bobbypinbandit After a long and hectic week, it sure was great to come home and find a surprise in the mail. Well, it wasn't a surprise, I picked out the fabric, but it was up to the postman to deliver with a surprise I adore the organic and import fabrics from @fabricworm #sew #coser #makersgonnamake #fabricworm 3d

  •   taralee.peace So many cute hexies! 6d
  •   taralee.peace I'm stitching hexies while it's raining outside too. 6d
  •   bobbypinbandit @taralee.peace I adore hexie making! I am so grateful for our rainy season, it helps eliminate some of our crazy heat! 6d
  •   jessiealler That is precisely the thread I used to use for basting, until I ran out. How funny to see it in your kit. 6d
  •   taralee.peace Ah, I'm not a fan of the heat either. I'm enjoying the cooler weather now before summer gets here. Spring starts next week! Stay cool lovely! 6d
  •   bobbypinbandit @jessiealler It was an impulse purchase, but I have come to love it for my hexie making stash. Have you ever tried it for anything other than basting? I have yet to try it for anything other than hexies. 6d
  •   bobbypinbandit @taralee.peace We have been experiencing 100+ degrees (38+ in celsius) and it's just become a challenge to stay cool. I usually love the heat, but now it's overkill. I wish it were springtime here, although, in the low desert we don't really experience distinct seasons. 6d
  •   jessiealler I may have done a tiny bit of hand quilting with it, but then the rest of the spool went to basting. :-) 6d

bobbypinbandit It's finally a quiet morning around here, the type of morning that deserves teeny tiny #mice. Used one of my favorite @dandelyne hoops for the teeny #mouse pattern from a Japanese #embroidery book. Turned a small piece of #heatherross fabric into a brooch, and @quiltystitches gifted me the crochet #cherries #bordado #handembroidery #bordadoamano #handmade #hechoamano #ratoncito #tbt #throwback #throwbackthursday 2w

Thank you so much for so many wonderful items!! I am totally amazed at the coasters with all my favorite characters from #TheWitches, #JamesandtheGiantPeach, #FantasticMrFox, and the best quote from a #theTwits !

bobbypinbandit Sunday #sewing session. Hand sewing the binding down on more editions of the #pocketpartypouch Pattern by @michaelannn I think hand sewing is one of my most favorite things to do. That's probably why I enjoy hand embroidery so much. #michaelannpatterns #sew #coser #handmade #hechoamano 4w

bobbypinbandit Have you seen the @truecostmovie yet? The film is available as an instant view on Netflix. I watched the documentary yesterday and it got me thinking so much about not only where I buy my clothes and where they are manufactured, but where does the fabric I love to #sew with come from. I used to design, sew, and make a lot of my clothes when I was in high school and as an undergrad. It's time to get back to that. Photo is of a #vintage #Mexican #embroidered dress from my closet. #truecostmovie #recyclefashion 1mon
  •   jesuisjustemoi I'll have to check out this film. After going to the WWII fashion exhibition at the Imperial War museum yesterday and now reading more about the rationing of clothing and the "Make do and mend" campaign it's got me thinking more about making, altering, fixing, etc. the stuff I have. 1mon
  •   bobbypinbandit @jesuisjustemoi This film definitely echoes that sentiment, while also showing us the inhumane nature of fast fashion and the garment industry and how it impacts the communities and people who work in and around the factories where these clothes are made. It was eye opening for sure, and made an impact on me. I will definitely be mending what I already have and making more clothes with fabrics that I know were ethically made, as far down as the cotton growers not using pesticides on their farms. It's a brilliant film, albeit tragic, but I think it's necessary in order to effect change and it definitely changed my thinking in a major way. 1mon

bobbypinbandit I finally picked up a copy of @amysinibaldi 's book #sweetlystitchedhandmades and #stitched up her darling #homesweethome #embroidery pattern. I am really digging the #neapolitan ice cream color scheme she put together for this pattern. I think I want to make everything in her book!! #handembroidery #bordadoamano #bordado #SweetlyStitchedSAL #SSHSAL4 1mon

bobbypinbandit The inside of my #tinyboxzippy from a #michaelannmade pattern. It's a little scrappy, because I decided to use bias tape I had on hand instead of making more ️ I am so obsessed with #heatherrossfabrics 1mon

bobbypinbandit Finally cut into my #farfaraway #heatherrossfabrics to make the exterior of my #tinyboxzippy using the #michaelannmade pattern. I just adore the princess and the pea! I hold onto all my #heatherross scraps, so I added a little pincushion to what will be my new #sewing kit. #noscrapleftbehind 1mon
