Yoda knit hat

I knitted a Yoda hat for my son a while ago but wanted to share it.

IMG_20170725_081316_582.jpgMy husband really wanted a Yoda knit hat for our son, I was going to buy one for him  cause  I can only knit scarves  and my crocheting skills are horrible. But I found this you tube video and you can do the whole thing using a circular loom which makes it soooo much easier and quicker to knit a hat. The ears can also be done on the loom which is pretty neat. I used to loom knit Barbie dresses as  a kid so this was a piece of cake.

Sewing Brindlle and Twig ringer kids tee

20170716_225503

Hi everyone,

So I made the long sleeve version of the Brindlle and twig ringer tee.

The instructions are amazing. They have pictures of each step. And even instruction on printing and constructing the pdf  pattern. And did I mention this pattern is free?!

I made a size 3-4 year old shirt for my son even though my son is 18 months cause he’s a big boy and already wearing 2 year  old  clothing.

The shirt is made out of cotton/spandex fabric with anchors on it. So cute. This was also my first time using ribbed knit. And I loved it. It’s a lot easier to stretch and sew than using the same stretch fabric as the shirt. At least in my opinion. My husband really liked the nauticle fabric, and asked if I could make him something soon😊.

I will definitely be making their hoodie (also a free pattern). And purchasing some pants patterns. Check out their site.

I learned how to sew

Hi everyone

In January I was finishing up my year of maternity leave and was getting ready to go back to work. I had so much anxiety and needed an  outlet. I had fortunately received (picked out of the garbage) a sewing machine which my mother in law was going throw out from one of her estate sales. I learned how to sew by watching a YouTube video that Gertie (Gretchen Hirsch) had made. It is such a no nonsense video and my first project were her napkins, then I did the clutch (lol mine looked more like a pencil case because of the fabric I used) . But this video gave me a running start.

If you’re planning on learning to sew. I highly recommend this video 😊

Happy Sewing!
