I'm ready to share more patterns from Jalie's new 13 piece collection! I'm sharing 3 new Jalie patterns - the Elle Reversible Top, Renee Ponte Pants, and the Stella Leggings. As always, these patterns are all available with size 2T - 2XL in one pattern and comes as a PDF or Paper pattern. The PDF's also include projector files for those doing that now!
Just in time for Christmas, I made pajamas for my kids - because that is what us sewists are supposed to do at Christmas time, yes? ;-). And then, because my kids insisted on wearing them immediately and I failed to photograph them, they of course: wet the bed the first night, spilled breakfast on… Continue reading And then it was Pajama Day, Every Day.
It's January, which means it's definitely time I made more use of my gym membership! But in the meantime, instead of making more workout outfits for me, I made them for my daughter instead.
As I mentioned in my last post, my 3 year old is Owl obsessed. 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
I've been on a legging kick lately! Naturally, I fully intended to make leggings for me... but when it comes to doing strike-off sews... well my kids always win out! I think I need some leggings in this Stitch print though - but just as an accent - I'm not quite brave enough to go to the gym with Stitch all over me, LOL. Read more...
Because I need to have a million things on my plate at any one time, a couple of weeks ago I decided to sign up to test the new Simple Life Pattern Company Aria Dress for dolls! I already own the girls version of this dress and just KNEW my eldest would LOVE to match her doll with this one! Keep reading to see what I came up with!
Except for the fact that it's freezing cold, can I just say I LOVE photos in the snow? It makes such a great backdrop!! Over the weekend we had a little over 10 inches dumped on us here in the Washington DC Metro area. Thankfully we were able to squeeze my son's 5th birthday party… Continue reading Oliver +S Playtime Dress & Leggings
So I've been on a sewing hiatus for a few weeks. I just felt like I was getting burnt out, unable to focus my ideas, and needed to catch up on a whole bunch of other things! I thought it would just be a one week hiatus, but next thing I knew, it had become… Continue reading My Monster Tour – Daniel Tiger Dress
Happy Father's Day! I suppose it would be most appropriate to show the AMAZING things I made for my husband for Father's Day, right? Well, wife of the year here folks. With the onset of stomach bugs this week, the plan to make *something* for my husband just didn't materialize. My kids did, however, all… Continue reading Jalie Clara Leggings & Adele Flutter Sleeve Tunic
A couple of months ago, my husband and I decided to re-join our local gym. I quit going after I had my first kid about 6 years ago, and since this gym has swimming lessons, it worked out better for us to move our kids lessons to the gym and get family membership. The thing… Continue reading Working out the New Year
