Women’s Raglan by Pattern for Pirates

My favorite types of patterns are the ones that can be finished super quickly without it looking like it.  I don’t plan things like I’d like to.  I am so ‘fly by the seat of my pants’ that it’s not even funny.  And when I get an idea in my head, I want...

The Lumberjack Shirt by Patterns for Pirates

Oh boy.  I love sewing for Louis.  He loves when I sew for him.  But it really is a bigger challenge to find something more exciting to make for him than a basic pair of pants or a tshirt.  Parents of little girls have it easy.  Well, in some...

Bye Bye Love | Bag of the Month Club

Two weeks ago, I shared my first ever Katy-made purse.  I absolutely loved sewing it.  My first taste of purse-sewing blood had me thirsty for more.  So I went wild and signed myself up for a Bag of the Month Club.  Once a month for six months,...

A Girl’s First (homemade) Purse.

I’m going against my own rules and blogging on a Sunday night.  Louis is watching a movie on his iPad and eating popcorn and Bennett is occupied doing Bennett things…so here I am.  On the computer.  So not something I normally do on weekends.  I...
