Wacky Wednesday!

Wacky Wednesday!

Lou’s school is having a “Student Appreciation Week” this week…and today happened to be Wacky Wednesday.  Given the opportunity, I would never pass up a chance to make something silly and in theme!  After a little bit of debating last night, we picked out six fabrics and whipped up this raglan before bedtime.

Pretty wacky, right?  (Is it weird that I can tell you where all of those fabrics are from??)

M4M + P4P Spring Mini Capsule | Progress Report

Eep!  I’m excited to share my Spring Capsule with you guys for a few reasons.  Number one, I actually finished it.  Which is a feat in itself.  Number two, I didn’t follow the rules of the #sewminicapsule but I did make a legit sudoku capsule, so I’m loving all of the graphics I was able to create.  And number three, I just love being able to share boys’ wardrobes.  I feel like little girls get the most attention with clothing, and it’s fun to infuse some boy clothes into the mix of things.  Here we go!

My sister was planning a visit with her two babies and I COULD NOT resist making them coordinating outfits.  It just needed to happen.  And is there seriously a better trio of characters to turn them into than the newest heroes from the Star Wars Universe?  I seriously had so much fun making these outfits.

Like always, I wanted to make sure the clothes were wearable after the fact…but still a form of cosplay.  It’s my “everyday cosplay” style that i love to put Louis in.  And I LOVE how they turned out!

Good lord, Louis needs some clothes for the upcoming change in seasons.  Badly.  Kiddo has grown so much and his entire closet has been cleared of things that are too short for him.  Nothing is more motivating to get sewing done than a capsule challenge, and I’m super happy that Megan and Judy decided to put together the Spring Mini Capsule!

I love sewing for Louis.  But that’s pretty obvious.  But I especially love sewing for Louis when I get to use awesome fabric that feeds his interests.  It’s probably our fault, but Louis loves all things space.  And this new fabric from Snowy Owl Customs is totally Lou’s style!

Monaluna | Simple Life Blog Tour

Monaluna | Simple Life Blog Tour

Gemia (Phat Quarters) and Kelly (Handmade Boy) contacted me about this tour and I jumped at the opportunity.  An all boys tour?  With fun, new, boy-friendly fabrics?  Yes, yes, yes!

I wasn’t familiar with Monaluna fabrics until now, but I am so glad that I’ve been introduced!  Based in California, it’s a husband-wife team of independent fabric designers, who specialize in organic fabrics with fresh, modern designs.  Their newest line “Simple Life” is darling and perfectly geared toward the boys…yet still totally appropriate for all ages and genders.

Boys Can Wear Pink :: Season 3

We’re baaaaaaack!  Today is the kickoff of Boys Can Wear Pink: Season 3.  It’s one of my favorite tours ever.  Not only for my love of breaking down gender stereotypes one blog post at a time, but also because BCWP was my first ever blog tour to be in, two years ago.  Fun, right?  (Also I love Kelly from Handmade Boy and will practically do anything that woman asks of me.)

Louis was home due to a school break on Friday, Bennett was at school all day, and I was home with Lou….trying to get some work done while having him in my studio.  It wasn’t an easy task.  So many requests and distractions.  And he spilled his drink on my cutting table THREE times.  Three.  It was a red drink and it got everywhere.  Three times, it got everywhere.

Instead of getting angry and freaking out like I wanted to, I decided to task Louis with designing his own outfit that we could make together.  He checked out the fabrics that I had laying around, grabbed some markers and got to designing.  After crossing out three of his illustrations, he came up with this.  So cute.

I was sent some fabrics by RP Custom Fabrics and seriously couldn’t wait to stitch them up into something for Louis and me.  (Sorry Bennett, you’ve been left out again.)  RP is running a line of pre-order fabrics right now that is called “Happy or Hungry” and is filled with fun prints of foods like doughnuts, pizza, hamburgers, tacos, and various candies.  

I was sent the “jumbo sized” versions of doughnuts and pizza and here’s what I made out of them!

I made this outfit and took these pictures of Louis allllll the way back in August.  And I’m kind of mad at myself for not blogging them.  Because they’re too cute to keep to myself, right?  This was a carry-over of Louis’ Harry Potter birthday party and I am so excited about how well Lou rocked his modeling in these.  Get ready for some Harry Potter awesomeness!

It’s time I brought a couple of freebies and tutorials to my own blog, eh?  I wanted to make Louis another fun, festive Christmas shirt…and I thought it’d be fun to share with you guys too!  So here it is!!

EEEEEEP!  I’m back again, tooting my own horn.  I drafted up this slouchy hat for one of my KatyMade boxes and decided to turn it into a real pattern for Patterns for Pirates to be able to share.  And it’s FREE for the 2016 Holiday Freebies.  Fun, right?
