn most often. I do make jersey tops but my favourite me-mades are woven, preferably in cotton lawn, but I do love the prints available on quilting cotton too.

These are @sewaholic #belcarra, @fancytigercrafts #sailortop and @colettepatterns #laureltop

Day | 13 of #sewphotohop - game changer: this is a cop out because I can’t think of anything else - SEWING pretty much full time.  My life is so different compared to a year ago.  Back then, I worked in tech was so burnt out because my left brain was never resting.  I could literally take a business call 2 mins after I woke up and was ON! Decided to quit my job and turned to sewing as an outlet and take care of myself for once.  And oh my gawd! Sewing has been such a great adventure so far and making my own clothes - who would have thought!  My family is like “who are you???”.
.
I still have so much to learn from you all and am so grateful to have discovered the IG sewing community.  All things I didn’t know even existed last year!  Perhaps sewing is not a game changer for me, but more like a life changer!

#sewphotohop day 13: game changer 
The biggest game changer for me was discovering indie pattern companies, starting with Deer and Doe and their Melilot shirt. Up until then, I had sewn garments here and there, but nothing that ever stood out to me or fit quite right. But sewing up the Melilot in some scrap double gauze opened up a new and totally fun world to me. 
This top is the reason so much of what I wear is handmade :)

Day 13 of #sewphotohop. Without doubt @closetcase.patterns sew your dream jeans online course was a real game changer. I not only have well fitting jeans but have gone on to make landers and other previously scary patterns which is great since I spend most of my life in trousers. @houseofpinheiro

#sewphotohop Day 13: Game Changer 
My overlocker. Super speedy. Amazing finishes. Much more enthusiasm for sewing with knits. The feeling of "Wow, I am like a proper sewist now" 🙄😂 #gamechanger #overlocker #sewing #sewingchallenge #instachallenge #sewcialists
Day 13: Game Changer
🌟JEANS!!🌟
When I first started sewing jeans were a big ambition but felt miles away. I've made two pairs this year.
The reasons they are game changers for me are a) it means I wear clothes I've made almost every day b) my confidence in what it was possible to make rocketed.
There's a really great blog post on Closet Case Patterns website called "just make it already!" which I highly recommend if you're sitting hesitant on a project.

#sewphotohop day 13 @houseofpinheiro Game Changer.

Ok - so I’ve gone for two game changers. An expensive one and a very much more reasonable one!

The expensive one is the overlocker. It has quite simply changed the quality of my garments overnight. Whilst not necessary to sew, you can get by on most items with a zigzag stitch and indeed I did for a while...however, if Santa offers to bring you one....just say Yes!! (Please of course. Mustn’t forget our manners!) My more reasonable game changer and actual life saver is the loop turner. I have lost my s&£t more times than I care to recall (I can’t be alone?!!) trying to turn fiddly straps (such as those on the Ogden Cami, a top I love!) This little beaut recommended to me by @grannycokes literally saved me!! 😂 It makes life very much more simple and calm!! A fiver or under in most places - a very worthy treat to yourself!! Looking forward to seeing all of your game changers! 🙌🏻😁

#sewphotohop Sewing a coat has been a game changer for me. I CAN take on the more challenging projects with success! #soichloecoat #sewoverit #soishowoff #sewingacoat #gamechanger #sewcialists #sewingchallenge #igchallenge
You wanted to see what it looked like on, so here it is! The dress slip I used was made of 2 fabrics(swipe to see), one was a smooth material while the other one was ribbed. So I thought it would add more dimension & interest if I alternated between the two. .

It starts out with a prayer, then a song, a lesson(we all take turns teaching), family business(plans for the week, any concerns, anything the kids want to share or ask), a game, then closing song, prayer & finish with a dessert. If we are short on time, we skip some things in between. Or sometimes we pray & then go do something fun & call it good. .

I gave the lesson on Monday & I wanted to share it with you. In Jonah, from the Old Testament in the Bible, we are told a story of Jonah’s reaction when God tells him to go tell the people of Nineveh to repent. The people of Nineveh were so uninviting, murdered bodies of foreigners would be lying on the streets, with no law to govern or punish them. .
.
So Jonah didn’t want to go! I wouldn’t either! So to hide from God, he hopped on a ship but God caused a great tempest in the sea & they were about to die. Jonah told them to throw him into the water so they could live & they did so reluctantly. Then a big whale swallows up Jonah & he’s inside for 3 days/3 nights & he repents. The whale spits him out onto the shore & he goes to Nineveh & preaches to the people, whom repent. .
.
How often do we find ourselves complaining & saying, this is terrible, it stinks inside this whale, I can’t eat, sleep, it’s dark, cold & wet, why is this happening to me? Why are you punishing me, God? .
.
But little do we know that if it wasn’t for the whale that God sent, we would have drowned in the sea? That it was a lifeboat to save our lives? And while we complain for 3 days & 3 nights of our miserable condition, the whale was safely taking us to shore, since our human bodies are incapable of swimming that far? That this whole time, God had a bigger picture & it was to our own benefit? I know God always has our best interest at heart.
You wanted to see what it looked like on, so here it is! The dress slip I used was made of 2 fabrics(swipe to see), one was a smooth material while the other one was ribbed. So I thought it would add more dimension & interest if I alternated between the two. . . #sharingmyheartwithyou  Every Monday we try to have family night we call FHE, Family Home Evening.
