Pattern Review: Free Pajama Party Pants

My oldest son needed new warm pajamas so I decided to make some and gift them for Christmas.  As I mentioned in my review of 11th Hour Gear, my go-to paper pattern wasn’t the right size for him.  4 sizes too small.  I really liked that pattern because it had separate front and back pieces instead of one that wrapped around from back to front.  I loved the slimmer fit.  I’ve heard wonderful things about Peek-a-boo Patterns so I decided to download the free Pajama Party Pants and sew them up for my son.     Fit Turns out,...

Originally posted Friday, November 4, 2016 When the Hibernis Cowl Shirt by Sofilantjes was released at the beginning of this year, I bought it-despite the fact that I hadn’t sewn up any of the patterns I bought during Black Friday sales.  (I blame the Broken Sewing Machine, pattern tests, and house selling…)  I bought it because I thought the pockets were so unique and interesting, I liked the princess seam blocking, and I wanted another cowl pattern to compare to the cowl of the Autumn Grace pattern I tested.  And also because the designer ran a contest with the chance...

Pokemon Halloween Costumes

Two years ago my family had epic Halloween costumes.  Everyone had a costume, they were all themed (pokemon), and some of us even sprayed our hair different colors. It was awesome. And I didn’t take a single picture.  Even though we won a prize for best costumes at a party.  Lame. Nut#1 still loves Pokemon and is wearing his Ash costume for the third year in a row.  (Sweet! His costume was already done.)  Pigg#3 has followed his brother’s lead and wore the same Pikachu costume two years in a row.  But this year he decided to branch out...
