Kids Clothes Week! Back to School 2016

I’m back today sharing some of the back to school gear I made for Nigel for Kids Clothes Week.  Knowing I was going to be really busy this week  I did all my prep + sewing over the last two weeks.   Can you believe school starts here in less then 2 weeks?!?  I’ve been crazy busy getting ready.  Nigel now has a ton of raglan t-shirts and shorts  to choose from plus a new-and very awesome– backpack! Nigel asked me …

Kids Clothes Week! Summer 2016

School starts in two more weeks so KCW-that’s kids clothes week– is timed perfectly for me this summer! I don’t sew for the kiddos that regularly so it’s always nice to focus for just a week each season. The goal is to spend an hour a day sewing for our kids. Sometimes that’s more challenging then it seems! This season I started early. I wanted to make sure …

Summer Swimwear- Sewing for the Kids

We’ve been spending our summer vacay poolside at our new home.  The weather has been so beautiful the past few weeks.  I’m hoping this isn’t a fluke because I’m loving the change in weather over here on the east coast of Florida.  It’s still hot, but nowhere near as humid, with some beautiful breezes and late afternoon summer showers. The kids have been out of school for almost a …

Handmade Christmas-Sewing for the Kids

I’m psyched to finally share what I made for Christmas gifts this year!  First up-gifts for my kids.  As I’ve mentioned before we tend to do 3-4 main gifts for our kiddos each year (+stocking stuffers) to keep the clutter down. Something you WANT, something you NEED, something to WEAR, and something to READ! WANT– 14 in 1 Owi Solar Robot(for Nigel) and DIY Perfume Kit from Brambleberry (for …

Halloween 2015!

We had an awesome Halloween last Saturday! It’s really one of my favorite holidays-I love any excuse to dress up!  We have a wonderful tradition of pumpkin carving followed by a wonderful dinner and then trick or treating with my sister’s family. Always so much fun.  The kids filled their baskets to the brim this year!  Luckily for me the Sugar Plum fairy came and the candy has now disappeared to Fairy …

KCW + Halloween Sewing Plans

I wanted to add in an extra post today since its KCW!  I always love participating in Kids Clothes Week, especially since I really only sew for the kids a few times a year.  The theme for this week is Disguise-just in time for Halloween! My son was off school for the last two days so I’m holding off my KCW sewing until he heads back today.  We had a …

Mommy + Me Jalie Yoga Pants

Hope you’re all relaxing and enjoying this Labor Day Weekend with friends and family!  Just a quick post today so I can get back to hanging with the kids! I made these mommy and me Jalie yoga pants for Ami and myself a few weeks ago and they’re been getting a ton of wear.  Super comfy and nice and lightweight.  It is HOT here when we walk Nigel to school in …
