welcome to common threads! so glad you popped in & took a look around. i'm ashley and i live in lovely oklahoma with my cute husband, A. i really LOVE my Lord and Savior, my wonderful hubs, sewing & crafting, anything handmade, anything vintage,country music, driving with my windows down, chocolate & dr. pepper (most crafty days include my beverage of choice), polka dots & cardigans, toms shoes, the razorbacks & football, making lists on post-it notes, daffodils, sunshine, & a number of other things that would make this page much too long.

common threads was created back in 2009. my mom taught me to sew way back when & i picked it up again as a creative outlet in college. since that summer, it has grown into a custom order business/excuse to create wonderful, fun things! it allows me to do something with my hands, be productive, & have fun all at the same time. the process becomes so much more joyful & fun when i get to create lovely things for others!

my current favorite color and project.

 i do love getting to read a good blog in between projects. my favorites include:


among the many things i sew, the most popular are the t-shirt blankets, tote bags, clutches, and aprons.
