Made on stream this week! This is only my 2nd @heyjunehandmade Lane Raglan and I love itttttttt! This is made from brushed jersey from @ssefabrics that I have been straight hoarding since last year and it is simultaneously cozy and lightweight. The material is much stretchier than the last stuff I used for a lane raglan so it ended up being longer and, while I love how it turned out on this top, I may end up shortening the next one by 1"-ish if I use a drapey/super stretchy material. The sleeves are also super long but I'm kind of into it. #madeonstream #twitchcreative #twitchstreamer #twitchgirls #heyjunehandmade #heyjunepatterns #twitch #twitchtv #sewingismyhappyplace #imakemyownclothes #apparelsewing #raglan #raglanshirt #laneraglan #sweater #millennialsewing #sosewenglishfabrics #ssefabrics #sse

Summer's really not that far away, guys. I promise. Let's think about how great summer will be by making the ruffled version of this darling dress out of white striped dotted swiss.

You’d think it was Valentine’s over here! After a particularly difficult week, my husband and I were running errands at the same time and both came home with flowers FOR ME. 😂 He made a special effort but I’m always buying flowers for myself. The amazing coincidence is they were both pink (my least favorite color although I’m starting to come around). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In other news, I’m loving this red gingham to make a #hinterlandDress ! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #handmade #DIYclothes #memademay #apparelsewing #mmm19 #elastic #imademyclothes #sewing #imakemyownclothes #handmadewardrobe #memadewardrobe #isew #joanns #textiles
Check out this great tutorial by Joan over at @breaknremake ! She made a super cute dress using elastic thread to smock, and she used our upcoming There Be Dragons print to boot. The dress turned out so cute! See the full video here: https://youtu.be/2dCrXF6S3UE #tutorial #monalunafabric #breaknremake #organicfabric #smocking #sewing #apparelsewing #handmadewardrobe
Feeling like a real @truebias fan girl in my #emersoncroppants and #nikkotop . Paired this outfit with my cropped #wikstenhaori for a family dinner date on Saturday and felt perfectly fancy. The bonus is that the elastic waistband allowed me to eat as much of the delicious meal as I wanted without my pants feeling too tight. 💃👏🏻How's your #sewfancypants sewing coming along? This week we'll be focusing on fitting those fancy pants, so let us know what you'd like to hear. Also, don't forget to enter the giveaway with @stylemakerfabrics on my last post.

My finished infinity scarf from tonight's sew-along stream! Check that hidden pocket 👌 Thank you so much for sewing along with me ladies!! @tudahmaedit @awkwardsquared... and anyone else who secretly did! ❤❤❤ This is a holiday freebie tutorial from @patternsforpirates and I love how it turned out! The only change I made was to make it 54" long (1.5" yards) instead of 72" (2 yards) because I really like my infinity scarves to be closer around the neck for maximum coziness.

I did another Sew-Along Saturday today on stream; this time it was the Cocoon Cardigan by @patternsforpirates ! I made it out of a sweater knit and it's so comfyyyyyy. The only modification I made to the pattern was to make my tall band 10" wide instead of the 13" that the pattern calls for. Thank you so much for sewing along with me @awkwardsquared , you're my favorite 🖤 If anyone ever sews along with my sew-along streams I would love to see pics! #twitchstreamer #twitchcreative #socialsewing #twitchgirls #twitchaffiliate #sewingismyhappyplace #patternforpirates #cocooncardigan #cocooncardi #dolman #fallsewing #p4p #handmadewithjoann #millennialsewing #slouchysweater #apparelsewing #isewmyownclothes #notallofthem

