KCWC finale: Vintage patterns….

C and I had a morning date to the antique flea market, and while he was busy inspecting and buying a vintage cash register (seriously, for work), I stumbled upon these gems. Priced at $2-3 each, I absolutely could not resist. none of them are the right size, but I can grade the size 1’s […]

KCWC raglan t-shirt

My son has a really big head, so when I saw this snapped raglan shirt pattern from Ottobre Magazine, I KNEW I needed to make it for D. But it’s only in toddler sizes. SO, I decided to make the pattern in the largest toddler size for the Bean, and the then figure out how […]

KCWC: Monster butt Longies

I’m *still* waiting for my Ottobres, which I want for D, and the Bean has been such a disaster I’m totally unmotivated to sew for her from her sloper. So I’m knitting another pair of longies for Crockett. I’m using the Budgie Bloomers pattern again, but I think I figured out how to make them […]

KCWC early start

So last year, a friend gave me some of her old clothes to refashion…. I turned this pair of stretch cord jeans into maternity pants a while back, but the stretch is a little too much, and the maternity aspect makes them fall down. I thought and thought about how to fix them, and then […]

Dr Seuss baby bunting quilt

I just realized I’d never posted about this bunting/pennant quilt, made a few weeks ago for a pregnant lady at RK…. Lots of different Dr Seuss fabrics, and some Kona solids…. when you lift up the Kona solids, you’ll find textured fabrics underneath…. I only photographed some of the underneaths, but there is: laminated cotton, […]

Crockett pants

Im preparation for the new arrival…. a pair of wool longies (hopefully a long size 3-6m)… just because, I knitted the Fibonacci sequence in on one leg…. (starting on the left, with the orange: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, and then the cuff…) I also drafted out a pair of 3-6m pants, with extra […]

Pre-wash

Here’s the quilt for our baby boy, as designed by me and the Bean. C bought me an early birthday present, a walking foot, so this was my first time using it. LOVE. here’s the back, pieced with scraps. here’s the oops on the back. just so I don’t get a swelled head. here’s the […]

Baby boy quilt-in-progress, take 2

First, she sorted… (Well, first I sewed, THEN she sorted) Then we played. This one is much smaller, probably 45×55, so it’ll actually be for the baby. But it’s the same fabric line as D’s quilt, so they’ll coordinate. Cause clearly my house is all about coordination (not!) C just ordered me an early birthday […]

Finished quilt…

D requested the black sashing with yellow (perle cotton) stitching to simulate roads…. I pieced the back with the leftover big pieces…. It’s not super┬ánoticeable, because I switched thread color A LOT, but each block is FMQ’ed differently… sort of a practice sampler for me… the different quilting is most noticeable from the back, but […]

A little boy quilt

I always have lots of scraps (sometimes lots of actual yardage) leftover after I make a quilt top for Robert Kaufman, so I decided to use some of the smaller scraps to make a quilt for the boy I am gestating right now… here’s the view looking down right now…. the Bean “helped” me whip […]
