Getting Dressed for Halloween!

Honestly, Halloween was never my favorite holiday. It was just a day where some people dressed up. I don't particularly care for dressing up, so I haven't since I was a little girl. But... I have two sweet boys now. And one of them LOVES Halloween. So I'm participating in all the costume sewing, fun holiday-themed tee making, and Halloween-themed blog tours, and am actually really enjoying it! 😉

Today is my day to share on the DIY Halloween Costume Blog Tour hosted by Seams Sew Low.


Okay... so I'm actually just sharing some Halloween-Themed tees, but they're so fun! I promise to show a picture of their costumes too!

Daniel loves ghosts, pumpkins, costumes, candy, scary stuff, Halloween Decorations, everything Halloween related. I don't know where he gets it, but he loves the holiday.

So, I have happily now made him 4 costumes in his life, and for the last two years, I've made him a couple of Halloween-themed shirts. So, for my day on the DIY Halloween Costumes Blog Tour, I'm sharing Daniel's new Halloween-themed shirt!


I mentioned that I've made Daniel Halloween Themed shirts in the past, so this year, when I found this ghost fabric and Joann's, I had to get it! It has ghosts (which Daniel loves) and it's orange (which is apparently Luke's favorite color). I can make both boys happy with it! I HAD to make a third one for my little nephew too. 😉


So for their fun Halloween-themed shirts, I used the FREE Brindille and Twig Ringer Tee! I like Brindille and Twig patterns. Most are really easy, relatively fast sews. The Ringer Tee may be the fastest because it has NO HEMS! BANDS EVERYWHERE! Maybe that's why I love it! One evening of sewing = three new little shirts!

I chose to make short sleeve tee shirts because Louisiana weather is SO unpredictable this time of year. It can be hot or it can be cold. I knew that if it was cold, the kids could still wear their ghost tees layered over long sleeves. They've worn them both ways so far this month because we did have a cold front! The pictures of my little guys were made before it got cold!

Daniel cooperated so nicely for his photos in his new tee, and Luke was more interested in playing.





And Look at how cute my little nephew is in his!



A couple of weeks ago, I participated in a different Halloween themed blog tour and shared their costumes. I had so much fun making them. You should check that post out here to see my versions of Batman and Robin.  If you're interested in seeing their costumes, I'll share a photo here too. 🙂




As you can see, we're having lots of fun making costumes and holiday-themed apparel! Thank you for reading my post! 💗 I hope you've found some inspiration!

    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…

    The Hepburn Pants by Wardrobe by Me

    I've been sewing for about three and a half years, and didn't really even try pants until this year. I wanted to try sooner, but became intimidated when I saw Facebook posts about fit issues, how to adjust patterns, what kinds of fabric worked best, etc. There is so much to take into account when you want sew pants! I got my courage up earlier this year to make my first pair of jeans, and I'm glad I did, because although they are nowhere near perfect, they gave me the courage to try all sorts of new things. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, right? I think this applies to life AND sewing too! 😉
    I honestly don't have that many pairs of pants. I have pants that are YEARS old. Like from WAY before Daniel was born, and then I've got jeans and leggings I've bought since he was born, but the jeans are even getting worn out. Story of a stay at home mama. I just didn't feel like I could justify buying a lot of pants since I'm not working, and since…
