Kids Cargo Pants & Top

A friend recently introduced me to Threadsmitten, a small online business based local to me in Fairfax, Virginia specializing in European fabrics, notions, and non-Euro indie paper sewing patterns. The owner, Rachel, sent me some of her fabrics to try out and share - and I am just so in love with them!

Harry Potter Inspired Vanja Sweater (and how to hide your lining seams!)

I’m so excited that my kids are starting to read the Harry Potter books! While I have the series in a combo of paperback and hardcover - and some British, some Australian, and some US editions - we’ve been borrowing the e-audiobooks from the library and listening to them instead. And of course, one of the best outcomes from getting my kids into HP, is that my daughter picked out this HP inspired fabric from the current pre-order round at MK*Designs!
