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!

In like a lion…out like a lamb?  I know the last few days have brought really dangerous and devastating weather to parts of the United States — I hope this adage holds true and that better, calmer weather is on the way.

As the weather continues to turn and spring makes it’s guaranteed appearance, it’s time to celebrate the warmer season with some super cute skirts for the little girls in your life.

This Cotton Candy Skirt from Simple Simon & Co. is just the thing to welcome beautiful, sunny weather!

I seem to be drawn to spring/summer stuff right now!  I don’t know if this weirdly warm weather has tricked my brain into thinking it’s further ahead in the year than it is, or if I’m just ready for nicer weather to be here.  Nothing against winter — as strange as it sounds, I absolutely love the season — but it’s harder to deal with nasty weather when you have small children.

But I digress…

Today’s tutorial is the super cute Pillowcase Nightgown featured over at iCandy Handmade.

Pillowcase Nightgown Tutorial


Last summer, my five year old started to finally want to wear nightgowns.  Truthfully, I think it’s because they feel more princess-like than standard pj pants and a top.  No matter the case it will be fun to make her some of these nightgowns for use this summer!

Last week’s tutorials were fun (when you come across it, boy stuff is so adorable!) but we’re back to cute little girl sewing stuff today!

This tutorial by Simple Simon &Co would be the perfect project to make the transition into warmer weather.  That time where it’s not quite warm enough to go without a jacket, but after a LONG winter the kids are tired of buttoning up.

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.

Although we have yet to see much snow in our area, our winter temps have certainly made their chilly presence known.  When I’m outside playing I’m a huge fan of toasty gloves and mittens but when driving I dislike the feel of the material on the steering wheel.

With scraps upon scraps of fleece fabric here in my stash I was super excited to receive this tutorial in my inbox the other day — my hope is to sneak this project in somewhere over the weekend!

With spring coming our way in a short(ish) amount of time, my thoughts have turned to warm weather tops in super cute prints.  As much as I love winter I get tired of the monotony that comes with heavy sweaters and layers and layers of clothes.

So this adorable pleated top by Jessica over at Craftiness is Not Optional is the perfect project to get you ready for warmer weather!

The tree is down, decorations are put away and the dust of holiday chaos is beginning to settle. With that said it’s the perfect (down)time to start working on projects for Valentine’s Day!

These cute zippered pouches would make great gifts for the favorite people in your life.  They’re even the perfect size to fill with conversation hearts!