The finished #ckcestella flannel nightgown for my niece! I omitted the ruffle to keep it a length my sister preferred. I've been trying to get this done and shipped prior to Christmas so that she could wear it through the holidays and it's headed out today, woo! I'm also shipping a dress to my other niece but I forgot to photograph it 🤦‍♀️ Scroll to the 3rd photo for a behind the scenes trying to get a top down view of the entire nightgown 😆 #ckcpatterns #handmadewithjoann #twitchstreamer #twitchgirls #twitchcreative #twitchaffiliate #sewingismyhappyplace #sewingforlilyrose #flannelnightgown #apparelsewing
How’s your holiday sewing going?? I just had to give Charlie’s Christmas dress stitches 😭✂️. I was trimming off the excess in prep for the blind hem. I was thinking I needed to trim to the chalk line, mid scissor bite I realized the chalk line is where it finishes😬. It’s ok, it will be in the hem, but it scared me for a minute 🤦🏼‍♀️😂. #holidaysewing #apparelsewing #givemealltheplaidrightnow
The sew-along was a success! I made 2 slouchy headwarmers from the @patternsforpirates holiday freebies from last year and some other lovely ladies stitched some up with me as well! My favorite is the sweater knit one ❤ I plan on doing more sew-alongs in the future, probably on Saturdays! #sewingwithknits #patternforpirates #p4p #slouchyheadwarmer #holidayfreebie #twitchstreamer #twitchtv #twitchcreative #sewing #apparelsewing #sewingismyhappyplace #twitchgirls #cowl #beanie #earwarmer #headband #handmadewithjoann

New blog post up! Read how I made this shirt at my blog✨link in bio✨ I have been loving floral prints, and I was super excited to make a shirt out of this thrifted cotton fabric. It's so beautiful! 😍🌺 ❇ ❇ #blogging #blog #floral #red #sewing #sewingclothes #apparelsewing #thrifty #thrifted #fashion #shirt #haltertop
My finished Favorite Tee by @patternsforpirates from yesterday's stream! This is the Pemberley Floral which is one of the prints from @elephanthousefabrics 's Favorites round which includes favorites from all their past preorders. This floral was from the "Page Turner" round and it has text from Pride and Prejudice 😍 They alllllso have the deathly hallows print I'm obsessed with available as part of the preorder. I'm super, super excited that EHF has started offering bamboo lycra as one of their bases because it's my favorite for flowy tops/dresses and it feels like angel kisses when you touch it! This is my first Favorite Tee with longer sleeves and I think I'm a fan. As for the Favorite Tee, I alter mine a bit to be a straight hem with no side vents 👍 #favoritetee #elephanthousefabrics #ehfabrics #favsround2018 #patternsforpirates #strikeoffsewing #strikeoffs #p4p #p4pfavoritetee #sewingismyhappyplace #sewingislife #bamboolycra #twitchcreative #twitchstreamer #twitch #twitchaffiliate #twitchgirls #apparelsewing #sewingwithknits

A few weeks ago I finished this cozy herringbone hoodie. I’m completely obsessed with this French terry. As of today I have all 3 colors. 😂 I got them from @merrittmakes , an online fabric shop that has some truly amazing fabrics. I have this French terry in navy, charcoal, and cream. I also have some beautiful tensels that will be very pretty dresses. They even sent me some buttons that match that grey tensel perfectly!!! Thanks guys!!! AND!! I was having the hardest time finding ribbing that matched the navy (perfectly) and then I somehow found THE EXACT COLOR (heather lake) at @imaginegnats online shop and I just about died. That never happens! If I hadn’t been obsessively looking at all the ribbing in all the independent fabric shops 😂😂😂 I wouldn’t have found it. I’ll probably make some Hudson Pants with the rest of the navy that I have and hoodies from the charcoal and the cream. Making your own clothes IS SO SATISFYING. #makemyowndamnclothes #makersgonnamake #apparelsewing #cozycozy #frenchterryfordays #mccalls6614

