I have always been a fan of makeup. I’ve been seeing all these posts about Younique’s 3D mascara and have been ignoring it forever. I finally decided to give it a try and I fell in love! I wasn’t expecting great results, but it really is as good as everyone talks about! I decided to [...]
Hey everyone! I had the opportunity to test the new Skinny Pant pattern by Jocole. It is currently available as part of the Pattern Revolution Bundle Up Sale, but will be available on it’s own in Jocole’s shop on July 10th.
The one thing I highly recommend doing is making a muslin first. I tend to [...]
Did you guys see my tutorial posted a few weeks back on Pattern Revolution for how to turn the Peek-A-Boo Lullaby Line Bodysuit into a dress?
I seriously love this on my daughter!
I have been doing a lot of sewing lately, but not a lot of posting. I recently tested the Asymmetrical Top from EYMM. I did both the adult and kids version.
I love these tops, they are seriously so comfortable. I prefer these over t-shirts because I am more comfortable and I actually look more stylish. [...]
I have a hard time finding pants that fit me well. I decided to try to make some based on some pants I already had and try adjusting them.

Hi everyone! I’m back today to share with you this awesome bag pattern, the Knotty Girl Boho Bag by Red Label. I’ve gotten to know the lady behind the pattern on another online sewing group and have been along with her on her journey to releasing this pattern. This is the fourth bag that I’ve [...]
Although I mainly focus on sewing for my kids, I do occasionally sew for me. I bought the Crossover Tunic/Dress from Jocole a while back and made it as a dress to wear to church right after my daughter was born. Because of the crossover I could nurse comfortably with it. So when Jodi was [...]
The second pattern I tested for The Cottage Mama was the Miss Matilda Dress and Top.
I did a re-test of the larger sizes and I think Lindsay nailed it. It’s a simple dress, but the ruffle at the neck and down the front adds the perfect little touch.
She insisted on wearing this dress two weeks [...]
I blindly signed up to be a tester for The Cottage Mama, and I have to say I am so glad I did! I wasn’t really familiar with her patterns, but I have to say that Lindsay is extremely talented and I am so happy that I got to work with her.
First off I tested [...]
