Video Tutorial: Moxi Shorts and Bias Binding

The Moxi shorts from Greenstyle Creations are one of my go-to summer patterns- they fit my #momlife perfectly, and give off a cool, athletic vibe even if I haven’t hit the gym all week. Once you know the pattern, they go together pretty quickly, but there are a few “tricky” parts that might trip up someone…

A few months ago, Becky Nohava (see her Instagram here) posted a photo of a top in Knitpop that she had hacked to have the most amazing back- like no pattern I had ever seen (and I’ve seen a few!). It was quite popular, but I was too intimidated to try it myself without a little…

More Moxi’s!

Surprise Surprise! I made more Moxi’s! During testing the others testers kept sewing up all this gorgeous floral scuba, turning me a little green with envy (not a very flattering look for me). I knew I would have to make up a pair as soon as I could source it, and lucky for me, the Fab…
