Two plain ole’ t-shirts…

It’s become a tradition to sew something for each kid on their birthday.  A few months ago, David had a special birthday.  It was his golden birthday, he turned 8 on the 8th.  So of course I had to commemorate this special occasion into one of his birthday shirts. I used light gold foil ironContinue reading “Two plain ole’ t-shirts…”

Camo Boys and Sweatpants

My two little boys are currently in their camo phase.  Do all boys go through a camo phase?  All my boys have!  If their camo clothes are clean, they refuse to wear anything else.  Scratch that, they wear their camo clothes when they’re dirty, wet, stained, ripped, dusty, ragged, holey and in any possible condition!Continue reading “Camo Boys and Sweatpants”

Boy Raglans and Boy Antics

I love these two boys and I love sewing for these two boys!  This project was born out of the need to do some scrap busting.  You see, my friend and fellow tall seamstress over at Sew Journers put out a free spreadsheet called Stash Shrinker.  The idea is to choose a multiplier and onlyContinue reading “Boy Raglans and Boy Antics”

Future Dreamer Pajamas {Sewing for Kindergarten}

The final outfit from our Sewing For Kindergarten mini wardrobe is these pajamas.  I’m not sure why a simple pair of pajamas was so fun to make, but this ended up being one of my favorite pieces from the wardrobe.  This outfit was actually the fastest sew of the whole group.  Maybe it was becauseContinue reading “Future Dreamer Pajamas {Sewing for Kindergarten}”
