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.

So I've been an open book about my mental health, especially the past year. I live with clinical depression and anxiety and, thankfully, I am able to manage both using the various tools and strategies I've collected over the years. And hands down, my most impactful tool has been to integrate crafting and creating into my life. And to me, it doesn't matter what I'm making because the process of creating becomes this meditative, joy-filled experience. And when @joann_stores reached out asking if I'd help spread the word about their new mental-health initiative, I was honored to do so. JOANN has partnered with Nationwide Children’s Hospital to support the On Our Sleeves® movement. On Our Sleeves is the movement to transform children’s mental health and aims to provide every community in America with free resources to break the stigma surrounding child mental health. For May, June & July, JOANN will be collecting donations at their registers for this movement and any donation helps. Thank you JOANN to helping break the stigma and supporting such an amazing organization. #onoursleeves #ad ...

I was scrolling through the memory lane of my feed and saw this photo of a weave I did five years ago and was like oooooh I remember sexy light. And this weave was only 6”X 6” so those strips were tiny. Methinks I need to make something new with these colors. So #flashbackfriday and stuff. Anyone else excited it’s Friday? #tgif #fabricweaving #sunsetgram ...

Okay, y’all know I love me some t-shirts. And now that I have my Siser Heat n Press, I definitely feel like my shirt game has next-leveled. So when @michaelsstores reached out for this project, I wanted to come up with something that captured this moment. This spring especially I’ve been feeling like I’m ready to get some stuff done. Like a “let’s try this again” moment. And that’s kinda what spring is. So I was all like, you know what, I’m gonna live everyday like it’s spring. And tada, my shirt that I made saying what I wanted to remind myself about is now on my body. So make sure to check out the awesome tech at Michael’s because it’s definitely fetch. What other sayings should I put on a shirt? #makeitwithmichaels #ad ...
