The Making of a Superhero :: Thor

The Making of a Superhero :: Thor

For July 4th I created superhero themed shirts for the entire family to wear.  Honestly, I didn't need to make them.  But I wanted to make them.  So...it totally happened.  And I totally love it. I decided to make myself a Thor shirt.  But I really didn't want to wear...

The Making of a Superhero :: Captain America

The Making of a Superhero :: Captain America

On July 3rd, I decided that somehow none of our red, white and blue clothes were good enough to be worn this year for the 4th, and that I needed to stretch my sewing wings a little bit and make us some new tees.  I'm sure you know by now that I'm a huge fan of...

Angelica Schuyler Comes to WV

You guys.  I have not jumped aboard the Hamilton train and have just a very basic knowledge of the play and story.  So when I got a message that the custom costume I was about to make was one of the characters, my heart stopped a little.  And then it turned into a...

FREE Rebel Pilot Paper Helmet :: Star Wars Birthday Party

I don't know if you've ever had an idea spark in your head to the point where you were obsessed with it until you made it happen....but that kind of thing happens to me ALL. THE. TIME.  This time around, it was in the form of something wearable for the kiddo...

Halloween 2017

Halloween 2017

Have I driven home the idea yet that I love Halloween?  Well, I do.  I so do. But I also love the final day, when we get to wear our costumes, trick or treat, eat all the candy, and then close that chapter of the beginning of the "holiday season".  The final hurrah on...

The Little Mermaid

The Little Mermaid

With the release of the new Wiggle Dress from Patterns for Pirates, I KNEW I needed to be ridiculous and make something over the top.  I'm so extra it hurts sometimes.  The pattern has an amazing floor length option, with a mermaid-style skirt finish...and I couldn't...

Phoenix :: Halloween 2017

Phoenix :: Halloween 2017

Since I already shared Louis' Halloween costume (HERE), I figured it would be worth it to break down my own costume...and hopefully Bennett's, whenever I get around to starting and finishing it.  #whoops Since we are all going as XMen, I had to pick a fellow redhead. ...

Quicksilver :: Halloween 2017

Quicksilver :: Halloween 2017

I could not decide if I wanted to share these photos before Halloween or not.  I was worried that maybe it'd spoil the fun of showing off Lou's costume before he gets to wear it out.  But then I realized that I am WAY TOO EXCITED about how it turned out.  So here's...

RP Royalty: Queen for a Day

My favorite thing about my "sewing world" experience is the people I've met and the connections I've made during this journey.  Sara from RP Custom Fabrics is one of those people who I'm seriously so happy to know.  Even if I only know her through the internet. ...