Here are my first three completely handmade garments: 1. #arenitepants by @sewliberated ... made in a black linen blend. No fancy cuff... just basic hem. Totally enjoyed making this pattern, flat felled seams are fun... in a weird way. Def more pants in my future. 2. #matchatoppattern also by @sewliberated in a cotton ikat... I completely messed up this collar.... but #madeitwork with some vintage buttons and no ones the wiser... lastly, 3. A Lisette by @lieslgibson for @simplicity_creative_group shirt dress in a linen blend that didn’t really work as a dress, but makes a lovely lightweight jacket. I’m not proud of the collar (sensing a trend) but this was my first garment since I started sewing apparel, so it will forever hold a place in my 💗... despite its flaws. Finally, being your own model is completely embarrassing! Bare with me as I get used to sharing my makes. Photo creds all day to @kinglaffytaffy 😘 #instahusband
Couldn’t resist this lovely blue floral silk and yellow wool/cotton combo. So pretty together. . . . #makerslucktravels #makeallthethings #portoportugal #apparelsewing
GUYSSSSS I finished the jacket I was working on on stream and I love it sooo much 😍😭😍! I keep walking over and looking at it in the mirror 😂. The modern animal print and the coordinating squares in the hidden pocket are both from the preorder happening at @elephanthousefabrics which started today and runs through 10/14. I'm super thrilled I was able to sew it up for them because I legit love the custom prints these ladies put out, not to mention that they are super sweet! If you're interested in checking out the preorder collection, I have a link in my linktree (in my profile). The pattern is my absolute favorite jacket pattern mash from @newhorizonsdesigns , the Summit Peak Hoodie with the TAMI Revolution standard hood. Is it wrong to feel so fullfilled by sewing? #elephanthousefabrics #ehfab #ehfabrics #ontheroadround #newhorizonsdesigns #frenchterry #summitpeakhoodie #tamirevolutionhoodie #strikeoffsewing #sewingismyhappyplace #millennialsewing #apparelsewing #jacket #imakethings #zipup #fallsewing #modernanimals #twitchcreative #madeonstream #twitchstreamer #twitch #sewing #sewingontwitch
I can finally share the pattern I was testing last week! The Boardwalk Wrap Dress by @newhorizonsdesigns had released today! This is a woven true wrap style dress that has 4 sleeve options and 4 length options (tunic, knee, tea and maxi). This one I made was the knee length sleeveless flounce version and it is in rayon challis. I immediately wanted to test it when I saw the flounce sleeve option and they did not disappoint - I feel so girly and pretty in it! I'm fairly obsessed with the flounce sleeves but I also kept feeling pretty jealous of all the cap sleeve versions I was seeing so that is next on the list to try! It was legitimately windy the day I took these photos (so excuse my hand up in all the pics) and even so I didn't end up flashing anyone with the skirt flying up, wrap or not, so it stays closed where it counts! To put it on, there is a hole in the waistline on the right side of the dress and a tie feeds through there and wraps around your back to the left side. I went into this not being super comfortable sewing wovens when it came to apparel, especially rayon and slippy stuff, but it was such a rewarding make... plus I feel much more confident sewing with this type of material now! Long story short, another pattern I actually love by a designer I love and believe in. There is also a girls version for all of you ladies who like to do mommy and me stuff! If you're interested in checking out the pattern you can find the link via my Linktree link in my profile! #newhorizonsdesigns #boardwalkwrapdress #ifeelpretty #wrapdress #wrapskirt #patterntesting #apparelsewing #sewingwithwovens #newpattern #twitchcreative #twitchstreamer #twitch #sewingismyhappyplace #imakethings #patterntest #flouncesleeves #imadethis #flouncesleevedress

Fence Linen can be somewhat of an illusion!🙃💕 The stripes are made up of diamonds that are made up of tiniest lines - you will love this fabric up close and from afar.

