Sew Much Color!!!

See what I did there?

As some of you already know, I recently got a new sewing machine. Something I’m super excited about.

For the record, my previous machine was also a Brother and is 20 years old… I’m 23… It’s the machine I learned to sew on as a child.

As sad as I am to see it go… It was time.

I HIGHLY recommend the Brother brand to all who enjoy sewing. From beginners to experts!

I absolutely ADORE my new machine… Plus its PINK!!!

Anyways, back to all the colors! I’m super excited about my current sewing project!

Something I wish I would have learned a long time ago is the importance of keeping dust OUT of your machine, I was a kid, I didn’t know any better! Regardless, my old machine still lasted me 20 years… And for the record, it still works 99% of the time… It’s just VERY outdated and missing a few parts… Which I couldn’t even begin to tell you what parts I’ve lost to it over the years… And RIDICULOUSLY dusty on the inside!!! I honestly have no clue how to even take it apart to dust and oil it (something else that’s EXTREMELY important to do that I didn’t know as a kid)

So back to the dust part… Since it’s so important to keep dust out of your machine, one of the first projects I decided to do was make a sewing machine cover to keep the dust away!

Life At Victoria Secret

Before I found out I was pregnant, placed on bed rest, and gave birth to our beautiful daughter Aria, I worked at a Victoria Secret in my local town. First let me say, I truly miss my job! I never thought I’d say that about a job in my life, but working there was one of the best experiences!

Of course there were a few bad days… Like the time I dropped a wall bar on my foot. Ouch! Or the time I ate something a coworker made, got food poisoning, and threw up all over myself during Black Friday of all days. Yeah, that went over well… The occasional rude customer, but hey, the customer is “Always” right! Even with memories like this, it’s not enough to outweigh the amazing ones.

A common misconception is that you have to get undressed to get a bra fitting… NO! You do not have to strip in front of me for me to measure you… You can keep your shirt on and your bra on… I don’t know how many times I’d open a fitting room door to take a measurement and the person was either half way or completely undressed. I’m a professional, so it really doesn’t phase me one bit, but when it happened to the new girls I could see the sheer look of panic on their faces.
