lladybird Employee Christmas party tonight at @elizsuzann's! I'll spare y'all the photo of @alfierivera3 ripping his pants during beer pong, instead, here is one of my many crafty contributions of the evening. Googly eyes make everything 100x funnier, fact 2d

lladybird Kind of impossible to have a bad day when you've got this kind of holiday splendor on your body 2d
  •   letstweed Well a christmas sweater might be what I need, cause I'm having a terrible day so far... 2d
  •   laurablackwell I thought it had weird green legs until I saw they were ribbons 2d

lladybird My dad gifted us a subscription to The Family Handyman magazine I will be building all the Murphy beds now 5d
  •   sickofitcindy Shouldn't it be "The Family Handyperson"? 5d
  •   tattooedlovers My dad got a subscription to that from his sister and he gives me all his old ones. Murphy beds 4 lyfe. 5d
  •   jetsetsewing I think it's much harder to learn to sew, so Murphy beds should be a breeze. 5d
  •   k_goldstein_628 I had this subscription for a couple of years. Some fun ideas and decent tool reviews. 5d
  •   tillybuttons Rock n roll!! 5d
  •   makingitwell I remember an episode of the Simpsons where the motel had on its sign, "our beds are the murphiest!" Made me laugh! 4d

lladybird Love it when people destash directly to me - and especially when the fabrics are so beautifully coordinated! Silk, merino and cotton from @thenerdyseamstress - yay, thank you so much, Kathy! I love them!! 5d

lladybird @landonwrong's jacket is finished! Now I can go back to my usual selfish sewing 6d
  •   karentempler 6d
  •   karla.edin I'm pretty impressed by those toggles. I bought the ones at the big box sewing store and then regretted it, but had spent too much on them to change course. 6d
  •   ihavenosewingfriends Ha ha, I don't time mine either was just looking for a ball park - an idea of how much I might speed up with a few years' exprerience behind me ! I am crazy slow and my BFF is a seam ripper right now Super work from you and Thanks for always taking the time to respond so thoughtfully to comments 6d
  •   lladybird @karla.edin I initially chose to make mine just bc of the cost (those pre-made ones are expensive!!), but I am also thinking that they just look a lot nicer too. Didn't take much longer to make, either! 6d
  •   lladybird @ihavenosewingfriends ain't no shame in going slow! Or using the seam ripper for that matter - I have them scattered all over my sewing room bc they are in constant use haha 6d
  •   thenerdyseamstress Wow! You're fast! Looks good! 6d
  •   littlegreenorchids Yes! Well done! That plaid lining looks so great with your fabric choice. He better wear it every day. ;-) 6d
  •   cathysewsstuff Looks great 6d

lladybird A year later, I'm giving the Walden toggle coat another try. The first muslin was wretched, so I'm hoping these fitting changes translate well for muslin 2! @landonwrong better LOVE this coat! 2w
  •   lovelolabk can I throw some Benjamins and you and you can make two.. so I can tell my boyfriend I totally did the coat he's been asking me for 2w
  •   lovelolabk 💷💶 2w
  •   neoknits Making the sleeve me sized almost broke me! 2w
  •   thequirkypeach Just starting this too! What kinds of fitting problems did you run into?? 2w
  •   sandra_stitch I made this for my son this winter and it was a dream to sew. I had to grade between sizes for his shape, but such a great coat. 2w
  •   lladybird @lovelolabk lol girl we will see if I even get the one for MY boyfriend finished hahaha 2w
  •   lladybird @thequirkypeach just the kind of fitting problems that happen when your dude isn't the same body type as the size model! Lots of little tweaks were needed 2w
  •   nycbookwriter I was wondering if you'd hit this one again...I'm doing my Dad's... 1w

lladybird Went to an art show last night and my friend Brent gave me this office set he printed with his 3-D printer. Thimble is for scale. So tiny, so adorable, so futuristic 2w
  •   sewruthlessly The ability to "print" an item in 3D amazes me. To think I grew up with rotary phones, record players and mimiograghs- it's incredible the technology that keeps being created. The human imagination is fantastic! Thanks for sharing this @lladybird ! 2w
  •   flossieinstitches You need to sit a little Lego figure on that chair Lauren! 2w

lladybird I just unpacked all the fabric I bought in London and Paris. I guess I have a lot of prewashing to do now #lladybirdinlondon 3w
  •   the_stitcher_and_gatherer My dear..you weren't trying hard enough..you could have worn at least 5 "scarves" onto the plane...no one would have been suspicious. ... 3w
  •   agatheringofstitches For what, a week? over there, I think you showed remarkable restraint.... Nice haul! 3w
  •   whatpiggydoes Nice haul...I think it's good not to go too crazy shopping overseas...easier to see what you've got this way. 3w

lladybird I will live on Party Rings for the remainder of my time on this earth #lladybirdinlondon 3w
  •   jollygoodlimey They are pretty good!!! 3w
  •   thistlesniffing For me, Party Rings are like channelling 1974....so its like a double whammy of joy ;0) 3w
  •   sparklysupernova I love that you get excited over english food like I get excited over American goodies!!! 3w
  •   makesewdo Yay, glad you got some! Are they going to have to fight for suitcase space with the fabric? 3w
  •   lladybird @sparklysupernova we ate the shit out of these last time I was here (along with Spice Girls potato chips... If that's any indication of how long it's been haha); I was really happy to see that they still exist! 3w

lladybird Shopping date with @tillybuttons today! I'm a little fabric'd out after Paris, but managed to squeeze a little piece from Cloth House in my bag #lladybirdinlondon 3w
  •   lladybird @jqrd I know! I'm so glad I brought it - I would have been miserable with that heavy coat (although it came in handy, too!). And yes, you can totally be fabric'd out if your suitcase doesn't have room for anymore hahaha! 3w
  •   makesewdo Ooh what did you get? 3w
  •   lladybird @makesewdo just a red and white striped knit! Very basic and "where's Waldo"-esque, but it feels really nice! 3w
  •   makesewdo @lladybird I like their knits - it's where both my coco knits came from :) 3w
  •   sljuls Glad you're having a good trip! 3w
  •   jetsetsewing I bought a couple more meters in Paris and my bag was officially stuffed. 3w
  •   seagyrl Can one ever have too much fabric? 3w
  •   mmichiko2 Can you tell me which places to go in Paris? I am in Germany & heard Paris is the closest place to get anything... 2w

lladybird Day 26: Red Hot Mess. I don't ever save my sewing fails, as I'd rather hide them in a pile destined for Goodwill and pretend they never happened. OBVIOUSLY. However, let's all take a moment to reflect and remember the time I made this hideous Amy Butler bag that immediately went straight for the trash (this picture is deceivingly good. It was PRETTY bad in real life ) #bpSewvember 3w
