Happy Kids

I always thought that once my kids started getting older they wouldn’t want homemade stuff as much.  Maybe that will be true in a few more years but my seven-year old still beams when I make him something.  This week I stitched up four Crayon Folio’s and all three of my big kids loved them.  I’ll make one for the littlest dude when he learns not to color on everything!

IMG_6625The Crayon Folio pattern is by Gingercake and it’s also a part of the Sew Fab Bundle happening for just a couple of more days.

IMG_6627 IMG_6623 Crayon FolioI honestly don’t know why I’ve never sewn a crayon or art folio before.  They are all over the place and they make so much sense!  As soon as I saw this pattern as part of the Sew Fab Bundle I knew I would make it.  In the last year my kids have gotten so much more into drawing and coloring and I’m all over any kind of easy to take along item to keep them entertained during appointments, swimming lessons, etc.

I made a woodland themed one for my boys.  They both love to draw pictures of birds, specifically any kind of birds of prey so they’ve all ready taken them outside looking for animals to draw.

If you’ve never sewn with a PDF pattern before, let me tell you how great it is! After downloading your pattern, you will print out the pattern itself, creating pattern tiles, if you will. Simply tape the tiles together to create the full pattern! At that point you can cut out the size that you need and pin the paper pattern directly to your fabric, or you can trace the pattern size that you need onto sewing paper or tracing paper and cut it out, saving the paper pattern for later when you need to sew another size. PDF patterns are so convenient because you can print them out as many times as you need!

Long Beach Shorts

Long Beach ShortsA couple of weeks ago I pulled out my older boys’ summer clothes only to realize that ninety percent of their shorts are now too small.  Thankfully shorts are a really quick and easy sew and the Long Beach Shorts from Terra’s Treasures are no exception.

Long Beach Shorts Long Beach ShortsI love the flat front of these and the piping on the back is a really great detail.  Brayer loves them and Kaed is patiently waiting for a pair for himself.

I used some fabric I picked up years ago, literally.  I had always planned to make shorts out of it but never got around to it.  When I saw the Long Beach Shorts pattern I knew it was time to cut into it.IMG_6360 IMG_6356 Long Beach ShortsThe Long Beach Shorts are a part of the Sew Fab Pattern Bundle.

Sew Fab Sewing! Figgy’s Seraphic Pant

Seraphic PantOne of my favorite things about doing the Sew Fab Sale is getting the chance to sew up a bunch of the patterns from the other designers.  This year is no exception and first up I made my girl a pair of Seraphic Pants.

Seraphic PantI love just about anything by Shelly of Figgy’s and I’ve made several of her patterns so I knew I was in for another great sew.

Seraphic PantAra needed pants for next fall so I made these in a size too big for her, which is possibly more likely a couple of sizes too large but she loves them just the way they are and I doubt I’ll get a chance to pack them away until she grows a bit.

Seraphic PantI used a nice thick knit fabric I bought from fabric.com ages ago.  I’ve been hoarding them for something special and these pants seemed like just the project.
