Mad Mimi!

Mimi shirt

Well, she’s not mad, but maybe a tad crazy? J is really starting to get into the whole modeling thing. Not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing…..

This shirt pattern is part of the Perfect Pattern Parcel #5 bundle sale going on right now (Disclaimer: I received this pattern for free, but I totally picked this one because I knew I would love it!)! It also includes a dress option, as well as short sleeves and a variety of other options. You can read more about the bundle at the bottom of this post! more

Oopsy Daisy Overalls Jumper

Oopsy Daisy Overalls

Remember those oh-so-cute elephant overalls?? Well, now there’s a jumper pattern (*affiliate link) too! This is the Oopsy Daisy Overalls Jumper from Peekaboo Pattern Shop and it IS CUTE!

I made this in some soft grayish-brown corduroy from Fabricland with recycled hardware (again!) from some old overalls that never were worn…they’ve never fit my kids right! But with these patterns, I can get the torso length just right, and the legs (for the overalls) just short enough 😉 more

Ooh, a Blog Hop!

Family Photo

I was asked by Terri over at Sew Straight & Gather to be a part of this blog hop. I don’t know what it is about the term blog hop that immediately makes me think of Flubber….anyways, moving on…

So the goal of this blog hop is to help my readers learn more about me, the person behind this blog! You may even find a few new blogs to follow as a result (you can read Terri’s post here, and from there go back a few weeks!). There are four questions that I’m going to attempt to answer: more

Shandiin Top: Fall Edition

Shandiin Top

Aaargh! Shiver me timbers! Literally, brr! Shiver! We had a cold snap here bringing a little snow (BOOOO!) so I decided to change up this summer-look top and show you some layers!

Have you been following along with Frances Suzanne’s Flip this Pattern this month? It’s a twist on the usual contest, and instead they are showcasing patterns from indie designers – those with 5 patterns or less. It’s a great way to find some new favorites! And there is a linky party that could provide you with hours of inspiration here. more

CraftingCon: Stylin’ Snow White


Way back a loooong time ago I mentioned something about CraftingCon. Well, it’s here! And I’m a competitor for the Princess month! Don’t worry, it’s nothing that you need to vote on, but I hope you’ll check out the other competitors over at Friends Stitched Together. If you’re looking for some inspiration, head on over to Mae & K for some fun tutorials too! more

Schoolboy Vest for Parcel #4

schoolboy vest

I’m so excited to share with you this amazing pattern! I just can’t get over the cuteness!! I chose to sew up the SchoolBoy Vest from Pattern Parcel #4 and Sew Much Ado in a beige stretch cotton. I wanted something that could be dressed up or down, and this fit the bill. The inside is lined in regular cotton (I used some fat quarters for this – perfect!). I almost didn’t do the little belt on the back, and I’m SO GLAD I did! It just gives it such a professional finish! more
