Dragon Outfit for my Son

As I've mentioned before, my husband's first name means "dragon" so whenever I have the opportunity to sew up some dragon fabric, I usually jump on it!  Affordable Fabrics & More sent me some dragon yardage, a coordinate and a panel this week, so it was a nice opportunity to finally make something for my son! I'm hoping this keeps him from feeling jealous of his sisters for at least a couple of weeks, haha! Read more...

U.S. Air Force Jacket

Living in the DC area means we're surrounded by military and government contractors (my husband falls into the latter category!).
