Snuggly Rag Quilt and Harem Pants

My brother’s wife had a boy right before we moved states.  Her fourth boy.  When her third was born, I was practical and asked what she needed. But with this fourth boy I threw practicality out the door.  She HAD to have everything she NEEDED but I wanted to give her something new whether or not she needed it.  So I made her a snuggly rag quilt and baby minecraft outfit. Years ago while Nut#2 hung out in my belly, this same sister in law made me a rag quilt from cute pink, purple, and yellow quilting cotton prints....

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,...
