20 garçons + Vêtements Tutoriels! The boys clothes is probably my biggest challenge… there just isn’t a out there! So the tutorials I am sharing are a mixture of how to make your own patterns (mostly from store bought) and recycle or ‘upcycle’ from existing clothing. Anyways I hope that someone can get some use out of these because I know that boy patterns & tutorials are few & far between! on the cutting floor Free Sewing Pattern: Lisa Top Thank you for stopping by today.

Northern Lights Capelet I knit this Northern Lights Capelet in the spirit of the earliest knitters, to bring light and warmth into the darker, colder months. Wear this cropped little cape under or over your coat, a streamlined layer that blocks arctic air from necks and shoulders and looks very pretty doing it! Knit up in a soft palette of Purl Soho’s beautiful Flax Down, this Capelet is a blend of baby alpaca, extra fine merino and linen. The subtle shades of the Nordic-inspired colorwork glow like a February sunrise. A perfect cure for the winter blues!
Wrap up in Style with this DIY Wool Blanket Coat You can make this super easy blanket coat with a blanket and a belt you might already have around the house. Fold the blanket in half so the short ends are together. Measure and mark the center of the blanket. Place a plate at the top center of the fold so half of it is on the blanket and half is off.

Crochet Hobo Bag I saw this bag and it totally drove me crazy! For days! Can you imagine? As alluring as it could be, I had to restrain myself from placing another order to Knitpicks. They have some really wonderful wool yarns that are so soft and easy to crochet. I placed my first and only order of Wool of the Andes chunky and was very delighted at the quality as well as the price. Couture This week I tackled a sewing project that truly scared me. A kind friend who is done having kids gave me her new-ish infant car seat. I am so glad I didn't have to buy one, but the old one was a little boyish: And a little boring.
Craft x Stew I’ve had a lot of fun updating this page. It was first posted in 2008 and a lot of what was new and stylish then, became outdated over the years. In addition, my own taste has changed over the years, and has become a lot less fussy. So, if you’re looking for a clean and modern aesthetic, you’ll find it here. Home sewing projects allow you to coordinate your entire decor for just the cost of a yard or two of fabric. For example, my bathroom in my house in Baltimore had pink, white and black tiles.
DIY Gift Tutorial: Lip Balm Holder I saw a picture of a lip balm holder on Pinterest, but there weren’t any instructions. I always lose my lip balm in the bottom of my purse! I thought it was a great idea to use up fabric scraps and a cute little something to include with other gifts for Christmas, so I decided to figure out how to make my own. It’s super simple, and you could easily do the sewing by hand without a sewing machine. Update: After making several, I’ve made some adjustments to this tutorial. Desk chair transformation Last Christmas my in Laws gave Ken and I matching Desk chairs. We only had one and it was pretty broken. Ever since I’ve had a love-hate relationship with it. I love it because it’s so comfortable, actually one of the best I’ve ever had. My back does so much better with this chair, BUT it’s all dark and leather, in hot days I feel like I get stuck on it and it hurts when I get up plus it’s cold in the winter and I just do not like the look of it.
