Guys! I successfully sewed up another German pattern! (I still did spend an awful amount of time translating and re-reading through the instructions and wondering, can I really sew this up without making a muslin and get it done quickly??!). (My first German pattern is over here). This one is the FeeFeeFashion Hoody Filou (kids)… Continue reading FeeFeeFashion Hoody Filou with Beanpop Fabrics
I am so excited about this dress! I'm a "strike-off seamstress" for Beanpop Fabrics and when they requested this gorgeous striped floral fabric be sewn up, I just KNEW it would be a perfect combo with the Sew Straight & Gather Avenue Dress that I tested earlier in the year. (In fact, there are so… Continue reading Sew Straight & Gather Avenue Dress with Beanpop!

Skater would be a perfect match for it!… Continue reading Boo! Designs Skater Dress – Gathered Waist Hack
My second project with the Peppa Pig panels! I created this dress with Ottobre Magazine 3/2015 #15 “Lionella”. I think this has been one of my most time consuming knit projects! There just seemed to be a lot of pieces and parts, but I got there in the end. Overall I liked the look. I… Continue reading Peppa Pig Dress/Tunic and Leggings
My kids are crazy about Peppa Pig so when I saw a preorder for a Peppa custom knit come up, I jumped on it. My first foray into custom knits… very dangerous eye candy, LOL. I picked up a yard of fabric and 3 panels – 2 with Peppa and 1 with George. My plan… Continue reading Peppa Pig Sleeveless Hoodie (Ottobre 3/2015)