Good morning world, it is October! For some reason I'm kind of excited to be in my birthday month but I don't really know why as I always choose not to do anything in celebration. Perhaps it's just because I'm more of a fall person. Either way, I will be leaving my 20's and saying hello to 30 on the 19th. Also, see that sleeve? 😍 I maaaay or may not be wearing the pattern I was testing last week! Expect a patten release from @newhorizonsdesigns very soon. It's a good one and I'm super excited for it to go live so I can really share! #ifeelpretty #ohsopretty #newhorizonsdesigns #patterntesting #twitchcreative #twitchstreamer #apparelsewing #sewingwithwovens #sneekpeek #sewingismyhappyplace #dirty30

💙How to Make Zippered Cushion Covers – for Beginners💙⠀ .⠀ Do you want to replace your old cushion covers but are scared of sewing zips? Store bought cushion covers can be expensive so making your own is not only satisfying but will save you a lot of money.⠀ .⠀ How to Make Zippered Cushion Covers: Supplies⠀ ✔️Fabric – use decorator fabric or cotton quilting fabrics⠀ ✔️ Your cushion insert⠀ ✔️ Regular and Zipper sewing machine foot⠀ ✔️ Zip – 3 inches (7.5cm) shorter than your pillow insert (Zips are measured along their teeth and not the tape.)⠀ ✔️ Ruler⠀ ✔️ Scissors⠀ ✔️ Pins⠀ .⠀ HOW TO MAKE ZIPPERED CUSHION COVERS: Sewing⠀ ✂️Step One:  First measure your pillow and cut 2 squares of fabric the same size. I purposely haven’t added seam allowance so my finished cover will be snug and my pillow will look firmer. If you want a looser cover you could always add extra 1/2 inch (12mm) seam allowance all the way around.⠀ ✂️Step Two: If you are using a fabric that frays, serger one edge on each of the fabric pieces. This will be the edge we add the zip.⠀ ✂️Step Three: Put your 2 pieces with RIGHT sides together.⠀ ✂️Step Five: Mark with a ruler 2 inches (5cm) from either end on one side of your square (the edge you sergered). We will be sewing the zip between the 2 marks.⠀ ✂️Step Six: Starting at the ends sew along to the marks with a 1/2 inch (12mm) seam allowance. Make sure you back stitch at the ends and marks to hold it securely. Use a small 2.0 length stitch for extra strength.⠀ ✂️Step Seven: Now set your machine to its longest basting stitch length (4.0 and above), and stitch between the 2 marks. Do not back stitch.⠀ ✂️Step Eight: Press open the seam.⠀ ✂️Step Nine: Your zipper needs to be the length in between the 2 marks. Note that zips are measured by the length of their teeth and not the length of the tape. The tape will be longer than the 2 marks.⠀ ⚠️Plastic is easier to shorten than metal. You can also buy zips by the yard if you are making lots of cushion covers. Once you have made one you may be addicted!⠀ ⠀ ⠀ continue in comments

