The nice thing about sewing custom designed fabric is that I'm obligated to maximize every last bit of it! With the remaining pieces of this "Endless Hearts" Cotton Lycra (from Beanpop Fabrics) that I used last week to make the Filou Hoodie, I decided to make the Lienchen Skirt by Pom & Pino.

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)
I have a baking obsessed 3 year old nephew, so when I spotted this Lillestoff fabric on sale at Halla Fabrics , I knew I had to get it!
