Quick and Easy Christmas Gifts for Keeping You Warm From Your Head to Your Toes

Suede slippers, winter warmers, and twisty twirly scar

It seems like lots of people in the blog-iverse are sharing their holiday gift guides right now, and I figured we should too. I personally love getting, and giving handmade gifts. However, as we all know, this is a busy time of year. I don’t know about you, but I don’t have hours on end to devote to making handmade gifts for everyone on my list. So I’m sharing three of my patterns that make great, quick gifts. Any of these projects can be finished in about four hours from start to finish. With the weather getting colder, don’t forget to make a gift for yourself too! Let’s get started!...

Halloween Shirts & Skirts

Halloween is just around the corner guys!!! I’m doing my best to get ready before the actual holiday this year, but it’s a bit difficult to get anything done with 3 littles running around!!! I’ve been creating some new Halloween decor and clothing, and playing around with my Silhouette Cameo in the process. So in this post I’m going to be highlighting using a Silhouette Cameo and Heat Transfer Vinyl to make some cute Halloween shirts! I did designs for you and your kiddos! Look at all these cute kids! 3 are mine and 3 I “borrowed” from a good friend to help me model the shirts. I put together...

Winter Warmers

Sheila using the hat she designed and created

As I travel around the United States for my ‘real job’ with Hewlett-Packard OR just for fun when I visit my kids or my adorable grandkids OR when I am just exploring new places – I am always on the lookout for ideas we could use for new patterns. I found some really soft, super warm and fuzzy hats, scarves and wrist warmers – they were priced at $40 to $50 for each piece – so I thought – why not try to make my own? They were a bit tricky to figure out – and very difficult to describe in words – but I tried – you will find...

Looking Pretty in Ruffles

We discoved a fun and easy way to make a beautiful skirt that only looks complicated! We used Ruffle Fabric(™) which is a pre-ruffled knit fabric. It comes in lots of varieties from a small lightweight ruffle, to a heavier wider ruffle, to a varigated ruffle that goes from small to wide, as well as stretch lace fabrics. These fabrics allow you to make a skirt in a flash that looks like it took forever, but it is really a sinch! You can get this awesome fabric on the Ruffle Fabric website. All of the pictures above were made using different types of ruffle fabric and our new patterns. We...

Kid’s Pocket Scarf

Hello there! As you may have noticed, we aren’t the best about updating this blog. We are hoping to be better about putting things up here. In that spirit, we are going to start off this new attention to our blog with a bang. Or, more accurately, with a free pattern.

However, it is stinkin’ adorable and we are excited to share it with all of you. This cute pattern comes to you from the mind of Sheila. We...
