I have made this a few times already, so I thought I would finally get some pictures!  I saw the “stuffing” part as a grilled cheese sandwich recipe, so I took it a step further and modified it for a […]

I have gone back and forth over how I update this blog and the content.  I have decided that I am going to move my crafty stuff over to another blog I have had for several years.  It was a […]


This was the last tester version of the Rayann’s Retro top.  The length was pretty close to the original one I did, so you can see she shortened it up.  I made it in an 8 width and 10 length. […]


So, here we are…another pattern test.  Hope you all aren’t getting sick of this yet. Simple Life Pattern Co. – Phoebe I really wasn’t sure the girl would want to wear this, because, yet again…dress.  I figured if I put […]


This pattern testing thing is sure getting me to dive deep into my stash fabrics!  It is also making me have a sewing timetable, where I have to get them done, so it is has been a great impetus to […]


I am not a big fan of going outside when it is cold out (I obviously live in the wrong climate). However, we do occasionally venture outside for some winter outside activities…as long as they don’t take too long. We […]

Anya informed me that their 4th grade school performance was to be a 50’s/60’s theme.  She actually gave me a good month head’s up to let me know about it.  I think she is finally getting clued in that I […]


Part of the fun of making costumes, whether for cosplay or Halloween, is that I like to try new things to make them more authentic.  In making the Connor costume for Kai, there are LOTS of new things to try. […]


Well, by her anyways. I tested for this dress for Simple Life Pattern Company, since she needed a size 10 tester.  I want to try to use up some of my quilting cotton stash that is just sitting there in […]


Time for another World’s Toughest Rodeo!   We made sure Kai had his allergy meds before we went to the rodeo, and he was good to go!  Both kids got soda and other sugary treats so they would be able […]


Yet again I tested a pattern. Actually two this time.  Anya thought the top looked cool, so I volunteered to test and got picked for it. I really don’t mind testing too much, as long as they give me at […]
