Birthday/camp sewing

This boy turned 7 this week. he requested a full Luke Skywalker/Jedi costume. Pants (pegged so they bunch up), Tunic (over a white t-shirt, and with the flappy vest-y bits sewn on to a simple shirt), and, of course, the jedi robe. he also “needed” (I.e. has been hinting since Xmas that he would really […]

For an adorable architect

My friend Erik is an architect/urban planner. (he’s also one of my daughter’s godfathers). when I got this amazing new fabric (Architextures by Carolyn Friedlander), with blueprint-y prints, I knew I needed to make him something. He’d once commented on a crayon roll of the Bean’s, saying it’d be great to have something like that […]
