On the Cutting Table #1

Share

Want a sneak peek on what I’m planning on sewing next? I love doing those kind of posts because it helps me thinking what I have on my pile, and to prioritize the few projects I want to do next. I rarely ever actually go through all of them in this order, but I still get most of […]

Sewing Fail | McCalls 6930

Share

Just to keep this blog true, I’m here today to share a #Fail project. They happen. To everyone, even the super awesome experienced people out there who sew a ton, it happens to all of us, and it happened to me as well. Sigh. Not everything turns out perfect, I guess. See below: Doesn’t look […]

Blogroll | My Favorite Sewing Blogs

Share

Just for the record, this is officially becoming a sewing blog. Sewing is quickly replacing all of my other hobbies, so it’s not surprising that this blog is reflecting that as well. I still love to photograph, read, go on hikes, and travel, so this blog won’t always be 100% about sewing. It will always […]

Anita Boeira is now Sew Anita

Share

Hello! You might have noticed that things look a bit different around here today. That’s because I spent this past week coming up with a new brand for my blog and website! I felt it was time for a change, my latest blog redesign dates from early 2012, and at that time, it was just […]

Completed Project: Simplicity 1419 Dress

Share

Ta-da my latest completed sewing project! The Simplicity 1419 dress. It looked so adorable on the package, I had to have it. It went straight up to my to-do pile, where it ended up being held up by a couple of shirts (I need separates more than I need dresses) and hanged unfinished in my sewing […]

1 | 2 | 3 It’s summer, and even though I’m not a fan of hot weather, I can’t help but be inspired by the other things that the hot weather can be reminiscent of: time spent at the beach, vacation, palm trees, and tropical everything.  And then I saw this awesome fabric from Michael […]

Vogue Patterns Fall 2014

Share

Vogue just announced last night a bunch of new patterns for Fall 2014. Fall is not as exciting as Spring/Summer, so all patterns felt very bleh. But a few stood out, so I thought I’d make a quick pattern wishlist for next $5,99 sale! V1408 – At first glance this dress doesn’t look very exciting, […]

#SundaySewing |A Sewing Room Tour

Share

Hello, hello, come on in. Don’t mind the mess. I thought today would be a great day to share what my sewing room looks like! I was away the past two weekends on a road trip (hope you checked my posts on Portland and Seattle already!). I have a dress that I almost finished before […]

Nachos Quest: BBQ Nachos in Boise, ID

Share

It’s been WAY too long since I blogged about my Nachos quest, over a year to be exact (blame it on the healthy lifestyle). If you’re new here, you might not have heard about my quest to find the best nachos I ever ate, and that pretty much sums it up: I go out, I eat […]

Seattle Trip Report

Share

It was just so much fun writing and taking pictures of our trip to Portland, I made sure I did the same in Seattle. We didn’t eat out as much as we did in Portland, but on the other hand, we covered a lot more touristy attractions in the emerald city. Places we visited: (from […]
