My friend Julie says everyone is doing it, so of COURSE I had to join her on the Scandinavian Star bandwagon. I mean, they’re JUST SO CUTE. And… um…. I have plenty of fabric scraps. I could probably make enough to cover a christmas tree lot. 😜 Instant gratification! Back to actually basting!
As mentioned in this post about PAINT! I’ve totally redesigned my BoPeep pattern, and I’m in LOVE. it’s super clean and reversible, and, best of all, my daughter LOVES it. She has about 8 now, that she wears pretty much constantly. I posted some of my tests on Instagram, (I’m @ramonarose over there), and some […]
It’s finished! I made this little baby quilt as a fundraising item for Lyons Academy of Irish Dance (D and the Bean both dance here). My friend Sandi, @missplanner on instagram, was kind enough to share her shamrock block dimensions with me, so I whipped out the top in one night (patchwork is cotton, solids […]
I had quite a bit of this adorable fabric left after a project for RK, so I used it to test a dress pattern. I’m in love with this dress: and I used to own it in a size 2, but it never worked for the bean. the size was all wonky, and it was […]
I dream of leather bag making, but something always to go wrong. Skipped stitches, broken thread, etc. I think this time, since I stayed SUPER simple, I actually achieved success! I used Isocord (Isacord?) machine embroidery polyester thread for all the sewing. it’s super fine, but WAY strong. I put in a […]
Strips of all my greens, and greens donated by friends. Bordered in Kona Kiwi, backed in Spot On Extra Wide (in green, obvi), and bound in Kona textured, blue. Quilted in off-centered “organic” concentric circles with green Wonderfil 50wt. The boy is VERY happy.
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 […]
I dunno if I’ll ever be able to top this. I’m bouncing off the walls with self-pride and anticipation of The Bean’s excitement in the morning. Look at the perfect pointy waist bit!!! I put a big red ribbon bow in the back, because…. why not? it’s a little long, at her […]
I’m working on getting another dress pattern up and running, and so I have been testing my pattern frantically. One of The Bean’s friends recently had a birthday, and since they’re the same size, I decided to make a dress for her. Since they’re besties, I thought they might like to have similar […]
*Giveaway closed, Random Number Generator chose 3 winners, (53, 3, 39)* Thanks for participating! Do you know Carrie? I met her a few years ago at the Long Beach Quilt Show, while walking around, shopping, with my friends, Jules and Tess. Carrie is AWESOME (and so is her mother). We were drawn into the SUCH Designs […]
