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...

Hudson Hoodie by Made for Mermaids

Hudson Hoodie by Made for Mermaids

I have been a bad blogger.  And sewist.  And all-around creative person.  But I am so thankful for Made for Mermaids for putting out a new pattern, so it could force me to visit my blog once again.  Maybe this will be the thing that brings me back to the blogging...

Louis Bennett Jr. :: Halloween 2018

Oh my goodness.  I am so excited to share with you the costume that we chose, created, and executed for Louis this year. Louis is a kid who makes a decision and sticks with it.  No matter if you try and talk him out of it or not.  He chooses his Halloween costumes and...

Friends, Not Food :: Free Star Wars Inspired Porg Cut Files

I sure hope you're not tired of seeing Star Wars goodies pop up on here, because I can't help myself and I don't plan on stopping any time soon.  I've had this design worked up for a while now but just haven't had the time to print it on a tee.  Goodie for...

Rebel-Worthy Tees + FREE Download :: Star Wars Birthday Party

Rebel-Worthy Tees + FREE Download :: Star Wars Birthday Party

I always feel like the best way to round out a themed party is to dress up along with it.  We've been wearing themed birthday party outfits since we started celebrating birthdays with Louis, and it's been super fun to come up with what to put on our...

Family Beach Photos 2018 + So Classic Sundress

Family Beach Photos 2018 + So Classic Sundress

We went, we saw, we Jerseyed and now we are home.  I haven't gone through the entire set of images that Bennett took on the beach during one of the last nights during our vacation BUT, I did selfishly pull out the images that were snapped of the three of us.  Because...

Made for Mermaids :: Back to School Tour 2018

I had so much fun two years ago with M4M's Back to School Tour, that when they asked if I wanted to play along again I jumped at the chance.  More excuses to sew for and photograph my sweet boy?  Yes please! I'm so happy that Made for Mermaids is starting to give me a...

Squad Goals by RP Custom Fabrics

Outside it is roughly 3000% humidity, and I'm hardcore craving fall and all of the festivities that come with it.  Summer is just not my jam, friends.  But to top it off, RP Custom Fabrics sends me this adorable Halloween fabric and now all I can think about is how...

Jurassic by RP Custom Fabrics

Jurassic by RP Custom Fabrics

I love making things for Louis.  I especially love when those things are a little more funky than just a normal tee.  When RP Custom Fabrics started sharing their newest lineup of Jurassic prints I was all "GIVE ME ALL OF THEM NOW".  But I took a much cooler approach...

Sew Americana 2018!

Three years in a row, my friends, I have convinced some AMAZING bloggers to join me on a blog tour that celebrates all things red, white and blue.  And I'm excited to share with you day one, and my leg of the tour.  Just like years past, I convinced my guys to let me...

Fall Mix Tapes by Vintage Lace Prints

Fall Mix Tapes by Vintage Lace Prints

I love when a fabric shows up at my house that can be used for clothing for Louis.  Because it's the perfect excuse to sew something for him....and then take photos.  Sewing has seriously helped me create a snapshot of my growing little man, using my "big camera". ...
