*Deep-Breath*, I am making this out to be much bigger than it probably is or ever will be, however!!!, I am really excited.  I launched The Bored Seamstress, on etsy a couple of days ago.  I am making the small baby steps towards Full Operating Capability (FOC).  I plan on producing such things like:



PJs – Two Designs (one elastic, one drawstring)



And Bags!

In addition, I will provide only quality products from quality fabrics from my favorite designers like – Amy Butler (DUH), Joel Dewberry, Robert Kaufman, Michael Miller and Alexander Henry…and I am sure I will find others. 

I have designed my fabric tag and it is currently being produced, by a fellow “Etsy’ier” BellaMental, and hope to be sewing them in as soon as they arrive! Here it is!  The Bored Seamstress

I have only posted a couple of yards of fabric online so far.  No finished items, but that will soon change upon achieving FOC.  I will post on the blog what I have listed on Etsy and what I have finished. 

I can’t wait to see where this goes!


Most know I am a huge fan of Amy Butler, all of her fabrics and her designs.  In her book, In Stitches, she had a pattern for Wide Leg Lounge Pants….just to see how different my orignial pjs are to hers, of course I had to try. 

As for form and function, not too different.  Small differences took a little extra time, such as sewing a drawstring, making button holes and seam-ripping my mistake on the left leg :(.  They all came together nicely though, not bad for a first time. 

These are for my soon-to-be Sister-In-Law.  I also tried something new, see the applique fish I sewed on?  I cut that out of some fabric leftover from my brother’s pair I made him about 2 years ago.  I have a hard time getting rid of my fabric.  Either way, these will soon be hitting the streets, or the sheets, so to speak.
