Family Trailblazers!

You might have seen it coming….but with the release of the women’s Trailblazer and nestledown add on, I now have a whole family of matching Trailblazer vests! I’ve made matching items for mommy and me, or the kids before, but never had an opportunity to create something for everyone out of the same pattern, and…

Fall Textures!

It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of Itch to Stitch Patterns– they’re well designed, practical (read: mom friendly and no crazy styles that make me raise my eyebrows!), and the instructions are top notch: three of my biggest criteria when choosing a pattern company to sew from. On top of all that, the…

Greenstyle FitCapsule: Part 2

I’ve been a bit distracted lately with learning how to educate small people (in case you missed my post on it, we are homeschooling this year), traveling to Hawaii, and celebrating our family birthday month (6 of us have birthdays all in the same week, including my twins), but I’ve finally managed to sew up…

The Thong Song….

There’s a song on repeat in our house right now, thanks to my husband’s juvenile sense of humor and my sons’ unerring ability to pick up on things they aren’t supposed to hear: I didn’t anticipate adding the word “thong” to my kids vocabulary, and I hope someday they’ll forgive me for the side effects…

Shibori and Slow Fashion

       A couple months ago, Stephanie (of Swoodson Says) put out a call for participants on a Shibori Dyeing Blog Tour. Now, I’ve never dyed a thing in my life, but that didn’t stop me from signing up and reassuring myself that it would be “quick and easy”. Whenever you tell yourself something is going…

Tip Tuesday: Side Boob (and how to avoid it!)

Happy Tuesday! We are back from vacation, and (semi) recovered from all our adventures (lets not talk about the laundry though, m’kay?) and I’m excited to share a new blog series with you: Tip Tuesday and Fail Friday! This idea came up while a dear friend was visiting a couple weeks ago- I’m sure you…

Applique Bikini Hack!

Since swimsuit season started (which is right after Valentine’s Day according to the ever strange advertising schedule of big box stores) I’ve been lusting over the applique swim bikini’s I’ve seen in those annoying (but sometimes useful) ads on Facebook. I was stymied, however, by what type of appliqué would be suitable for swim. Well,…
