I’m starting to get the hang of sewing, but it’s never bad to learn from a pro with decades of experience, so I made the pilgrimage to my hometown on the Greyhound chariot and took a seat at the bench of my mothers knowledge. Mom made a skirt.

I have been using a Ziploc bag to carry around my toiletries when I’m traveling. I’m a 30 year old man. This is not right. So I righted wrong by sewing a toiletry bag.

My siblings and I were at my mom’s place last weekend to celebrate her birthday so my little nephew and I took the time to film a little story: The tale of the two swordsmen.

I also took the time to sew a button-up shirt for myself this week. It’s been too long since I’ve made one AND I want some more, so it only made sense.

I made a decent bomber jacket, but it lacked a lining, so this week I challenged myself to learn how to sew one.

It was a little difficult seeing as it was my first attempt, but it was quite manageable and in the end, turned out quite nicely. And to keep the pressure low, I used all thrifted & gifted fabrics.

I made some joggers several months ago and they had quite a few problems. Last week I had a throat infection which gave me time to appreciate being healthy and what I should be doing when I’m well: being physically active & getting out.

I sewed a bomber jacket out of upholstery fabric a while back and it didn’t turn out like I had hoped, so I took a look at the mistakes and made the improvements on this coat.

I procrastinated, panicked and then scrambled last minute to come up with an idea for this week’s sewing video. I rushed to the thrift store, got a bed sheet and decided to just make a shirt.

Not only did it not go well, I had a not so helpful personality come give me a visit.

Most worthwhile things in life take twice as much time and effort than expected, or at least that’s what I am telling myself with these upcycled denim jeans.

I “finished” said jeans last week, but they were just a touch too big so this week I decided to take the extra time and tailor the jeans to get them just right.

Last week I took apart the oversize jeans I bought and this week I went about sewing my own pair.

It was more work than I anticipated and they didn’t quite turn out like I had planned. They have real 90s vibes about them, but they are a learning lesson and I figure I can just lean into the whole dad jeans thing. Own it, you know?
