How to Make an Oshawott Costume

Recently, a reader asked me for more details about the Oshawott Halloween Costume I made two years ago.  Looks like I dropped the ball and never shared details about what I used to make the costume.  So here are some details two years later.  *sigh* I used the Love Notions Moto Maxx Pants for the bottoms and the Sofilantes Hibernis Cowl Shirt for the top. I adjusted the Hibernis for a straight fit instead of a slim feminine fit. I have other shirt patterns with a more unisex fit, but none of them were printed at the time.  The...

Reef Walker Pocket Hack

Comfy shorts have been on my to-sew list for months.  Spring and summer sneak up on me so fast even as I can’t wait for the warm weather to arrive.  Plus, we live in a really warm place and pretty much wear shorts all the time these days.  After weeks of requests, I finally got these new shorts made and even make a pocket hack for some extra variety.  They were an immediate win with the kids, which makes me happy! I decided to make Reef Walker shorts since we live 20 minutes from the beach (yes I am...

Recently my son has been very diligent about combing his hair nicely each day and last winter complained about things messing up his hair.  So I signed up for the zip-up version of the Summit Peak Hoodie. Flat Pattern The sleeves for this hoodie are not cut on the fold....

Updated Dill Pickles Tee Review

Back in August I reviewed the Dill Pickles Tee as part of the Pickle Toes Pattern Back to School Blog Tour.  You can read that review here.  Now that the Dill Pickles Tee is updated, I’m reviewing the pattern again!  The updated Dill Pickles Tee has some different features than the original, but I’ll try to review it in the same format as my original review. This time I only sewed one version for Nut#1 because the relaxed versions I made last time had the most problems.  And I decided to make a short sleeve version so I could...
