NEW Bellevue Top

Bellevue Top | JaimeSews

The week before last, I was heading out of town to tag along with my husband while he attended a conference for work. Just before we left, I saw the tester call for Straight Stitch Design's new pattern, the Bellevue Top**. I loved it, but my rational self said I had too much on my plate so I packed up and drove to the coast, all the time thinking about Bellevue. A few days later on our way home, we stopped at the Outlets to see if we could find some treasures. I strolled around Anne Taylor and … [Read more...]

My New Juki Exceed F-600 | JaimeSews

I've been keeping a secret I can no longer hold in and I can't wait to share with you today! I'm sure it's not a shock for those of you who saw one of my machines up for sale, but I have purchased a new sewing machine, the Juki HZL-F600 and I am IN LOVE! A few years ago, SewMamaSew collected a list of blog posts reviewing a WIDE variety of sewing machines. I am going to use their questions below in my review of this machine, but if you're in the market for a machine and want to know what real … [Read more...]

Jungle Baby!

Jungle Baby Quilt | JaimeSews

Back in November I was a vendor at a small craft fair with some amazing local artisans. We spread the word about the event to each of our circles and I had a great time seeing some new and old friends in person after mostly interacting over Facebook & other social media. One of those friends who came by told me her daughter would be having a baby soon, near the end of January, and she wanted to have a baby quilt made for the little guy. After the holidays we met up at the fabric store and … [Read more...]

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!

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!

Source

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...]
