Finally finished knitted longies

Front: Back: I LOVE them. made in a size 9m, so hopefully he’ll be at least scooting, if not crawling, while wearing these, so his cute little cloth-diapered monster butt will be visible. pattern is based on the Budgie Bloomers (from ravelry) pants… with lots of improvised modifications….

Dr. Seuss Sweet Pea Sleep Pod

Moses basket made for the RK market booth, pattern called the Sweet Pea Sleep Pod… probably the most involved thing I’ve ever made, but LOOK how cool! It came out pretty perfectly, considering I made it (hurriedly) in a day and a night… the insides were all cotton prints, and the outside was SLICKER (RK […]

With a Twist.

The pattern is called With a Twist… can’t remember the name of the fabrics, but they were all batiks, in a roll-up. I used the scraps to make this dress for the Bean. she loves it because it has pockets, (obvi), but also because the batik is a GREAT weight for summer dresses. what is […]

KMQ playtime

Here’s a really cute teddy bear made with the KMQ (pacific) fabrics…. he’s a simplicity pattern (without vest, hat, etc) He was a total hit with my kiddos for the 2 hours we had him (finished) he got dressed as a cowboy, and covered with coordinating blankets (/mug rugs) here’s the blanket/mugrug: I was just […]


I’m trying to knock stuff off my to-do list (so that I can justify adding to it!) first up was this found quilt top… I used leftovers from the new Lazy Daisy Baskets line, by Darlene Zimmerman, with this cute Mother Goose panel… I like the back better than the front…. …probably because the front […]

Overwhelmed by WIP’s Wednesday…

I had to take a blood test at the Dr this morning, and took some quilty books to look at while waiting for the hour to pass… As I did so, I reminded myself that I have several unfinished projects… I made a list… this is stuff that’s already been cut/started (but just fabric/yarn purchased/saved […]

Seat belt strap cover thingys

I don’t know what these are called…. But I made 3 of them last night in well under an hour. They sell them at target (UGLY) for $11/pair. I like mine better, (and so do the kiddos) I just grabbed scraps out of my scrap bin for the squares, and the binding from binding scraps…. […]

Kona cotton solids banner

Aaaaand, we’re done time to take a break… The Bean wants more summer clothes (as does D, but he’s not as excited about it as the Bean). This banner took very little sewing (but lots of ironing), and I am inordinately proud of it. All the new Kona colors are prairie pointed around it, and […]

A day in the life of a sample seamstress…

I was looking through my phone this morning, and realized I have a bunch of pics of market stuff that I can’t share yet, but I also have a bunch of random stuff that I *can* share…. so here’s a random collection of photos from 1 day last week: my cutting table, 2 days after […]

I hate magenta.

I made this super awesome dress for the Bean, using a vintage pattern…. (sorta. I mean, I copied a vintage pattern but used her sloper) anyway, to make the grey a little more girlie, I embroidered some flowers. And the old magenta floss I used bled all over. poop.
