Welcome to Mister Domestic, an inclusive community where we spread joy & positivity through sewing & crafting.

Sewist, Crafter, Teacher, Speaker, Designer, Advocate, Firm Anti-Racist, LGBTQIA+, & (best of all) Helena’s Dad.

About me!

Hey friends! My name is Mathew Boudreaux, but most folks know me as Mister Domestic. I learned to sew as a kid, but the antiquated binary gender expectations of my parents got in the way, so I never really felt compelled to up my game. Shortly after out daughter Helena was born in 2013, my spouse bought me a couple sewing classes at Modern Domestic and then I took off like I was at the races. And with my kid as my muse and inspiration, the quality and coolness of the stuff I made far exceeded anything that I thought I’d ever be able to create with my own hands.

And that was what I thought the entirety of my story as a maker would become: me making cool stuff with my kid. But the social media powers-that-be combined with my desire to test out the knowledge I’d just acquired from my MBA at Portland State had a different idea. I’m a fabric & pattern designer, sewing instructor, owner of my new online sewing school SEW U, inspirational speaker, consultant, and global influencer with my TikTok, YouTube & Instagram each set to surpass over 100,000 this year. But hands down, my favorite thing about this journey is the truly inclusive Mister Domestic community that has been created by all of us. And everyone is legit welcome. Unless your happiness if based on the oppression of someone else, of course.

I finished my Squid Game pillow and it turned out even better than the version I dreamt about! Seriously, is season 2 out yet because I’ve already binge watched it 3 times? If you dig, throw some 🦑🦑🦑 in the comments. That’s a squid btw. I think. I mean I know 🐙 is an octopus but you can use that one too and we can pretend. Happy FriYay! #squidgame #handmadepillow ...

Last night I had a dream about a pillow and today I made it happen. Anyone know what this is from and/or as obsessed with it as me? Tell me in the comments. #janome #misterdomestic ...

To all of my queer humans, Happy Spirit Day. You are perfect. You are light. You are everything you’re supposed to be. For those that are like, huh, what’s Spirit Day, this is your reminder to step up for us. Started in 2010 by Canadian teenager Brittany McMillan, it was initially created in response to a rash of widely publicized bullying-related suicides of gay school students in 2010, including that of Tyler Clementi. And to anyone who is committed to misunderstanding the latter portion of this video, do NOT be so arrogant to assume I am not a man of faith. I have done my work and then some. And I had some questions and concerns that I still can’t come to terms with. But as problematic as those issues are, including those within the group desiring to invalidate my existence or unalive me, there is still a lot of beauty that shapes my own morality. But the Doctrine is love, not hate. So if you lead with hate when you approach me or others like me, know that you’re doing it wrong, you clearly need to focus on yourself and your own work and your misinterpretations have nothing to do with me. Seriously, love ya mean it. And Happy Spirit Day. #spiritday #lgbtqpride ...

My crochet unicorn wanted to be a part of the Halloween festivities, so I crocheted some blood and now all is right in the craft room. I have a feeling Bunnicula 2.0 is going to be up to more shenanigans in the coming weeks. No amigurumi were harmed in the making of this image. 🤣 #crochetamigurumi #bunnicula ...

If y’all don’t know @mama.kerrr, she’s a magical unicorn that deserves all the good things. I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve watched her artistry and each time I get goosebumps for reals. If you’re feeling this, write RESPECT in the comments because she’s earned it. Love ya mean it. #makeupartist #translivesmatter ...

Hats, hats and more hats now listed in my shop. Please go buy them because this is only like a third of them. Half the time I’m live-streaming on TikTok playing with my knitting machine, which resulted in a 💩-ton of finished hats. And before someone virtue signals in my comments about donating stuff, trust me, I’m good on that front and, after 6 years of Mister Domestic, I’m finally getting comfortable with the idea that I also can make money from stuff I make. So tada! Hats, hats and more hats. Love ya mean it. #beanieseason #knittingmachine ...

Y’all! This weave! Omg, right? I used two yards of the gradient rainbow stripe that I have over on @spoonflower to weave this up. My hope is it’ll become a background for the display area on my shelves, but I gotta figure out some logistics before I make it so. What do y’all think? #weaversofinstagram #fabricweaving ...

Omg y’all! So my Mister Domestic doll that @perfectposiesbypaige made is en route to mi casa. But of course he had to make friends with this @tomdaley doll before he left because he’s extra like that. But seriously. How cute are these dolls? #amigurumicrochet #crochetersofinstagram

I think they look like best friends, how 'bout you? Drop a rainbow 🌈 in the comments if you love these dolls as much as I do!!
.
This Mister Domestic Doll is on his way to WA to his forever home with his namesake, and this Tom Daley Doll is headed to Mexico (please pray that the other one makes it to Tom in England soon, I hope he isn't lost in the mail!!)

Both the #tomdaleydoll and #misterdomesticdoll patterns are available through the link in my bio. 15% of pattern sales are neing donated to either the Brain Tumor Charity or an lgbtq+ organization. Plus all my patterns are 50% off so what are you waiting for?

All yarn is @paintboxyarns
Cotton aran.
