DYI Projects/Sewing

Place where you can find all things DYI, Sewing, and anything I do for home. 

I really just want to take a moment and say thank you to Mimi G for putting on such a fabulous event this year.  There was so much information that was taught this year, I can’t wait to get started implementing the tricks and tips and information I have learned over a three day period.  For those who don’t know Mimi G is a style influencer and blogger. She has patterns out through simplicity and various video tutorials on you-tube. If you have ever wanted to learn how to sew or needed inspiration to get back into sewing, she is the one that you need to check out.

Hi everyone! Today I wanted to share one of my favorite DYI Body Scrub recipes with you all.

Hope you will give it a try.  Great to use while soaking in the tub or in the shower.

Happy Monday!! I have spent the last couple of days finally starting my Elizabethan underpinnings for my Renaissance gown I decided to make some months ago.  I have to say that I have always loved the way the gowns looked and felt from that period of time. If you love historical movies like I do then you guys definitely have something in common with me.  I absolutely loving costuming and if this project goes well, then I would love to see what else I can create in the future. I have attached a few pictures of the start of my corset. I as go through the steps I will post pictures of my updates!!
