Thanks for visiting our blog!
We are a couple of crafty sisters living in Charlottesville, Virginia….documenting our creative endeavors. Besides a few quick lessons from our Mom, we have learned to sew via the many fabulous sewing blogs out there.
We LOVE to UPcycle old clothing or linens into something new and cute for our children.
When we make something that we think others might like, we try to post a tutorial. Visit our Tutorials page!

Erin + Caroline
now for some random and incredibly amazing facts about us:
We were born in California, but spent the second half of our childhood in Connecticut.
We have another sister (Erika) in Chicago who we used to label “the un-crafty one”. However, she got a sewing machine this past Christmas and we are all on the edge of our seats waiting to see what she produces! (no pressure!)
Erin has NO recollection of sewing when we were younger, but Caroline insists there were many scrunchies made at the dining room table with our Mother’s machine.
We are both married to Chefs. They work down the street from each other in downtown Charlottesville.
And, yup… we eat well.
Chefs can work some crazy hours, so we are on our own a lot.
Because of that, when the kids go to bed and before the husbands get home, that’s when most of the sewing magic happens!
Currently, we both stay home with our kiddos.
Erin is a pastry chef (temporatily on-hold). Caroline is the smart one and will be a math teacher someday.
Between the two of us, we have lived in some pretty cool places like, Australia, NYC, West Hollywood, Telluride, CO., Santa Cruz, CA., and The Berkshires.
We have lived in Virginia for about 8 years now.
(No, really…what is “hungie gungie” you ask? A
delicious nutritious meal our mother made for us as kids. Often. It’s her version of hungarian goulash. Rhymes with bungie!)
