Saturday Pattern Sharing 3/24/12

Today’s pattern is a no-sew, scrap-busting, easy to put together piece that would be perfect for your little man to wear on Easter Sunday!  Or any day of the week if he’s so inclined.  😉

I don’t think my girls would wear these, nor would my 35-year old husband.  Maybe I could convince one of my dogs to model for me.  Yeah, you’re right, probably not.  It certainly makes me wish there was a little boy I could make some for!

Anyway…today’s super cute Pattern Sharing is this little man bow tie tutorial by Lindsey over at the The Pleated Poppy.  Thanks, Lindsey for such a cute tutorial!

Happy Sewing!

Chaos in the Studio

It’s been a crazy week around here!  My husband is out of town for the week, which always seems to complicate things.  But when combined with numerous appointments, visit with friends, a poorly-napping toddler and more than a handful of open shop orders I feel like the week has flown by in a whirlwind.

One of my highest priority items this week was finishing these super cute baby blankets for a neighbor. She’s hoping that baby makes an appearance at any time so I knew they needed to be done immediately.

I am really please with how they turned out — hopefully she feels the same way!  

This isn’t the only cuteness to come out of the studio this week. I’ll have some more sneak peaks to show in a little bit.  And don’t forget to watch tomorrow for another fun Friday DeStash!

Happy Sewing!

Saturday Pattern Sharing 1/28/12

Since our household is heavy on the estrogen (at least in terms of those who stand on 2 legs), little boy patterns are more few and far between.  But in celebration of a bunch of little boys being born to friends I figured it was time to dig through the internet and find a couple of really cute boy patterns for today!

First up, these absolutely, so stinkin’ cute, itty bitty boxer briefs by Sabra over at Sew a Straight Line

Second is the super cool boys belt over at The Mother Huddle

Stuff like this makes me yearn for some boys, or even *a* little boy, in the house.  For some reason I doubt my husband would appreciate me making him boxer brief with cute designs on them.

Happy sewing!
