Hey friends! It's been awhile since I've posted! Life has gotten busy, with homeschooling, the craziness of having five kids (and a climbing toddler - oy!), and all the things of life.

Striped Birthday Tank

Boy number three turned four yesterday. To celebrate, I made him a striped tank. The tank is self-drafted and upcycled from an XL men's tank top. The stripes on this tank are so rad.

KCWC: Color Block Striped Tee

I decided I needed a little quicker project, after the pants I worked on the past couple of days. One that wasn't quite as detail oriented. So obviously a striped T-shirt is the way to go! This shirt is made with a combination of striped, knit fabric I scored from a rummage sale and an … Continue reading KCWC: Color Block Striped Tee

For years now I've been saying I need new pillows in our living room. I've been using the ones that came with our couch - you know, the ones that have the exact same fabric as the couch. Brown.
