Spring Snow

You can vote for your favorite “greenery” inspired design HERE at Project Run and Play. The challenge for Project Run and Play this week is “greenery” which is Pantone’s color of the year. It is symbolic of spring, rejuvenation, and reconnecting with nature. We are in the middle of a potentially record-breaking blizzard in PA today. I was having a hard time connecting with the theme and figuring out how to take some pictures of…

Ombre Dyed July 4th Skirts

I haven’t been sewing lately, but I have had this idea in my head for awhile to make ombre dyed skirts for the girls and July 4th was as good of a reason as any to try it out. I had some knit in a tote that was given to me about 9 years ago (back when I was still scared of sewing with anything but quilting cotton). So, this project only cost me about…

Turtleneck to Maxi Skirt Tutorial

This one has been a long time coming! I finally got some cute pics of my daughter in her maxi skirt so that I could finish up this post!  Last spring, when I was on my maxi skirt sewing kick, my 5yo had requested a RED one. Well, I thought I would just pick some fabric up at a nearby Walmart, but they no longer carry ANY knit at that store! 🙁 So, I wandered…

Easy Doll Maxi Skirt Tutorial

Well, this tutorial has been a long time coming!  I made these when I went on the crazy, maxi skirt sewing marathon session a few months ago.   I tell you what- since I am conquering this whole “fear of knit” thing, these were just the easiest things to sew.  The hard part… sewing shirts to match, finding a spray bottle and the “official” sparkly hair pick (at the same time), and untangling that awful…

Maxi Skirts Galore!

A few weeks ago I was on a maxi skirt sewing frenzy… Please excuse my modeling skills in the following pictures. 🙂 As you can see, one of my daughters, however, thinks she is QUITE the little model. Sometimes she overdoes it, though. For the girls’ pink and blue skirts I used THIS tutorial, but the waist needs to be an inch or so smaller than the actual measurement (these are little girls without womanly hips…

Cozy Knit Maternity Skirt

Last week I whipped up this skirt for myself. Yes, I sewed something for myself. That was not a typo.  I am not usually comfortable having my picture taken, but for my loyal readers I will make this sacrifice.  🙂  I walked up to the edge of the fields with my oldest daughter and gave her the camera.    She did a fantastic job! Oh, and before you think that belly is so adorable, let…

Easter Sewing Part 4

My skirt is the last in the series… I wanted and A-line, and I loved the contrast of plain white against the fabric in the other skirts, so I wanted to trim with white. I used a pattern, sort of- because I made it myself! I took a skirt I already have and took the measurements of the bottom width and the length of the skirt and my waist. Then I took a piece of…
