River Float Trip

I’m reminiscing over warmer weather today. This photo was from a float trip last month. We’re down to 75′ and I know I’m being a baby. It’s almost warm enough to swim, but I’m still mourning the fact that the cold will soon be upon us. I’ll quit grinching once I break out the sweaters and boots. Cozy knits and boots put me in the mood for chilly days and holidays!

Let’s see what everyone has been up to.

Pinktober Cheer Bow

It’s hair bow season! I’m working on our Pinktober bows for Bella’s cheer squad. I made do with the supplies I had on hand. If I had the budget, I’d cover themĀ in Swarvoski crystals and blind the other team with our dazzling bling. I did manage to get lots of sparkle though:) The best part is: I’ll have a tutorial for you later this week!

On a side note; I feel like I’m cheating on sewing with hair bows. I can’t resist the glue gun lately.

Let’s see what everyone has been up to.

OTT hair bow | MayenDesigns on Etsy

There are a few new bows in the shop! This month I’ve been making custom football and cheer bows for our local school and Little League fans. They’re getting claimed faster than I can take pictures, but I’ll try to get some up on Instagram soon.

One of my favorite hair bow conneisuers said, “omg these hair bows are like Pokemon- gotta catch em’ all!” It cracked me up. Making bows is fun, and I earn a little money for extra things for my daughter. I love showing them off here!

I have another pair of shorts to show you soon. It’s still shorts weather here, but it’s time to start thinking about sewing for fall. I’m planning some bras for me and t-shirts for my kid.

Let’s see what everyone has been up to.

Welcome to Sew Fashionable: A weekly showcase of my favorite sewing and fashion posts across the blogosphere.

Sew Fashionable is late this week- I’ve been pretty MIA on the blog this whole month too! It’s football season and the last week of summer vacation. I have tons of hair bow orders. There’s so much ribbon strewn about that I can’t find my sewing machine!

Back To School Meme

My daughter can’t wait for school. This has been an action packed, but very long summer. Most schools have been back in school for weeks. Stick a fork in us, we’re done:)
