Take the Plunge Swimsuit by Patterns for Pirates

Take the Plunge Swimsuit by Patterns for Pirates

Me: I’m never going to post photos of myself in a swimsuit on the internet again.
Also me: Hey Internet, here are some photos of me in a swimsuit!

This isn’t my fault.  Blame everything on Judy!  She decided that P4P needed another swimsuit pattern and here we are again.  This time, it’s a one-piece with a fun cross-over bodice…which magically looks AMAZING on every tester.  Want to learn more about it?  Let’s do this!

Happy almost-Friday, friends!  I’m helping you get through to the end of the week by giving you this super simple high-low skirt hack, using the Made for Mermaids Mama Chloe skirt.  The pattern itself is FABULOUS and….if you join the Facebook group, you can find a code that gets you both the girls and women’s versions for free!

That Sara from RP Custom Fabrics…she just knows how to make some really amazing fabrics!  Her newest round of custom prints (going up for pre-order TOMORROW!!) is “Bellisima Mundo” and is seriously the coolest round ever.

I. Freaking. Love. Halloween.
I’ve probably mentioned this before on here.  But it’s true.  I’m not all about the blood and gore Halloween…more for the cutesy/dorky/creepy/crawly side of things.

I love themes.  I love costumes.  And I love the creativity behind Halloween.  I just love it all.  So even if I’m sewing strike-off fabrics well out of season, I don’t care.  Because the strikes are Halloween prints and I am ALLLLLLL over it!

Today’s post is all for the boys!  I’m so excited to share with you the two patterns that I tested for Made for Mermaids: the Dylan Tees.  Wahoo!

They are the counterpart to the Vivienne that I posted yesterday.  And I love that M4M is bringing some love to the boys.  Because I seriously love sewing for Louis and Bennett and I feel that the Y Chromosome is greatly underrepresented in the pattern world.  Kudos to Team Mermaid for making it happen for us!

PATTERN RELEASE DAY IS HERE!!!  It’s like Christmas in the sewing world, am I right?

Made for Mermaids is releasing FOUR patterns all at the same time and I am geeked.  They span the entire family…boys, girls, men and women.  AND they’re fabulous for pattern mixing, which is way up my alley.  I have so many photos to share that I’m going to break it down into two days of posts.  And of course, I’m being a brat and showing off my photos first.  Would you expect any less?

Handmade Boy’s The Fighter Tee | Blog Tour!

Handmade Boy’s The Fighter Tee | Blog Tour!

Throughout my sewing adventures in the last few years, I’ve met some really great people and made some amazing friends.  I’m honored to say that Kelly from Handmade Boy is one of those sew-friends of mine!  She’s a fabulous maker, but an even more fabulous person.  Why?

Kelly is running in a St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital marathon and pledged to raise $1,000 for this very worthy cause.  In the ultimate bout of creative thinking, Kelly decided to create a sewing pattern and donate 100% of the proceeds to her fundraising efforts for the run.  Amazing, right??

Last Day of Kindergarten

Last Day of Kindergarten

It’s official.  When we pick Louis up from school today at 11:30, he will be on summer break and we will have a First Grader living under our roof.  FIRST GRADE.  Dead…I’m just dead. 

This year has just absolutely flown by.  In a good way.  (Minus all of the doctors visits due to 230948203948 illnesses during the last few months.)  But damn, I feel like I needed more time to take it all in.

May BeeBox | Vinegar + Honey Co.

The 15th day of every month is quickly becoming my favorite day.  Because it usually means I get a notification in my email, telling me that my BeeBox from Vinegar + Honey Co has shipped.  Fabric mail is the only kind of mail I like to get.
