Oliver +S Buttoned-Up Button-Down Shirt

I was in Australia back in March and had promised to make my nephew a PJ Masks shirt, since that's his current obsession. My sister has four boys with this one being her third, so he's pretty accustomed to just getting hand-me-downs in the wardrobe department. As a result, he was VERY excited and proud… Continue reading Oliver +S Buttoned-Up Button-Down Shirt

Each of the… Continue reading Talkin’ or Racin’? Car Fabric for Boys (and Girls!)

Magic Portal Biker Sweatshirt

Some fun sews for Mr. Model this week! When I found out MK*Designs was sending me a "portal" panel set of Donald Duck, I thought the (aff) MW Patterns Biker Sweatshirt would be a perfect complement for it. This is the same pattern I used a month or so ago when I made the US… Continue reading Magic Portal Biker Sweatshirt

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!). When Affordable Fabrics and More announced the new military fabric round, I figured I would skip it, since we aren't military (and the sample collection was originally offered to the military seamstresses in our group).… Continue reading U.S. Air Force Jacket
