I made this pillowcase back in April. I was at the fabric store, at the checkout, when I seen this fuzzy, super soft material in the marked down remnants bin. I picked it up, loved it, thought, "I could use this to make a blanket", then I realized was very likely not going to make... Continue Reading →
Hi! I have not posted in a while, I have been working on lots of projects and taking pictures, but I really need to catch up on here. One of my most recent projects has been kumihimo friendship bracelets. They are so fast and easy to make. Kumihimo is a type of braid. You can... Continue Reading →
I recently - as in, over the last two years - have started designing my own clothing patterns. Now, I want to post them here so other people can download them. Yesterday and today I have been researching like crazy. I found so many tutorials for Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator. However, these are programs that... Continue Reading →
I've been wanting to make jeans for a while now, but it has taken me a while to get started on them. First, I wanted to draft a pattern but it looked very complicated, so I decided to buy a pattern from Jalie, the same people I bought my running tights pattern from. That was... Continue Reading →
I made this hat earlier this winter. I love it so much, I wear it all the time and always get compliments. The free pattern is linked to under the picture. Try it out!
Last week I've been super busy making hoodies. I made three, one for myself and two to sell at craft fairs. The only problem is I've made the pattern myself and I have no idea how to upload it. When I figure it out I'll post it for free. I looked everywhere for a free... Continue Reading →
This shirt is called the Twist Front Top. You can find the free pattern and instructions at So Sew Easy. I made mine in a size small but I used a serger so there wan't really any seam allowance. It was a little too big for me so I took it in where I had... Continue Reading →
Today I made this long sleeve shirt. It is size small but I made it from a super stretchy knit fabric so it can fit medium or probably even large. I found the free pattern at Nap Time Creations. I think I'm going to make a bunch of these. I printed the pattern, taped the... Continue Reading →
Last night I made a beanie for a work friend. I had already made a few back in the fall for people I work with, but I had to make one more. I used this free pattern but changed up the sizes a little. Also, I added a band of fleece around the bottom so... Continue Reading →
I made this Puppy Mug Hug a few years ago. It's so cute, I thought I'd make a post about it. The instructions are at Red Heart. The only thing I would differently now, is add a single crochet border around the top and bottom because I do not like how uneven it is.
I made this cushion a few years ago. It came in a rug hooking kit. My Nan had started it, the first few rows anyway, and I finished it. Once I finished the hooking part I sewed a square of fleece to the back by hand. First I only sewed three sides so I could... Continue Reading →
Yesterday I made an infinity scarf with a hidden pocket in it. It's a great place to keep your phone or wallet or whatever. Now I need to think of a place to hide things in the summer. See below to make your own, or buy one already made here! You will need: Fabric for... Continue Reading →
