Miniature Vestments

Chasubles - Miniature Catholic Priest Vestments

I don't often volunteer to do sewing projects for other people, but I was more than willing to make an exception for this project. We are so happy to have the "Catechisis of the Good Shepherd" catechism program available to our children. It is a program based of of the work Maria Montessori that guides the children on their spiritual path to knowing and … [Read more...]

How This Dino Made Me Smile

Zipper-Mouthed Dinosaur Softie, sewn by SewFearless.com

I am blessed beyond measure to have turned this sewing-blogging hobby of mine into a little business. I never would have dreamed that it would be possible when I committed to learning 7 years ago. However, Wednesday I was struck with a fear that maybe I just didn't enjoy sewing anymore. Every attempt was interrupted , and the pants sewing has been … [Read more...]

Tiny Sewists

G is proud of herself

I'm guest posting at A Jennuine Life today, sharing one of my kid's sewing tips for her Tiny Sewists Series. Gianna used this tip to sew herself a pair of fleece pajama pants, with a little help of course. If you are new here, you might enjoy some of these past kid-made sewing projects.

It feels like a lifetime ago that Abby Glassenberg put out a request for pattern testers for her book "Stuffed Animals: From Concept to Construction*." Soon after, I was stitching up this cutie-patoot elephant. I was thrilled to death with how he turned out, but I had to keep him a secret until the book release (which was this week)! Two-ish years of … [Read more...]

Andy_Bonjour_1231335

I want to thank you all for your sweet comments and encouragement on my last, rather depressing, post. I like to keep it real as much as I am able on this blog and sharing my "failures", while a little scary, was incredibly cathartic. Now that I've processed through the disappointments, I am able to get back to the heart of this holy time. That being … [Read more...]

Giving the Gift of Sewing to a Child

fabric for kids sewing - sewfearless.com

Not content with brainwashing my own children into loving sewing, this Christmas I've decided reach out to my nieces, aged 7 and 9, as well. For their gift, I've put together a complete sewing kit. In my mind, this will make me the coolest auntie ever. I hope the girls (and their mom) agree. We shall see. … [Read more...]

Millie the Mermaiden, Made by Gianna

Millie the Mermaiden by Gianna - SewFearles.com

It took 2 years of it lying around the house before Gianna picked up Wee Wonderfuls: 24 Dolls to Sew and Love* and asked me to sew with her. It is totally surprising that it took so long, because if you have seen the book yourself, you know it is chock-full of totally adorable projects.   The project she fell in love with was "the Mermaiden". (You can … [Read more...]
