New Upholstered Glider

How to reupholster a glider
Hello my dear friends, today in the blog is a small tutorial about how to reupholster a glider or a nursery rocking chair.  I decided to make this tutorial because I have seen so many tutorials in Pinterest about how to do it and honestly, I would love to contribute with more professional tips to people looking forward to make this project.  I am not an arrogant person but honestly there are things that I would not post in the internet if they look like a toddler did it.
Be Aware, it is going to be a long tutorial for the many pictures that I took to have full details of the project.

sewing notions:
Fabric: upholstery fabric bought at Jo Ann's for $5 dollars the yard on sale  ( you need 3 yards)threads: all sewing thread and I recommend a heavy duty one, the same color and use it on top.microtex needles : good for leather, coated materials and laminates. 8heavy duty snaps: size 5/8"
Here is a before picture of the Glider 
It has gone throw the 3 year…

Shirt for Him

Ultimate guy gift  Hello my dear friends, today in the blog is this amazing man shirt for a change.  If you were out of ideas for last moment Christmas, birthday or valentines gifts, I really would recommend this cool and easy pattern man shirt.


the pattern is: McCall's M6044sizes: from 34 to 56fabric store: www.fabric.comfabric recommendations: cotton, cotton blend, washed denim. pattern variations: you will find this cool pattern with back yoke, pockets with  flaps or without them, short and long sleeves. So it definitely works good for all year round or all kind of weather.
Pattern Review I love it and I want to make some more of them for my husband as soon as I have more time to sit down in my sewing machine, I love giving him gifts that I can make with my hands and the best of it, is that he goes around so happy and proud telling everyone that I made the shirt for him.   😇😇 His shirt is made in a light weight denim and actually it keeps him very warm now in the winter season …
