aqua and white swimsuit

aqua and white swimsuit

Another Cosi! Although this one's a bit of a pattern hack-I chopped the top portion of the front and back pattern pieces and color blocked the teal with white. I added a little bow and some simple straps to the back! I do wish I had made the color blocked white portion thicker, but you know how it goes when you're just winging it...sometimes it … [Read more...]

I made this suit before our trip to Bear Lake, but took pics after and you can see how Charlotte got some sun while we were there! All the girls have got that adorable tan line, and I LOVE it. Again, a cosi suit, and I can't remember where I got the fabric! Girl Charlee, maybe? That's my best guess. Sadie played stylist for this shoot and … [Read more...]

watercolor swimsuit

This one ended up being for Sadie after all was said and done...size 5 was just too long for her torso! But she was bent on taking the pics herself, so we did just that, cutie pie. Again the ever awesome Cosi swimsuit was my pattern of choice, with this fun watercolor-esque fabric! it fits my long little Sadie much better, but Charlotte is … [Read more...]

kraken dress

kraken dress

It was high time my kraken got a kraken dress, right? The second I saw the cotton & steel octopi fabric, I knew it was meant to be. I'm kind of a creature of ease-if I have a pattern cut out on my table already, more often than not I'll just use it again. So this is the same tute I used for this dress...it worked with the one yard of … [Read more...]

toddler backpack

We are taking a plane trip this summer out to Utah for a family reunion and I've been gathering things for the girls to carry in their backpacks-the older two at least. I figured I'd carry Ava's stuff...but the second she saw that they were getting backpacks...well you know the drill. She insisted on one of her own. I could barely find a backpack … [Read more...]

star wars Annecy Dress for the Sew What Pattern Club

star wars Annecy Dress for the Sew What Pattern Club

I sewed up one of the gorgeous patterns that make up the Sew What Club right now-the Annecy dress! I knew I wanted to go all Star Wars with this one because Sadie's been begging for a dress made out of the fabric leftover from the R2D2 quilt since I made it... This is a little different than the pattern, but Sadie was adamant that the skirt be … [Read more...]
