CKC Huxley's - A Fun Little Romper for All Seasons!

I LOVE rompers. Everybody knows that. I just can't get over how cute little boys look in them. So, I was thrilled to have the opportunity to test this little pattern in the summer, and even more thrilled when Kristen decided to add pants to the pattern for the fall!

CKC Huxley's

Perfect for Any Season: 

This pattern is an easy sew, perfect for woven fabrics. It can be used in the spring or summer using either the high-cut cut lines (see those cute little chubby legs) or using the shorts length cut lines. It's perfect in the fall and winter as pants. 

It's Reversible!

The pattern is completely reversible! You can use two different fun prints to have two completely different outfits in one. The sewing time of making one romper, but you have two different looks. I love this!

It's Perfect for Embellishment:

The front and back are both one solid piece with only side seams. There is no center front seam, no seam attaching the bodice to the pants. This makes it perfect for large appliques, vinyl designs, or monograms. 

It's Fast:

You'll have two front pieces (main and lining), two back pieces (main and lining), shoulder snaps, and ankle elastics. It's really a super fast sew! It goes together so quickly and easily, you'll want to make several! 

Super Adorable

Just look at how cute! Can you really resist?? 😍😍 Go on, grab it here this week while it is on sale! 

Thank you so much for reading this post! 💓

I'd love for you to come follow me on Pinterest and Instagram as well!!

Fabulous and FREE! The Neck Tie Top by Winter Wear Designs

I love free patterns, especially when they're by a designer that I already know and love. When Suzanne with Winter Wear Designs drafted this pattern, I was excited! I have not been very exciting with my wardrobe choices in the past - most of my shirts were just basic tees. Solid tees are still nice to have, but it's so much fun to wear something different. Lately I've been LOVING all the fun prints!

I KNEW I wanted to test this pattern, and as soon as I finished sewing it, it became my new favorite shirt. Like... I've been wearing it ALL THE TIME. I really need to make another one!

This is the new free Neck Tie Top by Winter Wear Designs. Isn't it great?

Let me tell you about it!

This top is a semi-fitted tee. You have the options of a solid front or a color blocked front. I color-blocked the front top to be the same fabric as my neckband tie.  The sleeve is a slim poet style sleeve with a cuff. You can either finish the bottom with a band or a simple hem.

It is inte…

Fun, Fast, and Free - Fresh Looks for Summer!

When I first saw the information about the "Boys in Summer" Blog Tour hosted by Made for Little Gents, I knew I wanted to participate! My boys are the reason I started sewing! I HAD to participate.

But, what would I sew? I contemplated what I might make for a couple of weeks, and then it hit me... it would be super fun to highlight a couple of great freebies! EVERYONE loves free stuff. Free patterns are a great way to try a new designer out before making a purchase, they're perfect for adding some variety to your pattern stash without spending money, and they're just super fun... because more patterns = more stuff you get to make. 😁
So the freebies I'm going to talk to you about today are from Peek-a-boo Pattern Shop. I love Peek-a-boo patterns. I've made a few of them for my boys and have tested a few as well. I feel like the instructions are mostly geared towards beginners, so any skill level can be successful with her patterns. I've really enjoyed the…

Making an Applique

How I Make an Applique
So... I have a combination sewing/ embroidery machine. Obviously, I can use it for adding an applique to things, however, I mostly add appliques to my kids' clothes. Daniel is rapidly growing, but unfortunately my 4"x4" hoop size is not. At some point, I'd like to upgrade to a machine with a larger hoop size, but until then, the designs are looking smaller and smaller on his clothes. My solution: make my own appliques!

I've also been frustrated at times, not wanting to get everything out to convert my machine, not being able to find a design quite like I had envisioned, and obviously, not being able to stitch larger designs.

So, several weeks back, I set out to make my own applique design for the first time. Daniel had requested a dinosaur shirt for his birthday. I didn't want a tiny dinosaur in the middle of a shirt. And, I wanted a dinosaur with balloons. That's specific. I don't have software for embroidery, and it was EXTREM…
