Chapter 2: The Child

Along with the rest of the world, our family has fallen head over heels in love with "The Child"...also known to the internet as Baby Yoda.  The Mandalorian has been the best thing to come out of Disney+ so far and we are greatly looking forward to the next level of...

Sew Americana 2019 Blog Tour!

Sew Americana 2019 Blog Tour!

Ahhh!  My favorite self-hosted blog tour is back for it's fourth year and I couldn't be more excited than I am!  I love me some red, white and blue.  And even more so, I love that I can convince twenty-four other bloggers (who are way cooler than me, let's face it) to...

Dressing Our Guests :: 10 Year Anniversary Party

Dressing Our Guests :: 10 Year Anniversary Party

As if you'd even think for a second that I wouldn't sew for other people for our 10 Year Anniversary party!  I had so much fun putting together all of these coordinating outfits! I had always planned on making something for my sister to wear. And then wanted to make a...

Pin Tucks + Suspenders :: 10 Year Anniversary Attire

Pin Tucks + Suspenders :: 10 Year Anniversary Attire

What was almost as exciting as my dress to make for our anniversary party were the boys' outfits!  I actually find sewing button-downs super satisfying because there is a level of perfectionism that is required and when you absolutely nail that collar or placket, you...

Boys Can Wear Pink :: Season 5

Boys Can Wear Pink :: Season 5

Welcome back to the FIFTH season of my favorite blog tour! It's so crazy that I've been able to participate every year so far, and I think each year becomes my new favorite for outfits for Louis. Before we get too invested in this year's chat, let's take a look back...

I'm a little behind on sharing these in a new-release sense, but I couldn't let this blog sit here without telling you about the newest Patterns for Pirates pattern!  Let's talk about the Basic Tees! Judy made all my sewing dreams come true when she released a new...

Little Fox Winter Jacket

Little Fox Winter Jacket

For the 3249238th time, I used the Lumberjack Shirt pattern and turned it into a fun jacket for Louis.  Sadly, we didn't do a Star Wars themed jacket like the last two years, but I made something that Louis loves and that's all that counts.  Right? If it hasn't been...

P4P Holiday Freebies :: Sleepy Cut Files

P4P Holiday Freebies :: Sleepy Cut Files

Can you tell I've been a busy lady the last month or so?  Because this is the fourth day in a row that I've been able to produce freebies for the Patterns for Pirates crowd.  And it's been SO FUN! Today's freebie is themed toward Christmas jammies, being cozy, and...

P4P Holiday Freebies :: Pirate Stocking Cap

P4P Holiday Freebies :: Pirate Stocking Cap

I apparently will never let go of my hat making roots.  Because I just created another hat pattern and we are giving it to everyone for FREE! Louis needed (maybe not needed but I wanted to make it so let's call it a need) a fun hat to wear while he danced in an Open...

A Sweater for Lou | Boho Fabrics

A Sweater for Lou | Boho Fabrics

One of our biggest struggles with Louis being in a private school is the uniform side of it.  I mean, it's not that difficult to put your child in a polo shirt and khakis every day.  BUT, I haaaaaaaate buying polo shirts.  They're so boring.  And I refuse to make them...
