Recess Raglan Hoodie

I know I mentioned before how much I love the Recess Raglan [a pattern from See Kate Sew - affiliate link]. I know this pattern is going to be in heavy rotation here. When I decided to make one for my two-year-old, I changed it up just a little bit from the original pattern.Because everything is a little … Continue reading Recess Raglan Hoodie


Fourth of July Embroidered Fireworks T-Shirt

At the last minute [oh you know, 9:30 last night...] I decided to fancy-up a T-shirt for my nearly two-year-old. We don't have big plans for the Fourth of July, but who doesn't love a patriotic outfit? With a few quick stitches, I added some fireworks to a plain blue T-shirt. Well, fireworks... or spiders? … Continue reading Fourth of July Embroidered Fireworks T-Shirt

The Grandpa Inspired Look – sewing along with PR&P’s boy week

Well I'm sewing along with another week of Project Run and Play! Really, how could I not sew along with boy week? I decided to sew for my three-year-old, because honestly, I don't do that often. Poor middle child. Plus, he's my most reluctant model. As I lay awake the other night [seriously, pregnancy insomnia? I'd … Continue reading The Grandpa Inspired Look – sewing along with PR&P’s boy week

Handmade from Head to Toe [a new outfit]

Even though we're in the midst of the Boys Will Be Boys... gift series [which I'm totally loving, by the way - I hope you are too!], I decided to break from the tutorial posts. If you are a sewing mama, you might be with me when I say that sometimes, you just have to … Continue reading Handmade from Head to Toe [a new outfit]

Comfy Overalls – the Naptime Pants!

Little boys wearing overalls. Seriously, can it get any cuter? Well, he is my kid, so I'm probably biased. But the one problem I have with overalls is that most of them are denim with all these buckles and whatnot - which aren't always super comfortable for baby taking a nap. [and a no-napping baby … Continue reading Comfy Overalls – the Naptime Pants!

Owls and Stars

Are we sick of owls yet? Is that trend over? Well, either way, I still like them. And since I have a tendency to scoop up plain T-shirts when they're on clearance, I had a white tee that was in need of a little ... something. So, a little felt owl appliqué, a few freezer … Continue reading Owls and Stars

KCWC: Geometric Tees

After sewing pants and a shirt for my oldest, my two-year-old said to me, "Where's my shirt, Mommy?" And when a child asks for handmade clothing, who am I to deny him? Using a men's thrifted T-shirt [made out of the SOFTEST material ever in life], I managed to make two shirts - one for … Continue reading KCWC: Geometric Tees

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

The Slim Fit Tank

The weather around here is not quite summer... or even spring, really. But eventually summer will come, and a certain four and a half year old doesn't have any tanks. Well, thank you Kids Clothes Week Challenge, we now have the first tank of the season. This is a self-drafted pattern [that I'm hoping to make … Continue reading The Slim Fit Tank
