Had my first international donut while in Barcelona! #chökthechocolatekitchen
Really happy with the #cannespattern by @kommatiapatterns. Love any top that shows off my shoulders.
Repost of my big sis (#sororitylife) wearing the #dunbartop I made. It came out too big for me, but just right for all her muscles. 💪💪
Made these leggings to start off all my fitness goals.💪 It's hard to see, but down the middle is a leopard print insert. I'm mostly happy with it, but the waistband came out way too high even after shortening it a bit, so it is now a fold over. As expected, I had to shorten the length a lot, but I also had to narrow it from the knee down and let it out a tiny bit from the thigh up. I also did a lot of top stitching around the insert because the leopard material is slightly transparent and I didnt want to worry about the seam allowance flipping out and showing through, and I really like how it looks. #simplicity8218
Making these his and her's Hudsons for our winter travels was one of the best things I've ever made. So warm and cozy even in a true winter. I spent a lot of time looking for the right fabric and I'm glad I did because this knit from @joann_stores is so soft and warm. #sewallthehudsons
Tried to take some cute pictures of Mushu in the Christmas hoodie I made her, and got this instead. (She's not evil, just caught about to sneeze.) Used a pattern from Etsy and come out great!
I was inspired by this @rtabrand hoodie (swipe right for the inspo) and had to make it! It's sparkly and so extra but still comfy af. It's my new go-to weekend piece. I used #m7688 view a/c, without any of the bands and widened the back and sleeves. It was a super quick make, probably one of most worn things I've ever made. 
This fabric was also great to work with. It hid the stitches really well and didn't shift.  It's also really soft. Picked it up from Joann's.  @mccallpatterncompany #handmadewithjoann
So excited to finally be able to share this awesome skirt. Pockets for days!! The #pattipocketskirt is a must if you appreciate the ability to hold things. Now available from @amynicolestudio. Also, it's specially drafted for petites, so basically meant to be mine.
Accurate representation of yesterday's outfit and mood. These cropped pants have been barely unfinished for a couple weeks and I finally convinced myself to do the handstitched hem. They are an altered version of the Burda pattern I previously used, but with a wide leg and no stitch line down the front.
A few hours ago, I decided I wanted to wear something new tomorrow. So, I made something new. #ogdencami
Slightly cropped t shirt with sneaky panda print (swipe for close up) #memade
In the words of my good friend, "if you don't compliment yourself, who will?" Wearing my first Ogden Cami with a blazer for work. #ogden @truebias
