I have made many Sew Over it patterns in the past, but hadn’t visited a pattern of theirs in over two years. When the Suraya Jacket was released, I liked the look and style and kept the idea of making it at the back of my mind. In […]
My name is Karina. I'm a passionate seamstress, wife, mother and midwife. I love all things sewing and sharing all the little tips and tricks I have picked up through my decades of sewing. I have a Youtube channel all about sewing called Lifting Pins and Needles.

I have to confess that I have never been a pajama person. I mean to say that I don’t sew them or buy them and my entire family is the same. I sleep in any knit garment that is comfortable. Enter the Namaste nightwear collection! The design is […]
The Glissando is a new pattern from Love Notions patterns and it includes pants, shorts and a skirt. Designed for bottom weight zero stretch wovens. They all have similar features and the options make this a pattern that will go a long way. SO many possibilities. The straight […]
