Double layered skirt tutorial, no pattern needed.

So, I thought I would share a tutorial I used to make these gorgeous skirts for my baby girl that I absolutely adore and so does she (Kakazi).

I made these skirts a little while ago and never got to post them, so I thought I would do that and also share the tutorial I used to make them. Continue reading


How to sew stretch fabric with a sewing machine


A couple of months ago, I was planning a trip to Copenhagen and saw an opportunity to check out new fabric stores and look for a fresh wave of inspiration.

Of first birthdays and stuff :)

I hope at this point I’m not speaking to myself as it been a while since I have blogged or sewn anything. In case you haven’t heard, my Kakazi turned ONE last Friday 🙂  I am so proud of the little lady she is becoming, I knew I was going to find a way to celebrate her first birthday, regardless of what else was going on in our lives. I figured it would also be a great way to ease my way back into making something as I planned to DIY at least her birthday decorations. I had already decided we were going to celebrate at home (next post is about home)
