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 …

Me Made May- Week 3

It’s been another successful week wearing my makes, though I’m coming to the end of my summer wardrobe and only have a few dressier clothing pieces that haven’t been worn yet.  I’ve been focused on sewing swimwear this last week.  A new bikini for me that I’m pattern testing as well as two new swimsuits for Amelie.  If you follow me on Facebook you’ll have seen some sneak …

KCW Wrap Up + My Makes Days 4-7

Whew!  KCW ended yesterday and I love how motivated it got me for sewing every day, though I don’t think I could keep that up on a regular basis with two little ones! Altogether I made 2 pairs of shorts for Nigel, shorts for Ami, a matching short/top set, a reversible wrap top and 3 knit skater dresses for Ami last week.  You can see all my makes on the …
