Spring Kids Clothes!

By Sarah | March 18, 2018 | 2 Comments

I havne’t done many strike offs for a while, but I recently had the opportunity to sew up some fabrics for Peekaboo, and I jumped on it, knowing it would motivate me to sew some cute things for my kids for the spring season. And, since part of the point of this blog is to…

Hit the Road Pants!

By Sarah | January 31, 2018 | 1 Comment

I wrote more about fitting boys and men in my last post, but essentially, when it comes to my twins, every winter, we have this choice: A) Pants that fit at the waist but are way too short B) Pants that are falling down but are long enough to cover their ankles It’s no choice…

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-…

Geranium Dress and Hank & Clementine Fabric Tour!

By Sarah | January 18, 2018 | 2 Comments

I hinted at it in my last post, but I’m excited to finally be able to share the other birthday dress I made for this precious girl! A few months ago I was contacted by the Phat Quarters shop, asking if I was interested in participating in a fabric tour for the new Hank & …

Birthday Girl!

This girl. You wouldn’t believe how she lights up our lives- and today we get to celebrate, because she’s turning TWO!!! Before I had kids (and when my twins were young and the days seemed so L-O-N-G) people would always remark about how “time flies with little ones”- and I would do a little mental…

Christmas Traditions and Layered Sleeve Tutorial

By Sarah | December 5, 2017 | 0 Comments

I love a good Christmas tradition, and one of ours is to have mommy-made pajamas to lounge in on Christmas morning. Last year, I made my boys, daughter, and their friends a matching set of Polar Express themed pajamas- which are still in heavy rotation this year- but getting a little short arms, and kids…

Fancy girl!

It’s been too long since I’ve blogged something I’ve made for the Princess. I was a bit scared off by the whole stolen photo debacle (which we did manage to correct), and the fact that she’s less than cooperative when it comes to modeling. My sons can be encouraged (read: bribed) to pose appropriately- baby…

Superstar Hoodie!

By Sarah | October 12, 2017 | 2 Comments

My boys have grown like crazy this summer, as boys in general tend to do when you’re not looking. All of a sudden, they’re big seven year olds, and that sweet baby look is being replaced by a more mature confidence as they step forward in their journey toward becoming men. Its amazing and heartbreaking…

NO MORE Dinosaurs in Church on Christmas!

By Sarah | September 15, 2017 | 0 Comments

I don’t ask my boys to dress up often- I’m usually pretty laid back about what they wear, but I every year on Christmas and Easter I go digging frantically through their drawers to come up with something church appropriate for the holidays. And I usually come up empty- as their fashion sense leans more…

Holiday Dress for Baby!

By Sarah | September 14, 2017 | 0 Comments

One of the things I dreamed about when I found out I was having a girl, was the Christmas and Easter dresses I would sew for her- but real life with a baby/toddler often gets in the way of realizing these dreams- especially if I wait until the last minute! That’s why I was so…
