His and Her Raglans!
Late last year, when I did the Raglan SewAlong (check that out HERE), I ended up with two great new raglans- one for myself, and one for the hubs. With all the Christmas and New Year’s crazies, I didn’t get around to blogging about it until now, which works out ok, because today is actually…Read More
Raglan SewAlong: Day 4
Welcome back to the Raglan SewAlong! Yesterday we sewed up our necklines, finishing them with bands, cowls or hoods. Today we are going to be hemming our tops or attaching bands/cuffs to finish the bottom and sleeves. This is the home stretch- yay! I’m also really enjoying seeing your tops as they come together- so…Read More
Raglan Sew-Along: Day 3
Welcome back to the Raglan SewAlong! Yesterday we sewed up our sleeve and side seams, and added any front details (ie pockets). Today we are going to dive into finishing the necklines of our tops. You have three basic choices here: Neckband, hood or cowl (women’s only). I’m demonstrating all three in the video,…Read More
Raglan Sew-Along: Day 2
Welcome back to the Raglan SewAlong! Yesterday we selected our supplies, decided on our options, and cut out our fabric, so today we’re ready for the fun stuff: sewing!

For this sewalong, I’ll be using the Centerfield Raglan and Add-on Pack, and the Men’s Hudson Pullover, both from Greenstyle. I highly recommend trying both these patterns, but if you’ve already exhausted your pattern budget for the month, you’re welcome to…Read More
Men’s and Women’s Forester Coats
Late last year, when I tested the Trailblazer collection (mens, women’s, children’s and nestledown- whew! that was quite a project, you can read about it here), Lisa hinted that there was a coat in the works, and asked if the trailblazer folks would be interested in testing it. I said yes, of course, because my…Read More
The Family that wears Camo together….
One of my sewing goals for 2018 was to make more things for my husband and sons, and to delve more into their fitting needs, as well as my own (see the whole post here). I’ve had 30 years (plus or minus a few…won’t say which!) to evaluate my body shape and its fitting idiosyncrasies-…Read More

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…Read More

How much interest does your spouse take in your sewing? Being our resident photographer, Stephen knows about a few pattern companies, and his favorite by far is Twig and Tale. He has been showing me photos of adorable vests, coats and accessories he wants me to make the kids for months, so when the…Read More
