2021-Dec: Colorblock dolman top


This is truly not the greatest photo (ha), but it is the greatest top! I made it for myself from various french terry knits and it's very cozy and warm!

2021-Dec: Little floral bag - clutch - pouch

Just a little envelope-style storage bag I made for E.

2021-Nov: Simple blue sweater

I made this top for myself out of a soft sweater knit. I love how it came out, especially the fun bishop sleeves! Next time I may add a *little* more length to the sleeves.

Just like for my kids, I added a tiny tag (of Liberty bias tape) in the back for easy dressing! ;)

2021-Nov: Koala and sloth hoodie sweatshirt jacket

I made this cute jacket for C out of sweatshirt knit printed with her favorite: koalas! Even though I made it in 2021, she still fits it 1.5 years later!

I thought I'd show some fun details: I added some Liberty bias tape where the hood meets the body, plus made a hanging loop. I also used some Liberty cording for the drawstring.

2021-Nov: New sleeves for purple top

I had bought a top with 3/4 sleeves, but those aren't my favorite, so I didn't wear it much. I decided to add length so it was a proper long-sleeved top! I sewed on some nice purple interlock knit as long cuffs. Now I wear it a lot in the colder months!

2021-Sept: Flower and Pokemon zippered Pencil Cases!

I made these zippered pencil cases for my girls for the start of school. E requested appliqued Pokemon on hers, so I made it happen!

The Pokemon outer and both linings are made from a sturdy canvas.

I love how they came out! C's flower case now holds art supplies at home, but E still brings hers to school every day!

2021-August: knit flower yoga shorts


Just a comfy pair of knit cotton interlock shorts for me (with pockets)! These have become a favorite for yoga class. ^_^
