Crafting

When you love to sew…

Recently my husband and I decided that I should make our daughter a Pinkie Pie stuffy for Easter. The one we were planning to buy for her was sold out. This decision led to a trip to Fabricville to buy the materials needed…

Sewing Clothes:

Some really nice French Terry that was on buy 1 meter and get 2 free called out to me andI came home with some extra fabric! The day after the trip to Fabricville some fabric I had ordered from Water Tower Textiles and Funky Monkey Fabrics arrived. Most of the week and the weekend was spent sewing new clothes for the kids.  Mr. T had been asking for a Superhero uniform, not a costume, for quite some time. So I hacked the Jolly Roger Raglan pattern from Patterns for Pirates and added a cape. I made the two older kids each a pair of Harem Pants from Max and Meena.

My sister-in-law over at Sewing with Rascals had shown me some pants she had made from a pattern from Apple Tree Patterns. Looking at their site I found a few patterns that I liked and made each of the kids a Bunnyhug Hoodie and the Grow Along Pants. I also made Mr. Moo a Grow On Romper, but I need to attach the snaps so I don’t have a picture of that just yet.

I made myself a Tami Revolution Hoodie from New Horizons Designs but I haven’t managed to get a picture.

Now I’m running out of fabric and anxiously awaiting my next paycheck in the hopes that I may be able to get a little more! I just purchased a hoodie pattern for hubby from 5 out of 4 Patterns. I’m hoping that will help convince him that I need more fabric! 😉

Any recommendations for places to get decent quality but inexpensive fabrics?
