Not the edible kind though but the cupcake top a design from sewing mama raeanna. It’s a sweet simple unisex knit t-shirt with a kangaroo pocket and some ruffles for the girls if you want. I made one with ruffles in size 3 for Anita and a size 5 for Viktor without the ruffles of course. They both love their new t-shirts especially the pocket.
A few weeks ago I became a Pattern Member of the Sewing Rabbit. You get 3 patterns each month and it’s a great community to get to know other people with sewing addiction and share your projects. This first month we got the cool Knight Hoodie, the practical Toiletry Travel Bag and the sweet Madeline Dress.
I wish I could sew and blog about it all the time. But with work, 2 kiddos and 2 teenagers, keeping the house in a somewhat decent state and always finding something to remodel in our home, now it’s the main bathroom, I’m lacking hours in the day! I try to get some sewing done every week, specially when my husband is away for work then I sew every night after I put the little ones to bed. I had big plans to participate in the KCW and I do have some pieces done but haven’t had time to blog about them.
Now I’m going to share with you to sweaters I made one for Viktor and one for Anita, I used the recess raglan pattern from see kate sew. It was super fun and fast to sew! I will use this pattern again for sure! Now I just have to stock up on some more cute knits as my fabric stash isn’t that big yet and I’m loving using my new serger.
Here goes! I think it is kind of scary and intimidating to write a blog, but I’m going to try and see how it goes.
For about six months ago or so I started my sewing journey. I have found some amazing bloggers out there whom I’ve been stalking while trying to learn as much as I can from their fabulous blogs.
It all started when I came a cross a pin on Pinterest to a tutorial on how to make a bubble dress posted by straight-grain.com I tried to follow it but the bodice came out way too small for my little girl. But boy did I get excited when I read that An, who writes that blog, was working on a real pattern for the bubble dress so I waited patiently and bought the pattern as soon as she released it and that became the first piece of usable clothing I have ever made.
