Kaylee & her Mermaid Swimsuits

My sister loves the ocean, and mermaids. I was so excited to be able to make her two suits out of this fabric. This is just a great subtle print, its not all cartoon like and in your face making it perfect for all ages, verses really little kiddie.  This is the  Sweetheart Swimsuit  from peek-a-boo. Its a super cute designs and a great fit  It offers a lot of coverage while still offering a bit of fun in the sun personality.  This is the  Be Brilliant  from Ellie & Mac. This is one of her favorite styles, I have made her a few like this because its a swimsuit, but has twirl!  I did extent the length of the top on this one a little bit, personal preference. I have made it for her shorter as well, she likes the dress style better.  A close up of the amazing fabric from  Elephant House Fabrics . I have swim from other companies as well, but this is a dream to sew with  I have several styles of swim suits I have made

Elephant House Mermaids Swim

I am so excited to share this awesome swim collection with you. I got to sew strikes with the blue mermaid and this is by far my favorite swim to work with! This is a suite I made for my self.  The amazing fabric is from  Elephant House Fabrics  the wild heart free spirit collection that is open now 22-31 March.  This suit is the  Oasis Swimsuit by Ellie & Mac  There are several options to the top and bottom, this is just my favorite of what my mom will allow me to wear lol.  I get so many compliments on this top especially, it has so much more personality than a basic halter top, and offers more coverage on the front than a standard bikini.  Took the suit to the beach to test it out in the sun, waves and sand. O love it so much. I had just planned to make my sister a couple of suits cause Im not normally into mermaids, but I love these, they are more subtle and not at all cartoony.  As always I am happy to help your swimsuit dreams com

Floral George + Ginger Janis

This  Janis  top from  George + Ginger  has quickly become a fan favorite. The detail on the sleeves is epic! There are some amazing pants that launched this weekend in the spring collection as well, the  Zappa 's! This top and those pants together are the perfect rocker combo I can't wait to make the outfit I have created in my mind and show it off!  This on was made out of DBP (think soft legging material, only better and less prone to holes) super soft and comfy.  The detail on the arms, again EPIC! such personality and something unique and unusual.  EMAIL      WEBSITE      FACEBOOK      INSTAGRAM

A thousand years or more ago,...

When I was newly sewn, There lived four wizards of renown, Whose name are still well-known: Bold Gryffindor from wild moor, Fair Ravlenclaw from glen, Sweet Hufflepuff from valley broad, Shrewd Slytherin from fen. They share a wish, a hope, a dream, They hatched a daring plan, To educate young sorcerers, Thus Hogwarts school began. Now each of these four founders Formed their own house, for each Did value different virtues, In the ones they had to teach. By Gryffindor, the bravest were Prized far beyond the rest; For Ravenclaw, the cleverest Would always be the best; For Hufflepuff, hardworkers were Most worthy of admission; And power-hungry Slytherin Loved those of great ambition. While still alive they did divide Their favourates from the throng, Yet how to pick the worthy ones When they were dead and gone?  'Twas Gryffindor who found the way, He whipped me off his head The founders put some brains in me So I could cho

A leaf on the wind...

You might belong in Gryffindor where dwell the brave at heart...

Their daring nerve and chivalry set Gryffindors apart. Gryffindor house is one of the most popular and sought after to be in houses. Having the chosen one amongst your ranks will have that effect.  This package includes a scarf with hidden pocket which felt very fitting when thinking about the cloak of invisibility.  There is also a great stand up pouch that has a full zipper and house colors inside it, with harry glasses on the outside.  This also includes a ID/card wallet with hidden house crest on the inside outside newsprint. Matching key fob and a house pin from Elephant House Fabrics.  EMAIL      WEBSITE      FACEBOOK      INSTAGRAM

First Men's Pattern Testing - The Man They Call Jayne

I got to do a great test for  5 out of 4  for the Ryan raglan. First pattern I have gotten to test for my dad. He is a HUGE firefly fan and was so happy to get this shirt.  I made him two I will share the second one later as well. This shirt though has so many options for sleeves, length and a hood. The fit is great, they care so much about testing and making sure the fit is perfect.  This fabric was a special rerun a few months ago from  The Fabric Geeks , though they are currently running a rerun round now FACEBOOK      INSTAGRAM      EMAIL      WEBSITE
