To top it off: Jalie Pleated Vest

To go along with my pants and top that I shared the other day, I wanted to complete the look with a cardigan. I found this striped sweater knit from Simply By Ti and decided to try and make it work! It's definitely bolder than what I usually would choose for outerwear (I'm a solids… Continue reading To top it off: Jalie Pleated Vest

Jalie Zip-Front Hoodie + Seahorses

I've been loving making hoodies for my kids - I love the options for details, showing off cool fabric, and my kids just love to have hoods and pockets on their clothes. What I don't like however, is that THEY NEVER WEAR THEM. Waaaaaah!!!!! I finally worked out that my children will only wear hoodies… Continue reading Jalie Zip-Front Hoodie + Seahorses

Lion… er… Liger Hoodie!

Can I just start by saying, I love, love, LOVE Whimsy Baby Customs Rapports?! What is a Rapport you say? Well, turn to my trusty search engine: A Whimsy Baby Customs Rapport goes along the same vein - a panel and two coordinates - all on one meter of fabric!

FeeFee Filou Sew-along – Day 1

Finally, oh finally, I have put together a sewalong for the long requested Filou Hoodie! (See my other Filou's here and here). I have made 2 of these hoodies so far, and only in the children's sizes.

FeeFee Filou Heart Hoodie

Meine Herzenswelt – Vanja Sweater Dress

German pattern world strikes again! I just love how many unique and interesting designs are available among European patterns! When I received this unicorn panel from MK*Designs, I realized that it was going to be too small for another Filou sweater or BeeStyle and since I wanted a dress, I didn't think it would work with the… Continue reading Meine Herzenswelt – Vanja Sweater Dress

FeeFeeFashion Hoody Filou with Beanpop Fabrics

Guys! I successfully sewed up another German pattern! (I still did spend an awful amount of time translating and re-reading through the instructions and wondering, can I really sew this up without making a muslin and get it done quickly??!). (My first German pattern is over here). This one is the FeeFeeFashion Hoody Filou (kids)… Continue reading FeeFeeFashion Hoody Filou with Beanpop Fabrics
