The fabric is a custom print available in "little" and "big". I went with the little version, but I wish… Continue reading Roller Skate Calendula Dress

You Had Me At Sushi!

When my kids saw that the new Raspberry Creek Fabrics Fall Collection had SUSHI fabric, it was pretty much an expectation that I'd be making them something with it! My eldest requested a top and my son surprised me by saying he wanted a sushi shirt too. And, unsurprisingly for him - a tshirt with… Continue reading You Had Me At Sushi!

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!

She is constantly hooting, flapping, requesting to watch videos on owl pellets, demands owl books when we visit the library each week, and has been gradually amassing a collection of cute, stuffed owls. She was over the moon when I showed… Continue reading Misusu Dia Tunic & Boo! Leggings
