Last few makes of 2015!

I know, I know… it’s halfway through January already. But I’m claiming these as 2015 because they were mostly finished in December. :) First up, a little Star Wars goodness!   I just couldn’t resist this fabric from Knitorious Fabrics (this was my first exposure to custom knit prints other than Spoonflower… it’s very dangerous territory!) so I made some leggings for myself and PJ pants for the guy. Mine were done minus hemming in time to go see the new Star Wars on Christmas Eve. His I completed after we got home from the movie and dinner in time to wrap up for Christmas morning :) Naturally, I used my go-to Matilda Leggings for these (unfortunately they have fully switched over to kid patterns only… which are adorable of course but it’s sad for their women’s patterns which have disappeared – so glad I downloaded all of them way back when! ;)  I went with my usual adjustments (added 1/2″ to the rise and sized down on the waistband). I also doubled the waistband …

Syrah Skirt, Plantain Tee, Plantain Tank, So Zo Undies, & Puppy PJ Pants!

DEER & DOE PLANTAIN TEE This tee is everywhere and I finally understand why! I’ve had the pattern downloaded for a while but haven’t gotten around to making it till now. The RTW white tee I have in my closet right now is looking pretty old and sad so I desperately needed a replacement :)… this one fit the bill perfectly! The fabric is a cotton spandex blend knit from Girl Charlee. Same one I used …

Birthdays and PJ Pants

Happy Birthday to two of my favorite people in the whole wide world! Bethany yesterday and Danny tomorrow! Bethany is finally old with me… and Danny is basically ancient… he’s turning the big 3-0! :) We were supposed to go down to Ft Collins yesterday for a cooking class… but this rain has been so insane the past few days… the highway was closed! Of course we didn’t look before we left, thinking for sure it would be open (yesterday morning was actually sunny for a while), but then we reached the flashing lights and barricade and had to turn around :/ Then we had plans to go to dinner with my pharmacy people (the guys were planning a shrimp-eating contest at Red Lobster)… but the weather killed that too. And of course we didn’t realize that one until we got there either. We walked in, said what party we were looking for… the girl wasn’t sure so we walked around to find them… once we didn’t find them I checked my phone… sure enough, …
