An “Uh huh…” moment.

So here lately I’ve been trying to sew up some Empire Dress made with the free Puchi Collective pattern.  I have not been able to make one for some reason.  I honestly felt so stupid because even beginner sewers were doing it without a problem.  I got so frustrated after my 4th try.  I’ve recently bought some beautiful fabric and I have beautiful fabric I bought over the past few years all ready to be made into cute and stylish clothing, but I couldn’t use it because I couldn’t figure out the pattern.  Then I remembered a small note that said to make sure the pattern printed at the size indicated.  It had a line on the pattern that you needed to measure to make sure it came out right.  You guessed it, I didn’t print the pattern out at the right size.  Ahhhhh!!!  :-(  I feel so stupid.  I always like to cut corners so I don’t have to futz with things, but now I have to go and try to figure out how to get my printer to print it in the proper size.  Guess I will be hitting Google for some answers.  Wish I had something to show you all, still working on the one project I started and have had to futz with because it wasn’t working together properly.  But I think I may start selling a line of interior design items for dolls.  I may not be able to make furniture like the lovely Smidge Girl, Corset Kitten, or Milk, but maybe I can make lovely items to accent those items.  Carpets anyone?  :-)  I’ll show you that soon I promise, just need to work out some kicks.  I’m kind of worried the carpet I am making will either rip me off or be expensive. It takes a good amount of time to make them and if I put the time in I would like to get paid for it, but I don’t want to charge to much.  This is also a part of selling things I hate, pricing.  But won’t worry about that for now.  Ok, I’m off, enjoy the rest of your weekend my lovelies.  And be good.

Loves ya,


  1. I have "Uh-huh" moments all the time, I think they make up most of my sewing time. And I can't wait to see your carpet.

  2. So nice to know I'm not the only one. I feel like I am so stupid when it comes to sewing sometimes. But in the end it is due to my lack of reading directions or being to lazy to take an extra step. This will teach me for next time.


Hello my lovelie, what's on your mind?
