Jennuine Design Limone Lounge Set {Pattern Release}

I had the opportunity a month or two ago to test these fabulous shorts from Jennuine Design!

Kids Cargo Pants & Top

A friend recently introduced me to Threadsmitten, a small online business based local to me in Fairfax, Virginia specializing in European fabrics, notions, and non-Euro indie paper sewing patterns. The owner, Rachel, sent me some of her fabrics to try out and share - and I am just so in love with them!

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!

Pooh Bear Top & Shorts

MK*Designs recently sent me this adorable panel with Stitch dressed up as various Winnie the Pooh characters on a bee background. The panel was too big for my 3 year old so I decided to use it for my 7 year old instead. The A.A. Milne quote, "The things that make me different are the things that make me," describes my daughter to a T, so this really was perfect for her! (Read More)
