Gathering Foot vs Ruffler Foot!

Hey Everyone,

I have been busy working on updating some of my older not so good quality videos on my YouTube channel. This being one of them. I initially didn’t think it was a difference between the two but after purchasing both of them I realized I was wrong. There are things the ruffler foot can do that the gathering foot cannot. Both are great extras to have on hand with your sewing machine. One thing they do have in common is they making sewing ruffles and pleats a lot easier. Watch the video below to see what each one can do. If you would like to purchase them for yourself check out the Amazon links below

Safe Sex Talk With Teens

It’s not always easy to talk to our teens about sex. Let’s face it who wants their children having sex as teens, to begin with! I know I don’t. But then again I am not oblivious to things either. Rather than trying to ignore the fact that my sons may be engaging in underage sex. I accept it and make sure to arm them with all the knowledge they need. Mainly, safe sex with regards to condoms, their girlfriends on birth control as well as sexually transmitted diseases as well as consent. I talk about a few of these things in my video below. If you want to share any comments for concerns please do so in the comment section. Also, I am willing to answer any questions you may have.

My Birthday!

Today I sit back and reflect on all the things I have gone through, been through and still going through in life. It’s been one wild journey I can tell you that. But I am so grateful for this life. Everything tragedy, every once of sadness, happiness, loss and gain is leading me to where I am supposed to be.

Life is a precious thing. So much can be lost and so much can be gained in a matter of moments. All I can say is that I cherish each everything and embrace like a champ. So as I celebrate another year of life that almost wasn’t twice over. I give all thanks to God for waking me up and leading me to my purpose.

How To Make Leather HairBows With Silhouette Cameo

For the longest time, I have been cutting all my leather hair bows by hand. I knew it was a way or should be a way to cut them with my Silhouette Cameo. And what do you know, there is. Now, I’m going to share with you how I did so.

Resize to fit your needs.

The first step is by finding a template or pattern. I just did a Google search to find a template and used the trace feature in my Silhouette to resize my bow template. If you don’t know how to use the trace feature I have a post showing you how to do so. How to use trace feature in Silhouette Cameo!

Above you will see the proper setting to cut leather fabric with Silhouette. For the material setting I chose the Leatherette setting, the blade setting is 10, speed is set to 3, force is 33 and passes I chose 2. I also used the fabric blade also set that to 10. Once that is all set then go ahead and cut. Once you have it cut go ahead and put it together like you normally would.
