Before we talk about the overalls, can we talk about Miles’ haircut?! We had him scheduled for a trim, and [...]
Cross Front Dress
A new Wolf and Rabbit preorder is up, and I got to sew up this gorgeous floral sample! X Factor was a fun, but challenging pattern for it.
Striped Trees and Playday Pants
This Winter outfit looks so comfortable and stylish! This is my new favorite pants pattern, and the color blocked top let me use some fabric that I didn't have enough of to still make Miles a shirt.
Red Plaid Christmas Dress
I'm kicking of my winter-y sewing with a pretty classic Christmas dress! Good old red plaid and a simple swing design made this a fast and adorable project.
Cool tone stripes and panda bears meet up to make this adorable colorblocked hoodie!
Autumn Floral Outfit
We are in perfect Autumn Layering weather! You can't really beat an adorable dress with a half-length sweater that keeps a baby warm without hiding too much outfit.
Our first Spooky Season outfit this year is an adorable Ghoul print with coordinating stripes!
A Trip to the Pumpkin Patch
We went to the pumpkin patch this weekend, which of course meant some adorable pumpkin outfits for the kiddos!

Wildberry & Hunter Green Outfit
This deep green See You At Six french terry makes amazing Grunge Pants, and a mixed berry print really won Miles over!

Zoe's 8 month outfit keeps a wintery theme with shades of gray and subtle pink. She looks so cozy and comfy in it!

For Zoe's One Month outfit, I made her a pair of bummies, legwarmers, and a headband from an adorable floral fabric.
Traverse Bag - Feathers
Noodlehead recently released a new pattern that is like Envelope Clutch (one of my favorites!) but as a full purse. Of course I had to make one immediately, and I am so very happy with how it turned out.
Vampire Dice Bag
I made a new dice bag for my Vampire: the Masquerade game. I think it's appropriately themed, don't you?
Red and Teal Rainbow Clutch
I bought Anna Graham's Handmade Style book, and the first thing I made was the Rainbow Clutch! This one is for someone else, but I am totally going to make one for myself soon.
Some Tiny Sewing
Today, I am sharing a couple quick, tiny sewing projects that I worked on this past weekend. There's a Pixie Basket, and an Amy's Pretty Pockets pouch.
Elizabethian Hobo Bag
Simply making one Elizabeth inspired bag wasn't enough for me, so I whipped up another! This one is great for running errands and keeping my hands free.
Go Anywhere Bag
This Go Anywhere bag was cursed from the get-go, and everything kept going wrong! It had to sit in time-out for a while, but eventually I picked it back up and finished it. It's so cute that I'm glad I did get it done!
Elizabethian Envelope Clutch
Ever since I spied a gorgeous Elizabeth barrel bag out in the world made by the amazingly talented Diedelbug, I have been wanting to make something that featured the Tula Pink queen.
I finally took the plunge and fussy-cut some pieces for an Envelope Clutch, and it turned out AWESOME!
Pink and Blue Trail Tote
After making and giving away a Pink Trail Tote, I was itching to make one for myself. I made it a while back but just hadn't gotten around to posting about it, because I am an awful blogger. But hey, better late than never!
Nautical Envelope Clutch
A nautical themed Envelope Clutch, made for my best friend in the whole wide world as an embarrassingly late birthday gift. Blue, red and gold come together to make this little handbag.
Baby Goodies Galore
I made a few baby blankets and burp cloths, and they are super cute! Because everything for babies pretty much is adorable.
It's been a busy couple months around here, but I got some sewing done lately and made this sweet little bag! It's the upcoming Arm Candy pattern from Dog Under My Desk.
Something A Bit Different: Wordless - Kindle Case
5KCBWDAY5 - Something A Bit Different: It’s the annual challenge to blog in a way different to how you normally blog.
Ruby Top: Feminine
I made a second Ruby, and this one turned out amazingly! It's fully lined, made of a very sweet fabric, and has a ruffle detail on the bottom. This one is a long top rather than a full dress.
Ruby Dress: Hawaiian Flowers
I've completed my first Ruby dress! This first one turned out a little... rough... but I still love it and look forward to making a few more.
Bright Showoff Bag
They say that a girl can never have enough purses. I used to disagree, until I started sewing them. Now I must have ALL THE BAGS! Ahem. My first Showoff Bag is looking a little worn, so I made a new one.
A Couple Quick Projects
After over a week of dealing with crazy moving stuff, I finally got to sit down with my sewing machine in the new apartment and make a couple small projects. My inner-crafter is pleased!
241 Tote for Mom
I made a 241 Tote for my mom. I think it turned out super cute! She picked the fabrics on her own, the prints are from Joel Dewberry's Notting Hill line.
Showoff Bag & Open Wide Pouch
I made my new favorite bag out of amazing fabric, then made a zipper pouch with the leftover fabric. The bag is amazing, but the pouch and I are not on speaking terms at the moment.
Brick Patch Coasters
I made some Brick Patch Coasters with my brand new Brother sewing machine. And, I learned how to sew on quilt binding!
Over the weekend I made a few sets of coasters, and a cat toy. I'd like a new sewing machine, but mine still does the trick.
