thanks, dawn! I don't see a ton of movies in the theater, either -- though I do watch more at home. seeing one on the big screen is definitely a special occasion.

The World's Longest Tattoo Chain: temporary tattoos of the text of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass. I immediately put my name on the waitlist. Ez and Kaia's adorable new shop. I'm not surprised their handmade softies sold... Continue reading

thank you, Mia :) I'd love to see what you end up making out of yours!

thank you, Inge! I really want to try out a Colette Pattern -- and other Grainline patterns, of course.

aw, thank you, Gloria!

thank you, haley! truly, for the longest time I thought I didn't have any, either -- I do think that watching a bunch of youtube sewing tutorials helped me a lot, since observing someone sewing is so much more helpful than just reading about it. so I'd recommend doing that if you want to try to learn!

thanks, Mimmi! ha, that took me a minute to figure out you were talking about Harry Potter robes :) sounds like a fun project!

thanks so much, Chelsey. I can't even remember if my high school offered sewing! But when I was in the fabric store recently I saw a group of middle-school kids shopping with their teacher, and there were even several boys in the group – it was pretty cute how excited they all were.

Very fun! ;) I bet you'll be making clothes before you know it. Happy sewing, Maja!

thanks, Olga! I hope you're able to convince your mom about Brooklyn Tweed. I would definitely use their patterns if I was better at knitting!
Toggle Commented Nov 4, 2014 on on learning how to sew again at elephantine
You should! And yes, I was also pleasantly surprised when I saw the fabric in person. Ordering fabric online is a bit risky, of course, but I'd read great things about Nani Iro and figured it was worth taking a chance ;)

thanks, Briel! and hah, I've never been called Rache before :)

thanks so much, Annette. I've spent a little time browsing the Coletterie blog and it's fantastic. (I want to try a Colette pattern soon.) And I just bookmarked Flossie Teacakes -- thanks for mentioning it!
