Any guess to what my movie choice was???

Boy Bundle: SS Field Research Pants


I am so excited about this post! 
One, because it's BOY sewing! 
Two, because these pants are some of the most coolest things and a must have in your sewing stash. 
Three, cause I don't get to spot light this kid often and I'm so glad I get too today!

I'm part of the Bundle Up Blog Tour and I just love the idea of a bundle completely centered around the boys. The song "Let's Hear It for the Boy" keeps running through my head every time I think of this bundle.
Perfect is it not?

Reverse Applique Tutorial


It's not a secret that I love to sew with knit. It's comfy and awesome and most importantly it's "practical". I have never met a kid that hates knit fabric, but I have met many who wont wear anything else! 
So today I'm sharing my personal review about knit from Girl Charlee as well as share my Reverse Applique Tutorial.

Knit Headband Tutorial


Today I'm part of The Benson Street's Back to School Series!
There are tons of great ideas for back to school, so check it out!
With school starting soon, I have had hair on my mind. It's not like the summer where my kids can look like street urchins on account we aren't going anywhere. I also like my kids hair to be up out of their faces for school. With hair out of the way, they have a clear view of the board. At least hope they do.....
So, without further ado, lets get started on some knit headbands!

I have been so excited about this pattern by Sew Straight & Gather! First off, it's knit. I was pretty much sold at that. Everything else is a bonus.

Inseam Skirt Pocket Pattern & Tutorial


Today I'm participating in Skirting the Issue. There have been tons of adorable skirt patterns shared this month and me and my son, Gavin, got to go up and be a part of the sewing get-together. He had a blast and is so proud about the skirt he made. It was a great experience with him.
I thought I could share an easy inseam pocket that you can add to any skirt.
You can grab the measurements for a simple skirt here.
Then save this picture and print it off (make sure you don't have it "fit to size") and follow the instructions below!
