Three Ponte Camden Raglan Tees

Today I’ve got a huge comparison of these three different ponte fabrics over at CaliFabrics.  Please go check it out!

Since Annie hasContinue reading “Three Ponte Camden Raglan Tees”

Today we’re sharing an outfit Annie has been wearing all spring and summer!  Better late than never when it’s a llama queen outfit, right?   Back when we sewed up some of the other fabrics from Raspberry Creek Fabric’s spring CLUB line, we fell in love with this llama print too.  They’re so, well, llama-ishContinue reading “Llama Queen Outfit”

Patriotic Fabric Parade

Summer Pajamas

This week I decided to make summer pajamas for some of my kids.  Two of my older boys decided they didn’t need Mom to sew them a new pair of “fun” summer pajamas, but the other 5 were interested.  I had ordered some fun fabric panels from Peekaboo Pattern Shop with summer pajamas in mind. Continue reading “Summer Pajamas”
