His and Hers microMOD Sew Along


Hey Hey friends!  Welcome to my stop for the microMod sew-along.  I knew right away that I wanted to make something wearable, because let's face it, this fabric is way too awesome not to show off.


But before we get into the nitty gritty details of my project, let's find out some from trivia from the  microMod duo ala Craft Junky style!

Question: If your spouse could be a super hero, what would their super power be and why?

Alexia says:   Rob's super power would be to be able to project movies with his mind! He loves movies and is especially good at remembering details and inspirations from films he has seen! 

Rob says:  Alexia's super power would be the power to grow additional limbs! She is always working on so many creative projects, and those extra limbs would be well used.

Seems like they know each other pretty well!

So for my project I decided to use Karyn's Enchanted Bow Skirt tutorial to make this fantastic skirt.


I decided not to make the bow since I knew that would probably be wearing it with my geeky t-shirts and converse.  


This print is called Vertigo and I think that it lends itself well to garment sewing as well as the hand of the Cloud9 fabric.  It is so soft and has such a nice drape, I want to make several more wearables out of it.  I paired the microMod with a simple gray hued shot cotton at the hem just to add a touch of contrast.  


SO now, on to the SEW ALONG!!!!!

  1. I would like to fly. That way I wouldn't have to sit in traffic everyday and save so more much time in my day to put towards crafting.

  2. I wish I could read minds. We always assume people are judging us and behave accordingly on assumption. Would be great to know when I'm assuming the wrong thing. Way good for confidence.

  3. I would want to teleport. My family live over 2 hours drive away and I have poor health. Travel causes me a lot of pain so to teleport would mean I could spend time with my family where I'm not doubled up with pain or doped up to the eyeballs with pain meds.

  7. Look at everyone that has the same idea as me already - teleportation! My grandbabies live an hour away (or two and one-half hours when I get caught in a snowstorm) and I'd love to see them more often.

  9. You are super cute in your new skirt, first of all. My superpower would be getting to any place in the world without traveling there... like, just snap my fingers, and I'm there. :)

  10. The ability to teleport here as well! My kids and grandkids are 11 hrs away...oh it would be so nice:)

  11. Love the skirt - the fabrics go so well with the shot cotton too! If I had a superpower, I would like it to be one where I could read my family's minds as to what they would like me to cook for dinner - they never seem to be able to come up with a unified answer so it is tricky to cook something that pleases everyone in the household.

  12. I would like to be able to slow down time so I could get more done.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Adorable skirt! You wear it well! For a superpower, I would love to be able to move super fast, so I could finish all of the sewing projects I've started!

  19. Such a cute skirt! I would love the super power of morphing into whatever body shape, size and height that I would want. I could tell you it would be about fighting crime, but it would mostly be about what I felt like wearing on any given day. :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. I would love an extra hand or two. But only when I needed them. Otherwise I am sure they would get in the way sometimes.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Great skirt! I would love to be able to be in two places at the same time or at least move so quickly it's like I'm in two places at once!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I would love the superpower of being able to learn a new language without any effort! It would make my current life so much easier! Thanks for the lovely giveaway and great sewing inspiration.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Can I be like Superman and have multiple superpowers? If I had to pick just one it would be the power to heal people with just a touch.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I do think teleporting would be pretty cool! So would the power to heal.

  37. This skirt is awesome! I'm always on the lookout for skirts that will look good paired with combat boots.

    And I know the giveaway deadline passed a couple days ago, but I wanted to answer anyway. I'd definitely want instant healing as my superpower (a la Claire from Heroes). No more neck pain!
