#KatyMade16

Last year, I recapped all of my favorite makes and collaged all of my instagram #KatyMade tags and I felt like it should happen again.  Maybe if no one else enjoys it, I at least love looking back at what I made over the past 365 days.

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!!

Mama Joy by Made for Mermaids

Mama Joy by Made for Mermaids

By george, Team Mermaid has done it again!  Allow me to introduce you to Mama Joy.

Joy is coming out as part of Made for Mermaids’ “Dreamy Collection” and is simply stunning.  I love that it can be so dressy and so dressed down, depending on how you style it.  Plus, HELLO options!  Peplum, dress, maxi, optional zipper, two necklines, pockets…and they have some hacks coming to the blog that will take your pattern even further.   It’s perfection.

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?

Team Mermaid is back at it again with another amazing TWELVE days of freebies on their blog.  They are ambitious and awesome and generous.  Love those girls!  While I decided not to overwhelm myself and participate in all twelve days, I am joining them for a few days of freebies.  And today is one of those days!

It’s release day!  It’s release day!  This cardigan was one of the longest teases we’ve ever done with Patterns for Pirates and it’s fun to finally be releasing it.  Ready to see what I made?  (I will link all of the fabrics and patterns at the bottom of the post, in case you’re wanting to know about them.)

Going Lumberjack :: Relaxed Raglan Hack

Going Lumberjack :: Relaxed Raglan Hack

Eep!  I made a thing.  I might have stayed up WAY past my bedtime to make it.  And I might have been cursing (loudly) when I had to seam rip through fleece….which is damn near impossible to do.  But I love it.  

I love it so much I couldn’t wait to take picture and share.
So here she is: my new fall/winter jacket!  Woot!
