The Hally Dress

Oh, hey, I am blogging! :) (I miss blogging, I miss sewing every day...) Summer is still in full swing around here. Usually we have summery days until at least mid October. And sometimes those are the perfect summer days, with the best beach days. So, I am still sewing things for our summer wardrobe. This is my latest make. It's the Hally Casual Dress, one of the patterns available through One Thimble #16, a digital sewing magazine that was out a couple of days ago. I am joining today the official OT16 blog tour, follow along with us to get to know several new PDF patterns and be inspired!

Baby & Kids Sun Hat Sewing Patterns - 20+ Sewing Patterns

Summer around here means a lot of sun and heat for at least 4 months! I am always worried about protecting my kids from it. I mean, kids need sun but sometimes it is just so strong that it might do them more harm then good. That is why wearing a sun hat is always a must! As a mom that sews, I am always looking for all the best sewing patterns for kids' sun hats and caps. I have put together a list and thought I would share it with you all. Hope you enjoy it!

Know about any other great PDF Pattern for baby & kids' sun hats? Please let me know!

A Pom Pom Beret and a Teddy Bear (OT15)

This little munchkin just turned 7 months. (Seven!) He seats straight, he eats soup and smashed fruit, he claps his hands, he sleeps all night, oh wait, not really... he is teething so if you have kids you know how it goes... He smiles a lot, and "talks" all the time, and loves to cuddle. And we love him. <3  

As promised, here I am again today (wait, two blog posts in one day?! Am I back to the good ol' days?) showing off two more patterns from One Thimble issue 15This issue is jam packed of exclusive patterns, tutorials and articles. Love this digital sewing magazine!

The Phillipa Blouse - One Thimble is Out!

One Thimble issue 15 is out! I have been collaborating with One Thimble on promotional blog tours since issue 5 (you can see all blog posts by typing "one thimble" on the search box, on your right) and it was love at first sight. It's such an amazing digital sewing magazine! Always jam packed with great articles and sewing tutorials and tips, and lots of sewing patterns! For issue 15 I have picked three patterns, for my girls and my little wee baby. On this blog post I am showcasing the Phillipa Blouse and sharing a full review on this issue, and the other makes will be shown later today.
