I MADE: Pyjama and Blanket Set

HELLO! I am super excited to present to you the Pyjama & Blanket set.

It's one of those projects that took me forever to finish, not because it was hard to do, just because things kept coming up and this one got pushed aside. I started it this summer and finally finished it yesterday. I feel terrible, the kids kept on asking me if their blanket was done and I still have to make Miss E's!

I received a package a while back from Rachel of

Handmade Charlotte

with some of her new amazing 


as well as some

Plaid FolkArt Paint

. I and the kids were really excited. They kept on asking me when we were going to use our gracious gift. I finally decided they needed some blankets for our vacation- this was in june! And so we decided we would use all the letters in our set and Mister M really wanted some stars.

With the stencils, we painted an alphabet border. We did most of the letters in black and the ones in Mister M's name in different colors, we broke the letters line up with some blue stars. Mister M helped me with some of the painting, he loved being involved so much.

I used a piece of sweatshirt material I had to make the blanket. I could have left it as is, but I decided to add a colorful border to match the pyjamas I made as well.

With the same stencils I stamped some fabric I had and created some pyjamas. I used mostly the stars and a few M's on the body.

I used the

Banyan T-shirt pattern-

just added some long sleeves. I love all the

Figgy's patterns

- so stylish and fresh. I cannot wait for their new collection.

And I made some

Titchy Threads Fancy Pant Leggings

for the bottoms. I am so excited because I've made plenty of FPL's before, but Laura recently added some bigger sizes to her pattern ( 0-3mths to 10 years old) and I made Mister M his first pair! He loves them. I love them.

The Fancy Pants Leggings are part of the

Sew Fab Bundle pattern sale

that is going on until october 8th. Check it out, 26 pdf patterns for 29$. How cool is that? You can also check out the

Titchy Thread website

for the pattern and some pretty cool skinny jeans are next in line... I can't wait! Laura's pattern are always so professional.

So you need to check out the

Handmade Charlotte Stencils

. They come in sets and are so cool. There are scissors in my set I cannot wait to use- maybe for me this time. I just love creating my own fabric!

The stencil are awesome, lots of great ones for so many fun craft ideas.... by the way they are available at Michaels and online too- check them all out


Sorry for the terrible photos- my camera is wonky again! Hopefully this time they will give me a new one. I hate having a lemon... I rather have a strawberry! hihihi...

Good night!



MishMash Friday... Getting KCW ready!

It's been a bit of a crazy week and I'm so happy it's Friday! Last weekend I had the privilege of testing Elegance & Elephants new pattern "the bubble pocket shorts", I made Miss E a pair of the sailor version and it really is adorable. I should have better photos next week- but just in case you wanted to be one of the first to get the pattern, it's now available for purchase.

And this weekend is going to be just as crazy. It's my mom birthday and we are going to Platsburg for the day (Hello Target shopping!) and the other reason is because...
... I'll be preparing for KCW- you know that crazy week of sewing I do every season for my kids. I am particularly excited this year because of all the great connections and wonderful friends I've made in the sewing community since the last edition. I feel like I won't be alone this time around and well surrounded. Also have you seen the new KCW website- wow!
I knew KCW was around the corner, so I did some online fabric shopping- my first experience and I'm sooo happy. I got some Nani Iro fabric from Miss Matatabi and I'm so excited to get sewing. Check out this lovely etsy shop- it's filled withsome beautiful fabric I tell you.
Now, I bought my Nani Iro fabric in part because of all the wonderful inspiration I got from the Japanese Sewing Book Series over at you & mie. I figured it was about time I used my Japanese Books...
And Sanae is always such a great source of inspiration wether on her bog or Pinterest -check both out!!! I'm not sure who has more Japanese books for kids- one thing for sure is that she uses them for sewing, whereas I just look at the pretty pictures. Shame on me!!! Not this time...
I also got the Bubble Dress Pattern by Straight Grain. I am so excited to make this dress, I've admired and pinned it a gazillion times. I know Miss E will be a doll in it- as cute as An's daughter? I'm not sure, but pretty close!
I also got a few Figgy's Patterns - remember the E-Fab Sewing Pattern Sale? I got those there and I can't wait for their next sale coming up at the end of the summer, just in time for Fall!!! So, I'll be making the kids some of these Banyan pants. Maybe a tee or two too and other patterns too...
And finally I just recently discovered Lou Bee Clothing patterns through Max California's blog and look how cute that Tank dress/ tunic is! I will be adding that pattern to my list of things to do... Check out the blog for some great inspiration...

Well, there shall be lots of sewing going on next week and if you need some inspiration check out my Kiddo... Sew Cute Pinterest Board or any other board actually. I'll be Instagramming along the way as well as Facebooking and Flickring. So hopefully you are following it all already!

Let me know if you are sewing along and where I can see your creations, I'd love to be one of your cheerleaders!!!

Wishing you all an AWESOME weekend!
