Hi everyone. Today is day one of the Thread Faction SS2016 Blog tour and I am so excited to send you off to check out everyone’s makes. But I didn’t want to hold a blog tour and not get in on any of the fun, so you will be getting my two cents worth throughout…
Swimwear is one of those things that is so much less expensive to make than to buy, and once you get the hang of it, it is not nearly as scary as it seems.
I know knits can be a bit tricky for beginners, so in a bid to help you guys get the best results possible, I have been testing out some techniques and equipment for sewing knits with your home sewing machine.
Just a quick post today to round out my crazy series on turning socks into pants for babies.
have been asked a few times lately if it is possible to make our Pirate Pants Pattern or our Free baby harem pants pattern with the seam at the side of the leg in stead of the center front and back.

(if your little is bigger than 6 months, check out our P is for Pirate Pants pattern, it is a one-size grow-with-me pattern that fits from around 6 months to four years-ish)
I was in search of some cute knit fabrics to sew up samples of an upcoming free pattern release (stay tuned in the next week or so for that one), my local fabric store had nothing, and being the incredibly impatient woman that I am, I decided to print some. I absolutely love the…
I was so impressed with results of my Baby Legwarmers in 5 minutes for $3.50 project that I got to thinking about all those lovely stripy and patterned socks and how stretchy and forgiving they were to sew.
