Sew in Tune

Uptown Funk Tee

Today I'm posting for the Sew In Tune series. It's hosted by Boy, Oh Boy, Oh Boy! and Melly Sews. It's a week filled with outfits inspired by music. I always love to see what everyone creates...such varied inspiration! I had no trouble picking a song. Uptown Funk by Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars is Roman's favourite song and we have to listen to it several times a day. He loves to have dance   << Continue Reading >>

Kids Clothes Week is Coming!


Kids Clothes Week is on again next week! I am in love with the theme too....UPCYCLING! I love upcycling for so many reasons, it's economical, it's great for the environment, it lets you breathe new life into old items, it lets you reinvent your mistakes, and it can save you time too as I will often re-use the hems, necklines or pockets where possible. There are a heap of projects on the blog to   << Continue Reading >>

Titchy Threads: Rowan Tee

Rowan Tee

Who doesn't love options?! The Rowan Tee, which is the latest sewing pattern from Titchy Threads has a lot...A LOT! 144 combinations to be exact! You can make it long sleeve, short sleeve, with cuffs or hems, add a hoodie, pocket or some stripe accents. I went pretty basic with this one. The warm weather is coming, so a short sleeve tee was a must. I used an old tshirt of hubby's and some   << Continue Reading >>

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 >>

Sew Fab – Long Beach Boardies


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 is my last make from the Sew Fab Pattern Bundle and I've been so impressed with each of the patterns I have used. This pattern is the Terra's Treasures Long Beach Board Shorts. It's a great pattern with an awesome size range (3-6mo - 14yr)   << Continue Reading >>

Sew Fab – Boys Cupcake Top


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 >>

Small Fry Skinny Jeans


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 >>

Boys Summer Pyjamas


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 >>
