Check out what I sewed in 2015! My year in sewing {2015} a review is now on the blog! #isew   #sewing   #handmade   #sewingforkids   #selfishsewing  
As the year wraps up I’ve been reflecting on a lot of things, including the things that I’ve made during the year. As usual there are a lot of things on my ‘to make’ list that I never quite got around too (most of which come ...

I upcycled another adults tee for #kidsclothesweek  ... I scored this top from the Op Shop and refashioned into a nice little one for Isabelle. It was a quick 45 min sew! Yay! Only one day to go! #KCW   #isew   #upcycling

Last Sunday my first born, Noah turned 7! His birthday present from us turned out rather batman themed, including a pair of Bat PJs made by me! #sewingforkids   #isew   #sewing   #kidsbirthdays   #handmadegifts  
Last Sunday was Noah’s 7th birthday! I am really not sure where those SEVEN years have gone, I know it’s cliche to say but it really does feel like yesterday that he was my little baby! Noah’s birthday present from us ended u...

I'm sure you're all sick of me sharing my #kidsclothesweek  makes here on my blog! Well, good news today was the last day! (...Until next time!) 

I made Noah some stripey harem pants and I'm pretty stoked with how quick they were to sew and how good they turned out :) #isew   #KCW   #sewingforkids  
Yay! I made it! Today is the final day of Kid's Clothes Week, day 7. I’ve enjoyed it as always, but we’ve been busy with not much spare time for sewing – hence another easy project today! Some simple black and white stripe ha...
