"No one can sing who has smog in his throat." - Dr. Seuss, The Lorax

'...and I want to sing!" - Kaylee

The Lorax is my sisters favorite, it speaks to her on a deep level. She is forever saying that the plants,  ocean, and animals are her babies. She takes it very seriously and find no humor in the idea of someone harming any of them. Our dad isn't even allowed to skip rocks unless she asks them first 🙂

I embroidered the Lorax and some Truffula trees on the front of her top, she was so excited to see them. 

I took the pink color way for this current round over at Fabriculous custom Fabric and paired it with her pink faux denim. They compliment each other so well! I used them to make this raglan from Patterns for Pirates

I made her some matching socks with the scraps from my fat half, the new no shows from The Wolf & the Tree, I made her the regular, she likes them more slipper style, the joys of island living wearing normal socks feels weird. 

 These are some of the other options from this round that my sister Kaylee highly recommends you check out! She will be getting the Lorax panel of course, and maybe some of the trees, they are pretty cute!

My love affair with Candy Castle

I have been thinking about what really set me on this path with confidence and conviction; The Peppermint Swirl. My mom saw this dress and really wanted it for my sister, the pattern was purchased in January and there it sat until march with me avoiding it. I admit I was intimidated. It looked so complicated! 

The above picture is the one she finally talked me into making, if you are not familiar with this dress you will not realize I completely screwed it up, it is supposed to have a swirl not ruffle look. Using my moms Facebook at the time I nervously posted in in Candy Castles group, the response was not what I expected. 

People LOVED it, they wanted to know how I did it... What?! This mistake started a crazy trend for a hot minute. Something else happened too though, while I had cut it wrong, I made it! I made a really cool dress that Kaylee loved and total strangers were trying to copy! ME! Alyssa Cotter at 12 did that! 

 I kept making them and they got better and better each ti…

Being a Military Child

Not everyone understands what being a Military kid is like. It is amazing and sad at the same time. I have lived in several states, been on more flights than I can count and gotten to see places people dream of vacationing. I have also had to say good bye to so many people, the adventure never ends. 

All of this is why the round that Mandi over at Fabriculous made a reality is so important to me. I came to her with an idea for a small off shoot, a panel and something to go with it and she made it into a 3 color way, 2 panel option, blanket topper, mind blowing round! It is something featured on her business page, something I am seeing people rallying around and finding as beautiful as I do. Its truly a humbling and incredible feeling. 

Not everyone understood the main color choices, which were requested by me, and she did add another color way for those not feeling the purple but I wanted to take a quick moment and explain why purple. Purple wasn't chosen lightly and if you know …

Let me tell you a Fabriculous story...

Travel with me back to December 2018, I shared a scarf I made into Fabriculous custom fabrics, I thought it was really cool and wanted to show it off. Out of no where the owner Mandi commented on it and asked if I had a store, and then shared it to her business page and placed an order! Now this might not have been my first order ever, but I mean she could sew this herself! I shared how exciting that was all over to family and friends 🤣

Flash forward a month, I was getting ready for a little family vacation to a resort here on the island, making a bunch of things to take on the trip, cause thats the way I roll. I get a message from Mandi, offering me some strikes if I was interested, and of course I was! 

I got them the day I was leaving for a few and made some pegs right away cause I was so excited, not only strikes and so many of them, but sewing themed! Talk about a dream offer. 

 I wanted to wow Mandi, because this was a HUGE opportunity to me, a well established group, full of …
