A Frozen Halloween!

Happy Daylight Saving today! (LOL… “they call it Arizona” “it’s NOT plural!”… that video cracks me up – if you haven’t seen it take a minute and click the link; it’ll be worth your time). Okay, so it wasn’t frozen at all… it was actually pretty hot yesterday (poor little Olaf was melting!)… but here’s how the costumes turned out! :) Olaf Patterns: Peek-a-Boo Pattern Shop Snowman Costume (Free Pattern! but also just learned they sell fabric… have you seen their knit panels… so cute!), Go To Baby Leggings (Free Pattern!), Dylan Onesie Patten (also made here; I added an extra panel of interfacing-reinforced fabric on the inside under the snaps this time and it was a lot easier; snaps are definitely the way to go – last time I made the one with velcro and I think it was scratching his legs too much), Fleece Hat Pattern from Tracy’s Treasury (Free Pattern! — I lengthened the ear flaps and added velcro for the chin strap). Fabric: Organic Cotton Stretch French Terry from Cali Fabrics for the onesie …

Monday Sunday Sew Love

Well maybe one of these days I’ll get my days straight! :) So here’s what’s on my sewing table right now… I’m completely in love with this fabric, but I’m about halfway through and I’m not sure it was a good fabric-pattern match. :/ We’ll see how it finishes up… Exciting sewing tidbit! I won one of the prize packs from the Crazy Dog Lady Sewing Challenge! Wahoo! The winners were completely random, but I will take it! :) See all of the makes here and here. They are super impressive! So here’s the real reason we’re here: Lovely x 4!

Crazy Dog Lady? Maybe… just a little…

 Muahaha… yes, I couldn’t resist. How could I not join in on this challenge!? I had a vision in my head of puppy running leggings, but couldn’t find any fabric that fit what I was imagining. Plus, there aren’t many dog prints out there that look quite as adorable as my little mutt babies… sooo… in came Spoonflower… I used the same photo that I used for our Christmas Card this past year. I tried adding a few designs but ultimately decided to go with plain white. Gotta work on my pattern repeats if I want to try this fabric design thing again. I used the Sloan Leggings pattern from Hey June (view B, tall, 3/4 length). I was drawn to this pattern because of the design – and the long inseam option, of course!  I used my awesome Spoonflower Modern Jersey fabric and this black Tricot Satin Matte Nylon Spandex Knit from Girl Charlee. My puppy fabric turned out to be a little more see-through than I was imagining, but it still worked well enough. …
