Naughty Nice PJs by Patterns for Pirates

Naughty Nice PJs by Patterns for Pirates

OH. EM. GEE.  When Judy said that she wanted to do a onesie pajama, I was like "Stop it. No you're not.  There's zero chance you're going to get me to wear one of those."  And then like always she proved me wrong.  And I made two of them.  And I have more snaps on the...

P4P Holiday Freebies :: Avast, a Vest!

I literally cracked myself up when I named this pattern.  Puns are life.  But when I get to make pirate puns, it's even better. Today's freebie over at P4P is a new vest.  It's so crazy fast to make.  Even easier to wear.  And is really only one piece with some...

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...

All the Fall Feels with Sly Fox Fabrics

All the Fall Feels with Sly Fox Fabrics

Officially, this is the most autumnal shirt I think I've ever made myself.  I'm generally a person who is drawn more towards the jewel toned colors when I'm choosing fabrics, but Sly Fox Fabrics must know what's up.  Because when this arrived on my doorstep I couldn't...

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...

You guys.  I have not jumped aboard the Hamilton train and have just a very basic knowledge of the play and story.  So when I got a message that the custom costume I was about to make was one of the characters, my heart stopped a little.  And then it turned into a...
