YOTB dusty blue lumberjack hat

YOTB dusty blue lumberjack hat

Here's the thing about this hat. Jack absolutely despises it... He was crying most of the time he wore it for pics and we only got some pictures because I gave him so many gummy bears. BUT I think he looks adorable in it and I hope that he wears it without freaking out eventually. I used Delia's adorable and free pattern, and bought the … [Read more...]

YOTB grey and green triangle raglan

YOTB grey and green triangle raglan

  Another week, another shirt! This time it was a Recess Raglan for little Jack Jack. I adore raglan tees-they are SO easy to sew up and also to customize with different fabrics! This one I sewed up in a 12-18 month size and it fits well, although the sleeves are too long. I think my kids have short arms! Or this specific kid at least. … [Read more...]

the year of the boy

the year of the boy

  I know last year was a bit...sparse...on the sewing front on this ol blog here. (to say the least) So...I set a goal for myself this year to try and remedy that.

master bathroom makeover with quadrostyle floor tiles

  This master bathroom makeover has been needed for a looong time. I had always put it off because someday we plan on tearing out the hall closet and incorporating it into the bathroom so we can have a tub...but that's someday. I finally decided that I'd had enough and in a whirlwind 2-3 weeks, made over the master bathroom! It's a tiny … [Read more...]
