Hello World!

We’re still around and costuming! We’ve definitely slowed down a lot though with life getting busy and some of us having kids (holy cow), but we’re all still active and you’ll see updates here and there.

baby moogle costume
I love Halloween because it means I can dress up my brood. This year’s theme was supposed to be Final Fantasy with the Grub as a moogle and the Larva as a white mage. I got as far as making the moogle costume, but then I decided that we needed to do a theme as an entire family. The problem with that decision is that I no longer have a Final Fantasy costume and making new adult costumes is a lot more work than making kid costumes. Marcus and I do, however, both have Avatar: The Last Airbender costumes, so now I’m in middle of making new Avatar costumes for the kids. In the meantime, I decided to snap some photos of the Grub in her moogle costume. I use Simplicity 1767 as a base. I’ve used this pattern a few times and I always make a few changes. I make the sleeves [...]

bangle bag
I love jade, and if I wasn’t spending all my extra money on pretty fabrics, I’d probably be spending it on on jade jewelry. I’m part of a forum for ladies who love jade and I’ve gotten to be good friends with a few of the members. A bunch of them got together and got me a gift when the Grub was born and it was the sweetest thing ever! It’s so amazing how the internet can bring people together, and it is awesome. =D I’m on a roll with the thank you gifts so for my dear jade sisters, I wanted to make some bangle bags for them to carry their bangles when traveling. I used this bag tutorial by KAU UZÊDA and made some small modifications. I needed to make 3 bags so I knew I was going to need a fair bit of fabric. I had just purchased a [...]

I made Hello Kitty dresses for my twin toddlers for their 2nd birthday. I used Sanrio Hello Kitty fabric from Kokka Japan in pink and lavender and some red floral dot stash fabric as an accent. I used Simplicity 1433 as the pattern, but I left the tulle off and used some stash lace instead. All photos below by Amanda Rynda Photography! [...]

knitting needle roll
Sewing with a newborn attached to you 24-7 hasn’t been easy but I’ve been making it work. I have mastered the art of sewing one handed while holding the Grub on a boppy pillow. Well, as long as it’s sewing in straight lines… =D One of my recent projects is a thank you gift for my obgyn. I know she likes to knit, so I thought a Knitting needle roll would be perfect. Unfortunately I am not a knitter so I didn’t really have any idea what a knitter would need. Thankfully there are some wonderful tutorials out there for knitting needle rolls. I decided to use the one from Stitch Parade and to make the cover a quilted patchwork piece. I’m very fond of this design with the rows of patchwork diamonds and I’ve used it for other bags. The cover fabric is Marie Antoinette By Deborah Edwards. For the inside, [...]
