Copenhagen, inspiration and bad photos

❤ ❤ Copenhagen getting ready for Xmas

It’s been a long time, eh? I’ll just get to it. A little while ago, after a rough couple of months, I thought to myself, f*#k it, I’m going somewhere..anywhere!” I decided it was time to get away from all the things that were (and still kind of are) keeping me from making things and blogging and generally staying sane.

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)

City gym shorts from The Purl Bee

I know I’m a little late to this party, but I have come to accept most projects I want to work on have already been around a while, and I have been lusting after them the entire time. So like I said, anything and everything that inspires me, or I’m drawn to, I’m going to try. Anyway, remember all that bias tape I made? Perfect for these cute shorts from The Purl Bee, the awesome thing about this project is that not only is this a free pattern, it comes in different sizes for BOTH adults and kids! How generous is that? Thank you Corrine.

Holy bias tape on a popsicle! No bias tape maker!

You know those projects you keep putting off because you don’t have all the supplies you need? Like bias tape? I do. Because it is expensive, and it does not always work for the fabrics I have on hand, especially if they (bias tape and fabric) were bought in different stores. And there are so many tutorials on how to make your own bias, so you just know I’m going to be all over that.  Continue reading
