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!

More MK*Designs Fun

I've been busy this week trying to use up all the yardage I received from MK*Designs! The yoga knit I was sent has certainly proven to be very versatile - with some of the leftovers from my daughter's workout outfit, I was able to whip up a pair of paints and accents on a t-shirt for my son, and a dress for my youngest daughter. It's fun to have them matchy matchy ;-). These are all staple patterns in my collection - ones that I've made before and get plenty of loving from my kiddos!

Talkin’ or Racin’? Car Fabric for Boys (and Girls!)

Sometimes it can be hard to find awesome boy friendly fabric, so I was excited to see this new monster car design from MK*Designs! Of course, when it arrived my daughters insisted it was for them and were pretty bitter when I declared it was for their brother. Monster cars for everyone!

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
