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...]

YOTB flashback skinny tee

woohoo! The first article of clothing for my year of the boy challenge! I had a feeling shirts were going to be staples for me, so why not start out with one? I had this lovely grey striped Lillestoff fabric sitting on the shelf too, that was calling my name. I sewed up the Flashback Skinny tee pattern......GUYS it was the first one I've ever … [Read more...]

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. I want to sew more but I'm switching gears a little from my norm! My goal for 2018 is to sew (at least) one thing for Jack each week. YEAR OF THE BOY! I am hoping this kick … [Read more...]

BLUSH fabric baby blanket

I am in love with Dana's new gorgeous line of Art Gallery fabric, BLUSH. SO pretty! I picked out the floret bright for my baby blanket-NOT an announcement, just made it for my sister in law's new baby on the way. (spoiler alert, Steph!)

Sadie asked for a donut party this year, which I was ALL ABOUT. (I mean, seriously...gimmee all the donuts plz) It was a just friends party, and so it was a lot more low maintenance for me. I ordered this adorable sprinkles invite from this great etsy shop! Hung up my ruffle shower curtain that I love to use for a backdrop, with a pastel … [Read more...]

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...]

mermaid skirt tutorial

Mermaid skirt time! Perfect for costumes, Disneyland trips, or viewings of The Little Mermaid on Broadway! (which was our reason!) Here is the fabulous fabric I found to make the skirts-I got all three skirts out of one yard of fabric, so the cost was amazing! So the size I am making I would call a 4-6 girls size. My girls ages 4, 7, and 9 are … [Read more...]

WHAAAAAT? A blog post? what's that you say? I'm going to attempt to resuscitate this poor ol blog, so first things first...blog all the things I made and didn't blog! Because even when I don't write about what I make...it still means it was made. I still love to MAKE. It's in my blood. I started working on Halloween costumes today and I felt so … [Read more...]

Disney trip sans kids!

We just got back last week from a kid free Disneyland trip! and it was AWESOME. We love taking our kids, believe me...but since we are pretty much kids at heart it was a must do for this years' kid free trip! (we're making a trip like this a yearly thing!) The weather was perfect when we went (last week of June), which was lucky! I strongly … [Read more...]
