Mamaw Lola’s Sewing Room

jessica | July 28, 2015

My love for sewing began long before i started actually doing it. I use to love going in to my Mamaw Lola’s sewing room. Even though no one else thought much about it, i thought it was magical!!! To take scraps of fabric, and create a beautiful piece of clothing or quilt…. What’s not magical about that! She had jars of buttons, spools of thread, bolts of fabric, and lots of patterns. I think she could sew just about anything.

When Jep and i got married Oct. 7 2001, i started going to work with him and answered phones and took orders for duck commander. Not too long after we got married i decided i wanted to learn how to sew, so i went to a local

Fabric store ‘quilt-­‐n-­‐stitch” and signed up for their next beginners sewing class.

And that’s where it all started. I will share with you my love for quilting and creating beautiful clothes as well as craft projects. I will post all the things I’ve made in the past as well as new projects!! Hope you can join in on the fun!

    Jessica, was excited to see on that you have started Robertson roots. It’s pretty easy to tell that you are as beautiful on the inside as you are on the outside. I’m a mother of 3 sweet kids and trying to raise them to love God and family and to appreciate the little things in life and their heritage just like you. The platform that God has given you to share with so many is amazing, and you are shining girl for Him! Thanks for keeping your blog real, I can’t wait to read more! Please do share some of your style tips!

    I enjoy your blog! I just wanted to share something that turned out so very well. A few years ago, I was working with GAs (Girls in Action) in my church. As we talked during a class, several girls expressed how much they would love learning to sew. So, we put together a sewing class. Then we decided to help them learn how to quilt. Our quilt project was 4 baby quilts–we used the pre-made fabrics and showed them how to put the top, batting and bottom together and put it on a frame. Then we set 4 girls at each frame and began. We prayed first together for the baby and mama who would receive the quilt. Our ultimate plan was to donate the finished quilt to a local crises pregnancy center. Then, we learned how to quilt through all of the layers and make tiny stitches outlining the picture. We prayed, talked, laughed a lot and in a few weeks–we had 4 finished quilts. Then the girls wrote notes that were pinned to the quilt that included their favorite Bible verse and telling the Mom that we prayed for them and their baby. We made a trip to the center and left the quilts. We had a wonderful time together, and those girls will never forget how they learned to quilt! (neither will I)

    Love the quilts and love the blog. I spend way too many hours in the office so I try to use my down time to create beautiful things that I can gift. Joy comes from giving and these quilts are beautiful… I just purchased the fabric for my first real quilt. (the flannel rag quilt doesn’t really count =)
    Thank you for sharing.

    About Me

    About Me
    Hello! My name is Jessica Robertson and I’m married to the youngest Robertson, Jules Jeptha, and yes I love the BEARD!

    I am so glad you could join me on this endeavor of life without the cameras. I hope this lifestyle blog will encourage you, inspire you, and down right draw us closer together.

    Life is short, so let’s encourage and lift each other up. I’m passionate about life and believe The Cure is LOVE! Doesn’t matter where you come from or how old you are, we are all in this together and we can learn from one another.

    I know that without my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, I’d be lost. And I live with the peace that Christ died for my sins and rose from the grave and now isn in Heaven preparing a place for me, that’s what my hope is in, that one day I will live for ETERNITY in HEAVEN with my GOD.

    I’m a blessed mama of four. I’m a lover of all things vintage. I’m an oldie at heart. I may have been born in the wrong century. I cry when anyone else cries, which my kids make fun of. I want to be a farmer when I grow up. And last but not least, I LOVE my mate!

    Hope you can join me on this journey of life, cooking, gardening/living off the land, fashion/beauty, sewing/creating, Holiday’s, and more.

    Lets learn together!
