The Scooter Buddy

Scooter Buddy

I've been wanting to make a little bag to go on Roman's scooter for ages, so when Natalie from Sew Outnumbered asked me to join the tour for her new tutorial, it was an easy yes! Roman is always carrying trains or crayons or pegs (why?!) or his Peter Rabbit and he was very excited when I told him he'd be able to carry stuff around on the scooter now. The tutorial has you cut your three main   << Continue Reading >>

Oh, how I love these! You can't go wrong with some 'business in the front, party in the back' clothes for kids. These shorts are certainly a bit of fun!

This was my first make from the Sew Fab Bundle. Winter has definitely arrived and you know how kids and a change of season go...nothing ever fits. When I first opened the Sew Fab Bundle, I knew this was a must make! Tees are quick wins for me. Easy to sew, use little fabric and get lots of use. The pattern is The Cupcake Top (unisex) by Sewing Mama RaeAnna. This is a nice quick sew and I love   << Continue Reading >>

Today I'm showing you my second pair of Small Fry Skinny Jeans...well, Roman's second pair. I first used this pattern here as part of the sew-along of the free 2T pattern. The fit is so perfect I jumped at the chance to join the tour and make Roman a pair in the next size. I love the name of this pattern! So much so, that I thought it was good enough to embroider on the back pocket. I'm so   << Continue Reading >>

It feels like summer is on it's way out already, so I think I got these finished just in time! My lovely sponsors at Sew Creative Supplies provided the fabric and thread for this project. The fabric is Michael Miller Vintage Fire Trucks. Roman picked it out and I was a little surprised when it arrived as the fire engines are a lot bigger than I was expecting! My own fault for not looking at the   << Continue Reading >>

I first discovered Celina's blog when I came across this tutorial on Pinterest. I've had the idea pinned for such a long time and when Laura asked me 'What Would Celina Do?', I knew straight away that I wanted to do some Lego stamping for my project. This is such a simple and effective project and I'm so pleased with the result! I didn't have a foam brush, so just ripped the corner off a   << Continue Reading >>

Things for Girls: Roly Poly Pinafore

It's nice to do a bit of girl sewing for a change. Today I'm sharing a pinafore I made for my niece using the Roly Poly Pinafore Pattern by Imagine Gnats. This is such a quick pattern to put together, and the result is so cute!   My sewing machine and I have been having a bit of a disagreement over buttonholes, so I skipped buttons and added some snaps instead. The snaps mean it's reversible   << Continue Reading >>

I was very excited to be asked to join the Cushion for Christmas blog hop. The series is full of great ideas for cushions you can make in less than a day...perfect for gifting. With so many talented ladies on board, especially with crazy awesome quilting skills (which I do not have) I wanted to do something a bit different and fun, so I made a Pyjama Eating Monster Cushion. This monster is   << Continue Reading >>
