When you have an owl obsessed child it stands to reason that when you see owl fabric, you have to have it. My youngest was over the moon with the dress I made her, and my eldest was happy to coordinate! MK*Designs sent me a fat half of both Retro Owl Toss and the coordinating… Continue reading Retro Owls for MK*Designs
Christmas Pajama Time!
In this whirlwind of a weird year, it's hard to believe Christmas is only 4 months away. Really. In the sewing world, that means it's definitely time to plan NOW! MK*Designs is one company I love sewing samples for - their fabric collections are always fun and vibrant, and the cotton lycra fabric base is… Continue reading Christmas Pajama Time!
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!
Boo! Designs Dynamite Activewear
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...
Oliver + S Fairytale Dress meets Stitchery
First: I just love my baby girl! ❤ Now that I have my mushy mommy moment over, time for some details! This is the Oliver+S Fairytale Dress which was released about 5 years ago. I bought this pattern shortly after it released and used it once - to sew something for a friend. Finally, FINALLY,… Continue reading Oliver + S Fairytale Dress meets Stitchery

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! 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
Face Your Fears!
I'm not really one for Halloween themed fabric, but when I saw this Stitch panel along with the Oogie melted crayon, I showed my son and he was *all about it*. The kid adores melted crayon, and in addition to being cat obsessed, he's also really into dogs, so this was a win-win for him!… Continue reading Face Your Fears!
