Sewing with Just for Me January
by A Crazy Craft Lady
Sadly, it seems like the only time I get to sew lately is if I sign up for a blog tour or to do testing! My job keeps me pretty busy during the day and my kids’ activities keep me hopping at night. I have to admit though that I’ve started to sew a few things for myself, but this may in fact be the first thing I’ve completed for myself in the last 10-15 years!
The only thing keeping me somewhat same from working the crazy hours this past month is crafting, but sewing isn’t very portable so I’ve been doing a lot of crochet work. I’ll have to share some pictures of those on here next time!
I honestly hate pictures of myself since I still have 30 more pounds I want to shed, but I am super happy that I did finally finish something just for me!!
This is the SisBoom Dana Pattern and I made it as dress length. I used every piece of the two yards of the Black Damask fabric that I had ordered from One Red Blossom back at the end of August. It’s actually pretty speedy for me to use something from that recent of an order and not stash it in my hoard!

Can you keep a secret? Since I totally trust my Paganelli Peeps, I’m going to let it all out…just don’t tell my boss…
You guys, I have the BEST job in the world! I get to be surrounded by incredible people and breathtaking fabrics all day. We chat, we work, we craft, there are puppies here…what more could you ask for? I feel so incredibly lucky and grateful to have landed a job with Sis Boom that if someone dared me to eat dirt, I’d totally do it!
So, what has me jumping for joy today? The answer is: the job perks, of course!
Yesterday the most incredible dress arrived at the office and I got to try it on!!
This patchwork Good Company (in stores November 2014) dress was inspired by a J.Crew silhouette and the seamstress absolutely nailed it! Not only was it super comfortable, but it ended up being super convenient during a business meeting as well. When speaking about Jennifer’s upcoming line, Good Company (did I mention it will be available in stores November 2014), I simply stood up to reveal what was to come!
What else did I do for the hour I spent in the dress? Craft and snap some selfies, of course!
Hope everyone enjoys the sneak peek at the collection!
The Sis Boom Collective market opens!!! 8pm for the US and 10 PM tomorrow Saturday in Australia!!! I am beside myself with anticipation. It has been so joyful to see all the contributions to this collective. Karynne Johnson of Chook Shed Design and Christie of Christies Quilting Boutique have organized quite a fiesta!! I am so moved by all the love! Get there and if you see something pounce, it moves quickly..just write sold and its yours!!
