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.
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.
Made for Mermaids and Patterns for Pirates had so much fun on our last tour that we decided to do it again! “Sew, What Do I Wear?” is back for another round, and this time it’s all about Valentine’s Day outfits. Fun, right?
I’m back for my fourth and final week of sharing the handmade pieces that I’ve managed to wear over the last week. Tibeca of Sewing by Ti is hosting this blogging series all month long…and my take on it is to show just how easy it is to wear something handmade every day.
Let’s get started!
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’m back for my third week of sharing what handmade pieces I wore over the last seven days. Tibeca of Sewing by Ti is hosting this blogging series all month long. Whatcha Wearin January, for me, is just a visual way to show how easy it is to incorporate handmade into your daily wears.
Let’s get to it!
I feel like the most spoiled girl in the world today. Seriously. A GIANT box of fabric arrived on my doorstep and I had no idea it was coming my way. Well, I knew ONE fabric was coming. But I had no idea the delicious fabrics I was about to encounter. Mary Beth and Katy at Sly Fox Fabrics have a forever friend in me.
I thought it would be fun to make an unboxing video. And also thought it would help get me past my being-on-video jitters. So here you go!!
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!
Made for Mermaids has a way of bringing sexy back. You can see one instance HERE. And they did it again with their latest release: Mama Claire. I don’t think you guys are ready for this one! It’s a dolman style shirt, with a cross-over…and it’s REVERSIBLE. Hello awesome!
Welcome to Watcha Wearin January, hosted by the lovely Tibeca of Sewing By Ti!! With the new year, there are a lot of new resolutions. One that we’ve seen floating around the sewing world a lot is that people want to stop being such sewing-group lurkers, and actually take some of that inspiration and sew more for themselves. We are here to help!
