(not just a) Basic Blazer

By on March 7, 2016
Basic Blazer

Bringing home a post from over at Melly Sews to show off my little guy in his stylin’ Basic Blazer (*affiliate link)! He was SO excited to wear this to church. I think he felt like a big boy for sure! I love blazers as a layering piece. They’re also a great transitional piece for those weird spring or fall days when you just don’t want to wear a coat outside!

Hello, New Year!

By on January 7, 2016
Car Seat Cover

Heeeeelllllooo. Is anyone still there? I’ve been absent for a MONTH on my poor blog! But I’ve been busy making all sorts of cute baby things! This is one of the latest things that I needed and at the right time got a chance to test out the pattern!

This is the Car Seat Cover by Peekaboo Pattern Shop (*affiliate link). It’s part of the Lullaby Line (with a bunch of great new patterns being added to that line-up over the next couple of months!). I’ve used a different type of car seat cover in the past, but they are never the style of fabric that I like. When you make it yourself, you can go all crazy, or keep it simple! This pattern comes with the “shower cap” style with a peek-a-boo window or a canopy style with snaps.

Pacifier Clip Tutorial

By on December 7, 2015
Pacifier Clip Tutorial

I’ve had one thumb-sucker and one paci-lover and so for this baby I’m getting prepared just in case he likes pacifiers. What better way than to make some cute little clips??! I used the MAM brand clip with J and hated them. They were a sliding kind of clip and always loosened and fell off. These clips hold tight and should work with most pacifiers, as far as I can tell, as long as there is a hole on the pacifier somewhere. I ordered the clip piece from I Love Big Buttons on Etsy, but you could also use a mitten/suspender clip that can usually be found at Joann Fabrics.

My Knight in Scuba Knit

By on November 5, 2015
Knight Hoodie

This fall I dressed E in the Knight Hoodie that I made last year, and he was OBSESSED with it!!! So much that I decided he needed another one! I had this scuba knit that I found in the bargain bin at Fabricland for $2 a meter. It’s the perfect weight for a layering piece, and it has a bit of sheen and texture that made it feel right for armor πŸ™‚ You can find the pattern for the Knight Hoodie here
