Free Halloween Ghost Cut File

Another not a tutorial! Here’s a free file I made up as a quick Halloween tee shirt for myself. I started creating this file last year shortly before Halloween, and it went through a bunch of drafts to where it is. It had cute arms! It had different fonts! It had booze. But now it’s done, and it’s ready for …

Circle Shrug Free Pattern

Happy Thursday! Today I have a really easy and customizable FREE pattern to share with you! I kept seeing a ton of these drape cardigans out there, but nothing in a circular shape like I see in a lot of knitting patterns.

Tee for me

It’s Thursday of Selfish Sewing Week, and I’ve finally gotten to make something for me! I spent the earlier part of the week sewing up a tote for my son’s teacher. Another mom organized a multitude of gifts for next week’s Teacher Appreciation Week, and I volunteered a bird themed tote since their class nickname is The Birdie Class. I …

Goodbye 2013, Goodbye RTW, Hello 2014!

Last post of the year! I’m saying goodbye to 2013, and with that I’m making a promise for 2014. Notice I said PROMISE? I do not make RESOLUTIONS. Mostly because I’m defiant by nature and don’t want to be told what to do. So… what’s my plan for 2014? Yep, no store bought clothes in 2014. I’m all signed up …

Wordle – Something Fun and Silly!

Hi world! I’ve been busy reorganizing rooms and organizing for kids going back to school yesterday. Whew, totally exhausted! Mimi turned 10 last week, and she got her own room for her birthday, so we’ve turned about everything upside down here! So here’s a little fun thing I found today.

Upcycled Teeshirt Striped Skirt

Here’s my third and final Summer Of No Pants #SONP2013 entry! An Upcycled Teeshirt Striped Skirt. I took two ten(ish) year old tees I didn’t wear anymore because the style was too short and boxy, and turned them into one skirt I can wear all summer! This was easy, although slightly tedious to make all those seams. Here’s how I did …

A costume that wasn’t for Halloween

Here’s my semi-recap on the costume I made in October that had nothing to do with Halloween! I did start doing a spookyish costume for me that I could potentially use this 31st if I get it done. But all the kids’ costumes were purchased this year. Bad designer! Oh well. So as I mentioned, my friend Linda Bair of …
