Otium Top Pattern by Sofilantjes | Tour & Giveaway!


Hey! It's Friday!!! Seems like a good day for a Pattern Tour! I had so much fun on the last Sofilantjes pattern tour, I'm back - this time with the Otium Top! Like the Omni Tempore, this pattern is available for adults and kids. It is a relaxed fit shirt with sleeve cuffs & waistband with neckline, sleeve & shirt front variations! I have a serious lack of long sleeve options in my wardrobe so I grabbed this purple sweater knit at F&M Fabrics. (You can find them online at … [Read more...]

The Amazing Ultimate DIY Bundle

Ultimate DIY Bundle | JaimeSews

There aren’t enough hours in the day, right? With work, helping the kids with their schoolwork, preparing meals, cleaning up after everyone and putting yet another load of laundry on, there’s very little time for sleep – let alone DIY and crafting! But do you look at that bare wall in the den and that tatty tablecloth on the kitchen table, and just wish you had a few hours to do something about them? Or do you browse through those wonderful crafting successes on Pinterest and think to … [Read more...]

Miss Kate Jelly Roll Quilt

Miss Kate Jelly Roll Quilt | JaimeSews

If you're looking for a quick and easy quilt with big impact, you've got to try making a Jelly Roll quilt! Maybe I'm the last person on the quilting planet to try Jelly Rolls, but what a great way to get a whole line of fabric in one small bite and be able to enjoy each and every print! Last fall, my Modern Quilt Guild group handed out instructions for a jelly roll quilt and encouraged us all to get our supplies and sew it up at the next meeting. I quickly went down my list of family and … [Read more...]

Rediscover your Creativity – FREE Course!


A 2nd blog post this week?!? I KNOW - I want to share an incredible FREE mini-course that I’ve just been told about, because I have a feeling it could be perfect for you! Many of my friends and readers comment that they love what I do and often feel so inspired to do it themselves, but they either don’t have the time or they’re worried they'll mess it up! As much as I try to reassure them that there’s ALWAYS time (and perfection is overrated), they struggle to figure out how to fit creative … [Read more...]

More Pajama Eaters

Pajama Eaters Pattern by SewFearless | JaimeSews

Today I'm sharing with you some Pajama Eaters I made for a new friend. You may remember I was in a craft fair earlier in November. The gals I met there were so incredible and I'm so glad to be able to remain in touch with them. One asked me to make some PJ Eaters for her to give as Christmas gifts and her requests were so fun & gave me a lot of room for creativity! This first one I made for her son. He has a dinosaur themed room in these colors, but she also requested this PJ Eater have … [Read more...]

MQG Mini Swap

BMQG Mini Quilt Swap | JaimeSews

Happy New Year!!! This week marks the week back into routine and schedule for us. My husband is back to work today after taking a combination of holidays and vacation days for about a week and a half and, I'm not gonna lie, it's been fun to have some vacation, but I'm ready for the return of the routine! We've also been doing some woodworking, building a farmhouse bed, over the vacation (you may have seen sneak previews of it on instagram), which has become an annual tradition that I love/hate. … [Read more...]

Sweet Innocence Christmas Dress

Sweet Innocence Dress Pattern by MyTreasuredHeirlooms | JameSews

Merry Christmas! I hope you enjoyed your time with Family & Friends - we've had a full week of celebrations! A couple months back, Annastasia,  the designer at My Treasured Heirlooms, announced she was in the process of updating her Sweet Innocence Dress and she was looking for a few seamstresses to sew it up and help spread the word! I instantly fell in love with the look of this pattern. It's so classically girly and feminine and I thought it'd make a great Christmas Dress. It was a … [Read more...]

Airplane Quilt

Airplane Quilt | JaimeSews

Well this is a finish 8 months in the making! I've finally finished the airplane quilt for the newest member of the family on my husband's side. Looking back, I purchased the pattern back on April 11, 2014 and the fabrics at the end of April with the intent to make the quilt for Megan's shower in May. If you follow me on Instagram, you may remember seeing some pictures of fabric and even the airplane blocks around August. When Megan and Brian found out they were having a boy, they … [Read more...]

Give a Sewing Class This Christmas

(Sponsored Post*) There is nothing as inspiring as attending a class or sewing guild with a group of local sewers where you can chat with people who are as passionate as you are about your craft! For this reason I make an effort each month to attend our local Modern Quilt Friendship Group! But I know that in some stages of life, it's harder to get away from the house (like for instance, when you have small kids without readily available childcare, or you work full time and need to be home for … [Read more...]
