School Day Knit Jumper
When I saw this month's Project Run and Play inspiration pattern , I knew instantly what I would make. I had this great knit fabric that I had been wanting to make a dress out of.  And last week, I tried a circle skirt for the first time and was really happ...
I had this great knit fabric that I had been wanting to make a dress out of. And last week, I tried a circle skirt for the first time and was really happy with the results (one of which was endless twirling from Little Sister). So I had already been planning to make a dress with a circle skirt ...

Sewed up a couple of quick skirts for the girl this week--this circle skirt and a simple border print skirt!
Little Sister has been wanting to wear skirts and tees lately, and I keep buying fabric with the intention of making skirts for her. But somehow, they keep getting pushed down the priority list--maybe because I always think of skirts being such a quick and easy project, that I always choose to ...

Split-Yoke Ruby Top!
I made another Ruby Top that I adapted from Made By Rae 's great pattern!  I used this fantastic Nani Iro Fuccra Rakuen double gauze (the same stuff I used on Little Sister's bubble dress ), and added long sleeves so I could wear it right now. This is the f...

Oh my gosh, your granddaughter is such a beauty!  And the dress is so sweet on her.  How fun that you got to sew for her in person!  
While visiting my daughter's family, I got the chance to sew a baby bubble dress for my almost eight month old granddaughter and to play along with Project Run and Play's January 2015 sewing challenge.  I started this pro...

Upcycled Holiday Dress!
I made Little Sister the sweetest holiday outfit to wear for her school Winter Concert!  She helped me choose the fabrics and style, she worked with me to make the fabric covered buttons, and it came out so cute! This is not that dress. The day after making...

Deer and Doe Plantain Tee
I made myself a tee from the free Plantain Tee pattern from Deer and Doe .  I'm so happy with how the prints came together!  It's such a cheerful top. The yellow and white stripe was another one of my 100 yen/meter (about $1/yard) finds, and it's a nice one...
The yellow and white stripe was another one of my 100 yen/meter (about $1/yard) finds, and it's a nice one. It's soft but not too stretchy. My top maybe came out a tiny bit small, but only because of this fabric--if I was using a more typically stretchy knit I would make the same size again.

Convertible Messenger Bag
Sometimes, I really impress myself.  I am not the first person to think of this, but that doesn't make it any less cool--for The Boy's birthday, I made him a messenger bag that converts to a backpack.   This idea was born because I am sick of toting my own ...
