Brother Fashion Tip of the Week

I’m pleased to share my Fashion Tip of the Week from the Brother Loves Fashion Campaign! As one could expect, it’s a thrifty tip that focuses on re-purposing!

“If you’ve ever ruined a favorite garment with a permanent stain, try this handy trick! Create a paper pattern by disassembling the garment with a seam ripper and tracing the different pieces onto paper. That way you can recreate new replicas of that favorite garment over and over again! And the best part is – you’ll know the sizing is just right!”

Animal Muppets iPad Case with the Brother Innov-Is 990D

Happy Friday Friends! Today I’m excited to share a fun little project that I created on the Innov-Is 990D Combination Sewing & Embroidery Machine! It’s an earthy, retro Muppets theme iPad Case featuring a meditating Animal, one of my absolute favorite Muppets characters! L1100989I created it by embroidering Animal onto the flap and then assembling layers of fleece and low loft batting from Fairfield World. This project is super easy to do and can be made with any of the awesome Muppets embroidery designs that you can download on iBroidery.com! L1100987You could also customize your iPad case with any of the 35 built-in Disney embroidery designs that come pre-loaded on the machine! I am having so much fun with the Innov-Is 990D! I’ve been searching for so long for a case for my iPad Mini and couldn’t find one that suited my unique sense of style, so I finally decided to just make my own! And boy am I glad I did!L1100992 I just love how Brother Home Sewing & Embroidery machines empower me to create my own unique accessories for pennies on the dollar! And with so many awesome licensed characters to choose from, the possibilities for embellishment are endless!
