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 have no idea yet what I’m going to make to with this quilted weave I did using @alisonglass’s Cross Stitch fabrics. It’s really the most perfect rainbow. What would y’all (or what should I) make with this weave? Inquiring minds wanna know in the comments. #agfabrics #quilted ...

All my strips are ready to weave up together into gorgeous rainbow ombré unicorn goodness. The gradient on this @vchristenson ombré wovens is exquisite and I can’t wait to see what that brings to the weave. Anyone else excited to see this one? #ombrefabric #magicalunicorn ...

I taught a weaving class with the @dallasmqg this summer and as I was scrolling through my hashtags I was reminded by this beauty that @dj_a_dubs did in the class and that I wanted to copy it because it’s 🔥, ya? If you agree, through some 🌈s in the comments and tell @dj_a_dubs she’s amazing because she is. 🌈
Following caption and photo by @dj_a_dubs: “I got to attend a workshop today on fabric weaving with @misterdomestic, and y’all, it was awesome! Thank you, Mister Domestic, and thank you @dallasmqg for making it available! I’m drooling over this @alisonglass #kaleidoscopefabric and @modafabrics glitter #grungefabric. #fabricweaving #misterdomestic #loveislove”

I acknowledge that this post is random AF because I felt the same way when a talent recruiter from TikTok reached out asking if I would stitch a video with the @jonasbrothers. Normally, I would pass since it’s not really about crafting, but the idea of doing it cracked me up to no end, so I said yes. In the video, we were to share a sign that we would hold up if we won tickets to their concert. So I ran to my @cricut and this is where we landed. Also omg I wanna have a unicorn squad for reals, right? So welcome to my randomly awesome experience. #cricutmade #misterdomestic #jonasbrothers ...

Even with myself, it took me far too long to learn the whole “believe them as they see it” concept and how truly necessary that component is to seeing someone and learning how you can help based on that. This resonated with me today, so I’m thinking it might also with a few of you.

I happened upon this exquisite quilt top made by @mingamonga using my Hooked Fabric Collection and I’ve absolutely fallen in love. What do y’all think? Say all the good things in the comments so @mingamonga feels the ❤️. Love ya mean it. ❤️

This is the “inside out” version, which swaps the focus fabrics into the background. I considered eliminating the setting triangles and squaring things off, but I couldn’t make myself cut these Hooked fabrics by #misterdomestic ! I had a little fun by eliminating the corner triangles, too.

This is me. Like almost all day long. Even when I’m working or streaming or generally pontificating, I can’t shake how incredibly lonely I feel. I mean I make the most of each day and still find me some joy, but feeling lonely pretty much sucks, so I wanted to share this in case any of y’all might feel like this too. And I’m running out of things to do, so if you have other ideas when you feel lonely that works for you, share it in the comments. Love you mean it.

I saw this post from @trevorproject and felt compelled to share it here. The Trevor Project is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer & questioning (LGBTQ) young people under 25. IMHO, they are nothing short of living angels changing and saving lives. And this art from @henryjgarrett is such a necessary reminder. Love you mean it.
