Handmade Pokemon Costumes

Halloween Costumes are not my favorite things to make.  But I made my kids some Pokemon Costumes and they are happy and excited to be able to wear them after Halloween too!  I tried to take some pictures yesterday before trick or treating and it was a bit crazy. So not super great pictures… Here we have Fennekin, complete with a giant tail. And here is Teddiursa, with a cute little tail and floppy ears. I used the Summit Peak Hoodie from New Horizons Designs to make the shirts for both Pokemon costumes.  I color blocked the hood to...

Summit Peak Hoodie

Nut#1 LIVES in hoodies during the winter.  He changes his shirt every day, but wears a zip up hoodie over top constantly.  So I jumped at the chance to test the New Horizon Designs Summit Peak Hoodie.  The hoodie came together really well and I have many more planned. 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...

Pattern Test: New Horizons Designs Streamline Tee

I have eyed the Streamline Tee by New Horizons for quite some time, but haven’t actually bought it because the sizing was too small to fit my oldest son!  So when Terra announced testing to update the Streamline Tee and extend the sizes, I jumped to test the pattern.  And now my son has several long sleeve shirts to wear this winter! The Streamline Tee is a unisex raglan for kids sized 6 mo. to 16.  That’s a huge size range and now fits my oldest son.  Plus, I can fit it too!  I already have two women’s raglan...

Alpine Pants for Back to School

Nut#3 rarely actually needs new clothes because he gets Nut#1’s hand-me downs.  However, he busted out the knees of his pants last winter-partly because they were already worn thin from Nut#1!  And Nut#3 hasn’t quite grown enough to fit the next size up pants.  Which means I got to make Nut#3 some Alpine Pants-and he has new, cool pants for heading the school and jumping around the playground and school! Okay, technically the pattern is called the Alpine Shorts and Trousers, but I can’t stop thinking of Wallace and Grommet overtime I say trousers.  So I’m calling them the...
