Mix & Match Swim Clothes for Ami

We’re getting ready for a little mini vacay up to Venice Beach FL this Friday so I’ve been sewing up beach gear like a crazy person for the past few weeks!  First up are Ami’s new & much needed swim outfits- she just had a 2″ growth spurt!  This was my first try sewing swimwear of any kind and I’m really happy with how they turned out.  So adorable …

Sew Stretchy- Ikat Lady Skater

This month’s challenge over at The Monthly Stitch is Sew Stretchy- which is perfect timing for me since I’m working on quite a few knit projects this month.  I just finished some swimsuits/rashguards for Ami, I’m working on some bras and underwear and I’m planning on making a swimsuit after that.  But first up is my first Lady Skater by Kitschy Coo!  I get what all the rave’s …

MMM Week 1 Wrap Up

Here’s what I wore this past week- Days 1-7 for Me Made May!  I’m so happy with all the different looks I’ve come up with!  This challenge is just what I needed to get me wearing my makes more.  I really didn’t think I’d be able to pull off a lot of full looks put so far so good!  My goal was 1 piece of me made clothing …

More Grainline Tanks!

I’ve made three more Grainline tiny tee tanks already- loving this pattern!  It’s perfect for refashioning since it doesn’t take much yardage.  You can see my first make here. All three tanks are refashions, two are remade out of my husband’s old polo shirts and the blue green gauze above is from one of my woven baby wraps for Ami.  Can’t believe my youngest just turned 3 last …

Me Made May is here!

          This is my first time participating in MMM– and I’m super excited!  Here’s my  pledge:  I, Rebecca, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’14. I will endeavour to wear one handmade item or refashioned make every day for the duration of May 2014.  I thought I’d kick off the month with a full me made look!  Today I’m wearing my naturally dyed flared wave …

My first Grainline Tiny Pocket Tank

I’ve been gearing up for Me Made May, assessing what’s in my closet, what needs repairs or alterations and making sure I have plenty of handmade makes to wear for May.  What was top on my list were some new tanks.  It’s getting really hot here already so I need a lot more light sleeveless options for the spring/summer.  May ’til November is really all summer weather here …