💚DIY Hair Ties – Hairbands with bows💚⠀ .⠀ Make some of these pretty DIY hair ties to match your little girl’s favorite outfits. They are perfect for using up small scrap fabrics and can attach to any kind of elastics.⠀ .⠀ 📌DIY Hair Ties: Supplies⠀ .⠀ ✔️Elastic hair bands. You can use any kind or color. I like the snagless ones without the metal piece as they don’t catch in my daughter’s hair.⠀ ✔️Scraps of fabric. Cotton quilting fabric works the best. Choose fabrics with small prints.⠀ ✔️ Your bow template.⠀ .⠀ 📌DIY Hair Ties: Instructions⠀ .⠀ ✂️Step One: Cut 2 pieces of fabric from the template. The template is fairly small so try and cut and sew fairly accurately. It looks nice if you use a different color fabric for the front and back.⠀ ✂️Step Two: Put the front and back with right sides together and stitch around with a 1/4 inch seam allowance. Leave a 2 inch (5cm) gap on one side in the middle as shown.⠀ ✂️Step Three: Clip the curves and the ends. I like to use pinking shears to reduce bulk. Just make sure to leave the gap untrimmed⠀ ✂️Step Four: Turn the bow to the right side and give it a good press. It is fairly small so you will probably need a chopstick or other blunt instrument to help turn it and poke out the corners.⠀ ✂️Step Five: Make sure the seam allowance at the gap is pressed neatly to the inside. Topstitch around the edge and this will close the gap.⠀ ✂️Step Six: Now grab your hair and tie the bow around it. You just need a single knot. A double knot is too much and will make the bow too small. You can tie it so both sides of the bow are the same color or twist one side around to the contrast color on the back. It is a little fiddly so just take your time and get the look you would like.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #sew #sewing #sewingproject #sewingaddict #sewingpattern #howtosew #sewingtutorial #diy #apparelsewing #hairbands #hairbandswithbows #hairties
I was super excited to sew some strikeoff (see: sample) fabric for @elephanthousefabrics because really love their custom prints - swipe to see last photo for my very favorite deathly hallows shirt I made from their fabric in the past! I love how they keep putting out fabric that works for adults and not just kids. This sequin print is part of a very quick Nutcracker mini preorder round that runs through Wednesday, 9/26. This is a cotton lycra base but there are other bases to choose from. The pattern I used here is again view C (crop top and skirt) of the Zephyr Dress by @deer_and_doe_patterns. #ehfabrics #nutcrackermini #elephanthousefabrics #deeranddoe #deeranddoepatterns #strikeoff #strikeoffsewing #sequins #customfabric #zephyrdress #zephyrcroptop #sewingismyhappyplace #imakemyownclothes #apparelsewing #sewingislife

💜Sleep Mask Tutorial: Cat Mask Free Pattern💜⠀ .⠀ Did you know that the average cat sleeps 15 hours per day? Sometimes when you have kids or a stressful job, you desperately wish you were a cat! Now you can make yourself a cute cat mask with this simple sleep mask tutorial so you can make the most of every minute of sleep.⠀ .⠀ Supplies:⠀ ✔️Cotton fabric for the front and back. Make sure it is soft and breathable. Quilting cotton or flannel is a great choice.⠀ ✔️ Fusible fleece⠀ ✔️ A small scrap of felt for the nose⠀ ✔️ Fabric pen, fabric paint or embroidery floss for the eyes. I used a fabric pen.⠀ ✔️ Elastic for the back of the head. It can be 5/8 inch (1.5cm) to 1/4 inch (6mm). I like fold-over elastic as it comes in pretty colors and is really flat and soft so doesn’t dig-in to your head. Around 13-14″ fits most heads.⠀ ✔️ Your pattern piece.⠀ .⠀ Sleep Mask Tutorial: Instructions:⠀ .⠀ ✂️Step One: Turn your front piece to the wrong side and press on the fusible fleece with the adhesive side down⠀ ✂️Step Two: Decorate the face. Stitch the felt piece on the nose and paint or embroider the eyes. For embroidered eyes, a backstitch works well.  I found the easiest way to transfer the face markings on to my fabric was using dressmakers carbon in a contrast color.⠀ ✂️Step Three: If you use a fabric pen or paint don’t forget to press with your iron to set it. I forgot in the first sample I made and the pen smudged as it wasn’t set properly.⠀ ✂️Step Four: On the right side of the front, baste the elastic in place at the sides. The position is marked on your pattern piece.⠀ ✂️Step Five: Put the front and back with right sides together and stitch around with a 1/4inch (6mm) seam allowance. Make sure you leave a 2 inch (5cm) gap at the top.⠀ ✂️Step Six: Clip the curves of the face and the ears at the corners, leaving the gap unclipped.⠀ ✂️Step Seven: Turn the mask to the right side and give it a good press. Make sure the seam allowance at the gap is folded neatly to the inside. Don’t put the iron on the elastic or acrylic felt as it will melt.⠀ ⠀ continue in comments
